How Long Can Pau Gasol Stay Atop FBB's Player Ratings?

Los Angeles Lakers big man Pau Gasol currently stands atop FBB's player ratings with averages of 23.2 points, 12.4 rebounds, 1.4 blocks, 54.7% shooting from the field, and 80% shooting from the free throw line. How long can Gasol reasonably stay there?

The Breakdown
The answer lies in the health of center Andrew Bynum. While Bynum's been out, Gasol has played extended minutes, which have helped him put up career best numbers. When Bynum returns, he'll surely put a dent into Gasol's stats, though he should remain a top 10 fantasy stud barring injury. With Bynum expected back in early December, these next few weeks are a great time to seek trades for other superstars if the opportunity presents itself. Players like Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, and LeBron James have more potential to end the season in the top 5 of the ratings than Gasol.
