Pau Gasol (wrist) and Manu Ginobili (thigh) have been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Cavs.
Advice: Gasol's wrist has been bothering him over the past few games, so he'll miss the first game of San Antonio's back-to-back set, and we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game in Memphis. With Gasol unavailable, it'll likely be either Davis Bertans or Joffrey Lauvergne entering the starting lineup with LaMarcus Aldridge being forced into heavy minutes. Ginobili's absence will translate to more run for Brandon Paul and Bryn Forbes.
Pau Gasol scored 14 points Sunday, going 6 of 8 from the field, as the San Antonio Spurs fell to the Indiana Pacers 94-86. Gasol grabbed nine rebounds and dished out four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -2 in his 31:04 on the floor. He added three blocks.
Gasol won't play Tuesday against the Cavaliers due to a sprained right wrist.

Pau Gasol scored 15 points Friday on 6-of-11 shooting as the San Antonio Spurs fell to the Toronto Raptors 86-83. Gasol pulled down nine rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -9 in his 34:04 of playing time. He tacked on one steal.
Advice: Gasol has played better in his last two games, totaling 28 points and 21 rebounds.
Pau Gasol (right wrist sprain) will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nets.
Advice: The 37-year-old will again be fighting through the pain tonight, and at this point, it doesn't seem like the wrist issue will require him to spend any time on the sidelines. Tony Parker, Danny Green, Kyle Anderson and LaMarcus Aldridge will join him in the starting unit.
Gasol will play in Wednesday's visit to Brooklyn after being questionable due to a sprained right wrist.

Pau Gasol scored 13 points Wednesday, going 5 of 8 from the field, as the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Brooklyn Nets 100-95. Gasol pulled down 12 rebounds and had seven assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -4 in his 29:34 of playing time. Gasol went 1 of 1 from behind the arc.
Advice: Gasol notched his ninth double-double of the season and fell three assists shy of a triple-double. He'll certainly be counted on to carry a bigger load now that Kawhi Leonard is out indefinitely.
Pau Gasol scored 13 points with 12 rebounds, seven assists and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday.
Advice: While he may not benefit as much as others, Gasol should see an uptick in production while Kawhi Leonard (quad) is out. Perhaps his November averages serve as a fair expectation at 12.1 points, 7.9 boards, 3.4 diems, 1.1 blocks and 1.4 treys. He could start flirting with top-60 value again.
Pau Gasol (right wrist sprain) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Brooklyn.
Advice: Gasol told reporters on Monday that the nagging injury is hampering him. "I can't really bend it much," Gasol said. "It's been building up. I jammed it and it's been a little swollen." The Spurs are notoriously cautious with their injured players, so it certainly wouldn't be surprised if Gasol was sidelined on Wednesday. If Gasol is ruled out, Davis Bertans and Joffrey Lauvergne would likely pick up most of his minutes. Bertans would be the more attractive streaming option and could be worth a look as a risky DFS punt.
