During last night’s much needed win over the Memphis Grizzlies, Pau Gasol left the game with a shoulder injury after a hard collision with his brother Marc Gasol. Although he returned to the game, he looked in considerable discomfort, finishing with only two points and seven rebounds.
Per ESPN, he told Tony Parker is it was pretty bad, and he does not expect to play against Golden State on Thursday:
“He hurt his shoulder, and he told me it was bad,” Parker said. “We will see, but I’m pretty sure he’s not going to play against Golden State.”
In other injury related news, Rudy Gay reportedly ruptured his left eardrum during last night’s game but also returned in the second half. Both players are expected to be re-evaluated at some point today. We’ll keep you updated on their status here.
Update: Gay has been listed as day-to-day and is not expected to miss the Warriors game.
