Marc Gasol hit a 3-pointer off the glass at the buzzer to send Wednesday's game to overtime, finishing with 26 points, nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 46 minutes.

The Grizzlies pulled out a huge 117-116 win in triple overtime and are suddenly the hottest team in the NBA after back-to-back wins against the Warriors and the defending champs. As for Gasol, his knee injury is behind him as he makes a case for MVP. He's flirting with first-round value in standard leagues.
Dec 18 - 1:38 AM

Marc Gasol hit 11-of-21 shots for 24 points, seven rebounds, three assists and a block in Tuesday's impressive 105-98 win over the streaking Warriors.

Gasol is a legit MVP candidate this season for the 20-4 Grizzlies, and is averaging 19.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.1 steals, 1.7 blocks, and is shooting 50 percent from the floor and 84 percent from the line. He might have had a tougher time tonight had Andrew Bogut been playing (and at 100 percent), but the Grizzlies caught a small break by not having to face GSW's defensive anchor.
Dec 16 - 11:40 PM

Marc Gasol blocked a season-high six shots against the Hornets on Friday with 19 points, three rebounds, five assists and two steals in 37 minutes.

He held Al Jefferson to just 7-of-21 from the field and blocked him three times tonight. Gasol dropped 30 points on Tuesday night in his last game and that knee concern from last week has been put to bed. He's an elite fantasy big man and is going to get paid this summer.
Dec 13 - 1:38 AM

Marc Gasol appeared to aggravate the bone bruise in his right knee during Tuesday's game, but he continued playing to finish with a game-high 30 points on 9-of-14 FGs and 12-of-13 FTs.

Gasol's knee is a concern for fantasy owners, but he was incredible tonight and he'll get a few days off before the Grizzlies' next game vs. the Hornets on Friday. He chipped in five rebounds, six assists, one steal and only one turnover in 37 minutes in Tuesday's home win, as he continues to produce at a top-10 level for his lucky fantasy owners.
Dec 9 - 10:34 PM

Marc Gasol appeared to bang his knee in the 1st quarter of Tuesday's game, but he is staying in the game.

He was clearly limping but it is good to see that it won't be serious enough to keep him out of action. Marc Gasol was recently diagnosed with a knee bruise, so this is definitely something we will watch very closely. Stay tuned.
Dec 9 - 8:33 PM

Marc Gasol had a lousy night offensively vs. the Heat, scoring two points on 1-of-6 shooting, but he added six rebounds, seven assists and one block to salvage his fantasy line.

This was a fluky performance from Gasol, especially since Miami's frontcourt is one of the most lenient in the NBA against opposing centers. Gasol has been dominant all season and should bounce back quickly vs. Tyson Chandler and the Mavericks on Tuesday.
Dec 7 - 8:37 PM

Marc Gasol did not miss any time due to a minor bone bruise and went off for 28 and 12 on Friday, hitting 9-of-20 shots (10-of-11 FTs) with two assists and four blocks in the Grizzlies' 107-101 loss to the Spurs.

That pretty much shuts the book on this minor ailment and owners can go back to enjoying their first round asset without trepidation.
Dec 6 - 2:13 AM

Marc Gasol (right knee bone bruise) said that he will play Friday vs. the Spurs.

Gasol said that he is fine, and didn't understand why such a big deal was made over a bone bruise to his right knee. He's one of the best centers in the league, so go ahead and get him active. Owners who made a speculative add of Kosta Koufos or Jon Leuer can go ahead and cut them.
Dec 5 - 12:01 PM

Marc Gasol is dealing with a right knee bone bruise, and the Grizzlies are listing him as questionable for Friday's game vs. San Antonio.

Gasol is simply dealing with a bone bruise, so it looks like owners have dodged a bullet here. If he is unable to go on Friday, Kosta Koufos and Jon Leuer will see some extended minutes, with Koufos offering the most upside. Stay tuned.
Dec 4 - 2:50 PM

Marc Gasol (right knee) underwent an MRI on Thursday, but was seen walking into the Grizzlies' facility wearing his practice gear.

Gasol was unavailable to the media on Thursday, so we'll have to await word on what's going on with the same knee on which he suffered an MCL tear last season. With the Grizzlies hosting the Spurs on Friday, Kosta Koufos is worth a speculative add as he and Jon Leuer would see extra minutes if Gasol is out for any length of time.
Dec 4 - 1:58 PM

Marc Gasol said on Wednesday that he dealing with some right knee discomfort.

"I don't know what it is," Gasol said. "I'm not an MRI machine and we don't have one here. We'll find out tomorrow." This is not good at all after Gasol missed two months last season with his MCL tear in his right knee. If he needs to miss time, Kosta Koufos and Jon Leuer would likely pick up some extra minutes. Koufos is a speculative add in deeper leagues. Gasol had a disappointing line on Saturday with eight points, seven rebounds, three assists and one block.
Dec 3 - 11:12 PM

Marc Gasol pointed to his improved diet and weight loss for an explanation in his improvement this season.

Gasol spent time cutting refined sugar, soda and processed foods. He also cut back on carbs and red meat, eating mostly a semi-vegetarian diet. Gasol wouldn't put a number on how much weight he's lost, but the noticeable slimming down has made an impression on just about everyone. Gasol is averaging an impressive 20.1 points, 8.1 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.5 blocks on 50.8 percent shooting.
Dec 1 - 10:02 AM

Marc Gasol dominated the fourth quarter vs. the Kings on Sunday, finishing with 18 points while chipping in six rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block.

Gasol had four fouls through three quarters, which was a limiting factor, and the fact that this was a relatively 'quiet' game speaks volumes about his play this season. He's launched himself into first-round fantasy value and helps owners in every category beyond 3-pointers, as he continues to blow away his preseason ADP.
Nov 30 - 8:45 PM

Marc Gasol torched the Blazers in Portland on Friday, scoring 26 points on 9-of-15 shooting with seven rebounds, nine assists and one block.

Gasol has slimmed down and he is crushing the opposition with top-10 value on the season. He might be shooting over his head a little bit now that he's taking a career-high 14.1 shots per game, and the only time he has hit his current free throw rate (84.1 percent) was in 2012-13 (84.8%). His best season other than that was a 76.8 percent campaign last year. Regardless, he's going to be fun to own.
