Lakers forward Pau Gasol has been working all summer to return from a knee procedure he underwent back in May. The treatment was an attempt to alleviate the tendinosis Pau was experiencing in his knees.
Gasol has been keeping us all up to date with his rehab progress via social media. Recently, he’s been upping his exercise program; Gasol has been doing everything from mountain biking to swimming, and now he can finally return to the court.
According to Gasol’s Instagram post, the Spaniard returned to the basketball court today:
I missed it so much… Making progress. #mirandoadelante #lookingahead
It’s good to hear that Gasol is making progress. The Lakers will definitely need Pau to be 100 percent or close in order to be competitive and make the playoffs next season.
