Marc Gasol is dealing with a right mid-foot sprain and will not return to Monday's game vs. the Blazers.
This is the same foot issue that has been a problem for him recently, and he was considered questionable to even suit up. He lasted just 11 minutes before hobbling back to the locker room, so the Grizzlies might be more inclined to hold him out until the All-Star break. In the meantime, Zach Randolph will play more center and Ryan Hollins will play more off the bench. Feb 8 - 8:59 PM

Date:

Marc Gasol (foot) limped to the locker room during Monday's game vs. the Blazers after fighting for a loose ball.

He has been dealing with a sore left knee and a sore right foot recently, so the Grizzlies should probably just hold him out with the All-Star break right around the corner. Gasol was in a lot of pain, but he should be considered questionable to return for now. If he misses time, Zach Randolph and Ryan Hollins will have to step up.
Feb 8 - 8:40 PM

Marc Gasol (knee) will start on Monday vs. the Blazers.

He was always expected to play, but it should be noted that he isn't 100 percent. Regardless, the All-Star break is coming up which will allow Gasol to get some extra rest. His owners shouldn't be too concerned.
Feb 8 - 8:12 PM

Marc Gasol (foot) is expected to play against the Blazers on Monday.

He is not going to be 100 percent and has been playing through some soreness. Gasol played 37 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday and he should see a similar amount of playing time tonight. Keep him in your lineups.
Feb 8 - 6:38 PM

Marc Gasol (right foot) is questionable to play against the Blazers on Monday.

He admitted he is playing through an injury and described it as "playing on one leg." The Grizzlies have a game on Monday and Wednesday, so they might want to be careful with Gasol this week before the break. If he can't go, expect to see a lot of small-ball lineups from the Grizzlies.
Feb 8 - 2:12 PM

Marc Gasol admitted that he's currently playing through an injury.

"I have some issues, but you have to push through it," Gasol said. "I’m never going to use not being 100 percent as an excuse. It’s just not me. I’m going to push through it and give whatever I have to my team. That’s how I’ve always been, and that’s how it’s going to be." Coach Dave Joerger recently said that Gasol is "playing on one leg," so the All-Star break can't come soon enough for the big man. Through three February games, Gasol is averaging 15.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.3 blocks on 55.3 percent shooting. Despite the injury concern, selling low doesn't make sense, and Gasol is fully expected to continue playing at less than full strength.
Feb 8 - 9:28 AM

Memphis coach Dave Joerger admitted that Marc Gasol is basically "playing on one leg" at the moment.

Neither Joerger or Gasol would elaborate, but the big man has been on the injury report in recent weeks with a sore left knee. The All-Star break can't come soon enough for Gasol, but the good news is that there has been no indication that he will miss any time. Expect him to be out there on Monday vs. the Blazers.
Feb 7 - 9:56 AM

Marc Gasol scored 22 points in a loss to the Mavericks on Saturday with six boards, two assists and one block in 37 minutes.

He was an efficient 9-of-15 from the field, but he hit just 4-of-6 from the line and had a couple of turnovers. The Grizzlies were on a five-game winning streak coming into this one, but they will look to bounce back in a difficult matchup with the Blazers on Monday.
Feb 6 - 11:52 PM

Marc Gasol scored 14 points with three rebounds, seven assists and two blocks in 32 minutes against the Pelicans during a 110-95 win on Monday.

His knee was not a problem tonight as he handled the post nicely. Gasol's knee has been an issue in the last two seasons, but he still hasn't missed a game this season. The Grizzlies are off until Friday and have a back-to-back.
Feb 2 - 12:28 AM

Marc Gasol (knee) will start on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

He has been on the injury report with a sore left knee for over a week, but he hasn't missed a game yet. The Grizzlies have been playing him heavy minutes, so he's likely just a little fatigued. Get him active and we will let you know how he holds up after the game.
Feb 1 - 7:58 PM

Marc Gasol (sore left knee) is expected to play on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

He's not even listed on the injury report, and that's a good example of why going off of game notes more than 24 hours in advance of any contest is often incredibly misleading. Gasol will occupy his usual spot in the starting five, and fantasy GMs can feel confident plugging him into the lineup .
Feb 1 - 12:57 PM

Marc Gasol (left knee) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Gasol tends to play if he's capable of walking, so he's probably a bit closer to probable for Monday's game. However, if he's unable to give it a go, the Grizzlies would likely go with a lot of small ball lineups with Matt Barnes and Jeff Green having the opportunity to return to the starting five. Stay tuned.
Jan 31 - 2:55 PM

Marc Gasol scored 22 points in Saturday's 121-117 win over the Kings, adding six boards, five assists, two steals and five blocks in 34 minutes.

He was impressive on both ends of the court, but his biggest accomplishment was holding DeMarcus Cousins to 3-of-17 shooting from the field. Gasol has been on the injury report this week due to some knee soreness, but this was arguably one of the best games of his season. His owners shouldn't be concerned.
Jan 30 - 11:54 PM

Marc Gasol (knee) and Zach Randolph (toe) are good to go for Saturday's game vs. the Kings.

Both players were on the injury report, but their status for tonight's game was never in doubt. Feel free to plug them into your lineups.
Jan 30 - 6:37 PM

Marc Gasol (knee) played 42 minutes against the Magic on Monday with 17 points, five rebounds, five assists, four steals and two blocks.

He looked a lot better tonight, but the matchup was very favorable against Nikola Vucevic. Gasol and the Grizzlies get a few days off and won't play again until Thursday when the Bucks come to town. That should help Gasol get closer to 100 percent.
