Cabocle was diagnosed with a bone bruise on his left knee and will miss the next 4-to-6 weeks. The 24-year-old has been sidelined since hyperextending his left knee Monday versus the Santa Cruz Warriors, and he'll now face an extended absence due to the injury. Caboclo is averaging 8.7 minutes in 22 appearances with the Grizzlies this season, but he hasn't seen significant playing time since an eight-game stretch in the first half of December.
Caboclo (knee) won't play Friday against the Cavaliers. Caboclo will miss his second straight game with left knee soreness, though he's unlikely to see much time even when healthy. He'll continue to be evaluated on a game-by-game basis moving forward.
Caboclo won't play Tuesday against Houston due to left knee soreness. Caboclo hasn't had much of a role with the Grizzlies so far this season, averaging just 8.7 minutes along with 2.8 points in 22 games, so his absence Tuesday shouldn't have much of an impact on the team's rotation.
Caboclo was assigned to the Hustle on Monday. Caboclo was dispatched to the G League on Monday in order to get extra reps. He's struggled to find regular minutes within coach Taylor Jenkins' lineup this season and is posting averages of just 2.8 points and 2.0 rebounds in 8.7 minutes per game.
Caboclo's $1.85 million contract for 2019-20 became guaranteed after he remained on the Grizzlies' roster through Tuesday's deadline, Anthony Sain of SI.com reports. Caboclo hasn't been a fixture in coach Taylor Jenkins' rotation this season with an average of only 9.0 minutes per game over 21 appearances, but the Grizzlies value the length and athleticism he offers as a reserve in the frontcourt. With Jonas Valanciunas, Jaren Jackson and Brandon Clarke filling nearly all the minutes at center or power forward in any given game, however, Caboclo will likely need an injury before he garners any meaningful playing time.
