Pau Gasol has swelling in his knee and won’t travel with the team when it visits the Raptors and Wizards this upcoming week.
He underwent an MRI and although there is nothing structurally wrong, there is considerable swelling. He is set to miss at least the next two games and could be out for much longer. It is devastating news for both the Bulls and his fantasy owners. Just as Jimmy Butler returns, the Bulls lose Gasol. Nikola Mirotic now has top-50 value and Bobby Portis suddenly could play an important role for his fantasy owners in this upcoming week. If Portis was dropped in your league, you may want to pick him up.
