Pau Gasol injures foot, heard "pop", will have MRI in Boston

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Pau Gasol hurt his foot in the fourth quarter going up to block Brook Lopez. Gasol will have an MRI in Boston Wednesday morning and left the arena on crutches and a walking boot.

The Los Angeles won a game of basketball against the Brooklyn Nets, but in the process may have lost in the long term. In the fourth quarter Pau Gasol went up to block Brook Lopez and then fell to the ground as he landed. There he was, crumpled on the ground like a wet crumpled newspaper.

If you haven't seen what happened, here's the video (a tip of the hat to @jose3030)

Gasol attempted to play on through the injury, but at the next dead ball immediately headed back to the locker room. The immediate response from the Lakers beat writers was that Pau Gasol had strained his plantar fascia in his right foot, but it appears to be more severe than a "strain" and he will receive an MRI Wednesday morning in Boston. Here's a roundup of all the information and tweets floating around regarding Pau Gasol's injury.
