Lakers’ Pau Gasol to have MRI on right foot

Pau Gasol [1] will undergo an MRI [2] on his right foot after straining his plantar fascia in Tuesday’s Lakers win over the Nets [3]. He’s scheduled to have the procedure on Wednesday after the Lakers travel to Boston for Thursday’s game against the Celtics [4].

Gasol left Barclays Center on crutches. He said he tweaked the fascia in the first half and was playing on it for much of the game.

“I was dealing with it, but that play when I tried to jump off of it and try go block the shot [by Brooklyn’s Brook Lopez [5]], just as I took off, I felt a pop in the bottom of my foot on my fascia and I couldn’t get up,” Gasol said. “I’m worried about it.”

“I’ve been dealing with it for a couple months now,” he added. “But I never felt anything like I did tonight. Right now it’s a certain level of strain. We just don’t know how bad it is.”

The timetable for Gasol’s return is uncertain and will likely be determined after his MRI. He has missed 13 games this season due to tendinitis in both knees and a concusion.
