Re: Pau Gasol hopes to get clearance for running drills soon
The additional pain Pau Gasol sensed in his right foot after playing a game of two-on-two Saturday will keep him sidelined both tonight against Sacramento and Monday at Phoenix.
Coach Mike D’Antoni hopes the three days before the Lakers play Friday against Washington will give Gasol enough time to heal the torn plantar fascia in his right foot, an injury that has kept him sidelined for 19 games. But Gasol declined to pencil a specific return date.
“I don’t want to put any date,” Gasol said, “so there are no disappointments or surprises.”
