Pau Gasol (calf) was a full participant during Sunday's practice, and is hopeful he'll be able to suit up for Monday's game vs. the Jazz.
Gasol said that he's feeling much better, and he hasn't had a setback with the calf strain so far, so things are looking positive for him returning to action on Monday. However, if Gasol is unable to go Nikola Mirotic would be in for a heavy heaping of minutes with Taj Gibson (ankle) already ruled out for Monday and Tuesday. Nov 23 - 2:35 PM

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol (calf) went through on-court drills on Friday and wrote that he's "getting closer to [a] return."

Gasol could return Monday in Utah or Tuesday in Denver. His improving health is welcome news for Chicago, which has lost two straight games and may be forced to play without Taj Gibson (ankle) for a while.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol (calf) will not play against the Blazers on Friday night.

This will be his third game out of the lineup since being called "probable" for Monday. Gasol has been outstanding with the Bulls, but perhaps he was playing too many minutes. Taj Gibson was a letdown on Thursday thanks to Jason Thompson playing out of his mind on defense, but his owners should fire him up in all leagues tonight.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol (strained calf) will not play vs. the Kings on Thursday.

He's questionable to return for Friday's game vs. the Blazers, but said on Wednesday that he must be patient to avoid aggravating the injury. Hopefully his status will once again be determined after Chicago's shootaround, rather than moments before tip-off. Taj Gibson is a terrific option with Gasol out on Thursday, especially with Joakim Noah still playing on a minute-limit.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol (calf) said on Wednesday that he has to be patient with his calf strain.

He said he has to go by how he feels and it sounds like he's going to sit out on Thursday night against the Kings. It's become a huge guessing game with the Bulls on the injury report, but we'll continue to try and piece it together leading up to Thursday night. Until then, Taj Gibson looks like a phenomenal player to own while Nikola Mirotic will get some chances, as well.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol (calf) will not practice on Wednesday, and should be considered questionable for Thursday's game.

He had to sit out vs. the Clippers on Monday, so it would not be surprising if he had to miss Thursday's game as well. Gasol has been a force for the Bulls early on this season, and owners will have to remain patient until a positive report surfaces. In the meantime, Taj Gibson will continue to start in his absence and will be a must-start player.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol (calf) will not play against the Clippers on Monday.

He was listed as probable and is now the second Bull this season to be listed as probable and not play (Derrick Rose is the first). With Gasol out, Taj Gibson will get plenty of run and needs to be in 100 percent of lineups tonight. Gasol is hopeful to play against the Kings and sustained the injury on Saturday.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol (calf) is listed as probable with a left calf strain for Monday's game against the Clippers.

There was no indication of a calf strain before this report and we'd be shocked to see him sit tonight. Gasol has no noteworthy calf issues since at least 2003.
Nov 17 - 2:43 PM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol dominated against the Raptors on Thursday with 27 points 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal three blocks and two turnovers.

He made 12-of-19 from the field and just owned the paint tonight. Gasol has been rolling in his days with the Bulls and has seen an upward trend in his production, averaging 20.4 points, 12.2 points. 2.2 assists and 2.0 blocks over his last five. He looks like a steal for his owners.
Nov 13 - 10:54 PM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol scored 17 points on 8-of-17 shooting with 15 rebounds, four assists, one steal and four blocks in Monday's win over the Pistons.

Gasol is logging 35 minutes per game and blocking 2.4 shots per contest. If he can keep up that type of run when Taj Gibson's ankle injury has faded well into the past, perhaps he's going to be Tom Thibodeau's latest heavy-minute miracle.
Nov 10 - 11:34 PM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Paul Gasol dominated the Bucks on Wednesday during a 96-86 win with 22 points, 14 boards, one assist and one block in 36 minutes.

He is going to get a little extra run on the nights Joakim Noah (illness) sits out. Gasol hasn't struggled whatsoever with his new team and has certainly pleased his fantasy owners. Outside of some injury risk, he's not necessarily a sell-high guy.
Nov 5 - 11:48 PM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol logged a season-high 41 minutes on Tuesday, double-doubling with 16 points and 13 rebounds in a 98-90 win vs. the visiting Magic.

Gasol added two assists, two blocks and one steal, giving him a total of 12 blocks in Chicago's past three games. He saw extra action tonight with Joakim Noah (illness) unavailable, but it's been a seamless transition for Gasol in Chicago, and fantasy owners should be thrilled with the early returns.
Nov 4 - 11:40 PM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol looked great in 36 minutes against the Wolves with 20 points, six rebounds, two assists and four blocks on Saturday.

He has 10 blocks in his last two games and is fitting in quite nicely. Gasol will put up huge numbers even in a slower tempo, so keep him active in your lineup.
Nov 1 - 11:27 PM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol didn't play down the stretch in overtime against the Cavs on Friday in favor of Taj Gibson, finishing with 15 points, nine rebounds, three assists and six blocks in 37 minutes.

It's strange to see Pau get benched, but maybe he just hit his minute limit. Plus, Gibson played a ton down the stretch last season. Obviously, his fantasy owners couldn't care less after a massive line like this one. Gasol will crush his ADP as long as he is healthy.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol double-doubled in his Bulls debut with 21 points and 11 rebounds in 29 minutes, as Chicago cruised to an easy win vs. the Knicks.

Gasol made 7-of-11 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs, but failed to record any assists, steals or blocks. He served a predictably big role in the Bulls' offense, attempting more shots than any other starter, which is a key for his fantasy value. Owners who snagged him in the middle rounds should feel great about the decision.
