Pau Gasol, who felt a "pop" in his right foot in Tuesday's win over the Nets, could be out at least a month if the MRI reveals that he tore his plantar fascia.

He'll undergo an MRI on Wednesday in Boston. Gasol has been battling plantar fasciitis all season, and tearing the plantar fascia would put him out of commission for about a month or so. There are three degrees of tears, and given Gasol left the arena on crutches, it doesn't look like we're going to see him on the floor at any point soon. Earl Clark and Metta World Peace are locked in as must-own, must-start players, while Antawn Jamison, who played 37 minutes on Tuesday, will also see extended run.

If it is his plantar fascia, and he did hear a pop, then he is certainly in some trouble. It doesn't take forever to heal, but that means it's certainly past the point of your basic fasciitis.

Better hope Dwight is back soon, and that his injuries don't linger too much.

I dont mind just Dwight being out, I dont mind just Gasol being out, its not that big a deal that Hill is out for the year, but they cant all be out at the same time. We already saw how that worked out. An 0-5 stretch that caused them to go 8 games below 500. If that happens again they might as well start looking to next year.

That's a huge loss, especially with losing Jordan Hill for the rest of the season and now Howard having shoulder issues and a back that's still healing/getting stronger.

4 to 6 weeks? He better hope he didn't fracture anything. Joakim Noah is battling fascitis for our club and it's a tough injury to fully heal from, and he doesn't have a tear. If Gasol's is torn, it'll take him a long while to get over it.

The Lakers can't afford these injuries right now with them attempting to get into the playoff chase. Maybe D'Antoni will choose to play small now that Steve Blake is back?

I think Laker fans wanted to trade him because he was the only viable trade piece the Lakers had. After struggling with numerous injuries to their stars and switching from one terrible coach to the next, Lakers fans wanted to get some viable pieces for Pau in order to bolster their bench, which is among the worst in the league. Not sure where you are getting the fact Lakers fans wanted to simply get rid of him, and the suggestion of such a sentiment is simply stupid.

With a depleted roster, coupled with a horrible bench and an incompetent coach, the Lakers were dealt numerous bad blows this season and as a result, will most likely miss the playoffs.

Just as long as you last in bed which is 30 seconds.

But on the real I'm not a dupe and you were probably one of the laker fans screaming to trade Gasol now look at you :facepalm:

Actually that's not really true. Rupturing it, which is what it sounds like happened, is probably the best thing. He'll be out but once he returns he'll have no problem. I had the exact same thing. The doctor said either take steroid shots in the foot until hopefully the inflammation goes down, or just rupture the damn thing. I did and I've been fine ever since. Plantars fasciitis blows though.

This is what happens when you have old guys playing 30+ minutes. The entire team is full of injured players with no bench players.

Gasol out 6 weeks


Pau Gasol has a partial tear of his plantar fascia and is expected to be out at least six weeks, league source tells @CBSSports.


One option for Gasol is rehab, with estimated timetable of 6-8 weeks. Surgery would mean 10-12 weeks, with better chance of full recovery.

It's a lost season for the lakers, might as well get him the surgery

I'm not going to say I don't hate the Lakers, but I'm not happy about the way their season is going. It's no fun beating them if they really can't compete because of injuries. The saying injuries aren't an excuse doesn't apply for them anymore. It's not an excuse, that has been their season.
