Gasol, Nash to Be Healthy by Start of Camp?
(Steve) Nash and (Pau) Gasol were miserable for the Lakers last season, missing a combined 65 games and struggling at both ends of the court.
“I expect both those guys to participate in training camp. Kobe is obviously the wild card right now,” Kupchak said.
“I spoke to Pau about two weeks ago for 45 minutes. He said he feels a lot better than he did a month ago. He was optimistic that he’d be ready for training camp. He does plan on playing three or four more years, and there’s no reason why he shouldn’t with his skill level.
“We saw Nash out here last week. If I had to guess, he feels he’s in the 90th-percentile of where he wants to be. We still have two more months.”
