The Grizzlies will not extend a qualifying offer to Dorsey, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The Oregon product split last season between Atlanta and Memphis, and he had a relatively strong finish to the season, averaging 14.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists over his final 11 games with the Grizzlies. Per Wojnarowski, the Grizzlies may entertain bringing Dorsey back on a new deal later this summer.
Dorsey totaled 17 points (7-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and one assist across 26 minutes in the Grizzlies' win over the Mavericks on Friday. Dorsey remained with the starting five on Friday with Avery Bradley (lower leg) out for the eighth game in a row. In his recent eight game stint in the starting lineup, Dorsey has averaged 14.5 points, 4.5 boards and 3.3 assists in 31.1 minutes.
Dorsey supplied 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt) and one assist across 25 minutes in the Grizzlies' 113-96 loss to the Clippers on Sunday. Dorsey continued in the starting five with Avery Bradley (lower leg) missing a seventh consecutive contest. Dorsey has now hit double digits in the scoring column in three of his past four games, and in four of the seven Bradley has missed overall. Additionally, despite the scoring-dependent stat line Sunday, the 23-year-old has been a solid contributor in rebounds and assists at different points over the past several games as well.
Dorsey delivered 21 points (7-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-7 FT), eight rebounds, and five assists in 39 minutes during Monday's 115-103 win over the Thunder. Dorsey hauled in a career high rebounding total while amassing 20-plus points for the second time in the last three contests. Mike Conley (thigh) has missed both of the games that Dorsey has gone off during, with the first of those absences being for rest purposes. For as long as Conley remains sidelined, Dorsey seems destined to continue earning ample minutes.
Dorsey scored a team-high 29 points (11-19 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 2-7 FT) while adding nine assists, three rebounds and a steal in 43 minutes during Friday's 123-119 overtime loss to the Magic. Getting his first start of the season in place of Mike Conley (rest), Dorsey set career highs in points and assists, although his struggles from the charity stripe likely cost the Grizzlies the game. The second-year guard has been seeing more minutes with Avery Bradley (lower leg) sidelined, but unless Conley is also in street clothes, Dorsey's usual role gives him a very limited fantasy ceiling.
