Marc Gasol (foot surgery) has been cleared for full activities during the Grizzlies' training camp.
Gasol had a fractured navicular bone in his right foot, a serious injury for any big man, but he's been ramping up his workouts under strict medical supervision. "I feel really good, lots of energy," Gasol said. "The doctors and everyone think my body’s going to hold up tremendously - even better than before the injury. That gives me a lot of confidence." An injured player expressing optimism is nothing new, but Gasol has enough proven upside to be worth a look in the middle rounds of most drafts. Sep 21 - 11:53 PM

Marc Gasol (right foot) has been cleared to play after recovering from a broken right foot.

He is expected to be a full participant for training camp in a couple weeks. The 31-year-old big man suffered his season-ending injury in February and has been rehabbing for most of the offseason. While he will be active, the team will proceed with caution for their star center, especially with the history of bigs recovering from foot fractures. There's a lot of risk here, but Gasol is worth it in the early middle rounds.
Sep 16 - 2:31 PM

The Grizzlies indicated in a recent press release that Marc Gasol (foot) will participate in a full-team scrimmage on October 1.

There hasn't been much information on Gasol's recovery from a mid-foot fracture that ended his 2015-16 campaign 52 games into the season, but if he is a full participant during the Open Practice on October 1, that would be a very positive sign regarding his outlook for the upcoming season. Thus far, all we know is that Gasol's foot has been "healing as expected," and that he's gone through some half-court sets with his former Spanish club. However, until we see him on the court, he's going to be an extremely risky guy to spend a draft pick on.
Sep 7 - 12:18 PM

Marc Gasol (foot) said all indications show that his foot is healing as expected.

While Gasol told a Spanish newspaper that he was a few weeks away from playing in the Olympics, it sounds like he could be ready for training camp. "I'm really well and looking forward to starting [the season]," Gasol said. "I miss the competition, playing and enjoying basketball. All indications are that the foot is fine. I've practiced with the [Girona basketball club] juniors all I could, especially half-court sets." We'll keep an eye on the big man's recovery as training camp nears, but Gasol will be a risky fantasy pick until we know more.

Marc Gasol (foot) will not play in the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Gasol's foot still hasn't healed from the injury that cut short his 2015-16 season and he will not be able to join Team Spain in Brazil. While it's not time to hit the panic button just yet, Gasol's fantasy stock for the 2016-17 season will take a hit if we don't get more positive news closer to draft day.
Jul 19 - 11:56 AM

Marc Gasol (foot) still does not have medical clearance, according to a report from Marca.com.

Despite being included on Spain's 20-man roster for the 2016 Olympics, it's basically impossible to envision any kind of participation for the big man. Gasol had surgery toward the end of February, so we're now more than four months beyond the date of the operation. If the slow progress continues to linger this summer, Gasol's fantasy stock will be impacted accordingly.
Jun 27 - 10:35 AM

Marc Gasol (foot) said he expects to run on a low-gravity treadmill in the near future.

He's unlikely to play for Spain in the Olympics due to his foot fracture. His injury is no joke for big men, so the Grizzlies may want him to sit out. Although, Gasol said the team isn't pressuring him on the decision. He said he's met with new coach David Fizdale and likes his forward-thinking approach, so the new approach is something to watch next year.
Jun 6 - 3:02 PM

In an interview with Spanish newspaper As, Marc Gasol (foot) said it's unlikely that he will play in the Olympics.

"I'm not going to lie, it's very difficult," said Gasol. "The training camp starts in less than a month and I still can't run." Recent reports have indicated that Gasol's rehab from his fractured right foot is "on schedule," but it wouldn't make sense for him to rush the recovery process to play for Spain. Hopefully he will be ready for the start of the 2016-17 season, but there should be plenty of updates on his progress this summer.

The Grizzlies reportedly met with Spurs assistant coach James Borrego on Sunday to discuss their vacant head coaching job.

San Antonio's pool of assistants is always a popular destination for teams seeking a new coach, and Borrego has brief head coaching experience with the Magic after Jacque Vaughn's firing in 2015. He joins a list of prospective candidates that includes Frank Vogel, Ettore Messina, Nate Tibbetts, Patrick Ewing and Dave Fizdale.

Marc Gasol's rehab from a fractured right foot is "on schedule."

Gasol said that there haven't been any setbacks and added that the Grizzlies are being extremely cautious and won't rush the process. He was having a down year prior to the injury with averages of 16.6 points, 7.0 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 steals, so the 31-year-old big man might be available at a significant discount in fantasy drafts next season.
Apr 30 - 12:21 PM

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.
Feb 24 - 9:09 AM

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.
Feb 23 - 11:53 AM

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.
Feb 17 - 11:58 AM

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.
