Lakers' power forward Pau Gasol received treatment for his groin injury on Monday as he was given a gruesome injection to speed up his recovery.
Gasol admitted that he first felt pain in his groin while on the team's seven-game road trip. He didn't feel especially limited last Tuesday night, against the Indiana Pacers.
The Lakers don't consider the injury to be too serious, but they will want him back as soon as possible, with a possible trade on the cards for him.
Today he took to Twitter to update fans on his recovery.
"Today I got a PRP shot to help the healing of my groin injury. I will work hard to be back with the team as soon as possible," he said.
The Lakers' 7-footer sat out the first couple of minutes of the third quarter against Indiana last week but was able to finish his last game with 21 points and 13 rebounds, but the Pacers pulled away.
LA don't just want to get him back to improve the team. Gasol is currently rumored to be on the trade block, and the more games he plays the more he will be worth in a potential move.
