EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol will get ultrasonic treatment on both knees in an attempt to regenerate his tendons.
The Lakers announced Gasol's plan Wednesday.
The team says Gasol will undergo a procedure Thursday that's intended to improve the health of his patellar tendons by removing scar tissue with ultrasonic energy. The procedure will be performed by Dr. Steven Yoon of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Group.
After the Lakers' season ended last month, the 7-foot Spaniard said both of his knees had developed tendinosis - a degeneration of tissue.
Gasol missed 33 games due to injury last season, struggling with a concussion, plantar fasciitis and additional ailments, including his chronically sore knees.
Gasol turns 33 in July. He has one year left on his deal with the Lakers.
