Pau Gasol To Get MRI On Sprained Ankle


Pau Gasol is hurting and the Lakers need to find out his long term prognosis.

According to ESPN L.A., Gasol plans to undergo an MRI on his sprained right ankle. The Lakers’ suffered a 114-108 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday.

Gasol, who sat out the Lakers’ practice on Saturday to rest the ankle, called the injury “a little sore” after the game. He struggled mightily against the Blazers, finishing with six points on 3-for-15 shooting and a season-low five rebounds in 25 minutes.

“I just missed some wide-open shots,” Gasol said. “I missed them early, I missed them late.”
