— Los Angeles Lakers forward/center Pau Gasol had an MRI test Wednesday in Boston on his right foot, which he injured in Tuesday night's game in Brooklyn. Results of the MRI showed that Gasol has a tear of the plantar fascia.

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. A further update including a time estimate for Gasol's return will be issued at the conclusion of the examination.
