Cabocle was diagnosed with a bone bruise on his left knee and will miss the next 4-to-6 weeks.
The 24-year-old has been sidelined since hyperextending his left knee Monday versus the Santa Cruz Warriors, and he'll now face an extended absence due to the injury. Caboclo is averaging 8.7 minutes in 22 appearances with the Grizzlies this season, but he hasn't seen significant playing time since an eight-game stretch in the first half of December.
Caboclo (knee) won't play Friday against the Cavaliers.
Caboclo will miss his second straight game with left knee soreness, though he's unlikely to see much time even when healthy. He'll continue to be evaluated on a game-by-game basis moving forward.
Caboclo won't play Tuesday against Houston due to left knee soreness.
Caboclo hasn't had much of a role with the Grizzlies so far this season, averaging just 8.7 minutes along with 2.8 points in 22 games, so his absence Tuesday shouldn't have much of an impact on the team's rotation.
Caboclo was assigned to the Hustle on Monday.
Caboclo was dispatched to the G League on Monday in order to get extra reps. He's struggled to find regular minutes within coach Taylor Jenkins' lineup this season and is posting averages of just 2.8 points and 2.0 rebounds in 8.7 minutes per game.
Caboclo's $1.85 million contract for 2019-20 became guaranteed after he remained on the Grizzlies' roster through Tuesday's deadline, Anthony Sain of SI.com reports.
Caboclo hasn't been a fixture in coach Taylor Jenkins' rotation this season with an average of only 9.0 minutes per game over 21 appearances, but the Grizzlies value the length and athleticism he offers as a reserve in the frontcourt. With Jonas Valanciunas, Jaren Jackson and Brandon Clarke filling nearly all the minutes at center or power forward in any given game, however, Caboclo will likely need an injury before he garners any meaningful playing time.
Caboclo finished with zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) in one minute during Sunday's 117-104 win over the Hornets.
Caboclo has combined to play 16 minutes across his last five appearances while scoring a grand total of two points. After averaging 23.5 minutes per game across 34 tilts in 2018-19, Caboclo is no longer part of the regular rotation here in 2019-20. As such, he can be left on waiver wires across all formats.
Caboclo had 12 points (5-14 FG, 0-3 3PT, 2-3 FT), 13 rebounds, three steals and one assist in 29 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 115-107 win at Minnesota.
Caboclo has eight DNP designations and five scoreless performances in 10 outings, so he hasn't been very productive thus far. Even if he posted his best scoring output of the season in this contest, he shouldn't have a lot of upside going forward.
Caboclo was assigned to the Memphis Hustle for Monday's G League game against South Bay.
Caboclo will help out the Grizzlies' G League affiliate for a game or two before presumably returning to the parent club later this week. The move is likely designed to give Caboclo some extra reps, as he's struggled to find rotational minutes recently.
Caboclo put up 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt), five rebounds, two blocks, two steals and one assist in 24 minutes off the bench Monday in the Grizzlies' 107-100 loss to the Rockets.
Caboclo only logged 18 total minutes across the Grizzlies' first five games, but he received his most meaningful run in the rotation of the season Monday with Jaren Jackson (knee) out. The Grizzlies are viewing Jackson's injury as a day-to-day concern for now, so Caboclo could find himself back on the outside of the rotation as soon as Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.
Caboclo (coach's decision) didn't see the court Sunday in the Grizzlies' 134-133 overtime win over the Nets.
Caboclo looked like he had a chance at winning a rotation spot coming out of the preseason, but after playing five minutes in the Oct. 23 opener, the Brazilian big man has failed to leave the bench in either of the last two contests. The 24-year-old probably won't see his playing time outlook improve in the near future, as starting center Jonas Valanciunas played 20 minutes Sunday and should settle around 30 within the next few games once the Grizzlies lift his restriction.
Caboclo finished with 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt), nine rebounds, three blocks and an assist in Sunday's exhibition win over Maccabi Haifa.
The sixth-year forward led the Grizzlies in plus-minus, recording a plus-24 and nearing a double-double in 28 minutes of play. Caboclo had a solid season for Memphis a year ago, finishing with averages of 8.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.0 block in 23.5 minutes per game, while shooting 42.7 percent from the field, 36.9 percent from three and 84.0 percent from the line. While it's unclear what role Caboclo can expect to see in 2019-20, his slow but steady improvement and strong defensive presence could make him an intriguing piece if he's able to find minutes.
Caboclo posted 19 points (7-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, two steals, two blocked shots and an assist across 22 minutes in Saturday's 101-75 win over the Pacers in the Las Vegas Summer League.
Caboclo made his mark as a replacement for the injured Jaren Jackson in the final weeks of the season. While Saturday was an impressive outing for the Brazilian product, the acquisition of Jae Crowder and the return of Jackson don't bode well for him in terms of consistent playing time.
Caboclo will participate in summer league with the Grizzlies.
The 23-year-old saw the biggest role of his career last season, averaging 23.5 minutes across 34 games, which included 19 starts. That said, he still has to prove he's capable of being a rotational player for a competitive squad.
Caboclo scored 21 points (8-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 132-117 win over the Warriors.
The 23-year-old showed flashes of his athleticism and upside down the stretch for Memphis, scoring in double digits in seven of the last nine games, although his streak of games with at least one block ended at eight Wednesday. Caboclo will likely enter next season behind Jaren Jackson (thigh) on the depth chart at the four, but he could still win a significant role on a rebuilding Grizzlies squad if he continues his development.
Caboclo supplied 15 points (6-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal in 26 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Pistons.
Caboclo scored in double-digits for the 10th time this season, managing to contribute in every category Tuesday. While the Brazilian forward has flashed glimpses of his potential since joining the starting lineup, he remains generally raw and inconsistent. That said, Caboclo's managed to translate an increase in playing time over his past 11 games into averages of 12.3 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.2 blocks.
Caboclo contributed 13 points (4-10 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 17 rebounds, four assists, and one block in 39 minutes during Sunday's 129-127 overtime loss to the Mavericks.
Caboclo collected a career high rebounding total while delivering his third double-double across the last seven games. The 23-year-old forward continues to showcase his well-rounded skillset down the stretch this season, and he's likely to continue earning ample minutes across the final two matchups of 2018-19.
Caboclo is in the starting lineup for Friday's game against Dallas.
After coming off the bench Wednesday against Portland, but he'll rejoin the first unit for Friday's clash. He's posted averages of 12.8 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.8 assists in his last five games as a starter.
Caboclo finished with eight points (3-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 20 minutes Sunday in the Grizzlies' 113-96 loss to the Clippers.
After a trio of strong games, Caboclo saw his production dip steadily Sunday, with a sharp downturn in playing time primarily the root of his lackluster line. Foul trouble as well as the blowout nature of the contest contributed to Caboclo's deflated minutes, so it's probably fine to excuse the forward for his underwhelming outing. With a three-game week ahead, Caboclo looks like a decent option in most formats while playing on a Grizzlies squad that has already shut down four players for the season (Jaren Jackson, Kyle Anderson, C.J. Miles and Dillon Brooks) and could be missing four more rotation staples (Mike Conley, Jonas Valanciunas, Avery Bradley and Joakim Noah) again Wednesday in Portland.
Caboclo supplied 12 points (3-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 38 minutes in the Grizzlies' 120-115 win over the Suns on Saturday.
Caboclo continues to make good use of his starting tenure at power forward, with Saturday serving as his third straight double-digit scoring effort. The 2014 first-round pick has been doing a solid job on the boards as well, and he's supplemented his production by going 9-for-15 from three-point range over the last three contests overall.
Caboclo compiled 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt), 13 rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and one steal in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 118-103 loss to the Warriors.
Caboclo finished with a career high rebounding total and recorded his second career double-double. The 23-year-old wing had zero double-doubles through his first 60 games in the league, and now he has collected his first two in consecutive contests. Saturday's matchup with a Suns team that's not known for defense provides Caboclo a chance to put together another gaudy stat line.
