Lakers News: Pau Gasol Suffers Right Foot Injury In Win Vs. Nets


The Los Angeles Lakers were able to extend their winning streak to a three games after taking down the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night at the Barclays Center without an injured Dwight Howard and a suspended Metta World Peace.

As if the team’s injury problems weren’t bad enough, Pau Gasol suffered a plantar fascia strain late in the fourth quarter and didn’t return after heading to the locker room with athletic trainer Gary Vitti according to Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register via Twitter:



Gasol’s status is uncertain moving forward. The team will await the results of the MRI.

The injury problems continue for the Lakers with Howard day-to-day with the shoulder injury, Jordan Hill out of the season and Gasol possibly out considerable time with his foot injury.



    Sorry to see anyone get hurt, but when Pau went out of the game late, I felt good about the Lakers’ chances… Otherwise, it would have been the same ole same ole; Ole’ to the win… Why this isn’t obvious to anyone else is beyond me.

    I hope it’s nothing too serious. Hate to see anyone get hurt and Pau’s been stepping up lately so I hope everything’s ok and he won’t be out for long.

      I am surprised no one took my sarcastic bait by commenting :)
