Brooks had four points to go with one rebound and one block in 15 minutes during Friday's 121-103 preseason loss to the Rockets. Brooks came off the bench once again and failed to have any sort of impact on the game. His role for the season opener remains somewhat of a mystery given his preseason outings. Brooks had an impressive rookie season, however, that was arguably due to the number of injuries to those players around him. The Grizzlies are much healthier now which could mean a downturn in fantasy production for the second year player out of Oregon.
Brooks isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's preseason finale against Houston. It's unclear if Brooks is getting the night off or if he'll come off the bench, but Kyle Anderson gets the nod at shooting guard. Brooks figures to be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's season-opener against Indiana.
Brooks is not in the starting lineup Saturday against the Pacers. It's not clear if Brooks is getting the night off for rest on the second half of a back-to-back set. As a result, he's a risky pick in DFS.
Brooks will start at shooting guard for Friday's contest against the Hawks, Chris Herrington of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports. Garrett Temple drew the start during the exhibition opener, but the Grizzlies will opt to send in the sophomore Brooks in for Friday's contest. During the opener, Brooks posted two points, one assist, one steal and one block in 14 minutes.
Brooks exploded for 36 points (14-22 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 137-123 loss to the Thunder. Brooks finished with a career high in scoring in the season finale, and heads into the offseason on a high note after scoring 15-plus points in each of the final four games. The 22-year-old rookie wing was among the few bright spots for the Grizzlies in an otherwise awful year.
