Rabb (personal) won't play in Sunday's summer league game against the Pelicans, Michael Wallace of the Grizzlies' official site reports. Rabb is away from the team for personal reasons, though he figures to return to the squad within the next few days.
Rabb will not play Saturday against the Celtics for personal reasons, Michael Wallace of the Grizzlies' official site reports. Rabb is attending a funeral, causing him to miss the Grizzlies' potentially final summer league game. The LVSL playoffs are single elimination.
Rabb mustered just two points (1-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt) but added 12 rebounds and one assist across 23 minutes during the Grizzlies' 79-69 win over the Suns in a Las Vegas Summer League game Tuesday. Rabb endured an abysmal shooting night, but his team-high rebounding tally helped partly make up for his struggles. The third-year pro has already seen action in 85 NBA regular-season games during his first two pro campaigns, but the Grizzlies are looking to get him further seasoning this summer as he prepares for another year in the frontcourt rotation. Rabb's shooting has notably been an issue going back to the Salt Lake City Summer League, when he drained just 29.0 percent of his 14 attempts during that brief tournament.
Rabb is on the Grizzlies' summer league roster. Rabb has been a deep bench option at center for the Grizzlies over the past two seasons. He'll be turning 22 next season with the hopes of showing off his development during summer league.
Rabb will start Wednesday's game against the Warriors, Phillip Dean of Fox Sports South reprots. Rabb will get the starting nod for Wednesday's season finale. In 12 previous starts this year, Rabb's averaging 10.2 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 24.4 minutes.
