Gasol posted 18 points (6-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 33 minutes in Sunday's 110-92 loss to the Thunder. Gasol's scoring total led the Grizzlies on a night when they generated a mediocre 39.0 percent success rate from the field. The veteran big man continues to shoulder a heavy offensive load on a team largely devoid of consistent scorers, although Tyreke Evans' return after sitting out several games prior to the trade deadline should give him a significant helping hand. Conversely, the guard's reentry into the starting five could also cause Gasol's overall production to take a bit of a hit, but he still projects as a rock-solid source of scoring, rebounding and blocks for balance of the campaign.
Gasol had 20 points (7-20 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-7 FT), six rebounds, five assists, three blocks and one steal in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 92-88 loss to the Jazz. Gasol had a nice game after a dud previously, scoring 20 points and adding three blocked shots. He has been steady over the last couple of weeks, as per usual, but has seen a dip in his efficiency. For the past two weeks, he is shooting at just 40 percent from the field, lower even still when you consider he plays close to the basket. While he is taking more three-point attempts than the average center, this is still decidedly lower than last seasons 46 percent.
Gasol managed eight points (3-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, and two assists in 19 minutes during Tuesday's 108-82 loss to the Hawks. Gasol saw a season-low 19 minutes while committing three turnovers and three fouls. The Grizzlies are back in action against the Jazz on Wednesday for the second night of this back-to-back set, and fantasy owners should remain patient rather than making any rash decisions with Gasol. Unless news of an injury surfaces or the team decides to shut him down as a precaution, the former Defensive Player of the Year will remain a solid fantasy option who contributes in every statistical category.
Gasol posted 19 points (6-21 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists and one steal across 33 minutes during Thursday's 104-102 loss to the Pistons. Gasol struggled from downtown as he attempted to draw Andre Drummond away from the basket, dragging his field goal percentage down to a paltry 29 percent on the night. He still led the team in scoring and rebounding, however, as the options around him continue to dwindle. Gasol could be in line for a huge workload down the stretch if and when Tyreke Evans is dealt, but this could come at the expense of his efficiency.
Gasol tallied 23 points (9-18 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, six assists and one steal across 36 minutes in Wednesday's 105-101 loss to the Pacers. Two games after posting a triple-double, Gasol flirted with another one yet again Wednesday night as he is truly the only weapon the team has on the roster right now. He will continue to be a consistent double-double machine for the Grizzlies, barring they don't trade him away or decide to experiment with the other talent they have on the roster.
