Active Strained left hamstring Open link
Coach Tom Thibodeau confirmed that Gasol will play in Game 6 vs. the Cavs on Thursday, as expected. "Pau's good ... he's fine," Thibodeau added. Gasol had said on Wednesday that he has made good progress in his recovery from a strained left hamstring with "no residual pain" and would "be out there" for Thursday's game. He wasn't sure how many minutes he'd be able to play, but wants to see how his hamstring reacts during the game. Gasol has missed the last two games due to the injury, which he suffered during Friday's Game 3 win. He'll likely be on a minutes restriction in his return, but his presence will take back minutes in the frontcourt from Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic.

Gasol has been ruled out for Game 5 vs. the Cavs on Tuesday, as expected, as he continues to deal with a strained left hamstring. Coach Tom Thibodeau said he's improving "a little bit" but has only been able to do limited rehab work over the past few days. Gasol had officially been called a game-time decision, but all indications were that he would not play given how little he was able to do during morning shootaround. He estimates that he's at around 40 percent and has yet to run at full speed to attempt anything involving a change of direction. "There’s still some steps that I need to get done in the next 48 hours in order to be able to play an NBA game," said Gasol. We'll continue to update his status as information allows, and Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic will see the additional run for as long as Gasol remains sidelined.

Doubtful Strained left hamstring Open link
Indications from morning shootaround are that Gasol remains unlikely to play in Game 5 vs. the Cavs on Tuesday due to his strained left hamstring, although he's officially being called a game-time decision. "He’s feeling a little better, but he has to go through shootaround and feel good enough, warm up [Tuesday night] and see where he is," said coach Tom Thibodeau. "Pau knows his body well. He’s been around a long time. So just trust how he feels." We'll continue to update Gasol's status as information allows, and it would be Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic continuing to see extended run in the likely event that he has to miss further time.

Doubtful Strained left hamstring Open link
Gasol didn't practice on Monday, instead receiving treatment for his strained left hamstring, and is not expected to play in Game 5 vs. the Cavs on Tuesday. Coach Tom Thibodeau said that while he is feeling a little better, he wasn't able to do anything at practice besides rehab work. "[He's feeling] a little better today," Thibodeau said on Monday. "Day-to-day. I don't know [about his availability]." We'll continue to update Gasol's status as needed, and it would be Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic continuing to see extended run in the likely event that he has to miss further time.

Coach Tom Thibodeau said he is "still sore" and remains day-to-day, with his status uncertain for Game 5 on Tuesday as he has yet to do any on-court activity. Gasol felt his hamstring tighten up during halftime of Friday's win, and tried to give it a go in the second half but succumbed.

It's unclear how he suffered the injury as there hasn't been any more specifics provided, but he checked out midway through the third quarter. Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic will see extended run in the frontcourt the rest of the way in Gasol's absence.
3/2/2015 4:45 PM
Probable Illness Open link
Gasol is officially listed as probable in advance of Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards due to illness. He sat out of Friday's win and then was clearly still feeling its effects when he returned on Sunday, as he labored through a relatively ineffective 33 minutes (2-13 FG). Gasol will be needed to play a massive role for the Bulls going forward, with Derrick Rose (knee) and Jimmy Butler (elbow) suffering long-term injuries and Taj Gibson (ankle) sidelined for at least another week.
3/1/2015 10:17 AM
Active Illness Open link
Gasol will be active and in the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Clippers, as expected, after sitting out Friday's win due to illness. Coach Tom Thibodeau said Saturday that he was feeling much better and "will be fine" for Sunday. Gasol will return to a shorthanded Bulls frontcourt, with Taj Gibson ruled out due to his left ankle injury.

Probable Illness Open link
Coach Tom Thibodeau said after Friday's win that he expects Gasol to be back in the lineup for Sunday's contest vs. the Clippers, following a one-game absence due to illness. Gasol will likely return to a shorthanded frontcourt, with Taj Gibson suffering a sprained left ankle while starting in his place on Friday.
2/27/2015 10:59 AM
Out Illness Open link
Gasol has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Wolves after leaving morning shootaround due to illness. Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic will see extended run in the frontcourt for the Bulls in his place.
2/27/2015 10:14 AM
Questionable Illness Open link
Gasol left morning shootaround due to illness, and should be considered questionable for Friday's game vs. the Wolves. We'll continue to update his status as needed, but it would be Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic seeing extended run in the frontcourt should he have to miss any time.
12/11/2014 1:48 PM
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.
11/25/2014 6:36 PM
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.

11/24/2014 7:28 PM
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.
11/23/2014 1:19 PM
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.
11/20/2014 11:31 AM
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.
11/19/2014 12:23 PM
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.

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.
