Already playing without Dwight Howard (shoulder), the Lakers will almost certainly have to play even smaller after Pau Gasol left the game vs. Brooklyn in the 4th quarter with a strained plantar fascia.
According to ESPN:
Gasol, who left Barclays Center on crutches, admitted he is “worried” about the injury. The four-time All-Star is scheduled to undergo an MRI on the foot Wednesday after the Lakers travel to Boston.
“I tweaked my fascia in the first half, so I was dealing with quite a bit of soreness in the second half,” said Gasol.
“I was dealing with it, but that play when I tried to jump off of it and try go block the shot, just as I took off, I felt a pop in the bottom of my foot on my fascia and I couldn’t get up. I’m worried about it.”
