Marc Gasol said his main goal this offseason is to work on his rebounding.
"Obviously, rebounding is an issue for me," Gasol said. He's actually not bad at getting a rebound when he has a chance, but the stats say he's out of position a lot. Among the 176 players to log at least 24 minutes per game, Gasol ranked 41st in contested rebounding percentage, but he ranked just 91st in rebounding chance percentage. In other words, he should improve on getting better position before the shot hits the rim than after it. If Gasol can add 104 treys this season to his previous career total of just 12, maybe he can increase his boards from 6.4 per game in 2016-17 to closer to 10 in 2017-18. Apr 29 - 9:16 PM

Marc Gasol scored 18 points with five rebounds, six assists, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 45 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday.

The Grizzlies did get away from the heavy usage of Gasol in the post in the last two games, but the Spurs were able to make an adjustment to limit him with more physicality. Coach David Fizdale played Gasol a whopping 41.4 minutes per game in the last five games, and Gasol's minutes held steady at 34.2 per game during his 74 regular season outings. Considering the major concerns about his foot fracture heading into this season, this year was a win for Gasol, especially with how he added some 3-point shooting. He's 32, but his style of play should translate for a few more years.

Marc Gasol hit 6-of-12 shots for 17 points, seven rebounds, five assists, zero steals, zero blocks and zero 3-pointers in 41 minutes in Tuesday's Game 5 116-103 loss to the Spurs.

Gasol has been good for plenty of 3-pointers and blocked shots this season, but they weren't there tonight against San Antonio. He had 12 rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer in his previous game, a Grizzlies win, but didn't quite have it in this one. The Grizzlies will be looking for him to be on top of his game on Thursday, but if Gasol isn't rolling, along with Mike Conley, the Grizzlies' season could be ending that night.
Apr 25 - 11:50 PM

Marc Gasol hit a game-winning 12-foot runner with 0.7 seconds left in overtime to beat the Spurs 110-108 on Saturday, finishing with 16 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, one block, seven turnovers and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes.

It was a very difficult shot over LaMarcus Aldridge to earn the win in one of the best games you'll see in the next two months (video in link below). Gasol did look a step slow for most of this game and seven turnovers is very unusual for him. Coach David Fizdale has clearly hitched his wagon to Gasol and is likely going to ask him to play 40 minutes every night when garbage time isn't a factor. Considering how much Mike Conley dominated, the Spurs may focus more on limiting him, which may open things up for Gasol.
Apr 23 - 12:06 AM

Marc Gasol scored a playoff career-high 32 points during a 111-82 loss to the Spurs on Saturday, adding five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

His previous high was 26 points, but it still wasn't enough. Coach David Fizdale said Gasol and Mike Conley were going to have to step up in a big way, but it looked like coach Gregg Popovich coached up his guys to be more aggressive against Gasol on defense. The Grizzlies are just not as good as the Spurs, but at least Gasol is going to get his in this series.
Apr 15 - 10:43 PM

Marc Gasol scored 13 points during a 100-93 loss to the Mavs on Wednesday, adding eight rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

The Grizzlies will take on the Spurs on Saturday at 8 EDT for Game 1. Gasol didn't exactly fare well against them, averaging 13.8 points, 7.3 boards, 4.5 assists and 0.5 blocks. Coach David Fizdale is likely looking to give Gasol some heavy minutes, but a hot Mike Conley may take some shots away from Big Spain.
Apr 12 - 11:27 PM

Marc Gasol scored 16 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two triples in 34 minutes vs. the Knicks on Friday.

Gasol didn't shoot the ball well and finished 4-of-13 from the field, but made up for it by going 6-of-6 from the line. The Grizzlies locked up the No. 7 seed out West tonight, so they will face the Spurs in the first round of the playoffs. As for Gasol, there's a good chance that he's rested in at least one of the final two games of the regular season since he just returned from a foot injury.
Apr 7 - 11:02 PM

Marc Gasol (foot) finished Wednesday's game with 23 points (8-of-16 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), five rebounds, five assists, four blocks, three 3-pointers and two steals.

Gasol missed five games before returning on Tuesday, and the fact that he played in back-to-back contests bodes very well for his health. The big man has now made multiple 3-pointers in 30 games during his career, all of which have come this season, adding a welcome wrinkle to his fantasy profile. Tonight's loss basically cements Memphis as the No. 7 seed, with a looming first-round battle vs. the Spurs.
Apr 5 - 11:11 PM

Marc Gasol (foot) is expected to have "a little bit" of a minutes limit on Wednesday against the Thunder.

It's expected to be around his 30 minutes from Tuesday, so adjust accordingly. Gasol is still someone season-long owners have to use, but DFS players may want to go another way.
Apr 5 - 7:00 PM

Marc Gasol (foot) is listed as probable for Wednesday against the Thunder.

He made his return to the lineup on Tuesday, playing 30 minutes with 11 points, seven assists and six rebounds. The Grizzlies are somewhat comfortable in the standings, so they may be careful with their All-Star center. If he can't go, Zach Randolph and Brandan Wright would benefit.
Apr 5 - 4:19 PM

Marc Gasol (left foot strain) returned from a five-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Spurs, scoring 11 points with seven assists and six rebounds.

Gasol finished 5-of-11 from the field and added a triple and a steal, and while he was expected to have playing time restrictions, he ended up playing 30 minutes. It remains to be seen if the Grizzlies will let him play on Wednesday vs. the Thunder, but it certainly helps that both teams are fighting each other for playoff seeding -- the Grizzlies trail the Thunder by 2.5 games for the No. 6 seed.
Apr 5 - 1:02 AM

Marc Gasol (left foot strain) will play on Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

JaMychal Green (shoulder) is also going to give it a go, while Tony Allen (eye) will sit out. Gasol will be returning from a five-game absence and the Grizzlies have already locked up their playoff spot, so expect him to have playing time restrictions. Season-long owners should obviously deploy him, though. Brandan Wright, Zach Randolph and even James Ennis will lose value with Gasol and Green back.
Apr 4 - 7:10 PM

Marc Gasol (left foot strain), JaMychal Green (shoulder) and Tony Allen (eye) are all being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

Gasol has spent the past five games on the sidelines, which has resulted in Brandan Wright moving into the starting lineup where he has compiled averages of 10.8 points, 3.4 boards and 1.0 block per game on 64.9 percent shooting, so he could be someone to consider as a possible deep league streamer if Gasol is again forced to the sidelines on Tuesday night. James Ennis will start sans Green, and Troy Daniels might move into the starting five if Allen can't give it a go. Stay tuned.

Marc Gasol (left foot strain) will not play on Sunday vs. the Lakers.

This will be his fifth game in a row on the shelf. The Grizzlies have already clinched a playoff spot, so they are going to be cautious with the big man. With JaMychal Green (shoulder) also out, Zach Randolph is a great play on Sunday and Brandan Wright should have some low-end value in the short term.
Apr 1 - 8:09 PM

Marc Gasol (left foot strain) has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Mavericks.

This will be the fourth straight game Gasol has missed. Unfortunately, owners in the playoffs this week may need to cut Gasol to free up a valuable roster spot. Brandan Wright started in place of Gasol on Wednesday and tallied 13 points and four rebounds in 28 minutes. Zach Randolph will also see an uptick in playing time, especially with JaMychal Green (shoulder) also ruled out of Friday's game.
