NBA Injury Report Week 29: DeMarcus Cousins could return for the NBA Finals, Marcus Smart back in action and more
Pau Gasol - Left Ankle Injury - No Timetable
Since joining the team earlier this year, a left ankle injury has restricted Pau Gasol to just a handful of appearances for the Bucks. Gasol has missed the last two months with the injury, and the Journal Sentinel is reporting that the Bucks are unsure on whether the Spaniard will return this season:
He had to totally stop basketball activities and wear a walking boot for a few weeks, but Gasol is now back to doing limited on-court work. He expects to ramp things up in the next week, but isn’t sure exactly when he’ll be cleared for action.
Marcus Smart - Oblique Injury - Should Return This Week
A partially torn oblique has kept Marcus Smart out for the past month, although the 25-year-old is expected to return this week -- and he has been listed as questionable for the Celtics' Game 4 clash with the Bucks.
