Probable Shoulder soreness Open link
Gasol sat out Thursday's practice with shoulder soreness, but is expected to play on Friday vs. the Blazers. He'll be needed to play big minutes in the frontcourt as Joakim Noah (ankle) sat out practice and appears doubtful. We'll continue to update Gasol's status heading into Friday's game in case he suffers some sort of setback that would put his availability into question.

Active Left calf strain Open link
Gasol will play and start in Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets. He returned to the lineup on Monday after a three-game absence due to a left calf strain, and looked like his old self while playing 38 minutes. His being labeled probable appeared to be just another of many unnecessary "probable" designations from the Bulls this year as we've repeatedly seen with Jimmy Butler. Gasol will be fine and without any restrictions on Tuesday.

Probable Left calf strain Open link
Gasol is considered probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets. He returned to the lineup on Monday after a three-game absence due to a left calf strain, and looked like his old self while playing 38 minutes. This appears to be just another of many unnecessary "probable" designations from the Bulls this year as we've repeatedly seen with Jimmy Butler. Gasol should be fine and without any restrictions on Tuesday.

Active Left calf strain Open link
Gasol will return to the Bulls' starting lineup vs. the Jazz after missing the past three games due to a left calf strain. The Bulls will still be limited in the frontcourt despite Gasol's return, with Taj Gibson (ankle) already having been ruled out for at least the next two games, meaning that Nikola Mirotic will see the backup minutes in the frontcourt.
11/23/2014 7:45 PM
Probable Left calf strain Open link
Gasol participated in practice on Sunday and has been upgraded from questionable to probable for Monday's game vs. the Jazz. He said he's feeling much better and hasn't had a setback with his left calf strain, which has caused him to sit out the last three games. With Taj Gibson (ankle) already ruled out for at least two games, it'll be up to Gasol and Nikola Mirotic to handle the majority of the minutes at power forward in the interim.

Questionable Left calf strain Open link
Gasol will participate in Sunday's practice and is considered a game-time decision ahead of Monday's contest vs. the Jazz. He sounded confident about his chances of playing Monday though, adding that he's feeling much better and hasn't had a setback with calf strain. Gasol has sat out the last three games as he continues to deal with a left calf strain. "It’s something I still feel," he said on Thursday. "So we’re just trying to make sure we don’t have any major setbacks and this thing doesn’t prolong itself more than it has to ... It’s a muscle strain and strains usually take their time to heal and scar. Just trying to let it heal.". With Taj Gibson (ankle) already ruled out for at least two games, it'll be up to Gasol and Nikola Mirotic to handle the majority of the minutes at power forward in the interim.

Out Left calf strain Open link
Gasol will miss his third straight game on Friday vs. the Blazers as he continues to deal with a left calf strain. "It’s something I still feel," Gasol said on Thursday. "So we’re just trying to make sure we don’t have any major setbacks and this thing doesn’t prolong itself more than it has to ... It’s a muscle strain and strains usually take their time to heal and scar. Just trying to let it heal." Gasol said he's optimistic the injury isn't a long-term issue and that the Bulls' depth eases the pressure to return too quickly. Taj Gibson will draw another start at power forward with Pau sidelined, with Nikola Mirotic seeing additional run off the bench as well.

Out Left calf strain Open link
Gasol will miss his second straight game on Thursday vs. the Kings as he continues to deal with a left calf strain, an injury that caused him to sit out Monday after it worsened during shootaround. He said his calf, which he injured in last Saturday's loss to the Pacers, hasn't improved. "It’s something I still feel," Gasol said. "So we’re just trying to make sure we don’t have any major setbacks and this thing doesn’t prolong itself more than it has to. . . . It’s a muscle strain and strains usually take their time to heal and scar. Just trying to let it heal." Gasol said he's optimistic the injury isn't a long-term issue and that the Bulls' depth eases the pressure to return too quickly, which means it's certainly possible that he could miss additional time beyond Thursday. Taj Gibson will draw another start at power forward with Pau sidelined, with Nikola Mirotic seeing additional run off the bench as well.

Questionable Left calf strain Open link
Gasol did not participate in the Bulls' Wednesday practice and is considered questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Kings. Gasol was a late scratch on Monday after his left calf strain worsened during the team's shootaround. He had been considered probable, and all indications entering shootaround were that he'd be able to play. Gasol himself said that he's "hopeful" to play on Thursday, but his status will likely come down to a game-time decision. Gasol added that he's "taking it one day at a time and see how it feels." Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic will once again see the extra run if Gasol were to miss additional time.

Out Left calf strain Open link
Gasol is a late scratch on Monday after his left calf strain worsened in shootaround. He had been listed as probable, and all indications entering shootaround were that he'd be able to play, but he's now out and is considered day-to-day in advance of Thursday's game vs. the Kings. Gasol himself said that he's "hopeful" to play on Thursday. Taj Gibson will get the start in his place on Monday, with Nikola Mirotic to also extended run off the bench.
