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.

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.

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.
Apr 12 - 1:44 AM

Marc Gasol controlled the paint against the Nuggets during Friday's 100-92 win, scoring a season-high 24 points with five boards, three assists and one block in 36 minutes.

The Nuggets have been an easy matchup for a lot of front courts and Zach Randolph also had a big night with 20 points. Gasol is shooting the ball about 2.0 percent better after the break compared to before that point, so he's getting at the right time.
Apr 4 - 10:36 PM

Marc Gasol played through an ankle injury on Saturday and had 10 points, nine rebounds, a steal and two blocks on 4-of-11 shooting.

He was a game-time decision coming in and while he didn't set any records, he nearly double-doubled and looked dominant against Roy Hibbert. The Grizzlies play Minnesota on Monday and while it appears that Gasol should be ready to go for that one, owners will want to keep an eye out for more news on his ankle.
Mar 22 - 10:44 PM

Marc Gasol is in the starting lineup against the Pacers on Saturday.

His Grade I sprain seems like it'll be a minor issue and we'll let you know how he looks. Prior to this season, Gasol had been very durable, but he's run into some bad luck this season.
Mar 22 - 8:07 PM

Marc Gasol had a Grade I left ankle sprain and is a game-time call for Saturday's game vs. the Pacers.

He left the arena in a walking boot on Friday and it would appear that was more of a precautionary measure more than anything else. If Gasol can't play, the Grizzlies figure to give more run to Kosta Koufos. We'll pass along any info on his status as the info becomes available.
Mar 22 - 6:25 PM

Marc Gasol left the arena in a walking boot after leaving Friday's game against the Heat due to a sprained left ankle.

It's unclear how precautionary that boot is but it's certainly not 'good news' for now. We'll keep you updated as the news comes in, and there isn't really a huge speculative add following this news. Courtney Lee (12 points, two threes, three steals) might get a few extra touches and secure late-round value, but any add there assumes that Gasol misses more than a few games. Kosta Koufos has not been impressive in fill-in duty in the past.
Mar 21 - 10:50 PM

Marc Gasol was originally going to return to Friday's game after spraining his left ankle, but later he and the Grizzlies decided that he would call it an early night.

Gasol's injury didn't appear to be serious but leaving a tight game they need to win speaks louder than what we saw on the court. Kosta Koufos hasn't done much in fill-in duty but he would be worth keeping an eye on for those truly desperate for a big man, and a borderline player like Courtney Lee might get a boost if the injury is serious.
Mar 21 - 9:48 PM

Marc Gasol tweaked his ankle in Friday's game against the Heat but returned in the third quarter.

So far this seems like a minor injury and if that changes we'll let you know.
