Initially, it looked like Pau Gasol broke his nose in a game against the Denver Nuggets. Luckily for Pau Gasol and the Los Angeles Lakers, his nose isn’t broken. Unfortunately, the play did cause his to suffer a concussion.
Due to the concussion, Pau Gasol will miss at least two games. The soonest he can play is when the Lakers return from their two-game road trip — which takes them to the Houston Rockets and the San Antonio Spurs.
According to numerous reports, Gasol should be able to play after missing those two games. He’ll have to pass a concussion test but since his concussion is considered minor, that shouldn’t be a problem.
In fantasy basketball, Pau Gasol is a great buy low right now. If Dwight Howard injured and possibly out for the season, Gasol would step into a much bigger role. And since he’ll be back soon, there isn’t much to worry about on that front.
