Brandan Wright: Released by Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (knee) was released by the Rockets on Friday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Wright signed with the Rockets after being bought out by the Grizzlies and was immediately hit with a right knee injury. The big man underwent surgery on it and would not have been able to return this season, so he will rehab with the Rockets without officially being on their roster. The team will use the open roster spot to sign Le'Bryan Nash.

Rockets' Brandan Wright: To miss another 2-to-3 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (knee) is expected to miss another 2-to-3 weeks, Adam Wexler of KPRC-TV reports.

Wright will be missing a fifth straight game Wednesday and it appears he'll be in line for handful more absences while continuing to progress in his recovery from a right knee injury. If the 2-to-3 week timetable for a return holds true, Wright's earliest return would come March 22 against the Pistons, though this all depends on how his knee responds to his rehabilitation. Once cleared, Wright will likely play a fairly minor role off the bench in the frontcourt and should struggle to post fantasy worthy numbers.

Rockets' Brandan Wright: Not with team Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (knee) is not with the team for Wednesday's game against the Bucks, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

Wright will miss a fifth straight contest Wednesday as he continues to battle back from a right knee injury. He's only played in one game for the Rockets thus far, producing four points, two boards and one block in 15 minutes against the Nuggets on Feb. 25.

Rockets' Brandan Wright: Listed as out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (knee) is listed as out Tuesday against Oklahoma City.

Wright has already missed the last three games with a sore right knee, and all signs point toward another absence Tuesday. The ailment was prevented the veteran from making an impact in Houston after he was bought out by the Grizzlies before the All-Star break.

Rockets' Brandan Wright: Ruled out Saturday vs. Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (knee) will not play in Saturday's game against the Celtics, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

This will be the third straight game Wright is sidelined for, as it appears the knee soreness that's lingering from his Rockets debut may be more serious than it was originally believed to be. Look for Nene Hilario to continue shouldering majority of the minutes at backup center with Wright out of the lineup again.

Rockets' Brandan Wright: Out again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup with the Clippers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Wright made his Rockets debut Sunday against the Nuggets, but came away with some knee soreness and was subsequently held out Monday. He's apparently still dealing with some discomfort and has now been ruled out a day in advance of Wednesday's contest, marking his second straight. Clint Capela (illness) is listed as questionable and could be back in the lineup Wednesday. Otherwise, look for Tarik Black and Nene Hilario to handle the center workload.

Rockets' Brandan Wright: Out with right knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright is listed as out for Monday's game against the Jazz due to right knee soreness.

With Nene (rest) being held out of Sunday's win over the Nuggets, Wright made his Rockets debut, scoring four points and grabbing two rebounds in 15 minutes. Houston is likely just giving the veteran the night off on the second game of a back-to-back set in high altitude, and Nene will once again act as the primary reserve at center in his return to the lineup.

Rockets' Brandan Wright: Makes team debut Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright collected four points (2-3 FG), two rebounds and one block in 15 minutes during Sunday's 119-114 victory over the Nuggets.

Wright made his debut for the Rockets, coming in as the backup to replace the resting Nene. Wright possesses some upside when given minutes but is not in a favorable position in Houston. He is going to be in and out of the rotation for the rest of the season and should be left on the waivers in all leagues.

Rockets' Brandan Wright: Not expected to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (coach's decision) is not expected to play in Wednesday's game against the Kings, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Wright officially signed with the Rockets earlier this week, but the Rockets aren't quite ready to integrate the big man into their rotation. While he'll be active Wednesday, coach Mike D'Antoni indicated he doesn't expect to play Wright, so he can continue to be avoided until we figure out his role after the All-Star break. Either way, Wright is unlikely to see significant minutes once the Rockets are ready to unleash him.

Rockets' Brandan Wright: Out vs. Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright will not be available for Tuesday's game against Minnesota, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Wright was bought out by the Grizzlies over the weekend, and while his contract with the Rockets has been finalized, he'll be held out of Tuesday's game as he makes the move to Houston. The Rockets also play Wednesday against the Kings, so it's possible Wright could make his debut in that contest, though the team could opt to wait until after the All-Star break, during which Wright will have a chance to get acclimated to his new surroundings.

Rockets' Brandan Wright: Bought out by Grizzlies, joins Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was bought out by the Grizzlies on Friday and subsequently agreed to join the Rockets, Tim MacMahon of

With the Grizzlies embracing a youth movement, Wright has been out of the rotation since early January. He got his wish to be bought out and join a contender Friday. It remains to be seen what type of role he will have with the Rockets, but he figures to have a hard time cracking the rotation right away.

Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Collects five points Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright contributed five points (2-3 FG, 1-4 FT), one rebound and one steal across 14 minutes in Wednesday's 105-101 loss to the Pacers.

After being benched for three of the past four games solely based off the coach's decision, it was encouraging to see Wright receive double-digit minutes. The Grizzlies are ravaged by injuries, and even still, it is hard to see Wright gaining significant value moving forward.

Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Third DNP-Coach's Decision in last four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was a healthy scratch during Monday's 120-109 win over the Suns.

Wright, who recently missed five games due to an illness, was removed from the injury report prior to last Monday's bout with the 76ers. However, he has appeared in just one of the four games since, posting four points, four rebounds, and one assist in 12 minutes during last Wednesday's 108-85 loss to the Spurs. Wright isn't bad when he's getting reliable run, but the Grizzlies are likely focusing on funneling playing time to their youngsters given that they are so far out of the playoff picture. As a result, Wright would probably benefit from a trade, though it's unclear how much interest other teams might have in acquiring him.

Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: No longer listed on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (illness) is no longer listed on the injury report for Monday's game against the 76ers.

Wright has sat out the last five games, mostly recently recovering from an illness over the weekend. However, with a few weeks off for rest, he now feels well enough to get back on the court. With four Grizzlies already ruled out and an additional three listed as questionable, Wright has a good chance of seeing an uptick in playing time off the bench Monday. That said, Marc Gasol is healthy and will take on his usual spot in the starting lineup, so Wright will likely continue to operate as his backup.

Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Ruled out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (illness) will not play Saturday against the Pelicans.

Wright has been battling an illness throughout the week, and while he was technically available for Friday's game against the Kings, he ultimately did not see the floor in the Grizzlies' 106-88 win. He's apparently still battling the illness heading into the weekend and will be held out Saturday. Consider the 30-year-old questionable for Monday's matchup with the Sixers.

Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Available Friday vs. Kings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (illness) will be available to play during Friday's contest against the Kings.

Despite not participating in shootaround, apparently Wright is feeling significantly better and will be able to take the floor Friday. He hasn't seen the floor over the past three games.

January 19, 2018 12:20 PM
Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Unlikely to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (illness) did not participate in shootaround and is doubtful to play in Friday's game against the Kings, Michael Wallace of reports.

Wright looks to be on pace to miss his second straight contest due to an illness and he remains without a clear timetable for a return. Marc Gasol, who also was absent Wednesday with an illness, is expected to play, however, and he should take on most of the minutes at center with Wright likely out of the lineup. Wright's next opportunity to return will be Saturday in New Orleans.

Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Listed as questionable for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (illness) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Kings.

Wright missed Wednesday's game with an illness and the Grizzlies will wait and see how he feels during Friday's morning shootaround before determining if he can make a return to the court. Marc Gasol (illness) is also questionable, so there could potentially be added minutes available if Wright were to be cleared. That said, if Gasol plays, Wright will remain off the fantasy radar in both season-long and DFS formats.

Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Won't play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Knicks for an undisclosed reason, Michael Wallace of reports.

With Marc Gasol (illness) also ruled out, the Grizzlies will have to likely rely on a heavy dose of Deyonta Davis at center. Jarell Martin is also a candidate to see some extra run in the frontcourt.

Grizzlies' Brandan Wright: Scores eight points in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright had eight points (3-5 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, and one block in 10 minutes during Wednesday's 105-102 win over the Pelicans.

Wright has seen double-digit minutes in 19 of 24 appearances this season. However, three of those single-digit helpings have come in the last five tilts. With the Grizzlies already falling out of the playoff race, it shouldn't be a surprise if the team opts to give younger big men like Deyonta Davis and Jarrell Martin a few extra minutes here and there. In other words, Wright should only be relied on to provide modest production in the very deepest leagues.
