McLemore did not see the floor during Wednesday's 105-99 win over the Knicks.
McLemore has now been a healthy scratch in eight of the last 11 contests. Through his first 21 appearances (between Nov. 11 and Dec. 21), McLemore was only averaging 17.8 minutes per game. Nevertheless, he was at least getting some action every night.
McLemore will come off the bench while Andrew Harrison draws the start at shooting guard for Friday's game against the Raptors.
McLemore had made five consecutive starts, averaging 6.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists across only 19.8 minutes per game. So, considering his minimal role, his shift to the pine may not affect his workload and/or production too much.
McLemore will start Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Rob Fischer of Fox Sports Southeast reports.
McLemore will step into the starting lineup for the first time all season with Chandler Parsons (knee) and Mario Chalmers (ankle) both unavailable due to injuries. He's averaged 6.3 points and 2.1 rebounds across 18.1 minutes per game so far this season.
McLemore was assigned to the Memphis Hustle of the G-League in order to get some rehab minutes, and it looks like he is set to make his Grizzlies debut Saturday. The shooting guard, however, is expected to play a fairly limited role, at least to start the regular season, especially with how productive Tyreke Evans has been off the bench so far.
McLemore (foot) will play during Sunday's G-League game against the Salt Lake City Stars, Jon Roser of Grind City Media reports.
McLemore, who broke his foot back in August, will see his first taste of game action Sunday. The Grizzlies seemingly want him to test out the foot at that level, rather than rushing him into an NBA game. More updates on his performance and status moving forward should arrive following the contest. He's a strong candidate to be the Grizzlies' starting shooting guard once he makes it back to the NBA level.
