Pau Gasol has made progress in his return from a torn plantar fascia in his right foot when he was cleared Tuesday to start working out.
Gasol got the green light to start using an elliptical machine from Dr. Steven Yoon after having an ultrasound on his foot.
Despite the news, Coach Mike D'Antoni said the team has not move up the timetable for Gasol's return. Gasol, who got off his crutches three after suffering the injury, is expected to be sidelined for another three weeks.
“I don’t think it’s moved up,” D”Antoni said, “but he’s doing well.”
The Lakers have gone 5-4 in Gasol’s absence.
