    Marc Gasol finally got going for the Raptors in Wednesday's 109-99 win over the Magic, posting 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting, adding six rebounds, two 3s, one assist and one steal in 25 minutes of action.

    Gasol combined for 12 points over his last two games, so his 13 points tonight is a huge step in the right direction. We can chalk up the first two games of the restart to some rust. If he was sitting on your bench prior to tonight's game, you can consider it a sign that it's time to place him in your active lineups.

    Marc Gasol chipped in with six points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal in just 22 minutes during Monday's victory over the Heat.

    Gasol remains the starting center for the Raptors but his playing time is certainly far from ideal. He appears to have accepted his role within this lineup, leaving him as typically the fourth or fifth option on offense. He has battled his way through numerous injuries over the past couple of seasons and so the Raptors are going to play it safe leading into the playoffs.

    Marc Gasol was all over the place in nine minutes on Sunday against the Blazers, going for three points (3-of-7 FT) and four rebounds during a lackluster performance.

    It was a strange display from Gasol, who presumably was taking things slow with only nine minutes of action during his first scrimmage within the bubble. He's typically a reliable free-throw shooter and is at .722 percent for the season. He disappeared from the stat sheet beyond the rebounds and activity at the free-throw line and it will be difficult to trust the veteran who is more than likely focusing on the playoffs and just using these scrimmages and eight regular-season games as a ramp-up period.

    Marc Gasol was unable to return to early-round form in 2019-20, settling in with top-120/110 value (8/9-cat) as a secondary contributor while also battling injuries.

    Gasol missed 27 games between two hamstring injuries, but even when he was playing he was not a primary concern on offense. There was some thought that he'd absorb a good chunk of Kawhi Leonard's vacated usage, but he actually did even less as a scorer in his new distributor role. His passing and selflessness are vital ingredients to Toronto's attack, but Gasol isn't enough of an offensive hub for his brilliant play to turn into fantasy stats. He averaged a career-low with 7.6 points per game, though the rest of his complementary numbers were strong: 6.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.9 blocks and 1.4 3-pointers. Big Spain took just 6.6 shots per contest and it's going to be hard for him to climb too far into the top-100 unless that changes going forward. A fully healthy Gasol likely improves on this ranking, but without the scoring his upside is capped.

    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.
