Gasol recorded five points (2-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt), four rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks across 21 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Rockets. Gasol hasn't reached the 10-point mark in any of his last nine games, and that obviously puts a hard cap on his upside, though he's been providing value in other areas of the game due to his secondary role in the Lakers' offensive scheme. Gasol is averaging 4.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.4 blocks over his last nine contests, and that kind of production will only make him viable as a streaming option in the deepest of leagues.
Gasol (eye) is starting the second half for the Lakers on Sunday, Bill Oram of The Athletic reports. Gasol left the game shortly before halftime, and he apparently received four stitches around his eye during his absence. However, he'll be available to take the court for the second half of Sunday's contest.
Gasol went to the locker room late in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Grizzlies with a laceration above his eye, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports. Gasol sustained a cut just outside of his left eye, and he went to the locker room just before halftime as a result. It's unclear whether he'll return for the second half.
Gasol had 12 points (4-4 FG, 3-3 3PT, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, eight assists and four blocks in Sunday's blowout win over the Timberwolves. It was easily the best game for Gasol in a Lakers uniform after the totaled just two points and 10 rebounds over his first two contests. The big man helped compensate for the absence of Anthony Davis (calf) and was noticeably more aggressive on the offensive end. When Davis returns, Gasol's impact could again be muted, but the veteran showed he can still be effective when given the opportunity.
Gasol has totaled just two points (0-1 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds and one assist through the Lakers' first two games. Gasol has started both contests, but he has not been remotely fantasy-relevant, outside of a decent showing on the glass (nine rebounds) against the Mavs on Christmas Day. Through 32 total minutes, Gasol has attempted only one shot. And in the opener against the Clippers, the veteran picked up five fouls in just 12 minutes. For now, Gasol can be safely ignored in most fantasy leagues.
