Lakers say Pau Gasol diagnosed with tear of plantar fascia on right foot

Pau Gasol has been diagnosed with a tear of the plantar fascia of his right foot a day after he said he felt a pop in the foot during the Lakers' victory over the Nets.

The Lakers said Wednesday that an MRI revealed the injury.

The team said the results will be sent to team doctors in Los Angeles for analysis and that Gasol will return Thursday to be examined by team physician Dr. Steve Lombardo and foot specialist Dr. Kenneth Jung.

The Lakers say they will give a timeline for Gasol's return after the examination.
