Gasol had two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and six rebounds in 14 minutes during Saturday's 122-112 loss to the Thunder. Gasol drew a second straight start. However, he managed more points (seven) and boards (12) off the bench during last Wednesday's loss to the Grizzlies than he did in these last two starts combined. With plenty of competition for playing time, the 38-year-old veteran is an afterthought across most formats.
Gasol will start his second-straight game Saturday against the Thunder, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports. Gasol was held scoreless in 16 minutes during Friday's game against the Thunder, but will stay in the starting lineup for the second game of the back-to-back. In 13 games this year, the veteran center is averaging 5.4 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 15.9 minutes.
Gasol finished with three rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and one steal in 16 minutes during Thursday's 154-147 double overtime win over Thunder. Gasol didn't attempt a single shot attempt. He was originally ruled out of Thursday's matchup for rest purposes but ultimately took the court after all. Gasol is no longer the big-time scorer he was during his prime years, but he can still fill up a box score, albeit in a fairly limited role.
Gasol (rest) is available to play and will start Thursday against the Thunder, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports. Gasol was initially ruled out of Thursday's game but the team later announced that the veteran will be suited up for the outing. Gasol saw 20 minutes of action Wednesday, recording seven points and 12 rebounds.
Gasol (rest) will play Thursday against the Thunder after previously been listed as unavailable, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports. Head coach Gregg Popovich stated before the game that Gasol wouldn't play Thursday evening, but the Spurs have since announced that he is in fact available. San Antonio has been careful with Gasol's playing time to this point, but he'll join the first unit for the first time all season vs. Oklahoma City.
