Marc Gasol scored 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting (including a three) with 10 rebounds and two blocks as the Grizzlies rolled over the Sixers by the score of 117-95 on Friday.
While Gasol feasted the box wasn't so kind to Mike Conley (two points, eight assists, 23 minutes), who wasn't needed in the lopsided win. Zach Randolph turned in 10 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks. Apr 12 - 1:44 AM

Date:

Marc Gasol controlled the paint against the Nuggets during Friday's 100-92 win, scoring a season-high 24 points with five boards, three assists and one block in 36 minutes.

The Nuggets have been an easy matchup for a lot of front courts and Zach Randolph also had a big night with 20 points. Gasol is shooting the ball about 2.0 percent better after the break compared to before that point, so he's getting at the right time.
Apr 4 - 10:36 PM

Marc Gasol played through an ankle injury on Saturday and had 10 points, nine rebounds, a steal and two blocks on 4-of-11 shooting.

He was a game-time decision coming in and while he didn't set any records, he nearly double-doubled and looked dominant against Roy Hibbert. The Grizzlies play Minnesota on Monday and while it appears that Gasol should be ready to go for that one, owners will want to keep an eye out for more news on his ankle.

Marc Gasol is in the starting lineup against the Pacers on Saturday.

His Grade I sprain seems like it'll be a minor issue and we'll let you know how he looks. Prior to this season, Gasol had been very durable, but he's run into some bad luck this season.
Mar 22 - 8:07 PM

Marc Gasol had a Grade I left ankle sprain and is a game-time call for Saturday's game vs. the Pacers.

He left the arena in a walking boot on Friday and it would appear that was more of a precautionary measure more than anything else. If Gasol can't play, the Grizzlies figure to give more run to Kosta Koufos. We'll pass along any info on his status as the info becomes available.

Marc Gasol left the arena in a walking boot after leaving Friday's game against the Heat due to a sprained left ankle.

It's unclear how precautionary that boot is but it's certainly not 'good news' for now. We'll keep you updated as the news comes in, and there isn't really a huge speculative add following this news. Courtney Lee (12 points, two threes, three steals) might get a few extra touches and secure late-round value, but any add there assumes that Gasol misses more than a few games. Kosta Koufos has not been impressive in fill-in duty in the past.
Mar 21 - 10:50 PM

Marc Gasol was originally going to return to Friday's game after spraining his left ankle, but later he and the Grizzlies decided that he would call it an early night.

Gasol's injury didn't appear to be serious but leaving a tight game they need to win speaks louder than what we saw on the court. Kosta Koufos hasn't done much in fill-in duty but he would be worth keeping an eye on for those truly desperate for a big man, and a borderline player like Courtney Lee might get a boost if the injury is serious.
Mar 21 - 9:48 PM

Marc Gasol tweaked his ankle in Friday's game against the Heat but returned in the third quarter.

So far this seems like a minor injury and if that changes we'll let you know.
Mar 21 - 9:26 PM

Marc Gasol blocked four shots against the Jazz on Wednesday with 20 points, 10 boards and three assists in 37 minutes.

It's the first 20-point, 10-board game of the season and he also matched his season high in blocks, so this may be one of his best games of the season. Gasol is also having his best shooting month of the season and his fantasy owners have to be pleased to see their early-round pick turn it on when it counts.
Mar 19 - 11:31 PM

Marc Gasol got hot on Tuesday and torched the Blazers for 19 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and a block on 8-of-14 shooting.

After struggling for much of the season, Gasol is rolling right now, averaging 15.8 points, 8.4 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.0 blocks over his last five games, just in time for the fantasy playoffs.
Mar 11 - 11:04 PM

Marc Gasol hit his first 3-pointer of the season on Saturday with 22 points, eight boards, six assists and one block in 40 minutes.

It's the first time he's played 40 minutes since the All-Star break and he's really starting to get his act together. In his last five games, Gasol averaged 17.0 points, 7.2 boards, 1.8 blocks and 1.2 steals on 50.8 percent from the field. This is what his owners signed up for and hopefully it can continue.
Mar 2 - 12:17 AM

Marc Gasol scored 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in Friday's loss to the Thunder.

Gasol has been quiet while dealing with his knee injury and we need to see more before making any declaration that he's back to his old lofty standards. But it's a step in the right direction and that's good enough for owners these days. Mike Conley hit just 1-of-10 shots for six points, nine assists and five turnovers, and Zach Randolph was also inefficient with 13 points on 5-of-14 shooting, 10 boards and a steal.
Feb 28 - 10:58 PM

Marc Gasol played through his knee injury on Tuesday, hitting 4-of-7 shots for eight points, seven rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 26 minutes.

The good news is that he played, but the bad news is that he looked like the same Marc Gasol we've seen over the course of this entire season. Maybe he'll finally get hot before it's all said and done, but the odds don't appear to be in his favor and time is starting to run out.
Feb 18 - 11:57 PM

Updating a previous report, Marc Gasol (knee) said that he will play on Tuesday.

Coach Dave Joerger also included Gasol in his projected starting lineup, so fantasy owners shouldn't hesitate to activate him. With luck the All-Star break will have been sufficient for Gasol to shake his nagging knee problems, which have contributed to his sluggish averages over the past two months -- 10.9 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.1 blocks per game.
Feb 18 - 12:18 PM

Marc Gasol (knee) will be a game-time decision vs. the Knicks on Tuesday.

An MRI cleared Gasol of any structural damage, but this is an aggravation of the sprained MCL that sidelined him for weeks and Memphis is being duly cautious. The Grizzlies play three times in Week 17, so Gasol's availability on Tuesday could make or break his weekly value.
