Kobe Bryant Expresses Concern Over Pau Gasol’s Injury

The Los Angeles Lakers just can’t seem to escape the injury bug this season.

Prior to the Lakers’ game on Tuesday night, the team was without Jordan Hill and Dwight Howard, leaving the front court extremely depleted. To make matters worse, the Lakers lost Pau Gasol in their game against the Nets and the injury seemed very serious. Gasol’s right foot is the area of concern, and the seven-foot forward will have an MRI on Wednesday.

After the game, Kobe Bryant spoke to the media and Dave McMenamin tweeted Bryant’s reaction to Gasol’s injury.

The Lakers will likely be without Gasol for at least a few games, a severe blow to an already banged up team. Gasol has played well in the past couple of matches and the Lakers will surely miss his presence if he ends up being sidelined.

Without Gasol, the pressure will be on Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash to carry the load and they will have to face some very tough teams without a couple of their stars.

Los Angeles will be back in action on Thursday against the Boston Celtics.
