CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Bulls forward Pau Gasol plans to play in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The five-time All-Star has missed the past two games because of a strained left hamstring. But with Chicago down 3-2 and facing elimination at home on Thursday, Gasol says “I’ll be out there.”

He says he’s not sure “what percentage I’ll be able to play.”

The Bulls went through a film session on Wednesday. Gasol did some running and was seen taking free throws and jumpers.

He has been receiving treatment and exercising his leg, which started to bother him in Game 2. He left Game 3 after playing about 22 minutes.
