Carter, with Ricky Rubio (rest) out, will draw the start at point guard Saturday against the Blazers, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.
Carter will get some developmental minutes Saturday. In his two previous preseason appearances, Carter is averaging 22.6 fantasy points across 22.4 minutes.
Carter was traded to the Suns on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Carter will head west with Kyle Korver as part of a package that brings Josh Jackson and De'Anthony Melton to Memphis. The former West Virginia standout is known for his defensive ability, but he's unlikely to hold down a significant role for the Suns, who signed Ricky Rubio and drafted Ty Jerome in the first round.
Carter is on the Grizzlies' summer league roster.
The 32nd overall pick in the 2018 Draft out of West Virginia, Carter had a relatively small role for the Grizzlies last season, totaling 577 minutes. He's primarily known for his defensive upside, and it's possible Carter will be using summer league to work on his offense.
Carter scored a game-high 32 points (10-18 FG, 8-12 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 26 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 132-117 win over the warriors.
Golden State wasn't exactly putting their best lineup on the court, and Carter took full advantage, posting the best numbers of his brief NBA career. The 23-year-old will head into next season looking to win a spot on the Grizzlies' bench behind Mike Conley -- assuming the veteran point guard isn't traded away -- and Delon Wright.
Carter was assigned to the Memphis Hustle of the G League on Friday.
With the G League playoffs now underway, Carter will join the Hustle for their playoff game against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. The rookie point guard saw some extended playing time off the bench while Mike Conley (thigh) was out, but with the veteran point guard back in action, Carter will get the chance for more minutes in the G League.
Carter contributed two points (1-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt) and two assists in 10 minutes during Saturday's 112-99 loss to the Timberwolves.
Carter has logged 26 minutes across the last two contests, and he has earned double-digit minutes in each of his four appearances here in March. Even so, Carter isn't reliable enough for most formats given that he's not consistently part of the rotation.
Carter was recalled from the G League's Memphis Hustle on Saturday.
Carter has been bouncing back and forth between the Hustle and Grizzlies' roster in recent weeks. He will now be available for Sunday's matchup with the Magic.
Carter was assigned to the G League's Memphis Hustle on Tuesday.
This will be Carter's second trip to the Hustle in as many weeks, and while the NBA team is playing at home in Portland on Tuesday, Carter will be with the G League team for its contest against the AC Clippers. The Hustle actually players three games over the next four days, so it's possible the rookie is with them for the rest of the week.
Carter accumulated 15 points (5-8 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, two blocks, and one steal in 12 minutes during Saturday's 111-81 win over the Mavericks.
Carter amassed career highs in points and made threes while matching his career best block total. This is just the second time this season that Carter has reached double figures in scoring, though the 23-year-old rookie could be in line to earn a more consistent role down the stretch.
Carter was recalled from the G League on Saturday.
Carter has been out of the parent club's rotation over the past three games. However, it's possible he sees the floor Saturday against the Mavericks.
The Grizzlies assigned Carter to the G League's Memphis Hustle on Thursday.
Carter hasn't been included in the parent club's rotation in any of the past three games, so he was sent to the G League to pick up some playing time in the Hustle's matchup Friday with the Santa Cruz Warriors. The rookie could rejoin the Grizzlies ahead of their next game Saturday in Dallas.
The Grizzlies recalled Carter from the G League's Memphis Hustle on Wednesday.
Carter played in the Hustle's 122-113 win over the Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Tuesday, finishing with 22 points (7-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six assists, five rebounds, five steals and one block in 36 minutes. He joined the Grizzlies for morning shootaround and will be available for Wednesday's game against the Bulls, but it's unlikely he'll be included in the rotation after playing three total minutes between Memphis' last three contests.
Carter was assigned to the Memphis Hustle on Tuesday.
Carter's playing time with the Grizzlies had fallen off of late, logging just three total minutes over the previous three contests. As a result, he'll head to the G League where he'll have an opportunity to stay sharp.
Carter (knee) is available to play Friday against the Clippers.
As expected, Carter has been cleared to play after entering the day with a probable tag. In his last four games before the All-Star break, Carter posted averages of 2.5 points, 3.0 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 16.8 minutes.
Carter, due to right knee soreness, is probable Friday against the Clippers.
Carter is coming out of the All-Star break with a sore knee, but it's not expected to affect his availability Friday. Over the past four games, he's averaging 2.5 points, 3.0 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 16.8 minutes.
Carter tallied three points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two steals in 15 minutes Wednesday in the Grizzlies' 122-110 loss to the Bulls.
Since playing 34 minutes in a spot start for an injured Mike Conley on Feb. 1, Carter has faded back into a bench role and now looks to be third on the depth chart at point guard with Delon Wright in the fold. Carter's ability to swing between both backcourt spots should continue to keep him in the rotation on an ongoing basis, but he's still only averaging 13.8 minutes per game since moving back to the second unit.
Carter will start Friday against the Hornets.
With Mike Conley (knee) and Kyle Anderson (shoulder) sidelined, Shelvin Mack and Jevon Carter will occupy Memphis' starting backcourt. It will mark Carter's third start of his career, and in his two prior starts, the rookie averaged 4.0 points, 1.0 rebound and 1.0 assist across 20.5 minutes.
Carter did not see the court during Monday's 95-92 loss to the Nuggets.
Carter was a healthy scratch while reserve guard Shelvin Mack earned 18 minutes off the bench and Mike Conley saw 37 minutes. Carter went scoreless (0-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT) across 26 minutes during Saturday's win over the Pacers, which likely had something to do with his exclusion from the rotation in this one. Carter has earned double-digit minutes nine times this month after appearing in just five games total through October, November, and December. Nevertheless, the rookie point guard hasn't reached double figures in scoring since Dec. 15 and can be left on the waiver wire across most formats.
Carter will start at shooting guard Saturday against the Pacers, Phillip Dean of Fox Sports South reports.
With Garrett Temple (shoulder) expected to be out one-to-two weeks, Carter will start in his stead. It will mark the second start of his career. When seeing at least 20 minutes, the rookie is averaging 7.2 points, 2.8 assists, 2.2 rebounds and 1.8 steals.
Carter posted eight points (3-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five assists, two rebounds, two steals and two blocks across 28 minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Grizzlies' 111-101 loss to the Bucks.
The Bucks turned the game into a runaway victory in the third quarter, which opened up extra run for Carter and the Grizzlies' other second-unit options. The rookie had actually started in place of Kyle Anderson (ankle) in the Grizzlies' previous contest Monday in Houston, but moved to the bench in favor of Justin Holiday. Carter outplayed Holiday on Wednesday and could end up taking on the brunt of the available minutes opened up by Anderson's absence even if he continues to stick in a bench role.
