Lakers News: Pau Gasol Moving Knee Rehab To Running On Grass

On May 9, Pau Gasol underwent a procedure on both of his knees to help alleviate the tendonitis and tendonosis that he suffered through all of last season.

In recent weeks, Gasol has spent his time recovering from the procedure in the weight room, on exercise bikes and in swimming pools. However, Gasol tweeted yesterday that his rehab has shifted to running on grass.

Running on grass is a bit easier on the knees than running on hardwood or concrete. The increased activity is a good sign that Gasol could be full strength by the start of the season.

Gasol isn’t the only Laker who is recovering from ailments from last season. Jodie Meeks is recovering from torn ligaments in his ankle, Steve Nash is recovering from hamstring and back issues and, of course, Kobe Bryant is recovering from a ruptured Achilles. There are also questions about Jordan Hill’s hip and rookie Ryan Kelly’s broken foot.

Gasol missed 33 games last season with injuries that included his knees, plantar fascia and a concussion.
