More on Marc Gasol Injury

Peter Edmiston: Chris Wallace on Marc Gasol: "We're still in a fact-finding mode on his injury. I don't want to go into any great particulars other than we're consulting with medical experts available to us, including our own, and coming up with the proper course of action."
In the end, Gasol signed a five-year, $110 million contract extension in July. Memphis wanted to turn that tough Western Conference semifinals series loss to Golden State into a leap of something bigger, and better. And now, this: Gasol fractures his right foot. For now, Grizzlies officials stop short of completely ruling Gasol out for the season, but the possibility is admittedly bleak for a playoff push in April that’ll include him on the court. Doctors are evaluating the need for surgery, which would include the insertion of a pin that moves the rehabilitation and recovery process well into the summer.
The Memphis Grizzlies released today the following statement on behalf of Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace regarding Marc Gasol: “This morning at Campbell Clinic, Marc underwent a thorough evaluation by team physicians. During the course of this evaluation, a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a fracture in his right foot. Marc is a cornerstone of our franchise, and we are focused on getting him healthy. Marc will be out indefinitely and a further update will be provided after the All-Star Break.”
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 started Monday night but departed late in the first quarter of the Grizzlies’ 112-106 overtime loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. Gasol was cleared to play and not at risk to further injure himself.

Warriors could offer deal involving Jordan Poole, Andrew Wiggins, James Wiseman for Durant

Kevin Durant’s quest to find a new home as he waits for a trade from the Brooklyn Nets could take him to a place he knows very well. Appearing on ESPN Radio, Marc J. Spears of Andscape called the Golden State Warriors a team to “keep an eye on” for Durant. Spears later took to Twitter to give more context to his report. Spears noted the Warriors “could” potentially offer the best package for both sides, with a deal involving Jordan Poole, Andrew Wiggins, Jonathan Kuminga and James Wiseman.
