Pau Gasol’s eagerly anticipated return is less than 24 hours away, FC Barcelona head coach Sarunas Jasikevicius confirmed Thursday.
“Pau is fine. He has been improving in practice. He is comfortable here,” noted the Lithuanian boss, and back in his playing days a teammate of Gasol, “We are considering giving him a few minutes but we do not know exactly how many minutes and in what way.”
The projection concerns the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season Round 34 meeting with FC Bayern Munich. The home game is scheduled to be held tomorrow, Friday.
Gasol, 40, has been working towards his first Barca appearance in twenty years these past weeks since opting to sign with the Spanish powerhouse. He was considered day-to-day in terms of finally getting back in action.
Barcelona has secured first place in the EuroLeague standings all set to enter the playoffs.
