Grizzlies News

JaMychal Green    F/C  Grizzlies

 

 

JaMychal Green (knee) is out against the Lakers for Wednesday. He has been out since Saturday and the Grizzlies may be really thin up front with Brandan Wright (quad) doubtful to play. We may see more Chandler Parsons today while Jarell Martin figures to get some heavier run, as well.

Tyreke Evans    SG  Grizzlies

 

 

Evans is dealing with a right knee injury and is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers. The Grizzlies are playing in the second night of a back-to-back set Wednesday, so Evans likely suffered the injury during Tuesday's game against the Suns. Considering the short break, there's certainly a chance Evans is held out, though look for him test out the knee during pregame warmups before a final decision is made on his availability. If Evans can't give it a go, Mario Chalmers, Kobi Simmons and Andrew Harrison would likely benefit with more minutes in the backcourt.

Brandan Wright    F/C  Grizzlies

 

 

Brandan Wright (left quad) is doubtful to play against the Lakers on Wednesday. He had a right groin injury cost him close to a month, so this may not be related to that. Wright was defending the basket when Tyson Chandler dunked it on him to end the game, so he did finish this game. If he's out, that means we'll see a lot of Jarell Martin and likely plenty of Chandler Parsons at the four, assuming he's a go. Deyonta Davis will likely take the backup center minutes.

Tyreke Evans    G/F  Grizzlies

 

 

Tyreke Evans (right knee) is questionable to face the Lakers on Wednesday. This is a little concerning because this is the same right knee that had three surgeries on it. Evans may be listed as a precaution, but his fantasy owners are probably going to see him on the injury report from time to time. If he can't go, Kobi Simmons is going to see big minutes after he closed out against the Suns in 26 minutes on Tuesday. He's worth a look in deep leagues while Mario Chalmers would likely enter the rotation again.

Jarell Martin    PF  Grizzlies

 

 

Martin produced 10 points (5-9 FG), six rebounds, one steal and one block across 27 minutes in Tuesday's 99-97 loss to the Suns. Martin' dunk off a rebound with 0.6 seconds remaining tied the game at 97, setting up the Suns' innovative winning basket on the next play. The 23-year-old has seen double-digit minutes off the bench in five of the last six games, posting double-digit scoring efforts in two of those contests. He continues to provide serviceable production on the glass, but his inconsistent scoring contributions limit his overall fantasy upside.

Jarell Martin    F  Grizzlies

 

 

Jarell Martin played well on Tuesday vs. the Suns with 10 points, six rebounds, one block and one steal in 27 minutes. Chandler Parsons was rested and JaMychal Green (knee) is still sidelined, so that explains Martin's big night. He had nine points with seven rebounds and a blocked shot in 17 minutes in his previous game, so he could have some low-end value in deeper leagues while the Grizzlies are banged up. They may give him an extended look later in the season as well unless they turn things around.

Tyreke Evans    G/F  Grizzlies

 

 

Tyreke Evans' 25 points wasn't enough in a 99-97 loss to the Suns on Tuesday. Evans finished 10-of-22 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line, adding five rebounds, five assists, one block, one steal and two triples. Evans has been on fire with 22+ points in five out of his last six games, but his injury history and Memphis' position in the standings makes him an obvious sell-high candidate.

Brandan Wright    F/C  Grizzlies

 

 

Brandan Wright started on Tuesday vs. the Suns, but played just 19 minutes with seven points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks. Even with Chandler Parsons (rest) and JaMychal Green (knee) out, the Grizzlies refuse to play Wright big minutes. With that said, that's probably the wise thing to do given Wright's injury history. He's a deep-league asset at best.

Kobi Simmons    G  Grizzlies

 

 

Kobi Simmons played a career-high 26 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Suns, scoring six points with five rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals. Simmons played 25 minutes in his last outing and this confirms that Mario Chalmers (DNP-CD) is officially out of the rotation. With the Grizzlies in 14th place out West and Mike Conley (foot) still without a timetable, there's a really good chance that we'll see a lot more of the rookie going forward. He closed tonight's close game and he's worth monitoring in deeper leagues.

Brandan Wright    F/C  Grizzlies

 

 

Brandan Wright is starting next to Marc Gasol on Tuesday vs. Phoenix. Chandler Parsons (rest) and JaMychal Green (knee) are both out tonight. Wright just recently returned from a lingering groin issue, so while he does have upside, he might not be ready for a full workload.
