Is Pau Gasol Starting to Wear Down?

FBB's top rated player, Los Angeles Lakers center Pau Gasol, has seen his scoring begin to slide amid L.A.'s four-game losing streak. In his last five games, he's averaging just 13.8 points per game even though he's playing 43.4 minutes a game in that stretch.

The Breakdown
His blocks and rebounds remain strong, but it's looking like the extended minutes Gasol is playing due to injuries to Andrew Bynum and Theo Ratliff are starting to take their toll. Gasol should continue being a top 10 fantasy stud for the season, but he may lose his grip on the top spot sooner rather than later if the point totals don't start to rise in the near future.
