C - TOR
Raptors' HC Nick Nurse said "I think C Marc Gasol and PG Kyle Lowry both look good."
Gasol has lost weight during the NBA shutdown and should be all systems go once the NBA season resumes. "He's a huge pillar on both ends. He's back there on defense directing traffic, protecting the rim, talking, getting guys through screens. He just does everything back there defensively and most of it's with his experience and his IQ," said Nurse. Gasol has been limited to 36 games this season due to a left hamstring injury. He will most likely enter a timeshare with center Serge Ibaka. The 35-year-old averaged 7.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.9 blocks this season.
Marc Gasol (hamstring) will miss the second game on the back-end of a back to back tonight against the Utah Jazz.
Gasol returned to action last night after missing 15 consecutive games with a left hamstring injury. He only played 15 minutes (providing a mere three points, two rebounds, and two assists) and the Raptors will continue to be cautious with their big man as his presence late in the season will be very important to making another run at the title. Gasol can be left on waivers in 12-team formats for the time being.
Marc Gasol (hamstring) won't play in Thursday's matchup against Golden State.
Gasol will miss his 15th consecutive game due to a hamstring injury. Serge Ibaka will continue to fill in at center and should see an expanded role with Gasol sidelined. The 35-year old is close to returning, but will need a few more days to recover from his hamstring injury. His next chance to play will be Sunday's tilt against the Kings.
Marc Gasol (hamstring) is now listed as doubtful to play on Thursday night against Golden State.
Gasol was originally listed as questionable earlier today, but is now listed as doubtful on the most recent NBA Injury Report. Gasol’s next chance to play will be on Sunday in Sacramento. Gasol hasn’t played in over a month, but keep an eye on him as a possible pick up as he works his way back from injury.
Marc Gasol (hamstring) is questionable for Thursday's game at Golden State.
Gasol has been out of action since January 28th due to a hamstring injury. It was reported earlier that Gasol had no timetable for a return. The fact he is considered questionable for Thursday's game means the veteran is getting closer to a return. Gasol will most likely face a minutes restriction once he eventually returns to game action. Fantasy owners should closely monitor his status closer to tip-off.
