Daniels (knee) didn't play in Wednesday's 102-98 win over the Timberwolves.
Daniels was listed as probable heading into this contest, but his absence doesn't necessarily indicate he's still dealing with the left knee sprain. Instead, it's likely a case where coach David Fizdale doesn't view Daniels as a rotation player, a damning indictment considering the Grizzlies were without two of their key wings in Chandler Parsons (knee) and Tony Allen (knee) and plenty of minutes were available. After Andrew Harrison (four points on 1-for-7 shooting in 38 minutes) floundered while making a spot start for Allen at shooting guard, perhaps Fizdale may rethink his rotation and give Daniels some run Saturday against the Knicks.

The extent of Daniels' knee injury isn't known, so the shooting guard will retain a day-to-day tag heading into the Oct. 26 regular-season opener against the Timberwolves. When healthy during the preseason, Daniels shot 3-for-20 from the field and 0-for-8 from three-point range in his four appearances, which probably takes him out of consideration for a rotation spot to begin the season.
When Daniels exactly suffered from the injury is unknown, but he is coming off a DNP (coach's decision) in Thursday's preseason win over the Thunder. Regardless of how serious the injury is for Daniels, it does not appear as though he is in line for a legitimate role off the bench for the Grizzlies this season barring any injuries to the backcourt.
Daniels (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in Thursday's 110-94 preseason win over the Thunder.
After coming over from the Hornets in a sign-and-trade this offseason, Daniels was expected to contend for a sizable bench role to begin the season, but it doesn't look like that's in the cards based on how he's performed in the preseason. After going 2-for-11 from the field and 0-for-4 in his first three exhibition appearances, Daniels was dropped from the rotation entirely Thursday, despite not dealing with a reported injury. The three-point specialist will need to turn it around over the Grizzlies' final two preseason outings if he hopes to see consistent minutes when the regular season opens.
