Pau Gasol Has A Torn Plantar Fascia, Will Miss Six Weeks Of Being Included In Trade Rumors

You all won't have Pau Gasol to push around anymore. At least for the next six weeks, anyway. Gasol left last night's Lakers-Nets game after hearing a "pop" in his foot, and he has now been diagnosed with a tear in his plantar fascia.

Bummer. Gasol's season was already going down a sad road: Mike D'Antoni gave his starting job to Earl Clark, his numbers are way below his career averages, and he's been tossed into more trade rumors than anyone else in the NBA. On the bright side, he should have a lot more time to send all kinds of awesome and informative tweets.

That is so true, Pau.
