Pau Gasol felt a “pop” when he went down late in the game, will get an MRI on Wednesday

As the Lakers start to string a few wins together, this happens.

Pau Gasol left the game on Tuesday night during the fourth quarter after he fell to the ground after contesting a Brook Lopez shot attempt.

It was unclear at the time what had happened, but after the game, the Lakers billed it as a plantar fasciitis strain in his right foot.

Here’s where the injury happened:
