Memphis Grizzlies’ center Marc Gasol made his return to the court for the first time since November 22 on Tuesday night, helping the Grizzlies to a 90-87 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Gasol scored 12 points on three-of-seven shooting, went six-of-eight from the free throw line and pulled down four rebounds.

He played 24 minutes.

Gasol, last season’s Defensive Player of the Year, missed 22 games after suffering a left grade 2 MCL sprain.
