06:11 PM ET 03.27 | An abdominal tear won't shut Memphis Grizzlies big man Marc Gasol down for the regular season. At least, the injury won't end the center's season if he has a final say. After aggravating the injury that originally occurred on March 6, Gasol will miss his third game in a row on Wednesday as the Grizzlies face the New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden. Even though Gasol said he was playing at 60 to 65 percent before last Friday's re-injury of the abdominal muscle, he continued to play through pain and despite the tear limiting his mobility and explosiveness. Gasol thinks he'll return before the playoffs. "We're going to try to keep (treating it) and when it feels good and gets better, I'll get out there. I don't care if it hurts a little bit. I have no problem with that. We're going with indefinite. But it's going to go game-by-game, day-by-day."
