Pau Gasol played just 17 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Wolves, scoring three points with five rebounds, one assist and one turnover.
Incredibly, Gasol had the highest offensive rating in the NBA in his previous 10 games despite scoring in single digits in four of them. He was coming off a three-point dud on Saturday vs. the Suns, but his owners can expect him to bounce back on Thursday vs. the Nuggets -- Gasol scored 17 points with nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks vs. Denver on Jan. 5.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol made all nine of his attempts from the field for 22 points against the Lakers on Thursday, adding nine rebounds, six assists and one block in 26 minutes.

Revenge game? Gasol was coming in as cold as maybe ever with only 11 points combined in his previous two games. The last time he made all of his field goals was in 2010 when he made all 10 for 28 points as a Laker -- he's also gone 5-0 in his five perfect FGA games. The Spurs don't have a back-to-back until Jan. 23-24, but you can bet Gasol will sit in one of those. Until then, start him.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol said he's not expecting to be an All-Star this season.

"It’s not about me having the best individual year, or having individual awards," Gasol said. "It’s just team success. I didn’t come here with that type of mindset." Gasol's numbers are down across the board, but that was always the expectation playing next to Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge. The 36-year-old is returning top-70 value in standard leagues with averages of 11.9 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 blocks, but hopefully he isn't rested too much down the stretch.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol scored five points with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.

Davis Bertans actually took minutes from Pau tonight. The Hornets knew how to defend Pau in this game and he didn't make his first field goal until the second half. "They just pack the paint," said Gasol. The Spurs will manage the future Hall of Fame big man at some point, but he is still worth owning despite some sub-par outings.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol scored 17 points with nine rebound, four assists, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes on Thursday against the Nuggets.

Gasol bounced back nicely after a five-point game against the Raptors on Tuesday. The Spurs host the Hornets on Saturday, who are giving up 19.9 point and 15.1 rebounds to opposing centers. He did struggle against them earlier in the season, but could take advantage of the matchup this time around as the Hornets could be without Cody Zeller (concussion).
Jan 6 - 12:44 AM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol played just 19 minutes and hit 1-of-6 shots for five points, four rebounds, three assists and four blocks in Tuesday's easy win over the Raptors.

The Spurs dominated this game and Gregg Popovich likely decided this would be a good night to get Gasol some rest, as his shot wasn't falling and the game was out of hand. The Spurs don't have another back-to-back until Jan. 23-24, so owners have to hope that tonight's low minutes are good enough to keep Gasol on the court nightly until the back-to-backs hit in a few weeks.
Jan 3 - 11:31 PM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Gregg Popovich will not be resting any of his main guys for Tuesday's game against Toronto.

That means owners of Tony Parker, LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol can feel free to fire those guys up without hesitation for tonight's matchup against the second-best team out East.
Jan 3 - 3:14 PM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol returned to action on Sunday with 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting, one 3-pointer, seven rebounds, two assists, one block and zero turnovers in 24 minutes.

The rest appeared to do Gasol some good and he looked sharp during the Spurs' home victory, which improved their record to 25-6. He's turning in a disappointing fantasy season, with a career-low 12.1 points per game, but has still been a mid-round value in the past month. It would really help if Pau improved his 64.6 percent shooting at the FT line, the worst mark in his 16-year career.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol (rest), Manu Ginobili (rest) and Tony Parker (rest) are all expected to play Sunday vs. the Bulls.

All three vets sat out Friday night's win over the Blazers. Coach Gregg Popovich said the night off was necessary because the Spurs were in the middle of stretch which saw them play four games in 5 1/2 days." Dewayne Dedmon started in place of Gasol on Friday and played 27 minutes. He will get bumped back to the bench on Sunday. David Lee will also see his minutes curtailed with Pau in the lineup.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Coach Gregg Popovich said after Thursday's game that Pau Gasol (rest) will not play against the Blazers on Friday.

In Thursday's loss, Gasol hit 5-of-11 shots for 19 points, eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks vs. the Clippers. This was his highest scoring game since Dec. 2. He has had a good month of December, averaging 13.9 points, 9.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks. David Lee and Dewayne Dedmon should see more run on Friday with Gasol out.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol scored 10 points with 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks and two turnovers in 26 minutes against the Rockets on Tuesday.

For the first time ever, Gasol and LaMarcus Aldridge each had a double-double as teammates in the same game. Gasol's rebounding has been solid lately with five double-doubles this month -- LMA had his first of December 2016. His minutes have also held steady lately, but his fantasy owners will be on red alert with a road back-to-back set against the Clippers on Thursday and Blazers on Friday.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Paul Gasol hit 8-of-12 shots for 18 points, nine rebounds and three assists in Thursday night’s win against the Suns.

Gasol tied fellow teammate, Kawhi Leonard, for a team-high in points and finished one rebound shy of his fourth double-double in the month of December. He has picked up his production over the last couple of weeks, scoring at least 15 points in five of his last seven games. Fantasy owners who toughed it out with Gasol, are being rewarded now. He has played seven games in a row and at least 25 minutes in those contests, so it is only a matter of time before we get "Popped."

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol scored 17 points with 13 rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Celtics on Wednesday.

It was vintage Pau on the offensive end with some pretty jump shots against Al Horford to go with a season high on the glass. The 35 minutes are his second most on the season and he's played at least 25 minutes in each of his December games. As great as that sounds, Gasol's fantasy owners will be on red alert with a road game in a back-to-back set in Phoenix on Thursday. Gasol has a seventh-round value per game this season.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol scored 13 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday.

He got a standing ovation from the Chicago crowd in his first game back. The Spurs also lost their first game on the road this season and had a four-game winning streak get snapped. As for Gasol, he'll get some time off with only one game until Wednesday with the Nets coming to San Antonio on Saturday.
