  • DeMar DeRozan - G - San Antonio Spurs

    DeMar DeRozan was a late scratch for Friday’s game and Pau Gasol will start vs. the Wolves.

    DeRozan was Pop’d at the last minute for an undisclosed reason so we hope to have an update on that soon.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol will start against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Gasol has recently replaced Jakob Poeltl in the starting five with Rudy Gay (sprained left wrist) sidelined indefinitely. The veteran has a fun stat set but just doesn't play enough to deliver for the vast majority of owners, starting or otherwise.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol started over Jakob Poeltl on Thursday and scored zero points with three rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks.

    Gasol only logged 16 minutes and whether he starts or not doesn't really matter as he isn't a reliable option due to his age and health. Poeltl has potential if he can rack up 20 minutes a night, but it doesn't look like there's a clear pathway for that.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Contrary to previous reports, Pau Gasol will be active and available on Thursday.

    This is awkward. It was previously reported that Gasol would sit out the second half of the back to back, but it actually looks like he'll be active. We'll see how many minutes he gets, because if he can get up to 20-25 minutes, there's some potential for late-round value.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol (rest) is out for Thursday's game against the Thunder.

    Despite what was reported earlier, Gasol won't be available for this back-to-back as he recovers from injury. He's a strictly deep-league option because of his low volume, but Gasol is a consummate professional who could be somewhat useful given 20-25 minutes.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol (return from injury management) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Thunder.

    Gasol has only played in three of the past five games, so it is surprising to see him available on a back-to-back. He's really only a deeper league option right now. His strong game on Wednesday and a possible uptick in minutes could lead to standard value, but there's no need to jump the gun.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol came off the bench for 20 minutes, seven points and 12 rebounds in Wednesday's loss to the Grizzlies.

    Gasol had only appeared in three of the last five games and this was the most he's played since he hurt his foot in early November. It's worth pointing out that he outplayed Jakob Poeltl tonight, but unless you're in a deep league this isn't really actionable. We'll see if this performance gets Gasol back into the rotation full time.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol (left foot) returned to action in Monday's win over the Celtics.

    Gasol played five minutes and snagged five boards with no other stats. Jakob Poeltl started and saw 20 minutes of action, scoring two points on 1-of-4 shooting with six rebounds and five assists, but Rudy Gay (wrist) was out and his role is still unclear with Pau back. Neither Gasol nor Poeltl is worth owning right now and we'll let you know if either of them become relevant in reasonably sized formats.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol did not play in Saturday's game against the Clippers.

    Gasol is probably looking at a high teens workload and there won't be enough meat to the bone for most fantasy leagues. The big question is whether he will push Jakob Poeltl (three points, four boards, one block, 10 minutes) out of the rotation, as the locals have been happy with Poeltl and he's the one with fantasy upside, of course. Poeltl should remain on waiver wires until he can make a real move, however.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Paul Gasol (left foot) is available to play on Friday against the Nuggets.

    The eldest Gasol brother has only played nine games this season as his foot injury has kept him out since early November. He was only getting about 18 minutes a game to start the season so he won’t do enough to be rosterable in standard leagues though owners in deeper formats should keep an eye out.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol was spotted getting some shots up at Wednesday's practice.

    Gasol shed his walking boot about three weeks ago but the Spurs have never updated his timetable after announcing that he's dealing with a stress fracture in his left foot. Dante Cunningham and Davis Bertans are likely to move back to the bench when Gasol returns, and Jakob Poeltl needs to keep up his solid play of late in order to stay in the rotation. It's too early to consider Gasol as pickup in most leagues but this should at least put him on your radar.

    Pau Gasol (left foot soreness) is still not doing any contact work and is only shooting while standing still.

    Jakob Poeltl is the biggest beneficiary of Gasol's absence and it doesn't look like he'll be returning anytime soon. He's been out since early November but when he was playing he was actually pretty valuable, however he's not worth holding onto while he's on the shelf.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol (stress fracture) was seen without his walking boot before Friday's game.

    This is good news for Gasol (and the Spurs who need help everywhere) but he still doesn't have a timetable to return and most likely will be out until mid-late January at the earliest.

    Gregg Popovich revealed that Pau Gasol has a stress fracture in his left foot.

    Gasol will be out indefinitely and can be dropped in all but the deepest of formats. Dante Cunningham, Jakob Poeltl and Davis Bertans should all see more minutes but none of the three makes for a great add until you're in 16-team territory. Poeltl offers the highest upside of the bunch while Bertans can probably hold value as a 3-point specialist.

    Pau Gasol (left foot soreness) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game.

    Gasol's continued absence will keep Dante Cunningham in the starting lineup. There's no fantasy implications as a result of this news.
