Brooks has managed to score 17 or more points in seven of his last 10 games but he's struggled to contribute in other areas of his game, averaging just 2.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists over that span . He has made a difference on the defensive end, collecting a steal in 11 consecutive outings.
Brooks (thigh) posted 19 points (6-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two rebounds, one steal and one block across 28 minutes in Thursday's 122-94 win over the Clippers.
Brooks re-entered the starting five after missing the previous three games with the thigh injury, resulting in Brandon Clarke shifting to a bench role. The wing overcame a poor start to the contest to finish with a strong night as a scorer, but as usual, his production was lacking in other categories. He's best viewed as a two-category contributor (points and three-pointers) in 12-team leagues.

Brooks had been a game-time decision after missing the last the last three games due to right thigh soreness, but he's ready to return.

Brooks (thigh) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Clippers.
The 25-year-old has sat out the past three games with soreness in his right thigh, but he may be able to retake the court Thursday. Desmond Bane should continue to enjoy an increased role for Memphis if Brooks is unable to return to action.
Brooks (thigh) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Mavericks.
Brooks will be sidelined for a third consecutive contest due to a thigh injury. Desmond Bane, Kyle Anderson and John Konchar should continue to see increased run for the Grizzlies in his absence.

Brooks (thigh) is out Saturday against the Suns.
Brooks will miss a second straight game as he recovers from a thigh injury. He's part of a plentiful Grizzlies injury report, so Memphis will have to use many deep rotation players against the Suns. Desmond Bane, John Konchar and Sean McDermott could benefit from the various absences.

Brooks is questionable for Friday's game against the Pistons due to right thigh soreness.
Brooks scored 17 points over 30 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Thunder, but he's now dealing with right thigh soreness that puts his status for Friday's matchup into jeopardy. If he's unable to play De'Anthony Melton (shoulder), Grayson Allen and Desmond Bane could see increased time on the court.
Brooks registered 17 points (5-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 7-7 FT), a rebound, an assist and a steal across 30 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Thunder.
Brooks had a rough night shooting the rock, missing his three attempts from behind the arc and only converting five of his 13 field-goal attempts, but his efficiency from the charity stripe saved what was otherwise a poor fantasy performance. Brooks has scored 15 or more points in five of his six games, though, so he remains a decent asset even when his shot isn't falling.
Brooks registered 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-6 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and a steal across 29 minutes in Tuesday's loss against the Pelicans.
Brooks was one of three Memphis players to record 15-plus points in this game despite the blowout loss, and he was quite sharp from deep, draining at least four treys for the third time in his last five games. Brooks has made 46.8 percent of his three-point attempts over that five-game stretch -- marking a sharp improvement from his previous shooting woes this season.
Brooks produced 22 points (10-20 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, two assists and two steals across 29 minutes in Sunday's 124-110 win over the Kings.
Brooks scored most of his points with a scorching 18-point, 18-minute stretch and looked like the number-one guy for the Grizzlies, a role usually occupied by Ja Morant. No one can complain about Brooks' recent four-game stretch, during which he's averaged 19.0 points, 2-5 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game.
Brooks delivered 22 points (8-20 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal across 37 minutes in Monday's loss against the Raptors.
Brooks has passed the 20-point mark in six games already, and he has accomplished that feat in two of his last four contests. Brooks can be effective both as a second-best or third-best scoring option, and while he's capable of putting up big numbers on a nightly basis, his lack of consistency certainly conspires against his upside.
Brooks recorded 25 points (10-18 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, three steals, one assist and one block across 28 minutes Tuesday in the Grizzlies' 134-116 loss to the Pacers.
After Ja Morant failed to get going and the Grizzlies fell behind by 21 at halftime, Brooks stepped up to keep Memphis alive with 14 third-quarter points. Though the Grizzlies ultimately couldn't keep pace with Indiana, Brooks at least showed some sign of life after a string of dud performances. Over his previous five games, Brooks averaged 10.0 points, 3.0 assists, 2.0 rebounds, 1.0 three-pointers and 0.8 steals while shooting a grisly 30.2 percent from the field and 23.8 percent from downtown.
Brooks finished with 13 points (4-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), one assist, one steal and one block across 23 minutes Monday in the Grizzlies' 133-102 win over the Spurs.
The strong showing from the free-throw line helped Brooks get to double figures in the scoring column, but he otherwise turned in an empty stat line in the blowout win. Since Ja Morant returned from a Grade 2 left ankle sprain Jan. 16, Brooks predictably has taken a back seat as a scorer for the Grizzlies, and his poor shooting over the last four games has further undermined his offensive production. He's averaging 10.3 points on 31.3 percent shooting from the field and 25 percent shooting from downtown in those contests.
Brooks registered three points (1-10 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds and three assists across 22 minutes during Monday's 108-104 win over the Suns.
Shooting woes for Brooks hit a new low point as he went for a season low of three points while the team was still able to sneak out its fifth win in a row. The 24-year-old forward has never been a particularly dead-eyed shooter, but things have taken a turn for the worse so far this season as he's at 36.9 percent from the floor at 30.5 percent from downtown through 13 games. The 22 minutes for Brooks also marked a season low and that trend could continue if the shooting doesn't improve.
Brooks notched 11 points (5-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, an assist and two steals across 27 minutes in Saturday's win over the 76ers.
Brooks got off to a strong start this season and averaged 19.2 points per game over his first five appearances, but he has cooled off since then and has scored 13 points or fewer in five of his seven subsequent contests. What's even more worrisome is perhaps the fact that he is shooting just 35.2 percent from the field and 29.3 percent from three-point range during that seven-game stretch.
Brooks posted nine points (4-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt), two rebounds and six assists across 28 minutes in Wednesday's win at Minnesota.
Brooks was coming off back-to-back 20-plus-point performances, but he was unable to record such feat for a third straight time due to his struggles from the floor -- he shot 26.6 percent from the field here and was vastly outplayed by De'Anthony Melton, who ended with 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting. Brooks should remain Memphis' go-to player on offense while Ja Morant (ankle) remains out, but he needs to improve his shooting numbers. Over his last five appearances, he's made just 38.7 percent of his shots and 31.3 percent of his three-point attempts.
Brooks registered 21 points (6-15 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal across 33 minutes in Monday's 101-91 win over the Cavaliers.
Brooks has settled as Memphis' go-to guy on offense in absence of Ja Morant (ankle), and he has scored 20 or more points in his last two games while reaching that feat four times already. Brooks also played more than 30 minutes for the first time since Dec. 28, and he should continue to be one of the Grizzlies' main scoring threats in Morant's absence.
Brooks recorded 24 points (10-19 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and four rebounds across 28 minutes in Friday's win over the Nets.
Brooks has taken on a bigger role offensively since Ja Morant went down with an ankle injury, and he responded here -- he posted his third 20-point game of the season while recording a season-high in scoring. He has been struggling with his shot of late, as Brooks had made just 34.2 percent of his field-goal attempts prior to this game, but his performance could be the confidence booster he's been looking for in recent days.
