Hey, remember this inspiring quote from January?
Gasol is playing through a sore shoulder and Achilles: "I like to push it until the wheels fall off. Hopefully, it won't get worse."— K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) January 17, 2016
He was averaging 31.6 minutes per game then, and averaging 33.0 minutes a game since. And now...
Gasol had MRI on right knee. Could be out a bit, per Hoiberg.— K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) March 13, 2016
So, that's great.
Gasol is definitely out at least the next two games, as he's not traveling with the team to Toronto.
There's some good news, as it looks like Jimmy Butler will return (again).
Hoiberg said there's a plan for Butler's minutes when he returns. Won't reveal it.— K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) March 13, 2016
Yup, we out here playing checkers, while Fred Hoiberg is playing Candyland.
