Spanish National Team coach Sergio Scariolo thinks there’s a chance Grizzlies center Marc Gasol, who broke his foot a month ago, plays at the Olympic Games in Rio.
“Marc is hoping to be there, but health comes first and the main thing is he recovers 100 percent,” Scariolo told the Spanish media yesterday. “When the time comes, he will tell us what’s his situation and his club’s opinion because with Marc there’s a lot of factors at play. I wish it was only up to him to make the decision.”
Gasol, who had surgery a couple of weeks ago, won Olympic silver medals with Spain in both 2008 and 2012. He last played with the National Team at the 2014 World Cup.
