Last year’s defensive player of the year is set to return tonight for the Memphis Grizzlies (17-19).

Marc Gasol will return tonight against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Gasol has missed 7 weeks due to a knee injury suffered against the San Antonio Spurs.

In just 16 games, Gasol has averaged 16 points and 7.1 rebounds.

The Grizzlies are currently out of the playoff picture, as they are 3 1/2 games back of the final spot. With Gasol returning expect a push from them to fight for a position.

UPDATE: In 24 minutes, Gasol had 12 points and 4 rebounds as the Grizzlies beat OKC 90-87.
