Marc Gasol (right foot) has begun walking without the assistance of crutches.
Gasol is still going to miss the remainder of the season, but we'll continue to track his progress each step of the way. Unfortunately for Gasol, he's dealing with a fracture to his navicular bone, which can be a troublesome area for bigs, as it's in a region of the foot that doesn't receive a lot of blood flow. He's looking at a very lengthy recovery, and will be a risky selection in next year's drafts. Apr 6 - 11:50 AM

The Grizzlies are reportedly optimistic regarding Marc Gasol's recovery from a fractured right foot, and believe that as long as he takes his recovery seriously, that this won't be a career-altering injury.

Memphis has been encouraged by the fact that Gasol has been diagnosed with a Type II fracture, meaning that the navicular bone in Gasol's mid-foot was displaced, rather than being completely broken as in a Type III fracture. However, the navicular bone is a particularly troublesome injury for big men as it's in an area of the foot that doesn't get a lot of blood flow, which makes the recovery process tricky. We'll be monitoring Gasol's recovery each step of the way, but given the history of mid-foot fractures for big men, Marc is going to be a risky guy to draft next season.

Marc Gasol (foot) had a successful surgery to repair non-displaced Type II fracture of the navicular bone in his right foot, according to Chris Herrington of the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

Gasol's surgery happened on Saturday and goes to affirm the expectation that he will miss the rest of the 2015-16 season. While it's great news to see Gasol undergo a successful surgery, there are initial indications that his recovery timetable will be longer than initially expected. Fantasy owners can feel free to move on from the big man this season.

Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace said that the team is still in "fact-finding mode" regarding Marc Gasol's (foot) injury, and they have yet to release an official timeline for Gasol's return.

"We're still in a fact-finding mode on his injury," said Wallace. "I don't want to go into any great particulars other than we're consulting with medical experts available to us, including our own, and coming up with the proper course of action. I think long-term he'll be fine." A report out of Spain speculated that Gasol would miss at least the next 4-6 months of action, and while that timeline is a reasonable estimate, we're still waiting for official word from Memphis. To be clear, there's no way Gasol makes it back to the court this season.

Marc Gasol (broken right foot) is expected to miss 4-6 months, according to Spanish site Marca.

That would put him out for the postseason and possibly the 2016 Olympics. A midfoot fracture is a long-term concern for a big man, so Gasol taking it slow makes a lot of sense. If you have Gasol in a re-draft league, it's probably time to drop him. For now, the Grizzlies will go smaller with Jeff Green, Matt Barnes, Courtney Lee and Tony Allen getting more minutes with all worth owning in standard leagues. Brandan Wright (knee) also becomes a very intriguing stash.

Marc Gasol reportedly has a broken right foot and will be out indefinitely.

Oh man, the Grizzlies were initially calling this a foot sprain, but obviously the injury turned out to be much worse. Foot injuries for seven-footers are never good, and this could potentially be a season-ending injury for the Memphis big man. Jeff Green and Matt Barnes are going to see a minutes boost with Marc out, with Zach Randolph and Mike Conley being asked to do the heavy lifting on offense. Matt Barnes should be considered a must-add here. Brandan Wright (knee) should also be in the rotation once he gets back from his injury, so he makes sense as a speculative add in deep leagues.

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

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.
