[NBA] Laker's Gasol probably finished with Lakers

Undergoing surgery on his damaged knees may end Gasol's career with Lakers.

Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol will undergo a procedure Thursday to address the tendonosis in both of his knees, the team announced Wednesday.

Gasol, who will turn 33 in July, missed more games in 2012-13 because of injury (33) than during any season in his 12-year career.

"It's more than tendinitis, it's tendonosis," Gasol said. "There's a degeneration of the tissue, and it's something that I've dealt with all year. So I'll have to do something to regenerate the tissue so I don't have to play with this pain."

Gasol has one year remaining on his Lakers contract worth $19.3 million.

He acknowledged at his exit interview last week that he could have played his last game as a Laker.

"The future is uncertain," Gasol said. "There's no doubt about it. It's a possibility that I could be gone, and there's a possibility that I could stay.

Gasol's teammate Kobe Bryant publicly lobbied for the team to bring Gasol back next season.

12 weeks expected before he can return to basketball stuff. Doubt they trade him before the deadline unless they can get an awesome deal .

He's obviously been a top player during his career--he is especially good at being a clutch rebounder.
