Grizzlies adjusting to life without C Marc Gasol
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The Memphis Grizzlies were coming off an undefeated four-game West Coast road trip less than a week ago and life was good.
Then Marc Gasol limped off the court and everything changed for the Grizzlies.
Now the Grizzlies (7-7) have lost two straight at home, are a .500 team, and trying to find a productive rotation before falling too far behind in the loaded Western Conference.
The 7-foot-1 Gasol sprained the MCL in his left knee on Friday and is out indefinitely. He says he will rest 3-4 weeks before beginning a comeback attempt.
Memphis is missing his presence in the middle on both ends of the court. Gasol is the reigning NBA defensive player of the year and averaging 16 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game.
