Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol will get ultrasonic treatment on both knees in an attempt to regenerate his tendons.
The Lakers announced Gasol's plan Wednesday.
The team says Gasol will undergo a procedure Thursday that's intended to improve the health of his patellar tendons by removing scar tissue with ultrasonic energy. The procedure will be performed by Dr. Steven Yoon of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Group.
After the Lakers' season ended last month, the 7-foot Spaniard said both of his knees had developed tendinosis - a degeneration of tissue.
Gasol missed 33 games due to injury last season, struggling with a concussion, plantar fasciitis and additional ailments, including his chronically sore knees.
Gasol turns 33 in July. He has one year left on his deal with the Lakers.

The procedure, called FAST, involved debridement through the insertion a probe into both knees. The probe emits ultrasonic energy that eliminates scar tissue without damaging healthy tissue. Dr. Steven Yoon of the Kerlan...
Kobe Bryant claimed in court filings submitted Wednesday that he never gave his mother permission to sell memorabilia from his early basketball career.
Could Kobe Bryant be considered a cheap person? I mean here we go again with his mother trying to sell his stuff. Why won;t he take care of his own mother with some of the millions he has made in the NBA? Why is she trying to sell his things in the first place? Does she need the money to get buy. A better question might be, why is all Kobe’s stuff at his mothers in the first place...
Our friend Stiletto Jill took this to mean that Gasol is going over to Germany to have the Kobe treatments, I said he was going to see Charles Xavier and this is why she is smarter than I am. With that being said, the German treatments seem to work for anyone not named Andrew Bynum.
Gasol was hurt a lot this year with various injuries, but will have a full offseason to recover...
After suffering knee pain during the season, Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol has decided to undergo a procedure Thursday to get rid of all of his scar tissue buildup that he has in both of his knees. This is supposed to be a relatively simple procedure and shouldn’t set him back for the 2013/14 season.

LOS ANGELES In fact, theres no conclusive evidence that the world ends in the spring of 2014, or even that the National Basketball Association will be disbanded and forgotten on or around that date.
None at all.
And yet somehow, the Lakers seem to have built their roster believing that to be true or perhaps believing that there would never be a punitive new CBA, and once said...
The NBA world isn’t just about what you do on the court. We scoured the web for Lakers-related quotations to provide you with the 10 best quotes from the past fourteen days:
I think championship should be an expectation. Realistically we have enough talent here that there will be enough to where our goal is a championship.

In response to his bloodsucking mother, Pamela, arranging to peddle $450,000 worth of memorabilia to Goldin Auctions, Los Angeles Lakers icon Kobe Bryant is in court battling to regain the hundreds of items before the June sale occurs. Selected by the Charlotte Hornets 13th overall in the 1996 NBA Draft, the bulk of mementos come from Bryant’s playing days at Lower Merion High...
This is very weird situation with Kobe and his mom. His mom seems to be upset that Vanessa’s mom got a bigger house that she has, so her way of getting payback, is stealing Kobe’s stuff and auctioning them off.
I don’t know the inner workings of the Bryant family, but regardless of what is going on behind the scenes, that seems a bit petty on her part.
Kobe is suing his mom...
Guys--correct me if I am wrong, but our wives/girlfriends like to claim that it is not the price tag on the gift that counts, but the thought right? As long as it is something that is from the heart and really shows that we care they are cool with it (supposedly).
So we do it. We put our hearts and soul into coming up with the right gift that says what we feel, but doesn&...

Especially if your name is Dwight Howard.
It’s no wonder that he acts like a child on the court and in the locker room… He really is a nine foot tall child....
Seems like an open and shut case to me. It is Kobe’s stuff so if he doesn’t want it to go to auction, his mom shouldn’t be allowed to do it.
The judge agrees with Bean for now.
TMZ has learned a judge issued a temporary restraining order against Goldin Auctions, prohibiting them from selling Kobe’s jerseys, championship rings, trophies, and lots of other stuff until a full...
The Celtics and Lakers are down once again. But are they out? The cities of Boston and Los Angeles are home to the two preeminent franchises in the National Basketball Association. Their names are forever linked with each other, and are forever symmetrical with professional basketball. The Celtics and Lakers. The Lakers and Celtics. However, for the first time in 20 years, both...
First time since 2007 that there isn't a Boston Celtics' or Los Angeles Lakers' team in the second round of the NBA playoffs. These two teams make up 33 NBA titles out of 67 NBA championships (almost half).
Seriously, I hate the Lakers so I am happy they aren't in it. A lot of our readers and fans out there thought the Spurs and Lakers series was going to be entertaining...
