Weber went off for 15 points (7-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three steals, and one assist in 34 minutes during Monday's 118-115 loss to the Nets. Weber led the team in minutes and steals while contributing a career high scoring total. He has seen 20-plus minutes in each of the last three games, and Weber is getting the nod over veteran backup point guard Mario Chalmers, who was a healthy scratch.
Weber will sign a 10-day contract with the Grizzlies, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports. Weber spent 13 games with the Rockets earlier this season, averaging 2.0 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 9.1 minutes per game. The signing makes sense considering the plethora of injuries the Grizzlies are currently dealing with in their backcourt. As a result, Weber could find himself in a prominent role off the bench as soon as he lands in Memphis.
Weber recorded 27 points (9-13 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and three steals during Saturday's win over Reno. The VCU product had a tremendous game, leading all scorers and producing his second double-double this season. Weber has been a consistent scorer all season long and has seen most of his scoring in each outing end up past the 20-point mark. The 6-2 guard is averaging a terrific 17.7 points, 7.4 assists and 6.8 rebounds per game.
Weber will be waived by the Rockets on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. Weber has seen action in 13 games with the Rockets while playing on a two-way deal, averaging 2.0 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 9.1 minutes. However, with the max amount of days he could potentially stay activated with the big club slowly creeping closer, Weber will be waived and then replaced by Markel Brown. If Weber can't find any interest elsewhere in the NBA right away, look for him to remain in the G-League with the hope of earning a call up later this season.
Weber finished with two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists across 16 minutes in Wednesday's 116-98 win over the Magic. With James Harden (hamstring) expected to miss anywhere from 2-to-6 weeks due to the injury he suffered on New Year's Eve, Weber looks like he'll be one of several players to benefit from increased minutes. The 25-year-old acted as the primary backup to starting point guard Chris Paul on Wednesday, with third-string option Bobby Brown logging a lone minute in garbage time. A 39.8 percent career shooter, Weber doesn't offer much upside on the offensive end, but his on-ball defense could be enough to keep him ahead of Brown in the rotation.
