Fortunately for the Lakers, Gasol isn't expected to miss any games. An MRI of his right ankle on Monday didn't show any significant damage.
MRI revealed a mild sprain, so good news. I will work in these next days in order to be ready to play for Friday's game in Sacramento.— Pau Gasol (@paugasol) December 3, 2013
The Lakers took Monday off, with three days of practice ahead before they visit the Kings on Friday.
Gasol will also make a talk show appearance on "The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson" on CBS, airing at 12:35 a.m. on Wednesday.
