Grizzlies Marc Gasol aggravates knee, doesn't return to game

The Grizzlies are holding their breath a bit as Marc Gasol left Wednesday's game early with a knee injury and didn't return. 

Gasol, who missed the first two months with a sprained MCL, appeared to aggravate it in the third quarter against the Magic

On the play, Gasol banged his knee setting a screen and immediately exited the game, limping off the floor.

The Grizzlies, who struggled without Gasol, went 13-3 in January since he returned to the lineup. They've steadied out a bit lately, but obviously losing him for an extended time would be catastrophic. 

Th Grizzlies went on to win, 86-81, improving to 29-23.
