Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Stuffs stat sheet versus Portland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas contributed 22 points (8-16 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 17 rebounds and six assists in 34 minutes during Saturday's 126-122 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Valanciunas produced a superb stat line, amassing his highest scoring and rebounding totals since the restart. His steadiness this season was a major factor in the team exceeding expectations, and Valanciunas will likely continue to be counted on to gobble up the vast majority of rebounds and dominate the paint for the Grizzlies come next season.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Puts up first career triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas amassed 26 points (11-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 19 rebounds, 12 assists and a block in 33 minutes during Thursday's 119-106 victory over the Bucks.

Valanciunas was incredible in this game against the short-staffed Bucks, recording the first triple-double of his career. Ja Morant joined him with a triple-double of his own, marking the first time in franchise history that two players have achieved the feat in a single game. The Grizzlies will now face the Trail Blazers in the play-in tournament.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Records double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas posted 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-6 FT), 10 rebounds and two steals across 25 minutes in Tuesday's 122-107 loss to the Celtics.

Valanciunas had a good deal of success opposite Boston's cavalcade of big men, but ultimately the Grizzlies couldn't put the pieces together to cement a much-needed win. It's hard to blame Valanciunas, as he's performed quite aptly in the bubble, averaging 13.7 points, 10.5 rebounds, and at least a blocked shot per game.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Scoreless in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas was held scoreless (0-2 FG, 0-1 3PT, 0-2 FT) in Sunday's loss to Toronto.

It was a disappointing effort from the big man, who took only two shots in his 27 minutes of action. He did grab 10 boards to go with an assist, a steal and a block, however.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Posts 19 points, 11 boards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas posted 19 points (8-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 24 minutes during Friday's 121-92 win over the Thunder.

Valanciunas continued his great play as the Grizzlies finally got their first win of the bubble Friday. He's posted a double-double in each of the past four games and has scored 40 total points over the past two.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Posts 21 points, 14 boards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas posted 21 points (8-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 14 rebounds and three assists in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 124-115 loss to the Jazz.

Valanciunas set bubble highs in minutes, points, rebounds and assists Wednesday in the Grizzlies' first game of the restart sans Jaren Jackson (knee). He'll likely continue to have a bigger offensive role for the remainder of the season. In the six other games this season that he's taken at least 17 shots, he's averaged 27.3 points, 15.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steals.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Second straight double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas went for 13 points (5-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 13 rebounds, four blocks and a steal across 30 minutes in Monday's loss to the Pelicans.

Valanciunas has now registered back-to-back double-doubles since the league's restart. He should be a regular contributor on both ends of the court for the Grizzlies as long as he can keep himself out of foul trouble, which is not always the case.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas had 13 points (6-12 FG, 0-1 3PT, 1-2 FT) and 11 rebounds in Sunday's loss to the Spurs.

Starting at his usual center spot, Valanciunas posted a double-double in 28 minutes of action, while also adding two assists and a block. It was an encouraging development for DFS players after Valanciunas was limited to only 14 minutes of action against Portland on Friday, due in large part to foul trouble.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Big double-double in scrimmage win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas went for 15 points (5-12 FG, 0-1 3PT, 5-7 FT) and 15 rebounds in Tuesday's scrimmage against Miami.

The big man needed only 27 minutes to dominate the glass, and he also chipped in a pair of assists. Memphis was a plus-19 with Valanciunas on the floor.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Double-doubles in opening scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas posted 20 points (8-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-6 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 22 minutes during Friday's 90-83 scrimmage loss to the 76ers.

Valanciunas looked to be in midseason form and wasn't slowed down by the 76ers' imposing frontcourt. He had 10 performances with at least 20 points and 10 rebounds during the regular season.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Impressive effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas finished with 27 points (9-10 FG, 9-13 FT), 16 boards, one block and one steal in 36 minutes of a 120-115 loss to Orlando on Tuesday,

Valanciunas turned in another big day, owning the glass while making his presence felt when he got the ball on the offensive side of the floor as well. The rest of his teammates couldn't match his effort, as he had four of his team's seven offensive rebounds in the game. His performance continued his run of good form, with seven double-doubles in his last eight games.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Downs Hawks with big double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas erupted for 27 points (10-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-10 FT), 17 rebounds, three blocks and two assists across 32 minutes in Saturday's 118-101 win over the Hawks.

The Hawks have had trouble slowing down centers all season, and the status quo held true as Valanciunas continued to stay hot. The Grizzlies big man has now recorded double-doubles in six of his last seven outings, averaging 16.6 points and 16.1 boards over that stretch while shooting 62.7 percent from the field and 83.3 percent from the charity stripe. Expect him to continue to benefit from an uptick in production while the Grizzlies play without Jaren Jackson (knee) and Brandon Clarke (quadriceps).

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Logs 14/11 double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas tallied 14 points (7-8 FG), 11 rebounds and an assist across 28 minutes in Friday's 121-96 loss to the Mavericks.

Valaniunas recorded his 31st double-double of the season despite getting bottled up by Kristaps Porzingis in the contest. The Grizzlies are dealing with a decimated frontcourt due to injury, so it will be up to Valanciunas to produce as they try to stay relevant in the playoff race.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Stays dominant on boards Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas posted nine points (4-9 FG, 1-1 FT), 16 rebounds, two assists and one block across 26 minutes during Wednesday's 118-79 victory over the Nets.

Valanciunas has helped keep the Grizzlies afloat over the past five games in the absences of both Jaren Jackson (knee) and Brandon Clarke (quad). During this stretch, he's averaging 15.0 points on 10.8 shots, plus 17.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 27.4 minutes while Memphis has gone 3-2, holding three straight opponents to under 90 points.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Fourth straight double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas finished with 15 points (6-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 15 boards and two assists in 25 minutes of a 125-88 win against the Hawks on Monday.

Valanciunas turned in his fourth straight double-double as his team cruised to an easy win against the overmatched Hawks. The veteran has been a rebounding machine for the Grizzlies, with his 11.0 per game representing the first time in his eight NBA seasons that he's averaged double figures in that category.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Posts strong double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas posted 22 points (10-15 FG, 2-2 FT), 20 rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes during Saturday's 105-88 win over the Lakers.

Valanciunas has now grabbed 20 or more rebounds in back-to-back games, but he's also scoring at a consistent, effective rate with three straight games topping the 15-point mark. He has three straight double-doubles and is ending February on a hot streak.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Grabs career-high 25 rebounds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas notched 13 points (4-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), a career-high 25 rebounds and two blocks in 32 minutes during Friday's 104-101 loss against the Kings.

Valanciunas was an absolute monster on the glass since he grabbed 20 or more rebounds just for the fifth time in his career. His scoring figures have been inconsistent so far, but most of his values crom from what he can do on the glass. The Lithuanian big man has grabbed double-digit boards in nine of 10 games this month, and he is averaging 13.7 boards per contest during February.

Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Double-doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas had 16 points (6-9 FG, 4-5 FT), 10 rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 140-112 loss to Houston.

Valanciunas actually had a decent game despite the fact the Rockets play exclusively small-ball these days. Those with shares in him have to be pleased with the production, especially given his recent performances. Over the past two weeks, Valanciunas is outside the top 200 and has failed to record a block in his last four games. He is going to be better than this moving forward, and right now could be a good time to try and buy low.

February 21, 2020 06:56 PM
Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Tallies 11 boards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas put up eight points (3-6 FG, 0-0 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes during Thursday's 129-125 loss to the Kings.

Eleven rebounds almost qualifies as a disappointment for the big man considering he was coming off back-to-back games with 18. The Lithuanian has posted double digits in the category in six-straight contests but has scored just eight points in three of them. Also of note is that he played a mere 20 minutes, his fewest since Dec. 13.
