Gasol managed to play for 33 minutes against the Clippers on Sunday despite the fact that he's still battling an illness, Nick Friedell of ESPN reports. He finished with four points (2-13 FG), 15 rebounds, and four assists.
Gasol should be considered day-to-day moving forward in the event that his illness gets worse ahead of Tuesday's game against the Wizards. It would be somewhat surprising if he didn't take the court, although coach Tom Thibodeau said Gasol is still very sick and doesn't seem to be at full strength.

Gasol kept the double-double train chugging along Sunday, posting his 12th straight with 25 points (10-16 FG, 5-6 FT), 15 rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block in 37 minutes against the Magic.
Gasol leads the league with 33 double-doubles, and the fact that he's having one of the best statistical seasons of his career at 34 years old is a criticism of how Gasol was being used in his final seasons with the Lakers. Over his last five games, Gasol has averaged 36 minutes played, an indication that coach Tom Thibodeau doesn't seem to have any qualms about continuing to give Gasol big minutes the rest of the season. While some would suggest that Gasol's age will catch up to him as the season progresses, he only missed three games so far this season, and those all came together as a result of a calf injury, one he quickly returned from.

Gasol did much of his damage after Anthony Davis left with a shoulder injury. The last time those two squared off, Davis blocked six shots and Gasol was limited to 3-of-9 shooting.
