Gasol (hamstring) will not play Monday in Utah. The big man made his return to action Sunday against the Kings, but he'll be held out on the second night of a back-to-back set. With four full days off following Monday's game, expect Gasol to be back in uniform for Saturday's home date with the Pistons.
Gasol (hamstring) played 16 minutes off the bench Sunday in the Raptors' 118-113 win over the Kings, finishing with three points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists. Predictably, Gasol filled only a minimal role for Toronto in his return from a 15-game absence due to the same hamstring issue that had already cost him 12 games from late December through mid-January. Though Gasol came off the bench for the first time all season, he could eventually replace Serge Ibaka on the top unit once he ramps up a bit. Expect Gasol to face a similar playing-time restriction in the second half of the back-to-back set Monday in Utah; he could also sit out entirely.
Gasol (hamstring) will be available off the bench Sunday against the Kings, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports. It'll be the first action for Gasol since Jan. 28, but he'll face an unspecified minutes restriction, so he's best avoided in DFS contests. Expect Serge Ibaka to remain the starter at center for the time being.
Gasol (hamstring) has a chance to play in Sunday's game against Sacramento, Eric Smith of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports. The veteran center's embedded in a lengthy absence that stems from a strained left hamstring. He is officially questionable for Sunday, though his availability could well hinge on his ability to participate in pregame warmups. Look for more details to come out ahead of tipoff.
Gasol (hamstring) won't play in Thursday's matchup against Golden Star, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports. As anticipated, Gasol will miss a 15th straight contest. Serge Ibaka is back and will likely see a massive role in Thursday's game against the Warriors. The veteran's next opportunity to take the floor looms Sunday in Sacramento.
