Pau Gasol confirms that he will miss the beginning of the pre-season training camp as his recovery from knee problems continue.

Pau Gasol has revealed that he will miss the beginning of the pre-season training camp with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The 33-year-old underwent procedures on both knees during the summer but claims that he can still be fit for the start of the new campaign.

"We're going to get into practices and get a feel of how the knees react and get into training slowly," Gasol told reporters.

"I haven't done really a lot of basketball stuff. I haven't done a lot of contact yet. So we'll see how it feels.

"But the goal is to be ready for opening night, and whichever way it takes to get there, that's what we're going to do."

Gasol played only 49 times during the previous regular season due to a number of different injuries.
