Pau Gasol could begin practicing with the team as early as next week.
If everything continues to progress the way it has for Gasol, then it appears he will return on the earlier side of the six-to-eight week time table he was given when he originally was injured. If for some reason Gasol is available in your league grab him and stash him, if you are already locked into the playoffs. And, by reports, it seems like Gasol would be the better stash then say Derrick Rose or Kevin Love two players whose returns are more muddled in cliches and uncertainties. With Gasols return imminent, and Earl Clarks struggles of late, (in Feb. Clark averaged about 11 pts and 8 rebs, while in March Clark is averaging only about 7 pts and 5 rebs in 11 less mpg), thus it is best if you seek a replacement for Clark sooner than later.
