  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Expected to have healthy offseason

    Bane (back) will be sidelined for a few more weeks but is expected to have a healthy summer, Drew Hill of The Daily Memphian reports.

    Bane averaged 24.7 points, 5.4 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 34.9 minutes over his first 36 appearances of 2023-24 before injuries derailed his campaign. An ankle injury sidelined Bane from mid-January to mid-March, and he appeared in only five of the ensuing six games before a back issue cost him the final nine contests of the regular season. It was a lost season for the Grizzlies as a whole, as Ja Morant (suspension/shoulder), Marcus Smart (finger/foot) and others also missed extended periods. However, it sounds like the Grizzlies will have a healthy offseason, which bodes well for their chances of bouncing back in 2024-25.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Won't suit up Sunday

    As expected, Bane's regular season is officially over. His campaign was riddled with injuries, as he made just 42 appearances. He finished with averages of 23.7 points, 5.5 assists, 4.4 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 3.3 three-pointers.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Likely out for remainder of season

    Grizzlies head coach Taylor Jenkins said Tuesday that there is a "good chance" Bane (back) won't play for the rest of the season, Damichael Cole of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

    With the Grizzlies already being eliminated from the playoffs, the team is content to shut down two more members of its long-term nucleus in Bane and Jaren Jackson (quadriceps) for the final week of the 2023-24 campaign. Bane will miss his sixth consecutive game Tuesday versus the Spurs and will likely end the season averaging 23.7 points, 5.5 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 34.4 minutes across 42 appearances. The 25-year-old guard showed a promising ability to be a lead scorer while Ja Morant (shoulder) missed most of the season.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Remains out

    Bane (back) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

    Bane will miss a sixth straight game due to back soreness. His next chance to suit up will come during the second half of Memphis' back-to-back set Wednesday in Cleveland, but at this point, it feels like the Grizzlies may shut down their top players for the final week of the regular season.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Will remain sidelined

    Bane (back) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the 76ers.

    Bane's back soreness will extend his absence streak to five games. The star shooting guard's next chance to take the floor will come Tuesday versus the Spurs. While he is out, Luke Kennard (knee) and GG Jackson are candidates to see extended workloads at shooting guard.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Remains out Friday

    Bane (back) is out for Friday's game against Detroit.

    At this point of the season and with the Grizzlies out of the playoff race, it doesn't make sense for Memphis to risk Bane's health down the stretch. This will be his fourth straight absence due to back soreness, and his next chance to play, as unlikely as that might be, will be a Saturday matchup against the 76ers at home.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Absence to continue Wednesday

    Bane (back) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Milwaukee.

    Bane will miss a third consecutive contest due to back soreness. Though the Grizzlies have little left to play for at this stage of the season, the team hasn't definitively shut Bane down. As a result, his status will continue to be updated on a game-by-game basis through the final week and a half of the season.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Won't play Monday

    Bane (back) won't play Monday against Detroit.

    Bane will miss a second consecutive game due to back soreness, with his next opportunity to take the court coming Wednesday against Milwaukee. His absence should open up more opportunities for Scotty Pippen, Jordan Goodwin and Luke Kennard out of the Memphis backcourt.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Won't play Saturday

    Bane is out for Saturday's game versus the Magic due to back soreness.

    Bane's absence will likely open up increased minutes for Luke Kennard, Jake LaRavia and GG Jackson. Bane's next chance to suit up is Monday's matchup with Detroit.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Racks up career-high 16 dimes

    Bane finished with 26 points (8-17 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four rebounds, 16 assists and one steal across 40 minutes during Wednesday's 136-124 loss to the Lakers.

    Bane was Memphis' leading scorer and drained four triples in the loss, but his most impactful contribution came as a passer. The talented guard set a career high with 16 assists, marking his first time reaching double digits in that category over five contests since returning from a 29-game absence March 16. Bane has two other double-digit assist performances this season and is averaging a career-high 5.5 dimes per contest on the campaign.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Modest performance in loss

    Bane amassed 15 points (6-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one steal across 32 minutes during Monday's 128-103 loss to Denver.

    Bane was back in the starting lineup Monday, producing nothing more than a serviceable fantasy line. While it is good to see him back on the floor, it is clear the Grizzlies are not going to roll him out there on a nightly basis. Given the uncertainty regarding his availability, he is a tough player to hold for more than one game at a time.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Returning Monday

    Bane (back) will play and is in the starting lineup Monday night against the Nuggets.

    Bane sat out Saturday's matchup due to back soreness, but he's been given the green light for Monday. He's appeared in only three games since Jan. 12, averaging 17.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.0 steals over that brief stretch.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Questionable for Monday

    Bane (back) is questionable for Monday's game against the Nuggets.

    Bane continues to deal with back soreness, but it's encouraging that he's deemed questionable rather than doubtful on the initial injury report. If he's sidelined again Monday, Scotty Pippen and DeJon Jarreau are candidates to see increased run.
