Don't look for Gasol to give up basketball for acting, though. While currently sidelined with an injury, he looks to return to the court as soon as possible. It's just the kind of fun stunt casting that networks like to do from time to time to generate buzz for their veteran series.

Gasol's character will be someone the investigative team wants to talk to in relation to a terrible car accident. During the case, dark secrets are revealed about both drivers, but CBS is not spilling on whether or not Gasol was one of the drivers. We were hoping he'd be a victim so we could see what pun David Caruso would say over his dead body.

CAINE: "Surviving this crash would have been ... (dramatic pause to put on his sunglasses) ... a tall order."
