Gasol finished with 33 points (13-19 FG, 7-9 FT), 13 rebounds, two steals, one block and one turnover in 38 minutes against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday.

He's been dealing with a sprained ankle, but was able to log big minutes in a game that his team needed to improve their playoff seed. He usually dishes out at least a couple of assists, but he was hot and decided to fill up the cup instead.

Gasol (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game, Grizzlies announcer Pete Pranica reports.

He played through the ankle ailment Monday, but Gasol saw just 21 minutes of action, as the Grizzlies try to go into the postseason as fresh and healthy as possible. If Gasol does not play in the regular season finale look for Kosta Koufos and Jon Leuer to see extra playing time.

Gasol (ankle) posted just six points, two rebounds, four assists, and one block in 21 minutes of action Monday against the Warriors.

Gasol has logged a total of just 31 minutes over the last two games and is averaging 4.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 3.0 assists during that span. He's a top-tier fantasy player, but it appears his minutes are being limited in order to rest for the NBA playoffs. As such, his value will take a hit over the last game.

Gasol (ankle) will play Monday against the Warriors, Rob Fischer of Sports 56 WHBQ in Memphis reports.

Gasol was listed as questionable after spraining his ankle Saturday against the Clippers. After testing it out in warmups, however, he'll take the court and start at his usual center spot. The Grizzlies will be without starting point guard Mike Conley for the third straight game.

Gasol (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game against the Warriors, Ronald Tillery of The Commercial Appeal reports.

Gasol sprained his ankle during Saturday's game against the Clippers, and while he tried to rejoin the contest, he ultimately missed the entire second half. The Grizzlies may still be in a tight battle for playoff seeding, but getting their star center healthy for the playoffs is far more important. If Gasol doesn't play in Monday's game, Kosta Koufos will likely get the start at center. Jeff Green (back) and Mike Conley (foot) are also listed as questionable, while Tony Allen (hamstring) has been ruled out.

Gasol's X-rays taken on his injured ankle came back negative, ESPN.com reports.

Gasol was forced to leave the game Friday against the Clippers, and was later seen in a walking boot that night. Even though the ankle isn't broken, it still could be a severe sprain. Consider Gasol doubtful for the Grizzlies' upcoming game against the Warriors on Monday, since the big man's health is more important than the team's playoff seed.

Gasol sprained his ankle in the Grizzlies game Saturday night against the Clippers, and did not return, NBA.com reports.

Gasol suffered the injury in the first quarter of the game, and tried to return after getting the ankle tapped, but ultimately sat out the remainder of the game.

Gasol tweaked his left ankle in Saturday's game and will return, the Sports 56 WHBQ's Rob Fischer reports.

He returned from the locker room in the first half and sat on the bench to get his ankle re-taped. If the injury is bothers him at all following Saturday's game, it would not be surprising for the Grizzlies to rest him in advance of the playoffs, but there's also a chance he could just continue to play through it.
