Winslow (back) noted that he is "pain-free and symptom-free" and plans to "get right back into the swing of things" when the season resumes, Michael Wallace of Grind City Media reports. Winslow was set to return to play right when the season stopped, so it makes sense that he's feeling 100 percent. He was dealt to the Grizzlies on Feb. 5 but hasn't yet had an opportunity to suit up for his new team.
Winslow (back) is expected to be available to make his Grizzlies debut whenever the NBA season resumes, Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic reports. "I felt great," Winslow said after going through a five-on-five practice March 11, the Grizzlies' final session before the NBA went on hiatus. "It felt great while I'm playing and great on the recovery side." Coach Taylor Jenkins was similarly positive about how Winslow looked during that session, indicating the trade-deadline pickup likely would have been cleared to play had the Grizzlies' game against the Trail Blazers a day later not been postponed. The extended break should only help Winslow put his lingering back injury in the rear-view mirror, though it's unclear exactly what his role will look like right away when the season resumes. Teammate Dillon Brooks hinted that the Grizzlies will likely insert Winslow into the starting five, with the 24-year-old presumably replacing Kyle Anderson and slotting into a wing spot alongside Brooks and point guard Ja Morant in that lineup arrangement. Before being traded from Miami, Winslow averaged 11.3 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 32.0 minutes per game, but he shot just 38.8 percent from the field and 22.2 percent from behind the arc.
Winslow (back) was assigned to the G League's Memphis Hustle on Monday to participate in practice with the affiliate. The Grizzlies intend to recall Winslow immediately after the session before assessing his availability for game action moving foward. While Winslow will remain out for Tuesday's game against the Magic, the Grizzlies expect that he'll be ready to play within the next week, so he could make his team debut as early as Thursday in Portland. Given his brief time in the organization in addition to the back problems he's battled dating back to his time with the Heat, Winslow will likely handle a more limited role off the bench in his initial action with the Grizzlies.
Winslow (back) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Hawks. The Grizzlies expect Winslow to return at some point this season, but the club hasn't offered a concrete target date for him to resume practicing since they acquired him from the Heat prior to the Feb. 6 trade deadline. With no word arriving that Winslow has resumed on-court work at this point, he can probably be ruled out for all four of the Grizzlies' games this week.
Winslow (back) remains out indefinitely as the Grizzlies enter a four-game week, which begins with a matchup against the Clippers on Monday. The Grizzlies have remained mum on Winslow's progress since they acquired him from the Heat at the deadline. The Duke product hasn't played in nearly two full months, and he's appeared in only one game since Dec. 4. Memphis hasn't given anything in the way of a timetable, but Winslow will carry the usual "out" designation into Monday's contest, and there hasn't been any indication that he's close to returning to game action.
