Lyles tallied 18 points (6-12 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 32 minutes during Monday's 102-96 loss the Grizzlies.

Lyles saw extended action after Derrick Favors left the game with left knee soreness. The 21-year-old made the most of the opportunity, recording season highs in both scoring and steals. Since left knee issues have bothered Favors since the preseason, it wouldn't be surprising if he missed Thursday's game against the Jazz, in which case Lyles and Boris Diaw would be in line to absorb all of the playing time at power forward.
