12:37 AM ET 03.18 | Injured Lakers power forward Pau Gasol is still unsure when he will make his return to the court, as he has been feeling some extra pain in his right foot after ramping up the intensity in his rehab. However, Gasol said that the additional pain is not a setback, explaining what foot specialist Dr. Kenneth Jung told him during a recent visit. "He said it's to be expected as you raise the intensity, the amount you're putting on the foot is going to create a little soreness," said Gasol. "It's a pretty normal reaction from the injury that I had." Gasol tore the plantar fascia in his right foot on Feb. 5. The Lakers estimated that it would take Gasol six-to-eight weeks to return to the court, and he's currently at about six weeks. If Gasol does not play on Monday against the Suns, his next chance to return would be Friday against the Wizards.

Yeah, pretty easy to say when you've never had Plantar Fasciitis......

That's true.

But I've never really been a pro-athlete either or have had a $80 + M contract.

I do get corpal tunnels and migraines as a pro in my field, and brave through them :-)
