Lakers’ Pau Gasol expected to be out 2 weeks with groin injury
Gasol, 33, will be evaluated again near the All-Star break, D’Antoni said. He aggravated the injury in a loss to the Charlotte Bobcats last week.
Gasol averaged 20.8 points and 11.9 rebounds last month and was originally supposed to miss three games with the injury. He revealed that he had platelet-rich plasma therapy recently to help him heal quicker.
He continues to be the subject of trade rumors with the Phoenix Suns. The NBA’s trade deadline is Feb. 20.
