In an interview with Spanish newspaper L'Esportiu, Grizzlies center Marc Gasol talked about his injury, the Team USA-Spain game and more.
On his foot injury:
"I'm really well and looking forward to starting (the season). I miss the competition, playing and enjoying basketball. All indications are that the foot is fine. I've practiced with the (Girona basketball club) juniors all I could, especially half-court sets."
On almost making it to the Olympic Games:
"I was a couple of weeks away."
On Spain's bronze at the Olympics.
"A deserved medal. They suffered. They felt they could have beaten the U.S. It was not a splendid game. I don't know how big of a shot they had, but it's true that you could see they could have beaten them."
