NBA-Grizzlies top scorer Gasol out for season after surgery

Feb 23 (The Sports Xchange) - The Memphis Grizzlies will be without leading scorer Marc Gasol for the rest of the National Basketball Association season after the Spaniard had surgery to repair a fracture in his right foot, the team said on Tuesday.

Gasol, a two-time Olympic medallist, underwent successful surgery on Saturday to repair a midfoot fracture and is expected to make a full recovery, the Grizzlies said in a statement.

"Marc remains a cornerstone of our franchise and we are pleased to hear that the surgery went according to plan," Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace said.
