    Grizzlies trim roster with four cuts

    The Grizzlies parted ways with four players Saturday, two more than they needed to reach the maximum roster size prior to the start of the season.

  • Ely rides the pine

    News: Denver center Melvin Ely was expected to play Thursday in Phoenix, but did not make it off the bench. He received a DNP - coach's decision in the Nuggets 116-97 win over the Suns. Ely had sat out five straight games with a sprained ankle.
    Analysis: It's unclear if Ely's ankle is still bothering him, but with Denver being such a deep team right now, he'll likely be either inactive, get a DNP or see mop-up duty the rest of the year. Fantasy owners should go on ignoring Ely in all formats as he doesn't warrant any attention at this time.
  • Ely expected to play Thursday

    News: The Denver Post reports Nuggets center Melvin Ely is expected to play Thursday against the Suns after missing five straight games with a sprained ankle.
    Analysis: Ely is playing just 12.5 minutes per game this season, so he doesn't have much of a chance to contribute to the Nuggets cause. His chances have even come down more since the team became one of the deeper squads in the west after the Carmelo Anthony trade. Ely remains a player to be avoided in Fantasy play.
  • Ely likely to remain inactive

    News: Denver center Melvin Ely hasn't played since Jan. 31 as he's been dealing with a sprained ankle. The team is considering him day to day, but he's been inactive for weeks now.
    Analysis: Ely probably won't see the court even when he's healthy as the Nuggets are extremely deep since trading away Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups. With other big men ahead of him on the depth chart, Fantasy owners should ignore Ely the rest of the year -- even when he gets healthy.
  • Ely misses another

    News: Though he wasn't ruled inactive heading into the game, Denver center Melvin Ely missed Thursday's game against the Jazz while continuing to deal with a sprained right ankle. He's now missed every game since January 31.
    Analysis: Ely continues to miss games, but the Nuggets are set in the frontcourt after acquiring Timofey Mozgov and Kosta Koufos at the trade deadline to backup Nene and Chris Anderson. Ely is not needed at this time, and it would be foolish for Denver to rush him back. Even when healthy, he is a player to be ignored in all Fantasy formats.
  • Ely remains inactive

    News: Denver center Melvin Ely hasn't played since Jan. 31. He continues to miss time with a sprained right ankle. He missed Wednesday's outing versus the Bobcats.
    Analysis: The Nuggets are a very deep team after trading Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups to the Knicks. That being said, once Ely is healthy enough to play he'll likely remain inactive as he's the low-man in the depth chart. He can be ignored in all Fantasy formats.
  • Ely still missing time for Denver

    News: Denver C Melvin Ely remains out with a sprained right ankle. Ely missed Monday's game against Atlanta and last played on Jan. 31 in New Jersey.
    Analysis: Ely has minimal Fantasy value when healthy. Ignore him in all leagues even when he returns to the court.
  • Ely out Friday

    News: The Nuggets official team website reports Friday that center Melvin Ely is out for Friday's game at Portland due to a sprained right ankle.
    Analysis: Ely has minimal Fantasy value when healthy. Ignore him in all leagues even when he returns to the court.
