  • Tyler Dorsey: Signs with Israeli club

    Dorsey signed a one-year contract Saturday with Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv, Eurohoops.net reports. The deal also includes an option for the 2020-21 campaign.

    A second-round selection in 2017, Dorsey made 104 appearances between the Hawks and Grizzlies over the past two seasons before hitting the open market this summer when Memphis declined to extend him a qualifying offer. Had he elected to continue his career stateside, Dorsey likely would have had to settle for a deal with limited guaranteed money attached to it, so he'll head overseas and get some greater financial security. Since he's just 23 years old, Dorsey has plenty of time to boost his stock overseas and garner renewed interest from NBA teams.

  • Grizzlies' Tyler Dorsey: Won't get qualifying offer

    The Grizzlies will not extend a qualifying offer to Dorsey, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The Oregon product split last season between Atlanta and Memphis, and he had a relatively strong finish to the season, averaging 14.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists over his final 11 games with the Grizzlies. Per Wojnarowski, the Grizzlies may entertain bringing Dorsey back on a new deal later this summer.

  • Grizzlies' Tyler Dorsey: Strong stat line in win

    Dorsey totaled 17 points (7-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and one assist across 26 minutes in the Grizzlies' win over the Mavericks on Friday.

    Dorsey remained with the starting five on Friday with Avery Bradley (lower leg) out for the eighth game in a row. In his recent eight game stint in the starting lineup, Dorsey has averaged 14.5 points, 4.5 boards and 3.3 assists in 31.1 minutes.

  • Grizzlies' Tyler Dorsey: Remains productive in loss

    Dorsey supplied 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt) and one assist across 25 minutes in the Grizzlies' 113-96 loss to the Clippers on Sunday.

    Dorsey continued in the starting five with Avery Bradley (lower leg) missing a seventh consecutive contest. Dorsey has now hit double digits in the scoring column in three of his past four games, and in four of the seven Bradley has missed overall. Additionally, despite the scoring-dependent stat line Sunday, the 23-year-old has been a solid contributor in rebounds and assists at different points over the past several games as well.

  • Grizzlies' Tyler Dorsey: Scores 21 points in Monday's win

    Dorsey delivered 21 points (7-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-7 FT), eight rebounds, and five assists in 39 minutes during Monday's 115-103 win over the Thunder.

    Dorsey hauled in a career high rebounding total while amassing 20-plus points for the second time in the last three contests. Mike Conley (thigh) has missed both of the games that Dorsey has gone off during, with the first of those absences being for rest purposes. For as long as Conley remains sidelined, Dorsey seems destined to continue earning ample minutes.

  • Grizzlies' Tyler Dorsey: Career night in OT loss

    Dorsey scored a team-high 29 points (11-19 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 2-7 FT) while adding nine assists, three rebounds and a steal in 43 minutes during Friday's 123-119 overtime loss to the Magic.

    Getting his first start of the season in place of Mike Conley (rest), Dorsey set career highs in points and assists, although his struggles from the charity stripe likely cost the Grizzlies the game. The second-year guard has been seeing more minutes with Avery Bradley (lower leg) sidelined, but unless Conley is also in street clothes, Dorsey's usual role gives him a very limited fantasy ceiling.

    Dorsey will start Friday's contest against the Magic, Michael Wallace of the Grizzlies' official site reports.

    Dorsey posted 27 points (10-19 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, five assists and two steals in the 126-115 win Monday over Sioux Falls.

  • Grizzlies' Tyler Dorsey: Probable for Friday

    Dorsey is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Clippers due to left knee soreness.

    Dorsey's spot on the injury report appears to be just precautionary given his probable tag.

He is not expected to play a significant role in Memphis' backcourt this season.

  • Grizzlies' Tyler Dorsey: Recalled by Grizzlies

    Dorsey was traded by the Hawks to the Grizzlies prior to the NBA's trade deadline, and was subsequently assigned to their G Leage affiliate.

  • Grizzlies' Tyler Dorsey: Headed to Memphis

    Dorsey was traded to the Grizzlies on Thursday in exchange for Shelvin Mack, Michael Wallace of the Grizzlies' official site reports.

    After the Grizzlies traded for Delon Wright, Mack become an expendable asset and allowed Memphis to take a flier on a young player like Dorsey. Dorsey has, for the most part, been on the outside of Atlanta's rotation this year for a multitude of reasons, but given the Grizzlies have shifted towards the development of some of their younger players, Dorsey may get an opportunity for more playing time in Memphis.

  • Hawks' Tyler Dorsey: Gets green light to play

    Dorsey (illness) will be available for Monday's game against the Wizards, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

    Dorsey had been listed as probable with a throat infection. Rowland's report suggests Dorsey is feeling better following the Hawks' morning shootaround, so the second-year guard shouldn't be subject to any limitations in Washington. Dorsey hasn't been a regular staple in Atlanta's rotation this season, appearing in only 27 of the team's 52 games while maxing out at 20 minutes.

  • Hawks' Tyler Dorsey: Appears on injury report

    Dorsey is probable for Monday's game against the Wizards, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

    Dorsey is still expected to be available but there remains the small chance he could be downgraded prior to tip-off. Regardless, the Hawks' rotation is unlikely to be significantly impacted by his status, as the 22-year-old is averaging. 3.3 points and 1.6 rebounds over 9.3 minutes per contest.

  • Hawks' Tyler Dorsey: Appears in garbage time

    Dorsey played two minutes in Friday's 128-112 loss to the Jazz, scoring one point (1-2 FT) and contributing no other statistics.

    Dorsey was unavailable for the Hawks' previous game Wednesday against the Kings but was available in his usual role as a deep reserve for the front end of the back-to-back set. The Hawks are likely to move some of their veterans prior to the Feb. 7 trade deadline, but with rookies Trae Young and Kevin Huerter locked in as the team's starting guards, it's hard to envision Dorsey pushing for major minutes in the final couple months of the season.

  • Hawks' Tyler Dorsey: Chance to return Friday

    Dorsey (knee) is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Jazz, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

    Dorsey has missed the past two games due to a knee injury, but it sounds like he's closing in on a return. Even if the 22-year-old is active Friday, he doesn't figure to factor heavily into the Hawks' rotation.

  • Hawks' Tyler Dorsey: Ruled out Wednesday

    Dorsey (knee) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Kings.

    Dorsey was a late addition to the Hawk's injury report with a bruised left knee. His absence shouldn't have much of an effect on the Hawk's rotation, as he averaging just 9.6 minutes per game this season. His next opportunity to play will be Friday against the Jazz and he should be considered questionable for that game at this time.
