Pau Gasol: 'I have a better rhythm'

Los Angeles Lakers power forward Pau Gasol says that he has better rhythm now that the team's training camp has begun.

Pau Gasol has said that he has a "better rhythm" since the start of the Los Angeles Lakers' training camp.

The power forward underwent a knee procedure in May to relieve tendinitis in both joints.

The 33-year-old told the team's website: "I feel better, getting better, getting a better rhythm and better touch. My legs are feeling better. So far, so good, five days into camp and [I feel] positive.

"I thought I would be a little more limited. I basically started running on the court three weeks ago. Up until this point, I hadn't done any basketball stuff with other players or with contact. So far, it's been good. The doctors are really encouraged that everything looks good.

"For sure, for sure, I'm rusty. I still have to get a good feel for the ball and for the game. But everyday, I pick it up and improve, so I'm very excited about my progression."

Gasol has a career average of 18.4 points per game.
