Pau Gasol scored a game-high 27 points against the Pistons on Saturday with 10 boards, one assist and one 3-pointer on 10-of-16 from the field.

It's tied for his highest scoring output since Jan. 10 and he bounced back nicely from an 11-point game from Friday. Gasol has been coasting along as a first-round value all season and continues to be a huge steal for his owners. He might rest a game, but the Bulls don't have any road games on a back-to-back set until Apr. 8.

Pau Gasol racked up yet another double-double during Sunday's loss to the Spurs, putting up 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting, with 15 rebounds, two blocks and two turnovers through 33 minutes of action.

Gasol leads the league in double-doubles with 41 on the season, and he has been an absolute monster this year. He’s been completely revitalized in Chicago after having a down year with the Lakers last season, and so far he's only missed five games this year. He shows no signs of slowing down, and congratulations are in order if you snagged him during the later rounds on draft day.

Pau Gasol had a productive game against the Thunder on Thursday during a thrilling 108-105 win, scoring 21 points with 12 boards, two assists and one turnover.

He had his 40th double-double for the season, which leads the league (DeMarcus Cousins and Nikola Vucevic are second with 35 each). Gasol also had the pass of the night to set up E'Twaun Moore for the game-winning trey off a gorgeous touch pass. Anthony Davis is the only big man with more fantasy value than Gasol right now.

Pau Gasol (illness) is probable for Tuesday against the Wizards.

He was questionable for Sunday, but didn't play well with four points and 15 boards. Gasol is basically a lock to play. If he's somehow out, the Bulls might hold an open tryout at the United Center tomorrow. Kidding aside, start Gasol in weekly leagues.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol was cleared limited by his illness during Sunday's loss to the Clippers, scoring just four points on 2-of-13 shooting, to go with 15 rebounds and four assists through 33 minutes of action.

Tom Thibodeau acknowledged after the game that Gasol is still very sick, and he gave him credit for going out there and giving it everything he had. The Bulls don't play again until Tuesday, so hopefully that gives him enough time to fully recover from his illness. If Jimmy Butler (elbow) is unable to go on Tuesday, Gasol is going to be busy on offense.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol (illness) is good to go for Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.

He missed just one game due to illness, but with Taj Gibson sidelined with an ankle injury, Gasol should see his normal allotment of minutes vs. the Clippers. Even if he isn't quite 100 percent, Gasol has been an animal this season and is obviously a must-start option in all leagues.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol (illness) is ready to play against the Clippers on Sunday.

He missed Friday due to an illness, but he should be right back up there with his normal playing time. The Bulls used a combination of Nazr Mohammad and a lot of small-ball lineups on Friday, so there wasn't a great pickup after Taj Gibson (ankle) went down. Gasol owners should have him back in their lineups.

Updating a previous report, Pau Gasol (illness) has officially been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

We've seen this movie before, and it will Taj Gibson at the starting power forward spot with Nikola Mirotic seeing extended minutes off the bench, and both guys figure to be quality plug-and-play options in daily leagues. The Bulls face the Clippers on Sunday, and we'll be considering Gasol questionable for that one. Stay tuned.

Pau Gasol is sick and was unable to complete Friday morning's shootaround.

We'll be considering Gasol questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves, and if he's unable to go, Taj Gibson would likely slide into the starting lineup with Nikola Mirotic seeing extended minutes off the bench. Both Gibson and Mirotic would make for quality plug-and-play options in daily leagues if Gasol is indeed ruled out for Friday's game. Stay tuned.
