Possible Injury To Pau Gasol

The LA Times reports

Lakers forward Pau Gasol underwent a sonogram that showed a possible tear in his right hamstring, and he is not expected to play on the team’s upcoming two-game road trip, the team said.

Gasol also had a more complex MRI exam today on his hamstring, and those results will be known by Tuesday.

No results yet, but that’s the big news from practice Monday in El Segundo, ahead of the Lakers’ first road trip of the season. Phil Jackson used the word “tear” speaking to the media and a sonogram on Gasol’s hamstring may indicate that possibility.

“The last diagnostic test we did showed he had a slight tear, so we wanted to see what that progress was,” Jackson said when asked if the MRI was precautionary in nature. “I think it’s going to turn out really well.”

Something to keep tabs on over the next day or two.

Hopefully, it’s nothing serious, just a minor injury.
