With three games remaining in the season, Gasol said it was unlikely that he would be able to return. Before the final home game of the season against the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday, the team officially ruled Gasol out according to Lakers reporter Mike Trudell:

With Gasol becoming an unrestricted free agent this upcoming off-season, it’s very possible that he may have played his final game as a Laker.
