LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol has been sidelined indefinitely after sustaining a tear in his right foot, his team said on Wednesday.

Gasol was injured during the Lakers' victory over Brooklyn on Tuesday and received scans which confirmed an injury serious enough to keep him off court for a while.

Los Angeles has not given a specific timetable on his return and the 2.13m-tall Spaniard will meet with team doctors on Thursday to sketch out a plan for his recuperation.

"I'm hoping to recover ASAP so I can be back with the team and keep fighting until the end of the season," Gasol tweeted on Wednesday.
