Source: Pau Gasol Out At Least Six Weeks
Pau Gasol was worried about a pop he felt in his right foot Tuesday night, and for good reason. The Lakers’ forward is expected to miss at least six weeks with a partial tear of his plantar fascia and may need surgery, a league source told CBSSports.com.
One option for Gasol is rehab, which would involve an absence of 6-8 weeks. Surgery would result in Gasol missing 10-12 weeks, but would provide a better chance of a full recovery, the source said.
