Ronald Tillery: Griz center Marc Gasol has a broken right foot and will be out indefinitely, sources told The Commercial Appeal
Medical tests revealed a mid-foot fracture and the 7-footer could miss the remainder of this season. He has been ruled out indefinitely. It is unclear exactly when Gasol suffered the injury. Last Saturday, Gasol and Griz coach Dave Joerger acknowledged that Gasol was playing with an injury.

Gasol was cleared to play and not at risk to further injure himself.
