Grizzlies' Ben McLemore: Fractures foot, out 12 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore suffered a non-displaced fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his right foot during a pick-up game in Los Angeles and will be sidelined for 12 weeks after undergoing surgery Tuesday, Chris Herrington of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

The Grizzlies will be without McLemore -- who they signed to a two-year, $10.7 million contract over the summer -- until at least early November. While the 6-foot-6 shooting guard hasn't had a noteworthy career up to this point, Memphis lacks depth at the position, seemingly giving McLemore plenty of opportunities to prove himself. He isn't projected to miss any regular season games, though will miss out on valuable offseason time to work on his game. Overall, this development shouldn't affect his fantasy stock too much, but those who take a chance on him probably shouldn't be surprised if he starts off slow or misses games here and there with lingering soreness.

Grizzlies' Ben McLemore: Agrees to two-year deal with Memphis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore agreed Sunday with the Grizzlies on a two-year, $10.7 million contract, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.

After the Kings declined to tender a qualifying offer to McLemore in June, the 6-foot-6 guard became an unrestricted free agent and didn't long to find a new home for the first time in his NBA career. Given the dearth of talent the Grizzlies have at the shooting guard spot, McLemore could conceivably vie for a starting role, despite his often-disappointing production with Sacramento during his first four seasons in the league. McLemore did at least exhibit some improved efficiency from distance in 2016-17, knocking down a career-best 38.2 percent of his three-point tries while also chipping in 8.1 points and 2.1 rebounds in 19.3 minutes per game.

Kings' Ben McLemore: Not extended qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore will become an unrestricted free agent as a result of the Kings declining to extend him a qualifying offer, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports.

McLemore has seen his role fluctuate with the Kings since being drafted with the seventh pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. He actually ended up seeing his smallest workload of his career last season, playing just 19.3 minutes per game and starting only 26 of the 61 games he participated in. At this point, Sacramento management seems dead-set on giving Buddy Hield the keys at shooting guard. Plus, the team agreed to terms with Bogdan Bogdanovic on Wednesday, a shooting guard who they traded for in June of 2016 and spent last season overseas. Though Sacramento may not have an interest in keeping McLemore, he shot a solid 38.2 percent from beyond the arc last during the 2016-17 season and has shown consistent improvement from that distance over his four-year career, which should catch the eye of a fair number of teams.

Kings' Ben McLemore: Back to bench for finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore was returned to the bench for the Kings' regular-season finale Wednesday against the Clippers.

Veteran Arron Afflalo was reinserted to the starting lineup for the club's final tilt, playing for just the third time in the team's last 10 contests. McLemore could see a dip in his minutes as a result, but will still likely see enough time to provide some fantasy value.

Kings' Ben McLemore: Narrowly misses double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore started at small forward and put up 13 points (3-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-9 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and one steal across 27 minutes in a 129-104 win over the Suns.

While those who rolled with McLemore in DFS lineups may have expected a little more scoring, it's hard to be disappointed with his line, as he still managed to tie his season high in rebounds. The former lottery pick is averaging 15.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.7 three-pointers and 1.1 assists in 24.9 minutes per game over the last seven contests and should be in store for a similar amount of playing time in the season finale Wednesday against the Clippers. Coach Dave Joerger has been regularly resting some of the team's veterans for the last few weeks, but McLemore hasn't been included among that group of players.
