  • Grizzlies' Steven Adams: Records double-double Monday

    Adams registered 10 points (5-9 FG), 15 rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in 27 minutes during Monday's 101-98 loss to the Warriors.

    Adams made his first start since April 19 and came through with a big performance that included his first double-double of the postseason. The big man corralled a game-high 15 boards, six of which came on the offensive end. He had been nearly invisible in the series prior to Monday, playing just six total minutes in the first three games.

  • Grizzlies' Steven Adams: Draws surprise start

    Adams is starting Monday's Game 4 against the Warriors.

    Adams will enter the starting five after logging just six minutes in Game 3, though he did start a pair of games in the Grizzlies' first-round matchup with Minnesota. Xavier Tillman will come off the bench as a result.

  • Grizzlies' Steven Adams: Minor role in return

    Adams (COVID-19 protocols) played six minutes off the bench Saturday in the Grizzlies' 142-112 loss to the Warriors in Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals, finishing with three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 FT), two rebounds and two assists.

    Adams was cleared to return to action after missing Game 6 of the Grizzlies' first-round series with the Timberwolves and the first two games of the team's current series with Golden State while he was in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Though the Grizzlies eased Adams back into the rotation with a light role, he may not see his playing time pick up substantially while head coach Taylor Jenkins has gotten more comfortable with leaning on Brandon Clarke and Xavier Tillman as small-ball center options.

  • Grizzlies' Steven Adams: Available for Game 3

    Adams will be active for Saturday's Game 3 in Golden State, Damichael Cole of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

    Adams cleared COVID-19 protocols and returned to practice Thursday. The veteran big man fell out of the rotation in the first round and has been sidelined for the first two games of the second-round series, so it's unclear what type of role he may garner in Game 3. Cole added that the Grizzlies still haven't decided on whether or not Adams would return to the starting lineup during his first game back.

  • Grizzlies' Steven Adams: Out of protocols

    Adams (COVID-19 protocols) was at Thursday's practice after being cleared from protocols, Evan Barnes of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

    Adams missed the first two games of the second-round series due to protocols. That said, it's not clear if he'll see the court for any significant amount of time in the remaining games. He was ousted from the rotation early in the Round 1 series against the Timberwolves, playing just seven minutes after Game 1.

  • Grizzlies' Steven Adams: Remains out for Game 2

    Adams (COVID-19 protocols) will not be available for Tuesday's Game 2 against Golden State.

    Adams was placed in the league's protocols prior to Game 6 against Minnesota, so this will mark his third straight absence. With three days off between Game 2 and Saturday's Game 3, Adams will likely be back in time for that contest, but it's unclear how big of a role he'll play after falling out of the rotation in Round 1.

  • Grizzlies' Steven Adams: Ruled out for Game 1

    Adams (COVID-19 protocols) has been ruled out for Sunday's Game 1 against the Warriors.

    Adams missed Friday's Game 6 against the Timberwolves due to the league's health and safety protocols and will be sidelined for at least one additional contest. The 28-year-old fell out of the rotation during the Grizzlies' opening-round matchup against the Timberwolves, so expect Xavier Tillman, Brandon Clarke and Kyle Anderson to continue garnering increased roles for Memphis. Adams' next chance to suit up will be Game 2 on Tuesday.

  • Grizzlies' Steven Adams: Considered day-to-day

    Coach Taylor Jenkins said Saturday that Adams (COVID-19 protocols) is considered day-to-day, Meghan Triplett of GrindCityMedia.com reports.

    Adams missed Friday's Game 6 against the Timberwolves due to the league's health and safety protocols, but he should have a chance to return early in the team's second-round series against the Warriors. Jenkins said he isn't sure when the 28-year-old will be cleared to play, so his status for Sunday's Game 1 against Golden State is up in the air. However, Adams' status shouldn't significantly impact the Grizzlies' rotation.

  • Grizzlies' Steven Adams: Out due to protocols

    Adams is out for Friday's Game 6 against the Timberwolves due to health and safety protocols, Dane Moore of BringMeTheNews.com reports.

    Adams' absence will essentially be irrelevant for Memphis, as he's played just seven combined minutes over the past four games, which includes two DNPs. He could be out of protocols by the start of next round, assuming the Grizzlies advance.

  • Grizzlies' Steven Adams: Will come off bench for Game 3

    Adams won't be in the starting lineup for Thursday's Game 3 contest against the Timberwolves, Rob Fischer of Bally Sports Southeast reports.

    Adams has had a slow start to the playoffs so far, which is why Kyle Anderson is set to replace him in the starting lineup. The center got into foul trouble in Game 1 and only logged three minutes of action in Game 2. The 28-year-old is averaging 2.0 assists and 1.5 rebounds in 13.5 minutes through the first two games of the series.

    Adams had three points (1-4 FG, 1-4 FT), 13 rebounds, eight assists, one block and two steals in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 121-115 overtime loss to the Jazz.

    While the Grizzlies came up short in overtime, Adams supplied a solid rebounds total while chipping in on defense and tying his season high with eight assists. He's now gone eight straight games without scoring in double figures, but Adams is averaging 11.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks in that span.
