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. Jan 30 - 1:38 AM

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

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.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol was outstanding against the Spurs during an easy 104-81 win on Thursday, making 5-of-6 from the field for 12 points with 17 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 31 minutes.

He was voted in as the starting center for the Eastern Conference All-Star Team. Gasol played 35 minutes per game in November, December and January this season, but his stats have exploded in 2015. In his previous 11 2015 games, he averaged 21.6 points, 12.3 boards, 2.5 assists, 2.3 blocks and 0.3 steals on 50.0 percent from the field. He obviously earned his All-Star spot.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol, who has put up some ridiculous numbers in the past week, cooled off Wednesday for 13 points and eight rebounds on 4-of-11 shooting.

He had 28 points and 14 rebounds on Monday and a career-high 46 points and 18 boards on Saturday against the Bucks. He was due for a letdown and we got it tonight. Additionally, the Bulls have dropped two straight games and lost four of their last five, so look for Gasol to keep pushing as hard as he can in hopes of getting his team some wins.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol was critical of the Bulls' recent play after Monday's loss to the Magic.

"I am upset," Gasol said after losing to the 14-27 Magic. "We've given away too many home games against teams that we shouldn't, and that has to stop." Gasol did his part in scoring 28 points to go with 10 rebounds, one steal, and two blocks Monday night and is now averaging 25.2 points, 13.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.2 blocks over his last five games. Barring an unforeseen injury, Gasol's fantasy owners can sit back and enjoy the fact that they have a top 15 player on their hands.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol scored 28 points on 10-of-16 shooting with 14 rebounds, one steal, two blocks and 8-of-10 makes from the foul line in Monday's home loss to the Magic.

Gasol got highlight-jammed on again and given his block rate it's probably going to happen a few more times. He's returning late-first, early-second round value in 9- and 8-cat leagues, respectively.
Jan 13 - 12:16 AM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol scored a career-high 46 points against the Bucks on Saturday with 18 rebounds, three assists, one steal and three turnovers.

He made 17-of-30 from the field and 12-of-13 from the line in 39 minutes. Gasol has been posting first-round value on the season and there is nothing that will slow him down except an injury. Plus, Derrick Rose missing time will also help his usage rate. The Bulls also have a great head-to-head schedule in fantasy leagues, so don't sell high.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol kept his foot on the gas pedal in the Bulls' 114-105 win over the Rockets on Monday, scoring 27 points on 10-of-16 shooting (7-of-7 FTs) with 14 rebounds, three assists and two blocks.

Gasol looks like a brand new player and he'll be a common component on many winning fantasy squads this year.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol was everywhere against the Celtics during a 109-104 win on Saturday with 29 points, 16 rebounds, two assists, one steal, five blocks and one 3-pointer.

Only Anthony Davis has posted a 29-point, 16-board, five-block game in the past two seasons. Gasol is en fuego right now and had a career-high nine blocks on Thursday and there has been no drop-off whatsoever from his Lakers days. If you drafted him, you probably stole him big time.
Jan 4 - 12:25 AM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol will start on Saturday vs. the Celtics as expected.

He took the day off at practice on Friday in order to rest, so he should be fresh for Saturday's contest. Gasol blocked nine shots in his last outing, so he is obviously a must-start option in all leagues.
Jan 3 - 7:28 PM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol (rest) and Taj Gibson (ankle) are probable for Saturday's game vs. the Celtics.

Gasol got the day off at practice on Friday, but all signs point to him playing against the Celtics. However, this is the Bulls we are talking about so owners will still need to check back prior to tip-off before activating Gasol or Gibson. If either player is forced to sit, Nikola Mirotic will be worth a look in most leagues.
Jan 3 - 12:34 PM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol (rest) did not practice on Friday.

He earned a day off. Gasol blocked a career-high nine shots on Thursday and there's no sign of him missing Saturday's game against the Celtics. His owners can pencil him in there for the home game.
Jan 2 - 2:43 PM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol blocked a career-high nine shots against the Nuggets on Thursday with 17 points, nine rebounds and four assists.

He blocked Timofey Mozgov and J.J. Hickson three times each and leapfrogged Tim Duncan as the No. 4 man in blocks per game this season. Gasol is shooting the ball well this season at 47.2 percent from the field and 80.9 percent from the line while doing a little bit of everything -- he even has two treys. Not bad for a 13-year vet.
Jan 1 - 11:01 PM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

Pau Gasol scored 23 points with 13 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.

He has been on a roll over his last five, averaging 16.2 points, 9.8 boards, 2.8 assists and 2.6 blocks on 50.0 percent from the field and 92.0 percent from the line. Gasol was in a slump earlier this month, but he's busted out and has been second-round guy in standard fantasy leagues this season.
