Grizzlies Gasol More Injured than first Thought

The Memphis Grizzlies take a blow to their NBA Playoff hopes with News Center Marc Gasol has a mild tear in a muscle on the left side of his collarbone.

He could miss the rest of the weekend, but is NOT expected to miss the rest of the season.

Gasol has missed the last 2 games with what team Doctors called a strained neck.

Rookie Hasheem Thabeet started those games and is putting up decent numbers.

He had 8-points, a career high 10 rebounds and 3-blocks last night in a loss at Houston.

The Grizzlies host Sacramento Saturday at FedExForum.
