Pau Gasol has been recovering from an ankle surgery and wants to be 100% ready, before his return to action.

Here is what the center of the Portland Trail Blazers told reporters, per The Oregonian:

“Body’s doing great, now it’s just the ankle getting used to the pushing off and the pushing and holding people and the more explosive moves.

Obviously I’m super excited to play but I also want to be realistic and not create false expectations on myself, just follow the process and make sure I do everything correctly.”
