Tyreke Evans    SG  Grizzlies

 

 

Evans scored 18 points (5-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-8 FT) while adding six rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 98-88 loss to the Nets. He continues to be the only reliable scoring option for the Grizzlies on their second unit, and Evans has now dropped at least 15 points in 12 of the last 13 games, averaging 20.2 points, 4.8 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.8 three-pointers and 1.2 steals over that stretch. Even with the team having dropped eight straight games, Evans' sixth-man role and consistent minutes have allowed him to maintain strong fantasy value.

Marc Gasol    C  Grizzlies

 

 

Gasol scored 18 points (6-17 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT) while adding five rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in 28 minutes during Sunday's 98-88 loss to the Nets. Despite the fact that he tied for the team lead in scoring on the night, Gasol took a seat for the entire fourth quarter as coach David Fizdale turned to his second unit to try and mount a comeback. Gasol's spot in the starting five wouldn't seem to be in any jeopardy, but with the Grizz having lost eight straight games, his minutes could continue to fluctuate until they right the ship.

Marc Gasol    C  Grizzlies

 

 

Marc Gasol was upset after sitting out the final 15 minutes during Sunday's home loss to the Nets, which he finished with 18 points (6-of-17 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block. "I'm sure they wouldn't do it to Mike [Conley]," Gasol said. "I'm not just gonna lay down and take it. I hate not playing, that's what I value most. If I'm not out there, I'm not valued. I'm sure they knew that would hurt me the most." His reference to 'they' in that sentence can only mean the Grizzlies' coaching staff. Memphis has lost eight straight games and Gasol is understandably frustrated, but he'll get a few days to mend fences prior to Wednesday's game vs. the Spurs.

Dillon Brooks    G/F  Grizzlies

 

 

Dillon Brooks played 23 minutes on Sunday, his lowest since Oct. 23, finishing with two points on 1-of-5 shooting, one rebound and two steals. Memphis scored 88 points tonight, which is the fewest allowed by the Nets this season -- and it came on the Grizzlies' home court. David Fizdale rode his second unit far more than usual in the second half, as they clawed back from a big deficit, and none of the Grizzlies' starters fared well tonight.

Tyreke Evans    G/F  Grizzlies

 

 

Tyreke Evans started the second half of Sunday's home loss to the Nets, posting 18 points (5-of-15 FGs, 6-of-8 FTs), six boards, three assists and a pair of 3-pointers in 32 minutes. Chandler Parsons exited earlier with tightness in his right knee, which prompted Evans' promotion to the first unit. Memphis was crushed in the third quarter, 32-18, and it's not a given that Tyreke will continue to start even if Parsons can't play vs. the Spurs on Wednesday. He's been thriving as a sixth-man, of course, so a bench role suits fantasy owners just fine.

Mario Chalmers    G  Grizzlies

 

 

Mario Chalmers played 19 minutes vs. Brooklyn on Sunday, scoring three points with two assists, two steals, one rebound and one 3-pointer. According to the Grizzlies' TV broadcast, coach David Fizdale intended to limit Chalmers after playing him 32.3 minutes in the past three games. The drop to 19 minutes was extreme, of course, and it was more a result of the game -- Memphis was crushed to start the third quarter but their reserves pulled them back into the game, so Fizdale stayed with what was working. Chalmers should be back in the 28-32 minute range on Monday.

Chandler Parsons    SF  Grizzlies

 

 

Parsons left Sunday's game against the Nets with right knee tightness and will not return. Parsons played 12 minutes before exiting Sunday's contest, and with the Grizzlies describing his absence as precautionary, there doesn't seem to be much concern surrounding the wing's knee. Memphis has off until Wednesday, so Parsons will have two days to rest and recover before returning to action.

Chandler Parsons    F  Grizzlies

 

 

Chandler Parsons (right knee tightness) will not return on Sunday. Parsons continued to play after tweaking his knee on an awkward landing in the first half, and he did take some jumpers at halftime. Memphis decided to play it safe with their oft-injured forward, calling his absence "precautionary," so hopefully this won't be a lingering issue. Tyreke Evans started the second half, and guys like Dillon Brooks and Jarell Martin should also gain minutes if Parsons ends up missing time.

Jarell Martin    PF  Grizzlies

 

 

Martin was assigned to the G-League on Saturday. Martin has fallen out of the rotation now the Grizzlies are relatively healthy in the frontcourt, so he'll join the Memphis Hustle for an opportunity to see big minutes in a game setting. In his first G-League appearance this season, Martin had nine points and eight rebounds in a win over the Iowa Wolves on Nov. 17.

Jarell Martin    F  Grizzlies

 

 

Jarell Martin was assigned to the Memphis Hustle of the G League. With Deyonta Davis playing well and JaMychal Green back to 100 percent, the Grizzlies don't really need Martin anymore.
