Marc Gasol 2020-2021 Outlook


Recommended Posts

Marc Gasol got 12-pts 7 rebs 8 ast 4blks last game (AD is sitting of course) . He's starting for LA but how hard is it for him to put up 9pts, 6 rebs, 4ast, 1blk, 1, trey ros in limited mins?  He could be an "Ingles" with a block. 

Keeping an eye on him. His IQ is great and he's got a lot of weapons to chose from to get his dimes. He did say he would crash the boards more for this team. And apart from AD he's the 2nd best post defender they've got.

He was matched up against Naz Reid, a good line was to be expected. He took one shot the first two games. And the Lakers will monitor his minutes all season to keep him healthy for the playoffs especially when they have a talented big like Montrezl behind him. Good game but doesn't move the needle for me

Giving him a chance. He's just figuring out his new team. Could be a good glue guy at the end of your bench. Not saying run and pick him up but keep an eye out. His game is fantasy friendly

It is fantasy friendly but he isn't gonna play enough minutes most nights to make an impact on the stat sheet.

AD was out. Gasol, Lebron, AD all on the court at the same time just simply doesn't work for Gasol's fantasy chances. 

Gasol would work better in the 2nd team but he's not been getting minutes there so far. Maybe eventually Kuzma starts, also Markieff crowds the court too. Plus Harrell, just too many bigs to make it work for Gasol this year.

His PT is not affected by AD’s and he’s not going start averaging 30 minutes going forward.
 

He played 20 minutes in each of the OT games vs OKC that AD missed. He played 28 mins in the game vs the Grizzlies, in which AD played 35 min. Then, he played 18 min against the Nuggets, and AD only played 15 mins that game believe leaving with an injury. 
 

Gasol will play 30 min in games where the Lakers need size (he got 30 minutes against KAT and J Val).

Marc Gasol surprisingly has been the better 3s and blocks specialist over Brook Lopez in the past 2 weeks.

Better 3s, better blocks, and better assists. He's doing this under 30 min.. Would this keep up when AD returns?

Probably not but AD won't be back for a bit. The % of 3s attempted will remain though (62% of his total shots) which is the most in his career. All 11 of his shots in the past 2 games have been from 3.
