Casspi and the Grizzlies agreed to terms on a one-year deal Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Casspi has appeared in just 89 total games over the last two seasons, and his role with Golden State in 2017-18 was ultimately less significant than most anticipated. Casspi averaged only 14.0 minutes per game, which he translated to averages of 5.7 points and 3.8 rebounds. However, he hit 58 percent of his field goal attempts and converted 10-of-22 of his three-point looks. The veteran should be in line for increased minutes on a Grizzlies team that locks depth and high-end talent on the wing.
Casspi was waived by the Warriors on Saturday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. Casspi struggled with his health for much of the season, most recently being sidelined the last 11 games with a bone bruise in his ankle. That limited him to just 53 games, where he averaged 5.7 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 14.0 minutes. With the Warriors upgrading Quinn Cook from a two-way contract to a full one, they needed to release a player, which will now be Casspi. Look for Casspi to continue to go through the rehabilitation process as a free agent and he should field plenty of interest heading into next season once back at full strength.
Casspi (ankle) is out for Saturday's action against the Pelicans. Casspi continues to be day-to-day with a bone bruise in his ankle -- the pain preventing him from playing Saturday. His next chance to take the floor will be Sunday against the Suns.
Casspi (ankle) underwent an MRI that revealed a bone bruise and he is considered day-to-day, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports. The bone bruise is reportedly hindering Casspi's ability to run and jump, so his status heading into Saturday's game against the Pelicans is murky at best. Casspi has been out for close to three weeks, and considering the Warriors' injury issues up and down the roster, their depth could be thin for the rest of the regular season. Look for full confirmation on Casspi's status as tipoff approaches Saturday.
Casspi (ankle) will remain out for Thursday's game against the Pacers, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports. Casspi apparently didn't travel with Warriors during their current two-game road trip, so in addition to missing Tuesday's 111-107 win over the Thunder, he'll also remain out for Thursday's tilt with the Pacers. The likes of Andre Iguodala (knee), Kevon Looney (illness) and Patrick McCaw (back) are all likely to be listed as questionable for Thursday, so the Warriors are fully expected to be short on depth in the frontcourt. At this point, Casspi doesn't have a firm timetable for his return, but his next shot to play will be Saturday against the Pelicans.
