  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Takes seat for Game 4

    Tillman isn't starting Monday's Game 4 against the Warriors.

    Tillman has started the last six contests for the Grizzlies, but Memphis will switch up the starting five with Ja Morant (knee) ruled out for this one. The Michigan State product should still see a sizeable workload Monday evening.

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Starting Game 4

    Tillman will start Game 4 against the Timberwolves on Saturday, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports.

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Efficient off bench

    Tillman provided 13 points (6-7 FG, 1-1 FT) and seven rebounds in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 124-96 win over Minnesota.

    Tillman recorded his second-highest scoring output of the season. The second-year center has seen a huge uptick in minutes since the end of March and he's been making the most of them. Look for him to stay productive in Game 3.

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Meager output in loss

    Tillman closed with five points (2-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two steals over 35 minutes during Sunday's 139-110 loss to the Celtics.

    With Steven Adams (ankle) out and Brandon Clarke (thigh) only available in an emergency, Tillman drew his second start of the season. The second-year big man struggled from the field but made the most of his increased opportunity by registering multiple steals. Tillman made 53 appearances during the regular season and averaged 4.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 13.2 minutes across 53 appearances.

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Starting Sunday

    Tillman is starting Sunday's game against the Celtics, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    Tillman came off the bench in each of his last three appearances and averaged 4.3 points in 9.3 minutes per game. He'll start in Sunday's regular-season finale since Steven Adams (ankle) is out.

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Garners first start of season

    Tillman is in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Suns, Rob Fischer of Bally Sports Southeast reports.

    Starting center Steven Adams (calf) will not play Friday, so Tillman will join the starting lineup for the first time all season. Tillman has made some noise of late, averaging 9.7 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists over his last three appearances.

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Posts season-best point total

    Tillman contributed 16 points (6-9 FG, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, one block and one steal over 24 minutes during Thursday's 133-103 victory over the Pacers.

    Memphis built a 26-point lead by halftime and extended the margin to 36 entering the fourth quarter, giving Tillman a chance to see more than his usual share of playing time. The second-year center responded with one of his best performances of the season, posting a season-high 16 points. Tillman entered the game averaging only four minutes over his previous eight appearances, so he doesn't figure to play a big role for the team down the stretch.

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Absent from injury report

    Tillman (personal) isn't on the injury report ahead of Tuesday's game against New Orleans.

    Tillman was unavailable for Sunday's game against Houston while tending to a personal matter, but he'll be back if needed for Tuesday's matchup. He hasn't played much of a role in the Grizzlies' rotation of late, averaging 2.9 points and 1.6 rebounds in 6.1 minutes over his last seven matchups.

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Unavailable Sunday

    Tillman is unavailable for Sunday's contest against the Rockets due to personal reasons.

    Tillman has played 11 total minutes over his last four appearances, so his absence shouldn't impact Memphis' rotation. His next chance to suit up will come Tuesday against the Pelicans.

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Plays in garbage time

    Tillman played the final 1:18 of Monday's 118-105 win over the Spurs, recording no statistics during his time on the court.

    Tillman had been battling a thigh injury heading into the All-Star break, but he was cleared from the Grizzlies' injury report when the team opened its second-half schedule last week. However, Tillman went unused off the bench in the Grizzlies' first two games out of the break before finally getting the chance to play in garbage time Monday. The second-year player out of Michigan State looks like he'll be out of the rotation with Brandon Clarke and Kyle Anderson locked in as the top reserves in the frontcourt behind starters Jaren Jackson and Steven Adams.

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Not on injury report

    Tillman (thigh) is not listed on the Grizzlies' injury report ahead of Thursday's game at Minnesota.

    A thigh injury kept Tillman out of the final five games before the break, but he'll return to availability Thursday as the Grizzlies look to stay hot. Even before the injury, the Michigan State product's role had begun to slip, so it's unclear if he'll be a part of the regular rotation down the stretch.

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Out again Wednesday

    Tillman (thigh) has been ruled out for Wednesday's contest against the Trail Blazers.

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Won't play Thursday

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Small role off bench

    Tillman contributed six points (3-3 FG), three rebounds and one steal over 16 minutes during Sunday's 104-91 loss to Dallas.

    With Brandon Clarke (back) and Kyle Anderson (COVID-19 protocols) sidelined, Tillman saw a slightly increased role off the bench. However, it still wasn't sizable enough to produce a stat line worthy of fantasy consideration. Over his last eight games, Tillman has averaged 3.6 points and 2.5 rebounds in 11.4 minutes.

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Lifted from injury report

    Tillman (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) isn't included on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Clippers.

    Tillman has missed Memphis' last five contests while in the protocols, so he likely won't be asked to play major minutes in his first game back in action. The second-year big man hasn't been a big contributor when active this season, as he cleared the 20-minute mark only four times in his last 13 appearances before entering the protocols.

    Tillman (COVID-19 protocols) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Clippers.
