Pau Gasol is in a walking boot and there's currently no timetable for his return.
Gregg Popovich said "he'll be out as long as he's out," which doesn't really help us at all. Instead we'll take a quote from DeMar DeRozan, who compared the boot to the one you get for not paying parking tickets a la Homer Simpson in New York: "He’s all right, just old. Precautionary reasons. It’s kind of like a boot when you get a ticket on the side of the road, & you got to pay the ticket. He didn’t pay his ticket." Gasol isn't someone you have to hold in 12-team leagues and the current run of frontcourt injuries should lead to more Davis Bertans minutes.
