Pau Gasol: Facing long spell out due to foot injury

Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol has been ruled out for around two months after suffering a foot injury in Tuesday's win over the Brooklyn Nets.

The Spaniard picked up the injury while attempting to block a shot from the Nets' Brook Lopez with just over four minutes remaining in the contest.

He tried to play through the problem but eventually had to be taken out of the game.

Gasol has since been examined by foot specialist Dr Kenneth Jung, who confirmed that the 32-year-old has a partial tear in his plantar fascia.

The injury is a further blow to the ambitions of the Lakers, who are currently outside the play-off positions despite acquiring Dwight Howard and Steve Nash before the start of the season.
