  • Grizzlies' Killian Tillie: Enters health and safety protocols

    Tillie was placed in the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols and won't be available for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves.

    Tillie saw minimal playing time across the last two games, and he'll now be forced to isolate from the team. It's not yet clear whether he's tested positive for COVID-19, and a timetable for his return hasn't been established.

  • Grizzlies' Killian Tillie: Moving to bench

    Tillie will return to the bench for Sunday's game against the Lakers, Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation reports.

    Tillie has started three of the last four games, but the Grizzlies will take a new approach and roll with Kyle Anderson at the nominal power forward spot alongside Jaren Jackson. Tillie is coming off a nine-point outing in 22 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

  • Grizzlies' Killian Tillie: Starting against Clippers

    Tillie is starting Saturday's game against the Clippers.

    Tillie reverted to a bench role in Thursday's win over Detroit, but he'll make his third start in the last four games since Steven Adams (COVID-19 protocols) and Kyle Anderson (back) are sidelined. Across his two starts to begin the calendar year, the 23-year-old has averaged 2.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 16.5 minutes per game.

  • Grizzlies' Killian Tillie: Draws starting assignment

    Tillie is starting Monday's game against the Nets, Rob Fischer of Bally Sports Southeast reports.

    Tillie signed a two-year extension with the Grizzlies just a few days earlier, and he'll now get a chance to make his first start of the 2021 campaign. He hasn't put up any eye-popping numbers through his first 22 games of the year, averaging 3.4 points and 1.7 rebounds in 12.7 minutes, but he could see a sizeable increase in playing time Monday with Dillon Brooks (COVID-19), John Konchar (COVID-19), Ziaire Williams (ankle) and Kyle Anderson (COVID-19) all out of commission.

  • Grizzlies' Killian Tillie: Signs two-year deal

    Tillie and the Grizzlies agreed Saturday to a two-year, $4 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The sophomore forward started to see regular minutes in late November, and over the past four games, he's averaged 3.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.0 blocks in 22.4 minutes. While those numbers aren't eye-popping, he seemingly fits the Grizzlies' system well. In a subsequent move, Memphis waived Sam Merrill (ankle).

  • Grizzlies' Killian Tillie: Plays 19 minutes off bench

    Tillie registered six points (2-3 FG, 2-3 3Pt), one rebound, one block and two steals across 19 minutes during Wednesday's 104-96 loss to Dallas.

    The 19 minutes were easily a season high for Tillie, whom coach Tayler Jenkins seemed to favor over Xavier Tillman (10 minutes) and Santi Aldama (nine minutes). The decision was likely matchup-based, as Tillie saw just nine combined minutes of action in Memphis' previous two contests. The former Gonzaga standout has appeared in 11 of Memphis' 25 games overall.

  • Grizzlies' Killian Tillie: Returns to action in G League

    Tillie (back) played 28 minutes for the G League's Memphis Hustle in the team's 106-100 win over the Texas Legends on Tuesday, finishing with 13 points (5-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds and one block.

    Though Tillie didn't leave the bench Monday after being cleared from the Grizzlies' injury report ahead of the team's eventual 136-102 win over the Rockets, he got the chance to pick up some meaningful run in the G League a day later. Tillie appears to have moved past the sore back that had previously kept him out of action for about a week, but as a two-way player, he's unlikely to get many opportunities at the NBA level anytime soon.

  • Grizzlies' Killian Tillie: Removed from injury report

    Tillie (back) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Monday's matchup with the Mavericks.

    Tillie is dealing with a lingering back injury that has forced him to miss four straight games. However, it appears he will be available Monday after he was removed from the injury report. The 6-foot-10 forward is averaging 7.0 minutes per game across three appearances this season.

  • Grizzlies' Killian Tillie: Out Monday

    The Grizzlies list Tillie as out for Monday's game against the Timberwolves with back soreness.

    All three of Tillie's appearances for the Grizzlies this season have come in garbage-time scenarios, so his absence Monday won't affect head coach Taylor Jenkins' rotation.

  • Grizzlies' Killian Tillie: Out with sore back

    Tillie will not play in Tuesday's preseason opener against the Bucks due to a sore back.
