Marc Gasol (groin) scored a season-high 36 points during an 88-86 win over the Blazers on Thursday, adding nine rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.
What right groin injury? He popped up on the injury report today, but looked totally fine. The Grizzlies are on a five-game winning streak and Gasol is the heavy favorite for Western Conference Player of the Week. In his three wins so far, Gasol has averaged 30.0 points, 10.7 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.3 blocks and 2.3 treys on 50 percent from the field. Big Spain has been a top-five player for standard leagues over his last 10 and is making a great case for the All-Star team. Dec 9 - 12:31 AM

Marc Gasol (groin) will start against the Blazers on Thursday night.

He gets an outstanding matchup tonight against a sub-par Blazers interior defense and rebounding. Gasol may have a slight hit in minutes, so he's a risky DFS play even when it's not on a back-to-back set. He's an obvious start in season long leagues.
Dec 8 - 7:45 PM

Marc Gasol (right groin) is questionable for Thursday against the Blazers.

This is a new injury for Gasol. He played a whopping 80 minutes combined on Monday and Tuesday, which is by far the most he's played in a back-to-back set. Gasol did play down the stretch on Tuesday night and didn't appear to be hurt. That said, the Grizzlies could choose to be careful with their best player even though they're not on a back-to-back set tonight. If he's out, Zach Randolph and Jarell Martin figure to pick up extra run. JaMychal Green's upside also goes up here.
Dec 8 - 4:12 PM

Marc Gasol said during Tuesday's postgame interview that he just wants the ball in his hands.

"I just want the ball," said Gasol. "I don't care where, how, I just want it and to be able to make a decision with it." Gasol is currently operating with a career-high 26.6 usage rate to accompany his career-high 24.5 assist percentage, and those two things have culminated in him pumping out top-30 value on the year with averages of 19.2 points, 5.9 boards, 4.2 assists, 1.6 blocks, 1.5 triples and just 2.1 turnovers per game. He's going to be a beast moving forward sans Mike Conley (back).
Dec 7 - 11:03 AM

Marc Gasol scored 26 points on 9-of-17 shooting with 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 34 minutes in Tuesday's 96-91 win over the 76ers.

This was the second night of a back-to-back set after Gasol triple-doubled on Monday with 28 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in a double-overtime win. He played 46 minutes in that contest, so coach David Fizdale said before Tuesday's game that he would play a "serviceable" amount of minutes vs Philly. Apparently that means 34. Gasol is rolling right now and his owners just need to hope that he stays healthy.
Dec 6 - 11:19 PM

Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale said that Marc Gasol will play a "serviceable" amount of minutes during Tuesday's matchup with the 76ers.

This could be a clue that Gasol will head to the bench early if the game turns into a blowout, thus making Gasol a slightly riskier play in daily leagues. He's obviously a must-start guy in season-long settings, though.
Dec 6 - 6:34 PM

Marc Gasol's crazy season continued on Monday when he had 28 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers on 11-of-25 shooting in 46 minutes of Monday's 110-108 double-overtime win against the Pelicans.

Gasol is insane right now, knocking down threes and flirting with a Russell Westbrook-like line tonight. Gasol, never known for assists or 3-pointers, has hit a three in all but three games this season, and has racked up 19 dimes over his last two games. He's returning third-round value right now, but that arrow appears to be pointing up after this one. And over his last five games? He's averaging 21.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.6 blocks and 2.0 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting.
Dec 6 - 12:37 AM

Marc Gasol scored 25 points in 32 minutes during a 95-94 comeback win over the Magic on Thursday, adding two rebounds, three assists, five blocks, one steal and two 3-pointers.

What a huge win for the Grizzlies. Coach David Fizdale continues to talk up The Nasty Nine, and his squad has just been money in tough situations. In fact, the Grizzlies are now 5-0 on the second night of a back-to-back set and they improved to 8-0 when the margin is within three points in the final minute. As for Gasol, the solid playing time after 35 minutes on Wednesday. He'll likely get rest at some point, but expect Gasol to post great stats sans Mike Conley (back).
Dec 2 - 1:26 AM

The Grizzlies will start Andrew Harrison, Tony Allen, Troy Williams, JaMychal Green and Marc Gasol on Thursday.

it's a home game on a back-to-back set, so there's a chance Gasol's minutes take a slight dip to play some of the younger guys. He should be very busy while Mike Conley (back) is on the mend.
Dec 1 - 7:49 PM

Marc Gasol scored 28 points during a 110-107 win at Miami on Saturday, adding three rebounds, six assists and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

After keeping Gasol to 26 minutes on Friday, coach David Fizdale let him rip in a revenge game against his former staff in Miami. Gasol's minutes have been just fine when he's not in a back-to-back set and he's looked very healthy after that preseason foot scare. On the year, Gasol is posting fourth-round value in standard leagues during his 33.2 minutes per game.
Nov 27 - 12:39 AM

Coach David Fizdale said Mike Conley and Marc Gasol will be close to normal minutes for Saturday against the Heat.

Gasol's minutes were kept in check at 26 on Friday, so he may get closer to his season average 33.1 tonight. Conley was also held in check to 23 minutes on Friday, so he should see over 30, as well. Plan accordingly.
Nov 26 - 6:46 PM

Marc Gasol filled up the boxscore on Wednesday with 27 points, four rebounds, four assists, three steals, three blocks and two 3-pointers, making 10-of-20 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs.

The Grizzlies have won six straight games despite getting nothing from key offseason addition Chandler Parsons, who will miss at least 10 more days. Gasol is a huge reason for the success and he's been all fantasy owners could have hoped for on draft day -- the 3-point shooting is real (1.5 per game on 42.2 percent), and his minute-limit is no longer an issue with 34+ minutes in three straight games.
Nov 23 - 11:28 PM

Marc Gasol hit 5-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 13 points, eight rebounds, nine assists, a steal, three blocks and five turnovers in 34 minutes on Monday.

He hit just 2-of-12 shots in his previous outing, but was back on track tonight. Sure, there was plenty of bad to go along with the good, but he flirted with a triple-double, put up stats in every category, and was largely responsible for the Grizzlies winning their fifth-straight game. He had hit 12 3-pointers in his career coming into this season, but has already knocked down 20 of them this season, which is a fun addition to his game. However, his shot is off right now, as he's hit just 12-of-38 over his last three games.
Nov 21 - 11:15 PM

Marc Gasol hit just 2-of-12 shots for six points, seven rebounds, three assists, one steals and two blocks in 35 minutes of Saturday's win over the Wolves.

Gasol has struggled in his last two games, hitting just 7-of-24 shots for a total of 17 points and 10 rebounds. This was also the first time he didn't hit a 3-pointer in his last five games. He'll get hot again soon and has a nice matchup with the Hornets on Monday. The Grizzlies have won four straight, are 3-0 in the second game of back-to-backs this season, and allowed a total of 135 points in their last two games, which ties a franchise record.
Nov 19 - 11:11 PM

Marc Gasol hit the go-ahead 3-pointer on Wednesday, finishing a 111-107 win vs. the Clippers with 26 points, six rebounds, six assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

Gasol also had one incredible celebratory dance which you can see via the link below. The 3-point shooting is a nice wrinkle for fantasy owners -- he had 12 triples in his career before this year, and he's now up to 16-of-40 on the season. Gasol's minutes have crept up and it'll be interesting to see how he's handled during a back-to-back set on Friday and Saturday.
