Lakers News & Rumors Recap: Pau Gasol Progressing In Knee Rehab

Pau GAsolInjuries were a huge problem for the Lakers last season and absolutely crushed the team down the stretch and into the playoffs. Everyone is focusing on Kobe Bryant’s recovery from a torn Achilles, and rightfully so, but Pau Gasol will be a key component for the Lakers this season as he returns from knee surgery as well.

Gasol posted a video of his workout from rehab, and the Spaniard is looking good.

Working out isn’t the only thing Gasol will be doing this summer as the 2020 Madrid Olympic Committee announced that Pau will be a spokesman for the group when they make their final pitch to the IOC next month in Buenos Aires.

Kobe Bryant might not be posting videos of his workouts, but his shot is definitely still in working form as there was a video of The Mamba dropping 87 points in a ‘Pop-A-Shot’ arcade game.

Good to see that even when hurt, Kobe still finds time to put up jumpers.
