    Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Looking to return following All-Star break

    Wright (knee) could be available to return following the All-Star break, Ronald Tillery of the Commercial Appeal reports. Wright underwent arthroscopic surgery mid-December, but is now projected to be just a week or so away from being available to play, which falls in line with his original six-to-eight week recovery timetable. We'll likely have to wait for further updates later in the week, but at the least, it's clear that Wright is almost ready to play. As soon as he returns to the court, it could mean a slight decrease in minutes for the likes of Jeff Green and JaMychal Green.

    Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Will undergo knee scope

    Wright (knee) will undergo arthroscopic surgery Thursday, which will keep him out for 6-to-8 weeks, Chris Vernon of 92.9 FM ESPN reports. The North Carolina product signed as a free agent this offseason and was expected to be a key contributor off the bench for one of the league's better frontcourts, but he's been battling discomfort in the knee for the better part of the season and hasn't played since early November. Wright's continued absence means JaMychal Green and Jeff Green should each continue to pick up extra minutes, and it's possible the struggling Grizzlies could attempt to make a move to add depth at the forward spot. Assuming the 6-to-8-week timetable holds up, Wright should be back on the court sometime in late January or early February.

    Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: No timetable for return

    Wright (knee) still has no timetable for return, according to Memphis general manager Chris Wallace, Peter Edimiston of the Commercial Appeal reports. Wright hasn't played since the beginning of November, and the seriousness of his injury has caused much uncertainty about his return during the 2015-16 season. With Wright out, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol will continue to see increased roles, along with reserve power forward Jeff Green.

    Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Will be out a while

    Wright (knee) will be out a while, according to Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal. The team says the extent of his injury is not yet known, but that it is not just tendinitis. It sounds like Wright is week-to-week at this point, which will mean heavy minutes for Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol, with Jeff Green getting more run at the four.

    Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Out Wednesday

    Wright (knee) will not play Wednesday against the Warriors, Peter Fleischer of FOX 13 in Memphis reports. Wright will miss his second straight game after injuring his knee against the Jazz over the weekend. With new additions Mario Chalmers and James Ennis also sitting out, the Grizzlies will be a bit shorthanded as they take on the undefeated, defending champions.

    Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Doubtful to play Monday

    Wright (knee) is unlikely to play Monday against the Clippers, Ronald Tillery of the Commercial Appeal reports. Wright was questionable to play Monday after suffering a knee injury Saturday and he's now considered doubtful to play. Whether he plays or not his injury should not be considered severe and he should be back soon.

    Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Uncertain to play Monday

    Wright (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Clippers, Peter Fleischer of FOX13 Memphis reports. Wright injured in knee in the Grizzlies' last game Saturday, and it remains to be seen if the setback will cost him any further action. Wright is dealing only with soreness in his knee, so he should not be facing a long-term absence even if he is unable to go Monday

    Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Tallies 11 points Friday

    Wright tallied 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, an assist, a steal, and a block over 26 minutes in Friday's 86-76 loss to the Magic. Wright put in a strong effort in his final tune-up before the regular season and looks like a solid offseason addition by the Grizzlies. The nine boards were particularly encouraging, and marked the second time in the exhibition slate that Wright has reached that figure. Wright has proven capable of providing occasional offense and solid rebounding in past opportunities, and would appear to be a very capable backup to Marc Gasol entering the regular season.

    Grizzlies PF Brandan Wright fitting in well off bench

    Grizzlies power forward Brandan Wright has averaged 9.0 points on 57 percent shooting with 7.5 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 20 minutes per game through two preseason contests with the Grizzlies. The versatile big man won't have a lead role so long as the team is employing Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, but his versatility puts him in the discussion for backup minutes at both center and forward. He's unlikely to hold much value outside of deeper leagues unless an injury to Gasol or Randolph occurs.
