Tyreke Evans    SG  Grizzlies

 

 

Evans totaled 10 points (4-16 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, six assists and two steals in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 97-84 loss to Golden State. Evans turned in a poor performance Wednesday, finishing with just 10 points on 16 shots. He continues to see big minutes with Mike Conley (Achilles) out indefinitely and is producing at a corresponding level. He is more than likely a player that was taken from the waiver wire, and will undoubtedly be one of the pickups of the season. The Grizzlies travel to Phoenix for a favorable matchup against the Suns on Thursday, giving Evans the opportunity to have a nice bounce-back game.

Marc Gasol    C  Grizzlies

 

 

Gasol tallied 21 points (5-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 9-10 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 97-84 loss to the Warriors. Gasol continues to do a lot of the heavy lifting on offense without the injured Mike Conley (Achilles). His rebounding numbers remain up on last season, however, some of his other numbers are beginning to trend in the wrong direction. The current status of the team is something new for Gasol and it will be interesting to see how he handles the adversity. There have been rumors of a trade but nothing has been confirmed or denied. He is clearly a must-own player but is worth keeping an eye on in case there is a change in his circumstances.

Andrew Harrison    G  Grizzlies

 

 

Andrew Harrison played 24 minutes on Wednesday, going 1-of-6 from the field with a 3-pointer to score four points with two rebounds, two assists and two blocks. Mike Conley (Achilles) has been ruled out until early January, at the earliest, so Harrison should continue to split PG minutes with Mario Chalmers (six point, six boards in 27 minutes) for the next few weeks. Neither guy is trustworthy in 12-team formats, but at least Harrison isn't tanking your FG percentage over the past month (46.1% FGs).

Tyreke Evans    G/F  Grizzlies

 

 

Tyreke Evans had a brutal night shooting the ball on Wednesday, going 4-of-16 from the field for 10 points, six rebounds, six assists and two steals. Evans connected on a 3-pointer and only turned the ball over twice, so this could have been much worse. Mike Conley (Achilles) has been ruled out until early January, at the earliest, which means Evans will continue to have the ball in his hands on most possessions. Despite all the turmoil in Memphis this season, Evans is cruising along as a steady top-50 fantasy play.

Marc Gasol    C  Grizzlies

 

 

The Grizzlies lost to the Warriors on Wednesday, 97-84, with Marc Gasol contributing 21 points, nine rebounds, five assists, two steals and a pair of 3-pointers. Gasol played 36 minutes and went 9-of-10 from the FT line, but he also shot 5-of-15 from the field with three turnovers and zero blocks. Interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff has mentioned the need to get Gasol shots closer to the basket to increase his efficiency, yet tonight he took just four shots in the paint compared to five 3-point attempts. Marc's previous career-low was 45.9 percent shooting -- he's at 42.0 percent through 31 games this year.

JaMychal Green    F/C  Grizzlies

 

 

JaMychal Green had four points, four rebounds, two steals and one block in 24 minutes during Wednesday's road loss vs. the Warriors. Chandler Parsons was being rested as a precaution tonight, but his absence didn't do anything to help Green tonight -- his 24 minutes were actually the lowest since Dec. 1. The Grizzlies' offense is a mess and Green isn't a guy who creates his own shots, so it's hard to see him suddenly scoring double-digits on a consistent basis -- he's averaging 7.4 points over the past eight games.

Brandan Wright    PF  Grizzlies

 

 

Wright (groin) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Warriors. Wright's return will have to wait a little longer as the center is set to miss his 10th straight game as he continues to work his way back from a lingering groin issue. With the big man sidelined, look for Jarell Martin to serve as the team's backup center behind Marc Gasol. Wright's next chance to get back in action will come Thursday against the Suns.

Brandan Wright    F/C  Grizzlies

 

 

Brandan Wright (groin) will not play against the Warriors on Wednesday. He was doubtful, but Wright's groin injury has been a problem for about a month. We could see some small-ball lineups against the Warriors tonight.
