After tonight's win over Atlanta we got Chris Vernon relaying a lovely message on Twitter:
Marc Gasol going through full practice tomorrow. They are gonna see how goes and then who knows— Chris Vernon (@ChrisVernonShow) January 13, 2014
While I'm not totally sold on the notion that this means Gasol will return this week, it's definitely a sign that we're headed in the right direction and opens the possibility for some playing time for Marc in the coming games.
It would be fantastic for Big Spain to return during what is showing to be a wave of positive chemistry for the Grizzlies, but Griz fans shouldn't rule out the chance of Gasol sitting for another couple of weeks. Memphis looks like it may be able to hold their head above water offensively without their All-Star center, but the Grizzlies continue to be aloof for stretches on the defensive end.
