Marc Gasol (ankle, foot) will be on a "relative minutes restriction" as the season starts.
Michael Wallace of reported that Coach Fizdale will look to limit Gasol's minutes early on this season. It remains unclear how limiting the restriction will be, and how long it will last. It is a fluid situation and should be monitored as such. Stay tuned... Oct 24 - 3:27 PM

Marc Gasol (ankle, foot) played 20 minutes vs. the Wolves on Wednesday, turning in six points on 2-of-10 shooting, four rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Gasol's playing time was actually more than anticipated given his recent injury. "Timing ... you don't want to go 10-12 days without playing," Gasol said, explaining the decision to suit up at less than 100 percent. The good news is that he didn't injure his surgically-repaired bone, so this shouldn't have lasting implications in the regular season. Memphis will be cautious with him all year, including occasional DNP-CDs, but owners can expect him to be ready for opening night.

Marc Gasol (ankle, foot) will start against the Wolves on Wednesday.

He tweeted out "it's all good baby baby" on Saturday night, so he certainly wasn't kidding. Gasol said he wants to build his conditioning, so it doesn't sound like he will be limited. His foot surgery last season caused a bit of a scare over the weekend, but this is something to watch. If Gasol can stay healthy, the sky is the limit in an up-tempo Memphis offense.
Oct 19 - 6:41 PM

An MRI on Marc Gasol's right foot revealed a bone bruise and it's not the same bone that he had surgery on.

This is very good news. He will sit out of Wednesday's preseason finale as planned, but it sounds like he's probable for opening night. Gasol is taking more 3-pointers these days which his fantasy owners will love, but he will also have some maintenance days this season and he's a little riskier than usual because of the durability concerns. For what it's worth, Gasol did some conditioning work and got some shots up as well on Monday.
Oct 17 - 1:50 PM

Marc Gasol (ankle) said he was fine and there is no reason to worry.

It sounds like it was just a scare. He was dealing with some soreness earlier in the day and it loosened up during the game. Gasol wasn't icing his foot and didn't show much concern. In fact, he even tweeted out a Notorious BIG GIF saying "it's all good baby baby." Even though this was still just a scare, we'd be a little apprehensive about drafting him until he slides a tad.

Marc Gasol is dealing with a sore right ankle on Saturday.

He's obviously not out of the woods yet and the Grizzlies are still likely going to re-evaluate him. Tony Allen left the bench to go and check on Gasol, but Allen did return to the sidelines. Expect another update on Gasol tonight at some point. For now, fantasy owners shouldn't be aggressive on Gasol in drafts until he gets the all clear. Even if he is cleared, we're still going to bump him down on our draft boards.

Marc Gasol took off his right shoe and went to the locker room on Saturday.

Yes, this is the same right foot Gasol needed surgery on earlier this calendar year. He'll almost certainly get an X-ray in the near future and should be re-evaluated. For now, all we can do is sit tight.
Oct 15 - 9:56 PM

Marc Gasol made three 3-pointers during his 21-point game on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, three assists and three steals.

Those three treys were more than he made in all of last season. The talk of Gasol adding a 3-pointer seems like it's legitimate, but he is still likely to just be in the 0.2-0.7 per game range for makes. While he does have renewed upside with coach David Fizdale, Gasol's foot injury from last year is the biggest concern here. He's in the mix as a high-reward pick in the fifth round.
Oct 14 - 12:06 AM

Marc Gasol (foot) returned to action and played 13 minutes on Monday vs. the Magic, scoring 10 points on 5-of-11 shooting with two rebounds, one assist and two turnovers.

We knew his workload was going to be limited coming in, but that's a solid stat line for a guy who's been on the shelf for months. There have been some reports that Gasol will attempt more 3-pointers this season, but he missed a pair of them tonight. The Grizzlies will monitor his workload throughout the year and have hinted that he will have some maintenance days, making him a risky mid-round target.
Oct 3 - 11:11 PM

Marc Gasol will start on Monday night.

He's certainly going to be limited on playing time and probably won't play in the second half. The Grizzlies are expected to push the pace more, so it'll be interesting to see how Gasol adjusts to that change.
Oct 3 - 7:55 PM

Marc Gasol (foot) will sit out games as a precaution this season, according to coach David Fizdale.

"There will be some games we sit him," said Fizdale. "I’m definitely going to preserve him." Fizdale also said that he will "absolutely be careful with Gasol’s minutes this season," which isn't a surprise since the Grizzlies' star center is coming back from a fractured navicular bone. If you needed a reminder of the high risk that Gasol brings as a fantasy target, this is it. Brandan Wright will likely take over at center whenever Gasol is rested, giving him sporadic DFS appeal.
Sep 28 - 1:40 PM

Marc Gasol (foot) was able to go through all portions of the Grizzlies two-hour practice on Tuesday.

Gasol has been fully cleared for all activities, so he's on track to be good to go for opening night. The reports coming in on Gasol's recovery have been nothing but positive this offseason, although mid-foot fractures for seven-footers is nothing to shrug at as they do have the potential to develop into a reoccurring issue. Gasol does offer second-round upside, but the very real injury concerns will make him a risky mid-round target.
Sep 27 - 4:51 PM

Marc Gasol said that his recovery from foot surgery amazed him and that he hasn't discussed any minute restrictions with the Grizzlies yet.

"I never felt anything around the foot area [after the surgery], which gives me a lot of confidence," Gasol said. "[I've gotten] stronger by the week and stronger by the day to this point where we feel 100-percent confident of my capability of leading the team." Tony Allen also mentioned that Gasol added a 3-point shot to his game this summer, so that's something to keep an eye on during the preseason. We've heard several positive reports about Gasol in recent weeks, but because of the history of bigs recovering from foot fractures, he's still a risky pick this year.
Sep 26 - 2:49 PM

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.
