News: Gasol (vertigo) will not play in the Lakers' three remaining games this season, the team's official website reports. Impact: Gasol's case of vertigo will end his season after 60 games played. However, since he has played just one game since Mar. 23, the Lakers' rotation figures to remain the same, with Jordan Hill and Robert Sacre handling minutes at center.

News: Gasol (head) won't take the floor Friday versus the Warriors, the Lakers' official site reports. Impact: The absence isn't a surprise, considering Gasol has been deemed "unlikely" to play again this season. Fellow center, Chris Kaman, is also out due to a calf injury, which places the onus of that position on the shoulders of Jordan Hill, with Robert Sacre a very secondary option.(RotoWire, )

News: Gasol (vertigo) is listed as "doubtful" for Friday's outing against the Warriors, the Lakers' official site reports. Impact: Initially, Gasol was considered out Friday, but there is now a glimmer of hope, however small, that he'll suit up. Because Chris Kaman is also deemed out for the aforementioned contest, Jordan Hill is the main man down low for the Lakers, with Robert Sacre filling in as a reserve.(RotoWire, )

News: Gasol (vertigo) is "unlikely" to return this season, ESPN Los Angeles reports. Impact: This news shouldn't come as a surprise, as Gasol was expected to remain out for the final games of the season. He's averaging 17.4 points, 9.7 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 1.5 blocks per game this season, and it appears his fantasy dominance may be coming to an end. Consider Jordan Hill and Ryan Kelly to be the primary beneficiaries of his minutes.(RotoWire, )

News: Gasol (vertigo) will miss the Lakers' game on Tuesday against the Rockets, the team's official site reports. Impact: Gasol has been dealing with vertigo and the team is considering shutting him down for the remainder of the season, so Tuesday's absence isn't too much of a surprise. The Lakers' next game is Friday against the Warriors, so that will be Gasol's next chance to return, but he is likely doubtful for that game as well.(RotoWire, )

News: Gasol (vertigo) may be done for the season, the Los Angeles Times reports. The Lakers are strongly considering shutting him down for the remaining seven games as he recovers from severe recurrences of vertigo. Impact: This news comes as a devastating blow to Gasol, as he may have played his last game as a member of the Lakers, if he is traded in the offseason. It's becoming clearer that he's on the decline of his fantasy stardom, and he may not reach the level of fantasy dominance again in future seasons. He's averaging 17.4 points, 9.7 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 1.5 blocks per game this season. Consider Chris Kaman, Jordan Hill, and Ryan Kelly solid adds in light of this news.(RotoWire, )

News: Gasol (vertigo) will return to Los Angeles on the team plane Wednesday night, the Lakers' official site reports. Impact: Gasol missed Wednesday's game with a "severe recurrence of vertigo," which apparently made flying on the team plane an uncertainty. The good news is that he improved since prior to the game, but the condition is still a cause for concern moving forward. If he has to miss additional time, look for Chris Kaman, Jordan Hill and Robert Sacre to continue to pick up the minutes he leaves behind.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 2, 2014
News: Gasol (vertigo) has had a "severe recurrence of vertigo" and will not play in Wednesday's game in Sacramento, the team's official site reports. Impact: Gasol returned from a four-game absence on Tuesday after missing with vertigo. The recurrence of vertigo on Wednesday is something to be of concern going forward with Gasol. Chris Kaman is a game-time decision for Wednesday as well, so in his and Gasol's absence, expect Jordan Hill and Robert Sacre to pick up minutes in the Lakers' frontcourt.(RotoWire, )
