Marc Gasol returns in Grizzlies' loss

He's back, but it didn't help.  Marc Gasol returned to the lineup last night, but the Memphis Grizzlies lost to the New York Knicks 108-101.  Gasol had missed the team's previous two games, but he was announced as a go shortly before last night's game.

Rob Fischer, one of the Grizzlies' sideline reporters, confirmed that Gasol would play before the game. Gasol is battling an abdominal tear.  It was a re-aggravation of a prior injury, but it was enough to keep him out of game action for a few nights.

Gasol is the younger brother of Pau Gasol.  Marc is just 28 years old and in his fifth NBA season.  All five seasons have been with the Grizzlies.  Gasol may not be quite as talented as his brother or get quite the attention, but this season he's outscored Pau.

Marc Gasol is averaging 14.3 points per game compared with Pau Gasol's 13.8 points per game.  In his career, Marc has averaged 13.3 points and 8.0 rebounds per game.  The big center for the Grizzlies is starting to make his presence felt more often than not in games.
