Default Article: OC Register - Persistent pain likely to delay Gasol's return

It has pained Pau Gasol to watch his team the past two games.

Unfortunately, he won't be able to help until the pain subsides in his sprained left ankle.

That might be next week rather than tonight after he tested it Saturday at the team's practice facility.

"It's still pretty sore," Gasol said. "I don't know. It's still doubtful. We'll see how it feels tomorrow. Hopefully it will get better tomorrow. If not, maybe take a couple of days in between and go for Wednesday."

Gasol will see how it responds today before the Lakers play Washington tonight. Their next game after that is Wednesday against Portland.
Gasol did some half-court work and ran in a straight line, but he still has pain and soreness when he turns and does other basketball moves. The club might be best suited to use the extra two days and target Wednesday for his return.

painfully, i agree with you... they do need to be as close to 100% for the playoff run more than the remainder of the regular season. for now, they just need to win enough games to finish in the top 8.

I want Gasol back, but at the same moment, I want him back healthy so that he can adequetly contribute.


Anyway... the lakers need to focus on running their offence and actually playing some defence. With out those two things being done correctly, no player coming back is going to help them change what they have faultered at lately.
