Most NBA fans feared the worst as soon as we heard Los Angeles Lakers forward/center Pau Gasol say he "felt a pop" in the plantar fascia of his right foot during the fourth quarter of L.A.'s 92-83 road win over the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday, and a Wednesday MRI confirmed the concerns the 32-year-old Spaniard suffered a partial tear of his right plantar fascia and will be sidelined for the foreseeable future. "I tweaked my fascia in the first half, so I was dealing with quite a bit of soreness in the second half," Gasol said after the game. "I was dealing with it, but that play when I tried to jump off of it and try go block the shot , just as I took off, I felt a pop in the bottom of my foot on my fascia and I couldn't get up. I'm worried about it." In case you missed it, here's the play on which Gasol suffered the tear while attempting to block a shot by Nets center Brook Lopez: Gasol was injured in Tuesday night's win over the Brooklyn Nets. The MRI test will be sent to team doctors in Los Angeles for analysis and Gasol will fly to Los Angeles tomorrow, where he will be examined by team doctor Steve Lombardo and foot specialist Dr. Kenneth Jung.
