Pau Gasol limped into the Lakers’ practice facility Monday, leaning on a pair of giant crutches. Gasol rejoined his team after the Lakers finished a seven-game trip.
The Lakers forward-center confirmed he will not have surgery on the torn plantar fascia in his right foot. The team expects Gasol to be out a minimum of six to eight weeks with the injury.
“He’s fine,” said Coach Mike D’Antoni. “He’s on crutches and he’ll probably be there for a while but we’ll get him back as soon as we can.”
Kobe Bryant said he was frustrated by Gasol’s unfortunate injury.
“Every time we’re playing well, we find a rhythm of how we want to go about things, it seems like we get hit with another injury,” said Bryant. “Now we need to find another way to go about it. It’s a moving target right now.”
