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.

Gasol has been the No. 4 player in fantasy leagues over his previous 10, averaging 17.8 points, 13.8 boards and 2.3 blocks on 51.8 percent from the field. He's been one of the major steals of fantasy drafts and is only getting better as the year has gone on.

Pau Gasol (thigh contusion) will play against the Suns on Saturday.

He should start and it shouldn't affect his playing time. Alex Len has been tremendous on the defensive side, so it should be an entertaining battle. Gasol needs to be in all lineups in what should be a more up-tempo game than usual.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol (thigh contusion) is listed as probable and is expected to play against the Suns on Saturday.

Usually, a probable tag on an injury report means a guy is almost a lock, but the Bulls are one of a few teams to rule out a probable guy, so we wouldn't totally dismiss this news on a new injury. To be clear, we still think he'll play.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

The Bulls cruised to a 104-86 win vs. the Kings on Tuesday, led by Pau Gasol's 26 points (11-of-15 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), 16 rebounds and three assists.

Gasol has 13 straight double-doubles which is two shy of Michael Jordan's franchise record set in 1988-89. He didn't have any defensive stats tonight but he also turned the ball over just once in 38 minutes of action, and tonight's huge performance was the latest reminder why he's earned the starting center job for the Eastern All-Star team.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol double-doubled before halftime on Sunday and finished a razor-thin victory in Orlando with 25 points, 15 boards, four assists one steal and one block.

The 34-year-old Gasol has blown away expectations this season, averaging a lofty 18.1 points, 12.0 rebounds and 2.2 blocks with just three DNPs all season. He'll start the All-Star game for the East but should still be rested and ready for a strong push toward the playoffs, so just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Pau Gasol dominated the Pelicans on Saturday during an easy 107-72 win, scoring 20 points with 15 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one 3-pointer. in 28 minutes.

Gasol is a stud. His numbers have not dropped whatsoever since the return of Joakim Noah, averaging 15.0 points, 15.0 boards, 4.3 assists and 2.7 blocks in his previous six — all of those are up except for points. Gasol is on track to be a top-20 player this season and just needs to avoid an injury.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol returned to the Staples Center to face the Lakers in a double-overtime 123-118 loss on Thursday, scoring 20 points with 10 rebounds, six assists and four blocks in 44 minutes.

He received a standing ovation from his former home crowd and the fans even received a Pau Gasol T-shirt. It's pretty clear Gasol made the right move heading to Chicago and he's been one of the best big men in the NBA in his age-34 season. There's no need to sell high unless you can trade him for a first-round asset.

The Bulls won a stunning overtime game in Golden State on Tuesday, paced by Pau Gasol's 18 points, 16 rebounds, eight assists and four blocks.

Gasol made 7-of-12 field goals and 4-of-4 free throws and he continues to shatter preseason expectations. The 34-year-old veteran has missed only three games this season (in November) despite averaging 34.9 minutes per game, and fantasy owners have to be thrilled with his production under Tom Thibodeau's thumb.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol had yet another fantastic game on Sunday, scoring 13 points to go with 17 rebounds, three assists, four blocks, and two turnovers, but it wasn't enough as the Bulls fell to the Heat.

Gasol continues to put up glorious fantasy lines, and he was rightfully voted in as the starting center for the Eastern Conference All-Star Team. He looks completely revitalized in Chicago, and his down-year in LA last season is now a distant memory. Keep rolling him out there, and pat yourself on the back if you drafted him late.
