Ennis will not play Wednesday against the Warriors, Peter Fleischer of FOX 13 in Memphis reports. Ennis and Mario Chalmers were dealt to the Grizzlies from Miami on Tuesday, and both players will be held out Wednesday with the expectation that they'll debut Friday against Portland. Ennis played sparingly for the Heat, and he'll likely hold a similar role in Memphis, at least initially.
Ennis was traded to the Grizzlies along with Mario Chalmers in a deal that sent Jarnell Stokes and Beno Udrih to the Heat, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Ennis will be joining a Grizzlies team that is filled with wing players such as Courtney Lee, Vince Carter, Jeff Green, Matt Barnes, Jordan Adams, and Tony Allen. Though he probably won't play significant minutes, his role in allowing Mario Chalmers to join the Grizzlies means that Memphis can play a more uptempo game.
Ennis (illness) was present at shootaround Tuesday and will play against the Lakers. An illness kept Ennis out of practice Monday, but coach Erik Spoelstra said the second-year wing is fine Tuesday and will be available off the bench Tuesday night. Ennis has played just six combined minutes in parts of three games this season.
Ennis (illness) did not practice Monday due to illness. Ennis should be considered questionable for Tuesday's matchup with the Lakers. He's played just six total minutes through Miami's first seven contests.
Ennis, who is dealing with a dislocated finger, practiced fully Monday, Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reports. The left ring finger injury sidelined him during Sunday's practice, but it doesn't sound like the issue is serious enough to keep him out for Wednesday's season opener against the Hornets. Ennis will be available as a bench option for coach Erik Spoelstra, but don't expect him to see significant minutes.
