    Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness/injury management) will miss Monday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Gasol returned to action in the Raptors' last game and played 16 minutes. The team is working him along slowly as they hope to have a healthy squad come playoff time. Serge Ibaka will see an increase in his value with Gasol sidelined. With the way the Raptors are currently managing Gasol's hamstring, it is possible that he will not be fantasy relevant for the remainder of the season.

    Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) returned to action on Sunday in a win over the Kings and put up three points in 16 minutes.

    Gasol was on a minutes restriction and was clearly shaking off the rust as he shot just 1-of-5 from the field, so it may take some time for him to jump back into the standard league radar. Serge Ibaka put up 15 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in 36 minutes, but he might take a hit as Gasol's minutes increase.

    Marc Gasol is ready to return from his left hamstring tightness and will be on a minutes limit on Sunday against the Kings.

    Gasol was right around the top-100 mark before succumbing to the injury, and he should still carry some standard league value once his workload ramps back up to usual levels. He's far away from being the early-round talent he once was, but he won't hurt you in any area, and he is a center that provides helpful boosts in 3-pointers and assists. With Gasol's return, Serge Ibaka is about to take a sizeable hit, but should still be able to maintain value in 12-team formats.

    Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game.

    Gasol will get a chance to test his hamstring pre-game and will be a GTD. It's a step in the right direction, signalling he's nearing a return, making him a solid pickup in all formats.

    Serge Ibaka (sore knee) will start on Thursday against the Warriors.

    As expected, Ibaka will hop back into the lineup and should have a strong game with Marc Gasol (hamstring) ruled out. He should be plugged into all fantasy lineups.

    Serge Ibaka (right knee soreness) has been upgraded to probable for Thursday's contest against the Warriors.

    It looks like Ibaka will be good to go for Thursday and should step back into middle-round value. On the flipside, Marc Gasol will not play as he continues to deal with hamstring issues that have held him out since January 28th.

    Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) is listed as questionable for Thursday vs. the Warriors.

    Gasol has not played since January 28th and the Raptors will likely take it easy on the veteran center. Gasol is a top-100 player on the season, but fantasy GMs should hold off on putting him in lineups until his minutes ramp up.

    Serge Ibaka (right knee soreness) is questionable ahead of Friday's contest vs. the Hornets.

    Ibaka has seen his role expand with Marc Gasol (hamstring) sidelined. He has played well but struggled mightily against the Bucks on Tuesday. If Ibaka misses time, Chris Boucher could have streaming appeal in the short-term while the Raptors will be forced to play small.

    Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) is making progress in his rehab but has no timetable for a return.

    Last week Nick Nurse speculated that Gasol would need 8-12 games before the playoffs to get back into shape, and it looks like the Raptors might take it as slow as possible with the veteran big man as long as his playoff preparedness isn't in jeopardy. Serge Ibaka and Chris Boucher will continue to hold it down.

    Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) will not play on Tuesday.

    Gasol last played on January 28 and the Raptors are not rushing him back. Serge Ibaka owners will continue to profit until Gasol returns.

    Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) will not play on Sunday against the Pacers.

    The Raptors are going to slow play it with their starting center given their depth and Gasol's importance in the postseason. Serge Ibaka remains an automatic play while Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Chris Boucher maintain deep-league relevance for as long as Big Spain is out. Norman Powell (left finger fracture) is also still out while Patrick McCaw (illness) is doubtful.

    Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) will be held out of Friday's game and possibly beyond as the Raptors exercise caution.

    It sounded like Gasol had a chance to return before the All-Star break but the Raptors are going to take no chances with such an important player, though they're obviously helped out by the fact that the team has continued to win without him. Serge Ibaka is looking at another game or two of elevated minutes while Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Chris Boucher get to hold onto relevance for a little while longer.

    Marc Gasol (left hamstring) is a possibility for Friday's game.

    Gasol has been out since late January and it sounded like the All-Star break was going to be the final stretch of rehab that he'd need in order to return. Even if his return doesn't come on Friday, it sure sounds like the big man will be back in action soon enough. Make sure Gasol isn't on your waiver wires.

    Serge Ibaka (illness) has been upgraded to available for Wednesday's tilt vs. the Nets.

    Ibaka will make his return after being a late scratch on Monday night. He should be in line for additional opportunity with Marc Gasol (hamstring) still sidelined. With Ibaka's return, Chris Boucher loses any streaming appeal that he may have otherwise had.

    Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) will not play on Wednesday.

    The Raptors will end up holding Gasol out through the break, which is the wise play. It sounds like they could've pushed him to return but there was no need to do so given the team's current success, and he could have a great shot at returning when the Raptors resume the regular season.
