With Hamstring “Fully Healed”, Marc Gasol Ready to Go in the Bubble

He’s lean and feeling good.

After being a key piece to the Toronto Raptors championship run back in 2019, Marc Gasol’s season was plagued with left hamstring injuries. The Spaniard initially missed 12 games due to the injury back in December and would then miss 16 of the team’s final 17 games prior to the shutdown after re-aggravating the same hamstring.

With the Raptors all moved into the bubble, head coach Nick Nurse has confirmed that Gasol is “fully healed” and is ready to go.

Despite battling consistency issues on the offensive side of the floor all season, Gasol has remained the anchor of a top-5 NBA defensive unit. In 36 games this season, Gasol is averaging career-lows in both points per game (7.6) and field goal percentage (41.9%). Nevertheless, he has been efficient from the perimeter, shooting 40.2% from long range, while also grabbing 6.3 boards per game.

The Raptors were overwhelmed with the shear amount of injuries they faced throughout the season, therefore the hiatus might have just been a blessing in disguise for the reigning champions.
