Gasol slowed by tendinitis in both knees

DALLAS – Pau Gasol said after the Lakers' victory Saturday night that he has tendinitis in both knees that has been "pretty bothersome."

Gasol has been wearing bands over both knees during games for a while in an attempt to control the swelling and pain. He said: "It's something that has been lingering. So far, I'm dealing with it."

Knee pain certainly is an issue for Gasol in meeting the lofty demands of Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni to run the floor and bring energy, although Gasol managed to do exactly those things in the victory in Dallas.

Gasol is coming off minimal offseason rest as the anchor of the Spanish national team that won the silver medal in the London Olympics. He said the knees didn't bother him then, but they are now.

Kobe Bryant noted after the loss in Sacramento on Wednesday that Gasol looked slow, and he had another poor game Friday in Memphis.

Stu has been pointing out all year that Gasol isn't bending at the knees as much as he used to. Resulting in less elevation.

Hopefully Metta and Nash get him on their diet. As you get older if you keep eating stuff that leads to total body inflamation while also being a pro athlete you're knees are the first joints to suffer.

Pau is always posting pictures of himself eating Paella. Rice is probably leading to alot of that inflammation.

I imagine his euro ass is probably eating a lot of pasta too. Open his eyes Steve and Metta!
