A mind game from coach Sergio Scariolo or a real possibility? Still, Scariolo didn’t hesitate to say the almost unthinkable before the semifinal in Rio against USA, that Pau Gasol may miss the game.

It’s true that Gasol was hurting in the game against France and has a calf injury and that’s why Scariolo when asked for his condition speaking to the Spanish media, he replied: “He is not well, I can not say for sure that he is going to play. We continue with his treatments and the truth is that we needed him right now. We hope his condition to evolve well and at least be ready to help as much as he can his teammates in the game. I can not say anything more right now”.

In any case it seems highly unlikely that Gasol will miss a historic match up, unless there’s a real big health issue preventing him to be on the court.
