— Grizzlies center Marc Gasol is out indefinitely with a broken bone in his right foot after an MRI exam found the fracture earlier Tuesday.

The Grizzlies said in a statement that Gasol was examined by team physicians Tuesday morning. Memphis will update Gasol's status after the All-Star break.

The 7-foot-1 Gasol is averaging 16.6 points and 7.0 rebounds in 52 games this season. He left Monday night's overtime loss to Portland in the first quarter after scoring 11 points and did not return. Coach Dave Joerger said after the game that Gasol had a problem with each leg.

Gasol signed a five-year contract last July after earning a starting spot in the All-Star game last season and also became the first Grizzlies player voted to the All-NBA first team.
