Marc Gasol made a career-high 16-of-17 free throws in 36 minutes vs. the Warriors on Saturday, finishing with 34 points, 14 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal.
Zaza Pachulia couldn't handle him and he worked over the Warriors' small lineups all night long. Gasol was limited this preseason by an ankle injury he sustained while playing for Spain in EuroBasket, which may have caused his ADP to slip a bit, but the 32-year-old has looked great while helping Memphis earn a 2-0 start this season. He's a lock for top-40 value when healthy. Oct 21 - 11:23 PM

Marc Gasol (ankle) looked fine in 24 minutes vs. the Rockets, putting up 12 points, four assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block.

Gasol went 5-of-13 from the field and 2-of-2 from the free throw line, but the important fact is that he's healthy. The 32-year-old appeared in 74 games last season, easing fantasy owners' concerns, and he's a reliable center to target in the third round.
Oct 12 - 12:41 AM

Marc Gasol (foot) tallied four points, 13 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks over 22 minutes in his preseason debut vs. the Hawks on Monday.

His shot wasn't dropping (2-of-9 from the field), but it was certainly encouraging to see Gasol stuffing the stat sheet on Monday night. He looks fully healthy after suffering a minor ankle injury back in August at the EuroBasket tournament. Feel confident drafting him as your starting center. He will typically come off the board around pick No. 30.
Oct 10 - 9:56 AM

Marc Gasol (foot) will play on Monday vs. the Hawks.

He practiced in full a few days ago, and the Grizzlies wouldn't activate him for a preseason game if he wasn't 100 percent. Now that Gasol has a 3-point shot in his arsenal (1.4 triples per game last season), he looks like a solid target in the third round of standard leagues.
Oct 9 - 12:19 PM

Marc Gasol (foot) is officially 'questionable' for Monday's game vs. the Hawks.

Gasol practiced without limitations on Friday, so the odds are very good that he'll suit up. He shook off the injury bug last season, averaging 34.2 minutes in 74 appearances, and remains a solid center to target in the third round.
Oct 8 - 8:14 PM

Marc Gasol (ankle) returned to a full practice on Friday.

"I've got to get the guys used to playing with me," Gasol said about missing time. He is fully expected to make his preseason debut on Monday against the Hawks after missing the last two. Big Spain is going to turn 33 later in this season, but he's coming off 34-plus minutes per game in each of the last two seasons. There is some risk in drafting a player at that age, but Gasol is still a fine choice in the early rounds, especially with how thin center is this year.
Oct 6 - 2:59 PM

Marc Gasol (ankle) will make his preseason debut Monday vs. Atlanta.

Gasol will be sitting out Memphis' first two preseason games as he continues his rehab from a minor ankle injury suffered during the EuroBasket tournament, but he'll be out there on Monday night, which should quell any concerns about this being an issue that could linger into the regular season. He was a top-30 player in 9-cat leagues last season with averages of 19.5 points, 6.2 boards, 4.6 dimes, 1.4 triples and 1.3 blocks per game and he'll make for a safe early-round target on draft day.
Oct 4 - 11:43 AM

Marc Gasol (ankle) will not suit up for Wednesday's preseason game against the 76ers.

If it were the regular season, Gasol would likely be playing through this minor ankle injury, but the Grizzlies will wisely be taking a cautious approach here with the games being irrelevant. His next opportunity to play will come Monday vs. Atlanta, and for now, we'll be considering him questionable for that one.
Oct 3 - 2:26 PM

Marc Gasol said his ankle is improving and that he's "happy with the progression."

Gasol initially suffered the minor ankle injury playing for Spain during the EuroBasket tournament. "We’re still recovering the ankle. We want to be back at 100 percent," Gasol said. "We don’t want any setbacks. It’s hard to put a percentage on it, but we’re improving." Grizzlies coach David Fizdale told reporters on Monday that the team is fully confident that Gasol will be ready for the season opener and they are simply being cautious.
Oct 3 - 9:44 AM

David Fizdale is confident that Marc Gasol (ankle) will be ready for Memphis' regular-season opener on October 18.

"He’ll be ready. He really is already but he had a long summer of play. I’d rather that we preserve him so that he’s feeling great by the regular season," said Fizdale. "We’re just being cautious. Right now, it doesn’t count. We’ll get him cranked up midweek. We’re taking our time with him and working with [the ankle] in a way so that when the season hits, he’ll make full strides." Gasol could sit out a handful of preseason games, but he'll be on the court once the games matter.
Oct 2 - 4:35 PM

Marc Gasol (ankle) will not play in Monday's preseason game against the Magic.

Gasol tweaked his ankle during Spain's bronze medal game at the EuroBasket tournament, so the Grizzlies will be handling him with kid gloves early on in the preseason. He did play through the injury at the tournament, but there's no reason for Memphis to risk Gasol suffering a setback during a meaningless game. Gasol will make for a fine early-round target on draft day.
Oct 1 - 6:45 PM

Marc Gasol scored 25 points to help Spain take the bronze medal at Eurobasket with a 93-85 win over Russia.

Gasol suffered an ankle injury early in the game and was in the locker room for the entire second quarter, but he started the second half and didn't seem limited down the stretch. He shot 6-of-11 from the field with four rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one triple in 31 minutes. With the NBA regular season a month away, there's no reason to be concerned about his ankle. As long as the Grizzlies are competitive in the loaded Western Conference, Gasol shouldn't have any problem returning value at his current ADP.
Sep 17 - 12:07 PM

Marc Gasol posted a 28-point, 10-rebound double-double during Spain's 84-72 win over Germany on Tuesday, to go with four assists, four 3-pointers, one steal and two blocks in 30 minutes.

Gasol dominated both ends of the floor in this one, and his brother Pau wasn't too shabby himself, tallying 19 points, four boards, two assists and one block in his 28 minutes of floor time. Spain will now face Slovenia in the semifinals, but with the way their team has been rolling, it would be quite shocking if they didn't advance to the championship round. As for fantasy hoops, Marc has looked great at the tournament and will make for a fine early-round selection on draft day.
Sep 12 - 3:31 PM

The Grizzlies reportedly view Marc Gasol as "untouchable" in trade talks.

Gasol made headlines in August when he hinted to a Spanish newspaper that if the Grizzlies didn't continue to improve that the two sides would have to "revisit things," but sources of Matt Moore of CBS Sports indicate that those comments didn't seriously strain the relationship between Gasol and Memphis. The Grizzlies seem committed to building around Mike Conley and Gasol, and with Gasol under contract for at least another two seasons, there's no need for Memphis to test the market.

Sep 6 - 1:00 PM

Marc Gasol racked up another three blocks during Tuesday's win over Croatia, adding nine points, eight rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 31 minutes.

Gasol is currently the lead shot blocker through the first four games of the EuroBasket tournament at 2.0 a night, so he's obviously been a huge factor in Team Spain's undefeated streak thus far. He's coming off a top-30 season in which he hit career-highs in scoring (19.5), dimes (4.6) and triples (1.4), and he shouldn't have much trouble replicating that success during the 2017-18 season.
