Marc Gasol (illness) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.
Advice: He was back at practice on Tuesday, so barring a setback, he should be able to make it back to the court for Wednesday's game, which would push Deyonta Davis back to the bench. Check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.

Advice: Gasol sat out Monday in Brooklyn and was also rested March 10 in Dallas.
Marc Gasol (<i>illness</i>) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Nets.
Advice: If the Grizzlies were battling for a playoff spot you can bet that Gasol would have gutted it out, but there's just zero incentive for him to play at less than 100% at this point. Deyonta Davis could be looking at a start tonight, and we should also see plenty of small ball lineups with guys like JaMychal Green and Jarell Martin running the five-spot; Tyreke Evans will also be very busy on offense. The Grizzlies have a Wednesday-Thursday back-to-back set coming up, and for now, we'll be considering Gasol questionable for Wednesday's game.

Advice: The 19-game losing streak is over and Gasol was relieved. After the game on the Grizzlies broadcast, Gasol said it was fun to play as a team and it was great to get a win for the fans. He's been vocal about being anti-tank, but of course it's not his call. The Grizzlies have a back-to-back set coming up on Mar. 21-22, so Gasol is probably sitting for one of those.

Advice: Gasol took his time to get going in this one, spending a majority of the game serving as a facilitator rather than a shot creator, but he took over late, rocking a 35.4 usage rate through the fourth quarter of action while scoring 10 of his 21 points. He did tweak his left ankle midway through the fourth, but he played through it and didn’t seem at all limited, so he should be good to go on Saturday against the Nuggets.

Advice: You can see the frustration all over his face and he even heaved up a 3-pointer from nearly halfcourt early in the shot clock. However, he played well for the most part, hitting 8-of-17 shots with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block. The Grizzlies have made it painfully obvious that they are tanking, so Gasol's owners will have to constantly be on the lookout for DNPs.
