  • Pau Gasol - C/F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pau Gasol made it official by confirming that he won’t be playing for Spain at the upcoming FIBA Basketball World Cup due to his foot fracture.

    “I would have loved playing with Spain, with my teammates. It has been always important playing for my National Team”, Gasol said. The big man added that he would love to end his international career by playing in the Olympics in Tokyo but after finishing the worst statistical season of his NBA career we have to wonder whether injuries will allow him to continue competing at the highest level.

    Spain’s head coach Sergio Scariolo confirmed that Pau Gasol will not play in the upcoming FIBA Basketball World Cup after suffering a stress fracture in his foot.

    Gasol, now 38, had the worst statistical season of his NBA career this year and it might be time for the Spaniard to consider retirement. Spain meanwhile, for the first time in a while, will play an International competition without both Juan Carlos Navarro and Pau Gasol, with the Hernangomez brothers taking over the torch from the Gasol brothers.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pau Gasol underwent surgery to repair a navicular stress fracture in his left foot and will miss the rest of the season.

    Gasol is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. He signed with the Bucks after being released by San Antonio but last appeared in a game on March 10 between DNPs and injuries. This is concerning to say the least, as the 38-year-old also missed 26 games earlier in the year with a stress fracture in his left foot.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pau Gasol suffered the worst season of his NBA career this year, averaging career-lows with 3.9 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.2 steals and 0.5 blocks on .447 from the field in just 12.0 mpg.

    Gasol last appeared in a game on March 10, and the left ankle injury that ended his season occurred during a run of DNPs so it’s tough to pinpoint exactly when he got hurt. Gasol also missed 26 games while with the Spurs because of a stress fracture in his left foot. The veteran is nearing the end and might have to settle for “veteran presence” roles should he choose to come back next year.

    Pau Gasol (left ankle soreness) is expected to miss a month of action.

    He's not fantasy relevant in any way at this point of the season so this update shouldn't shake up most fantasy teams.

    Pau Gasol (left ankle soreness) has been ruled out for Friday against the Heat.

    Gasol isn't in the rotation in Milwaukee and his utility to the team comes more in the locker room than on the court.

    Pau Gasol (left ankle soreness) is out for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

    The Bucks are taking a cautious appraoch with the veteran big man. When Gasol returns, he could see a few extra minutes off the bench with Nikola Mirotic expected to miss the next few weeks.

    Pau Gasol (left ankle soreness) will not play on Tuesday.

    Gasol has been largely out of the rotation anyway, but his latest absence is the result of an injury. He's not a fantasy option.

    Pau Gasol (undisclosed) is out for Tuesday's game against the Lakers.

    Gasol's absence doesn't move the fantasy needle too much. Ersan Ilyasova and D.J. WIlson should see decent roles off the bench with Gasol and Giannis out.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pau Gasol logged five minutes in his Bucks debut on Monday and grabbed two rebounds to go with an assist.

    Gasol's role will be very limited on a Bucks team that doesn't necessarily need him to play. He was brought on for his championship experience and is more of an insurance policy for a loaded Bucks team.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pau Gasol is active for Monday's game against the Suns.

    Pau has averaged just 12.2 minutes in the 27 games he has played this season. So, let's see how the Bucks use him before even considering adding him.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks have made the signing of Pau Gasol official.

    Gasol is likely around for veteran presence since most of the Bucks will be new to a deep playoff run. If he ends up logging big minutes it'll mean that something has gone wrong, though he does stand a better chance of at least being in the rotation here than he did in San Antonio.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol and the Spurs have agreed to a buyout which will allow Gasol to be playoffs-eligible for his next team.

    Gasol won’t have any fantasy relevance no matter where he signs but hopefully he’ll be able to latch on to a contender as he winds down his Hall of Fame career. Woj has also reported that he plans on signing with the Bucks so we might have an update shortly.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol picked up a DNP-CD vs. the Grizzlies Tuesday.

    Unless there's another injury, it appears safe to leave Pau on the waiver wire.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol refuted an ESPN Deportes story that he requested a trade, but added that, "I think people understand or can figure out that my situation is not what was expected for me."

    Gasol is averaging a career-low 12.5 minutes per game, though some of that may also be because of a 26-game absence due to a foot injury. He, like all other players, wants to play more but told reporters not to believe everything that's out there when they asked about his trade request and rumored hopes for a buyout. The Spurs have reportedly looked for ways to get Gasol's contract off the books as well, so it's a situation that hasn't worked out for either party this season. Gasol is not a fantasy option as things stand currently.
