Marc Gasol hit 6-of-10 shots for 16 points, nine rebounds and two blocks on Wednesday.
He's had a nice preseason and is ready to go. Andre Drummond, DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard get most of the hype as fantasy centers, but Gasol might be the most efficient player of the group. Oct 22 - 11:05 PM

Marc Gasol scored 17 points on 11 field goal attempts to go with seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and no turnovers.

He was 5-of-5 from the line and this is the type of line that defines him as a fantasy asset. He doesn't hurt owners anywhere, brings defense and takes good care of the ball. He was a first-round guy a couple seasons ago, but his MCL tear hurt him last year. He's a nice value in the third round for nine-cat leagues.
Oct 20 - 11:34 PM

Marc Gasol had 21 points, 13 rebounds, a steal and three blocks in 29 minutes in Saturday's win over the Hawks.

He hit 8-of-14 shots, and while it was an impressive performance, let's remember the Hawks are going to give up big numbers to most opposing centers this year. Especially as long as Al Horford is out. But Gasol is having a great preseason, looks fully healthy, and should be one of the first centers off the board come draft night.
Oct 11 - 11:13 PM

Marc Gasol played 15 minutes and had seven points, seven rebounds, a steal and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Bucks.

Gasol has had a great training camp and was solid in his limited minutes tonight. He's a quality No. 1 center in all fantasy formats.
Oct 9 - 12:43 AM

Marc Gasol looks great in training camp, and play-by-play man Pete Pranica tweets that he is already in All-Star form.

Pranica may be biased, but he's also watched Gasol in person early in camp. Gasol missed 23 games last season, but he's been durable throughout his career. And given how he looks this early in the game, his draft stock should be on the rise.
Oct 1 - 11:45 PM

The Grizzlies are encouraging Marc Gasol to look for his own shot more often this season.

Gasol is a phenomenal passer for a center, but Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger wants him to be much more aggressive. "He’s got to score the ball. That’s all there is to it," Joerger said. "It doesn’t make you a selfish player. It just means people can’t guard you." Gasol missed 23 games last year after spraining his MCL, but the injury is behind him and he's been very durable throughout his career. He has top-20 upside but his current ADP of 44.0 suggests he's reliably undervalued in fantasy drafts.
Oct 1 - 1:35 PM

Marc Gasol said he's not sweating the fact that he's due to become an unrestricted free agent after the season.

"I think we’ve got to take it day by day," Gasol said. "You know how much I love this team and this hasn’t changed, so we’ll see how we feel at the end of the year and we’ll go from there."After being selected in the first-round of most fantasy drafts last year, the 29-year-old only played 59 games due to a knee injury. If his injury-plagued 2013-14 season scares a few fantasy owners away from Gasol, he'll end up being an early-round steal on draft day.
Sep 30 - 10:34 AM

Marc Gasol went 1-of-7 from the field in Spain's 65-52 loss to France in the FIBA.

Gasol's final stat line for the loss was three points, four rebounds, and one block. He struggled to score, being frustrated by French center Rudy Gobert. He was the team's high-scorer in their game against France on September 3rd, but could not repeat the performance. Gasol had a down 2013-2014 after battling injuries but is he prime bounce-back candidate.
Sep 10 - 6:13 PM

Marc Gasol scored a team-high 17 points vs. France during Wednesday's 88-64 win to go with six boards, two assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

It's been his big brother Pau doing most of the heavy lifting, but Marc got in on the action today. The FIBA tournament seems destined for a USA vs. Spain final with both teams on cruise control so far. Marc Gasol had a down year in 2013-14, so he could be a nice value pick in the late-early rounds of drafts.
Sep 3 - 5:54 PM

Marc Gasol said he wants to stay in Memphis after his contract runs out in the summer of 2015.

"I’ve always said Memphis is my home away from home," Gasol said. "Robert [Pera] knows that. I know that. My teammates know that and that’s all that matters. I live day to day but I don’t see myself anywhere else." After missing just four games in the previous three seasons combined, Gasol missed 23 in 2013-14. He should have a bounce back year in his age-29 season as one of the best fantasy centers in the league.
Jun 18 - 3:31 PM

Marc Gasol has begun working out without a brace on his right knee for the first time since spraining his MCL in November.

"I don’t have to wear a brace anymore," Gasol said. "It’s like the knee injury never happened. It’s really strong and stable." Gasol will play for Spain when they host this summer's FIBA World Cup, and any lingering questions about his health should be answered before the Grizzlies begin training camp in September.
Jun 17 - 6:09 PM

Marc Gasol scored 24 points in Game 7's 120-109 loss to the Thunder with two boards, six assists, four steals and one block.

The Grizzlies scoring 109 points tonight was unexpected, and it was a surprise to see them even hang around with the way OKC was knocking down shots. Gasol's 16.6 shots per game in the postseason were well above his regular-season average of 12.1 per game, which led to an average line of 17.3 points, 7.7 boards, 4.4 assists and 1.7 steals in the seven games. After an underwhelming start to his season due primarily to his MCL sprain, Gasol finished the year strong. He'll be an elite option next season at the center spot in fantasy leagues.
May 3 - 11:03 PM

Marc Gasol scored a team-high 17 points during Thursday's 104-84 loss to the Thunder with five boards, four assists and one steal in 33 minutes.

He and Zach Randolph scored 33 of the starting unit's 42 points tonight, which was a big reason why they were destroyed on their own home floor. The Grizzlies tried to slow things down again, but it didn't work and they'll have to head to Oklahoma City for Game 7 on Saturday.
May 1 - 11:19 PM

Marc Gasol had 23 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks in Saturday's tough overtime loss to the Thunder.

Gasol was great, while Mike Conley hit just 5-of-16 shots, but still finished with 14 points, 10 assists, four steals and a block. He was also 0-for-6 from downtown. Tony Allen played great defense on both Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, who combined to hit just 11-of-45 shots for 30 points, while chipping in with 14 points, 13 rebounds, a steal and a block off the bench. The series is tied 2-2 and heads back to OKC for Game 5 on Tuesday. The Grizzlies had won 15 straight games at home before tonight's loss.
Apr 27 - 1:14 AM

Marc Gasol scored 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting (including a three) with 10 rebounds and two blocks as the Grizzlies rolled over the Sixers by the score of 117-95 on Friday.

While Gasol feasted the box wasn't so kind to Mike Conley (two points, eight assists, 23 minutes), who wasn't needed in the lopsided win. Zach Randolph turned in 10 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks.
