03:36 PM ET 05.09 | Pau Gasol will undergo surgery on both of his knees in hopes of curing chronic tendinitis in his knees, procedures that shouldn't cost him playing time.

Gasol missed a career-high 33 games this past season for the Lakers, many of which were unrelated to his balky knees. But he's tired of playing through the pain, and will undergo the "minimally invasive surgery" which should keep him from participating in any sort of on-court activity for six weeks.

Gasol's nearly $20 million contract expires after the 2014 season, meaning the team might look to trade him or amnesty him in hopes of cap relief.

Maybe he should go to Germany to get that procedure done, too.

At his age and declining skill level, Pau will no longer dominant player.

Hopefully this helps Pau have a resurgence this season. He's still got some good ball left in him.

Wheel Chair Basketball for sure.
