Pau practices

Pau Gasol practiced for the first time since spraining his left ankle March 14. He wasn’t sure if he would play Sunday against the Wizards of Washington.
His post-practice comments:
“Well, I went out there and I tried to move around and go up and down and just try to do some basketball moves. Some felt good and some didn’t feel that good. … It was a first step. I’m still pretty sore. I don’t know. I’m still doubtful (for the Washington game).”
Of his conidtioning, or lack thereof, he said:
“It’s been better.”
Of sitting out for eight games, including Friday’s defeat against Memphis, his old team, he said:
“It hurt (to watch) against Charlotte. It hurt even more against Memphis. Just because it’s two games we definitely should have won. We’ve got to take care of our home court no matter what, but especially against teams we should beat.”
