The Spanish Basketball Federation officially confirmed that Marc Gasol will not be able to help the country’s national team in the Olympic Games.
Despite lots of individual work by both the Memphis Grizzlies player and the national team’s medical staff, Gasol still needs more recovery time in order to fully rehabilitate from his right foot injury that has been plaguing him since February.
This develοpment doesn’t come as a surprise. During the previous days many Spanish media were reporting Gasol’s absence from Rio.
Furthermore, the player himself tweeted a motivational quote yesterday, one that was heavily implying that he has yet to recover from his injury.
