Pau Gasol To Miss About A Month With Ankle Injury

The injury news keeps getting worse for the Bucks, who will be without center Pau Gasol for roughly a month because of an injured left ankle, tweets ESPN’s Malika Andrews.

With the playoffs set to start in three weeks, Gasol should be considered questionable for the entire first round. The 38-year-old center has played just three games — and 10 total minutes — for Milwaukee after reaching a buyout agreement with the Spurs three weeks ago.

Gasol told Matt Velasquez of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel yesterday that the ankle had been bothering him, but he was getting it treated and was following the team’s recovery plan (Twitter link).

The news caps off a nightmarish week of injuries for the Bucks, who lost Malcolm Brogdon probably through at least the first round of the playoffs with a minor plantar fascia tear in his right foot and then saw Nikola Mirotic sidelined for 2-4 weeks with a fractured thumb.

    Yeesh. This one doesn’t hurt nearly as much as the other two, but at least the Bucks will be fully healthy in the likely event that they make it passed the first round.

  2. Reflect

    Every year the best threats to the Warriors seem to be set back by injuries right before/during the playoffs. I don’t think there is any sort of conspiracy or anything but it sure is annoying as a fan. Especially since the Warriors themselves have had a perfect bill of health almost every playoff year.
