Memphis Grizzlies star Marc Gasol insists that he will return from his injury quickly.

Memphis Grizzlies star Marc Gasol has promised that he will do everything to return to the court as quickly as possible.

The NBA's reigning defensive player of the year suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament during the loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night.

"They try to give me a week, three, four, six," Gasol said, according to ESPN.

"I don't care what number they say, I told them as soon as I can put my foot down on the floor and I can walk, I'm going to rush it and speed the process."

Gasol is expected to be on crutches for three to four weeks before he can begin his rehabilitation work.
