Lakers News: Gasol dealing with knee issues

Posted by shawn cassidy on November 27, 2012 at 11:30 PM


Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol has been playing through tendinitis in both knees, a condition that has influenced the four-time All-Star's performance."It was just something that started flaring up in the preseason," Gasol told reporters after practice Monday. "I didn't want to stop, and I don't want to stop now. I just don't have that luxury."

The tendinitis is more prevalent in his left knee, but Gasol began wearing straps on both knees this season as a preventive measure. The pounding Gasol's legs took during former coach Mike Brown's lengthy practices may have contributed to the pain's persistence, according to a source with knowledge of Gasol's thinking.

"It's been bothering me for a while, but again, you play through it and try to keep it under control," Gasol said. "It's a little limiting, but it is what it is. There's not much I can do about it."

I like how Brown is blamed. How about blaming Gasol, or Gasol should hold himself accountable for playing overseas every year in the summer. I continue to feel that the Lakers are just to old, and banged up. Not like the Celtics. KG has been taken care of, and so has Pierce. Kobe, and Gasol play heavy minutes, and they play every summer. Plus Kobe has been banged up  year after year.

Blame it on Brown, now that he's gone.
