Chicago Bulls forward Pau Gasol plans to play in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The five-time All-Star has missed the past two games because of a strained left hamstring. While coach Tom Thibodeau wouldn't say if he will play Thursday, Gasol later made it clear that he expects to be in uniform with Chicago down 3-2 and facing elimination at home. ''I'll be out there,'' Gasol said. At what percentage? ''I don't know, but whatever percentage I will be, that's what I'll give,'' he said. Yahoo! Sports

And yet, Gasol, who missed his second straight game, refused to rule out playing in Thursday's Game 6. “(Game 5) is critical, but I can’t run,” Gasol said before the 106-101 loss to the Cavaliers on Tuesday night. “If I’m able to run and play at a certain percentage above 50 percent, I’ll try to give (Game 6) a go. Unfortunately, hamstrings are tricky and not like other areas. … Try to do the right thing for our team and for our chances.” Chicago Tribune
