Pau Gasol limped into the Lakers' practice facility Monday, leaning on a pair of giant crutches. Gasol rejoined his team after the Lakers finished a seven-game road trip.
The Lakers forward-center confirmed that he will not have surgery on the torn plantar fascia in his right foot. The team expects Gasol to be out a minimum of six to eight weeks with the injury.
"He's fine," said Coach Mike D'Antoni. "He's on crutches and he'll probably be there for a while but we'll get him back as soon as we can."
