    Pau Gasol will not play in the Blazers' two remaining preseason games and his status for opening night is in question.

    Gasol has been banged up for quite a while, and this isn't an encouraging start to his time with the Blazers. The main thing Gasol has in his favor this season is a very thin center depth chart in Portland. Deep-leaguers in need of blocks should keep an eye on him.

    Blazers big man Pau Gasol says that he is "hopeful" to be ready for the team's first regular season game.

    Gasol is coming off left foot surgery. He is firmly behind Hassan Whiteside and Zach Collins in the Blazers' rotation. Barring injuries, he is not likely to provide much value.

    Pau Gasol will join the Blazers on a one-year contract.

    Gasol is far from the All-Star who helped win back-to-back championships with the Lakers a decade ago. He will join the Blazers as a role-player who can play sparingly throughout games. Gasol is no longer fantasy relevant. However, he can be a great mentor to the other bigs in Portland as they try to get over the proverbial hump.

    The Detroit Pistons have expressed interest in Pau Gasol according to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press.

    Gasol recently celebrated his 39th birthday and is recovering from left foot surgery to repair a stress fracture. It's really tough to imagine him playing productive minutes in any scenario at this point in his career, but he still may have value to a team with his leadership and sheer size alone. The Pistons only have two backup big-men on the roster in Markieff Morris and Thon Maker, so they are likely to make a move to address that depth issue before training camp.

    Pau Gasol would like to continue his NBA career and says that he's recovering well from left foot surgery.

    Gasol underwent surgery in May to repair a navicular stress fracture in his left foot, after missing time with the Spurs earlier in the season because of a stress fracture in the same foot. Gasol is unlikely to be an on-court asset at this point in his career but a team should find him valuable on a minimum contract.

    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 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 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.
