According to Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Grizzlies big man Marc Gasol has been diagnosed with a bone bruise on his right knee, and is considered questionable for the Grizzlies home game against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday.

Gasol injured the knee during Wednesday night’s loss to the Houston Rockets, a game in which he only played 25 minutes. After the contest, Gasol revealed that he was being bothered by knee soreness throughout the night. 

Gasol, who is averaging a career high 19.4 points per game this year, is an early-season favorite for the MVP award, along with Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry.

Memphis currently trails Golden State by half-a-game for the Western Conference’s first seed.
