Grizzlies' Jarell Martin: Doesn't play in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (foot) didn't see the floor in Wednesday's 102-98 season-opening win over the Timberwolves.

While Martin occupied one of the active roster slots for the Grizzlies, it wasn't clear if he was actually available off the bench, as the team had listed him questionable heading into the day with right foot inflammation. Even if Martin's condition is trending positively, it's possible coach David Fizdale was unwilling to give the big man minutes in a competitive game after Martin had sat out the Grizzlies' final four preseason contests. Look for the Grizzlies to relay an update on Martin's situation heading into Saturday's matchup with the Knicks.

Grizzlies' Troy Daniels: Doesn't play in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Grizzlies' JaMychal Green: Scores 12 points in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green scored 12 points (4-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added seven rebounds, one block and one assist across 29 minutes in Wednesday's 102-98 win over the Timberwolves.

While Green's production in any one area didn't stand out, his multi-category contributions demonstrated the versatility of his skill set and speak to why coach David Fizdale was eager to promote him to the starting lineup over Zach Randolph to begin the season. Green ultimately saw only four more minutes than Randolph, who produced the better fantasy line with 19 points and 11 rebounds, but Green should enjoy some longevity in the starting five. Randolph's scoring skills are probably a better fit on the second unit at this stage of his career, while the more mobile, athletic Green makes for a more ideal frontcourt partner for starting center Marc Gasol.

Grizzlies' Zach Randolph: Provides double-double off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Randolph submitted 19 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 11 rebounds and one assist across 25 minutes in Wednesday's 102-98 win over the Timberwolves.

New coach David Fizdale decided in training camp to transition Randolph to a bench role this season in order to allow the more athletic JaMychal Green to enter the starting five, but as the season opener revealed, it doesn't mean that the veteran is being phased out of the rotation. In fact, due to his historically reliable contributions as a volume scorer and rebounder in the lower block, Randolph has a good shot at surpassing Green in fantasy value. Green saw only four more minutes than Randolph on Wednesday, and the playing time distribution between the two should remain fairly even over the course of the campaign, as both players offer differing skill sets that provide value in their own ways.

Grizzlies' James Ennis: Scores 15 points in season-opening start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis supplied 15 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds and one steal across 28 minutes in Wednesday's 102-98 win over the Timberwolves.

Ennis entered the starting lineup in place of Chandler Parsons (knee) and ended up dominating the minutes at the position while Vince Carter soaked up what was left over. Parsons has recently resumed five-on-five work and seems to be closing in on a return to active duty following a long rehab process from knee surgery, but Ennis still could be in line for a few more starts. Ennis proved to be a capable three-point shooter when he received extended run with the Pelicans late last season, and the Grizzlies are banking on him continuing to thrive in that capacity once he transitions back to a bench role following Parsons' return.
