Pau Gasol participated in his first team practice with Barcelona Wednesday (17/3). It was the first time the Spanish great had a full training session with the rest of his teammates, including full- contact practice and five vs. five play.
So far there’s no date set for Gasol’s game debut with Barcelona. The 40-year-old center hasn’t played a match since March 2019 when he was a member of the Milwaukee Bucks. He underwent surgery on his left foot in May 2019 and has been trying to step on the court ever since.
Gasol signed with Barcelona in February to make his return to the Blaugrana and European basketball for the first time after 21 years.
