Gasol might return Sunday against Washington

This is great news. Hopefully he’ll be ready to go. In the practice video over on Lakers.com from this morning, he looked great doing his light drills! We need Pau back (also, how many of you like me are growing the beards awaiting for his return):

L.A. Times: Center Pau Gasol might return Sunday against Washington after a pain-free day with his sprained left ankle the Los Angeles Times reported.

He did some one-on-one drills Thursday with Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Kurt Rambis at the team’s training facility. Some post moves still bothered him when he made quick turns, but he felt “pretty good,” he said. “I’ll just wait until probably Saturday to go through a full practice, see how it feels.”

    Laker coaches:

    Last week: “Eh, we’re winning games, we don’t need Pau right now, give em more rest”

    Today: “Man we’re losing games now, let’s activate em.”

    LD2K, my English teacher once taught me the use of the word “awaiting” vs. “waiting”
    for the purposes of making grammatical sense, please remove the word “for” or delete the “a” in “awaiting”
    :-D btw, no need to thank me
