Grizzlies' JaMychal Green: Scores 16 points, adds five steals Wednesday
Green collected 16 points (5-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT), five rebounds, five steals, one assist and one block across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 120-105 loss to the Raptors.
With injuries mounting up and down the roster for the second straight season, Green has been asked to take on more responsibility on the offensive end, and has risen to the challenge. He's hit double figures in the scoring column in six of the last seven games, and is averaging 12.1 points (on 59.2% shooting), 7.1 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal in 31.4 minutes per game during that span. Green is worth a look if his previous fantasy owner lost patience with him when his production lagged earlier in the season, as the absences of Mike Conley (back), Chandler Parsons (knee), James Ennis (calf) and Zach Randolph (personal) will continue to leave plenty of volume to go around.
