The SportsXchange

Los Angeles Laker forward Pau Gasol is expected to be back with the team on Monday, although there are hints he could return Friday.

Gasol has been recovering from a foot injury, and coach Mike D'Antoni said he expects Gasol to be ready to return Monday, according to the Orange County Register.

When asked Friday morning by Dave McMenamin of whether he would play Sunday or Monday, McMenamin tweeted that Gasol shrugged and said, "Or Friday."

Gasol is averaging 13.4 points and 5.9 rebounds in 36 games this season.
