Gasol Receives PRP Injection


Pau Gasol, who was diagnosed with a strained right groin on Saturday, received a PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injection on Monday to stimulate healing.

Gasol acknowledged on Thursday post practice that he started feeling pain in the affected area during the Grammy road trip. He labored through the Charlotte game at home on Friday, and came out of halftime late, but still managed to play 33 minutes.

The 7-foot Spaniard finished January with averages of 20.8 points, 11.9 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.7 blocks on 51.0 percent field goals and ended the month with 10 consecutive games of at least 20 points.
