Marc Gasol played 30 minutes and hit 4-of-11 shots for 10 points, six rebounds, nine assists and a steal, but also picked up five fouls in Wednesday's loss to the Thunder.
Gasol says he's going to finish out the season and the Grizzlies appear to feel the same way, but the fact remains they're 13.5 games or so out of the playoff race and there's no reason for him to keep going out there and beating up his body. There's still a chance Gasol is not shut down and finishes out the season, but if you own him, stashing Deyonta Davis as insurance makes some sense. Feb 14 - 11:31 PM

Marc Gasol posted a team-high 18 points with six rebounds, two blocked shots and two assists over 33 minutes in Sunday's 110-92 loss at Oklahoma City.

Gasol, the steadying veteran presence in Grind City, remains the centerpiece in the Memphis offense. The team has him under contract for at least one more season and they were not interested in moving him at the trade deadline. That's bad news for the likes of Deyonta Davis, JaMychal Green and Jarell Martin, who will have to bide their time until the logjam in the frontcourt is broken up.
Feb 11 - 11:08 PM

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Grizzlies "refuse to discuss trades" for Marc Gasol.

Woj added that the teams that have tried to engage the Grizzlies in talks have been "consistently shut down." Gasol is already 33, only has one guaranteed year left on his deal and Memphis are going nowhere this season, so it's a bid odd that they aren't even listening to offers. If we do get wind of a trade, Jarrell Martin, JaMychal Green and Deyonta Davis would benefit.
Feb 8 - 9:25 AM

The Grizzlies are not expected to trade Marc Gasol this season.

Memphis has reportedly fielded offers for their franchise big man, but they've been underwhelmed, and it doesn't seem like they're interested in going through a full rebuild at the moment. Things could always change if another team comes through with some sort of Godfather offer, but most reports to this point have the Grizzlies standing pat. If Gasol does remain in Memphis, there's a decent chance he'll get shut down at some point, so owners should be trying to sell high while he's still out there.
Feb 7 - 8:58 AM

Marc Gasol scored eight points during a blowout loss to the Hawks on Tuesday, adding six rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in 19 minutes.

Most reports say that Gasol isn't going to be traded, which makes sense because dealing him would mean they are going to go for a very long, grueling rebuild. Gasol could see his minutes dip later in the season, but keep rolling him out there while he's active.
Feb 6 - 9:52 PM

Marc Gasol scored 20 points on 6-of-16 shooting during Sunday's blowout loss to Toronto, adding six rebounds, five assists, two 3-pointers, one steal, two blocks and four turnovers in 37 minutes.

Gasol has been attempting a career-high 4.3 triples per contest this season, which can partly explain why he’s shooting a career-low 41.7% from the field this season, although a lot of that has to do with the lack of help around him. With another loss the Grizzlies dropped to 18-34 on the season, so if Gasol remains in Memphis this year, he could certainly be shut down at some point. Owners should be trying to sell-high while he's still out there, as a trade does not seem likely at this point.
Feb 4 - 3:42 PM

Marc Gasol scored 19 points with 14 rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer during 104-102 loss in Detroit on Thursday.

Make that his 21st double-double of the year to put him on pace for his best double-double season in is career (28 in 2009-10). The Grizzlies can't get into the win column and Gasol is under a lot of pressure for trade rumors. He doesn't like to talk about it and said he has enough on his plate when asked about Tyreke Evans on Wednesday. There's a chance he is dealt, but the Grizzlies would have to accept an offer they can't refuse. For what it's worth, they may not even take a deal from the Cavs for Tristan Thompson and the Nets pick, per reports.
Feb 1 - 9:58 PM

Marc Gasol turned in his fourth triple-double of his career during a 109-100 loss to the Clippers on Friday, scoring 13 points with 12 rebounds, 10 assists, five blocks and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He leads the franchise in triple-doubles and has really become part of the team's identity. The Grizzlies were starting to get it going earlier this month with a three-game winning streak from Jan. 15-19, but they've lost three of their last four with three home games in that span, too. Expect some trade rumors on Gasol, which would likely hurt his fantasy value.
Jan 27 - 12:35 AM

Marc Gasol scored 16 points with five rebounds, seven assists and three 3-pointers during a 111-104 loss to the Pelicans on Saturday.

Yesterday, he just matched his season-low six points and Gasol has not done much scoring this month, averaging 15.7 points, 8.8 boards, 4.2 assists, 1.3 blocks, 0.8 steals and 0.7 treys. He's still one of the best stat-stuffing centers in the league, so his fantasy owners have little to worry about as long as he's in the lineup.
Jan 20 - 10:03 PM

Marc Gasol (illness) returned from a one-game absence on Friday vs. the Kings and was quiet, scoring six points on 3-of-6 shooting with eight rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal.

He played just 27 minutes due to the lopsided score, so hopefully he responds well in the morning because the Grizzlies play the second game of a back-to-back set vs. the Pelicans. Teams usually don't shootaround on the second day of back-to-backs, so just make sure he's active later in the evening.
Jan 19 - 11:06 PM

Marc Gasol (illness) will play on Friday vs. the Kings.

He was originally expected to play, and now we have confirmation from head coach J.B. Bickerstaff. There's no word on any restrictions, but the Grizzlies will obviously keep a close eye on him. Deyonta Davis will head back to the bench where he loses his streaming appeal.
Jan 19 - 6:41 PM

Marc Gasol (illness) went through shootaround and is expected to play Friday vs. the Kings.

Gasol sat out Wednesday's victory over the Knicks but is on track to return to the lineup Friday evening. Deyonta Davis, who started in place of Gasol, will get bumped back to the bench. Gasol is averaging 18.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.4 treys per game this season.
Jan 19 - 12:05 PM

Marc Gasol (illness) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

Brandan Wright is also iffy to play due to illness, so there are plenty of question marks for the Grizzlies' frontcourt rotation. Deyonta Davis, JaMychal Green and Jarell Martin would all benefit if Gasol and/or Wright can't suit up. We'll have more information after Friday's shootaround.
Jan 18 - 6:02 PM

Marc Gasol (illness) and Brandan Wright will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

Well, the Grizzlies are going to be short up front today, and chances are it'll be Deyonta Davis getting the start. Gasol was very sick this morning, so it's possible he won't be ready for Friday. For tonight, Davis makes some sense as a DFS punt play or as a stream in 14-team leagues. Expect to see more Jarell Martin, as well.
Jan 17 - 6:22 PM

Marc Gasol (illness) did not go through shootaround and is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

Gasol is likely going to be a game-time call tonight, but if he is forced to the sidelines, Deyonta Davis or Brandan Wright would draw the start, while Tyreke Evans' usage rate would likely go into the ridiculous range. JaMychal Green would also spend more time at the five than usual. Stay tuned.
