Lakers News: Pau Gasol Aggravates Groin Injury; MRI scheduled for Saturday

Two-time NBA champion Pau Gasol has been putting up All-Star-caliber numbers over the last month or so, but it hasn’t been enough to get the Los Angeles Lakers back on track.

On Friday, Gasol simply couldn’t keep up with the red-hot Al Jefferson of the Charlotte Bobcats who lit up the veteran for 40 points. One of the main reasons for Gasol’s defensive struggles may have been a re-aggravated groin injury, according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

In the loss to the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday, Gasol suffered the groin injury in the first half, but was able to return in the third quarter. Despite sitting out of practice and nursing the groin injury over the last two days, Gasol may be back on the shelf after battling through the injury against the Bobcats.

The injury to Gasol is just another in an endless string of injured Lakers – including Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar and Xavier Henry.

    You could see the pain on his face during the game, I hope it not serious as we can ill afford to lose his production.

    Alright Lakers fans, we can expect to be somewhere to be in the top 5 in this year’s draft. I predict Gasol being out for at least 3-5 games, maybe a little more, he also has a foot problem right now.

  • Daryl Peek

    I hate to say this, but of course he did. There’s and injury after every game it seems. I can’t help but start to wonder if the team is pulling a slick lame duck tank job the way this keeps on… SIGH

    • Dragon7s

      I’ve been thinking the same thing over the last month or so.

  • Daryl Peek

    They might as well hire a full time MRI tech, buy a MRI scanner to be placed in trainers room and do daily scans after practice coupled with having everyone scanned after every game to serve as early detection measures smh

    Someone from the Lakers last title run, be it Kobe, Phil, Fisher, Pau, anybody, must have sold their soul to the devil and he’s now collecting like a gangster. I can’t remember a team from any sport ravaged by this much injury. It’s like an NFL team that loses all it’s QBs or an MLB team losing all it’s starting pitchers at once.

    take your rest. The lakers wont make the playoffs, but a good draft.

    We really need that draft.

  • LakersHeatBeef

    The Lakers are just a terrible team this season.Pulled hamstring,groin and many other injuries are making this the tank of all tanks.Get out while you still can if you hate losing it’s upon us and they are tanking it is now confirmed.Losing is becoming the habit here and tanking is the name of the game.

    Why was he playing with a tweeked groin in the first place?

  • roseducanna

    MDA is a terrible coach.Players shoot 3 points not too good but he dont say anything. With 6/26 how you win?Players injury it happen because coach say play faster and faster. Before FARMA injury he play from last 2 min. of 3nd quarter and full 4th quarter.Coach don’t have system in paint.It is time to fire him.

    • nlruizjr

      It’s way jpast time !!!!!!

  • nlruizjr

    How stupid can MD get, here you have an injured Center and instead of resting him and putting in Kaman, he decides to play Gasol, who is limited on lateral movements because of his injured groin and now Gasol has reinjured his groin again and is out for a week or so, doesn’t MD and the FO have an ounce of common sense ??????
