Chalmers (Achilles) is still "not physically ready" to be cleared for a return to action, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

Chalmers' name was brought up regarding rumors surrounding the Grizzlies, a team he's had a previous relationship with and is currently in the market for a guard after Mike Conley went down for an extended absence with a back injury. However, according to MacMahon, Chalmers was excluded from that conversation due to needing more time in the recovery process, so it appears he's not a full-go quite yet. Chalmers was hoping to be cleared for full activity mid-November, but it looks as if that timeline could extend well into December. He'll look to latch on with a contender once back to 100 percent.
