Marc Gasol's Recovery Is Going Better Than Expected

marc_gasol_2013The sooner the better for Memphis.

The trend right now among NBA teams is to say a guy is out indefinitely with an injury and not give a timetable. (Unless youre the Knicks, then every injury is day-to-day, even when its not.) You can thank Derrick Rose for that, nobody wants to give the impression a key player will be back sooner than he will be ready.

The other way to get around that is to give an extended timetable then have said player beat it. Which brings us to the Memphis Grizzlies.

Marc Gasol was reportedly going to be out 6-10 weeks with a sprained MCL, but the Associated Press said in a recent story it is really expected to be 3-4 weeks.
