Gasol (rest) will remain out for Wednesday's season finale against the Thunder. The Grizzlies have nothing to play for, so Gasol will sit out a second straight game. That officially ends his 10th season in the NBA and he'll finish 73 games with averages of 17.2 points, 8.1 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.4 blocks across 33.0 minutes. Gasol will be back in Memphis ahead of the 2018-19 season and is slated to make $24.1 million. Deyonta Davis started in his place Monday, posting 10 points, five rebounds and a block across 32 minutes.
Gasol has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Timberwolves for rest. Gasol played 35 minutes in the first night of the Grizzlies' current back-to-back set Sunday, so he'll sit out Monday's contest with nothing left to play for. At this point, Gasol is expected to return ahead of Wednesday's season finale against the Thunder, though it will still be worth it to check on his status come game day. With Gasol out, as well as JaMychal Green (knee), Deyonta Davis and Ivan Rab should see big minutes in the frontcourt.
Gasol (rest) is off the injury report for Sunday's game against the Pistons. Gasol was given Friday's game against the Kings off for rest, prompting the team to start Ivan Rabb at center. With Gasol back in the fold Sunday, he'll presumably return to his usual place in the starting five. Over his past four appearances, the veteran is averaging 10.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.3 steals in 21.0 minutes.
Gasol will not play during Friday's contest against the Kings due to rest purposes. With the Grizzlies having one of the worst records in the Association with just four games left on their schedule, the team will opt to rest their veteran big man. With him out of the picture Friday, Deyonta Davis and Ivan Rabb are all candidates to spend extra time in the frontcourt.
Gasol finished with zero points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 123-95 loss to the Pelicans. Gasol finished with as many turnovers as assists, spending most of the blowout loss glued to the bench. With the Grizzlies focusing on the future and developing the youth, Gasol's role has been reduced dramatically of late, and that trend figures to continue during the final four-game stretch.
