Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Could start season at power forward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke is a strong candidate to start at power forward at the beginning of the year since Jaren Jackson (knee) is still recovering, Mark Giannotto of The Commerical Appeal reports.

How long Jackson will be sidelined is unclear, but it will provide an excellent opportunity for Clarke to step into a big role early in the season. When seeing at least 24 minutes last season, Clarke averaged 15.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.1 blocks, 1.7 assists and 0.7 steals. Even once Jackson returns, he could be eased back into a full workload and might have to take games off. The situation makes Clarke a possible fantasy sleeper.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Scores 20, drains four treys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke poured in 20 points (8-11 FG, 4-5 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 25 minutes during Saturday's 126-122 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Clarke continued to torment the Trail Blazers, albeit in a loss. He amassed a career high in made threes and scored at least 20 for the third time in three meetings against Portland. He missed just six field-goal attempts (27-of-33) in three games against the Trail Blazers and owns the NBA record for highest field-goal percentage ever posted by a rookie. Assuming Clarke's role increases as a sophomore, he'll likely be a valuable contributor for fantasy purposes.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Puts up 15 points off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke tallied 15 points (7-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot across 29 minutes in Tuesday's 122-107 loss to the Celtics.

The Grizzlies started off with Anthony Tolliver at the four but quickly gave way to Clarke. After Jaren Jackson (knee) went down, it was expected that Clarke would be the primary beneficiary, and although it didn't happen that way initially, it appears he now has a firmer foothold on the job.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Coming off bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke is coming off the bench Friday against the Thunder, Rob Fischer of Fox Sports Southeast reports.

Clarke will head to the bench, possibly to provide the second unit with more energy while Anthony Tolliver gets the start. In his 24 games off the bench since the New Year, Clarke is averaging 11.5 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 23.5 minutes.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Quiet in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke had just six points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3PT) and five rebounds in Wednesday's loss to Utah.

Starting in place of Jaren Jackson Jr., Clarke did add two steals and a block on the defensive end, but he was mostly ineffective as the Grizzlies dropped to 0-4 in seeding play.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Starting in place of Jackson
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke will get the start at power forward Wednesday against the Jazz, Grizzlies sideline reporter Rob Fischer reports

With Jaren Jackson Jr. (knee) done for the season, Clarke will likely fill the starting role for the rest of the team's seeding games and into the playoffs -- should the Grizzlies hang on to the eighth and final spot in the Western Conference. The rookie out of Gonzaga has enjoyed a strong debut season, averaging 12.1 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists, while shooting 62.4 percent from the field, in 22.0 minutes per game. His workload will likely increase beyond the 24.0 minutes per game he averaged over the Grizzlies' last two games.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Superb showing versus Trail Blazers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke collected 21 points (7-8 FG, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 34 minutes during Friday's 140-135 overtime loss to the Trail Blazers.

Clarke was phenomenal, missing only one field-goal attempt and one free throw while filling up the stat sheet across multiple categories. Clarke stepped up with Jonas Valanciunas picking up five fouls in only 14 minutes of action, even scoring the tying basket in the final minute of regulation to help send the game to overtime. Clarke has been incredibly efficient as a rookie and fits well alongside Jaren Jackson, and it should be no surprise if he ends up earning a significant boost in playing time compared to the 21.7 minutes per night he averaged through his first 50 games.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Nears double-double in scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke had 16 points (7-13 FG, 0-1 3PT, 2-2 FT) and eight rebounds in Sunday's scrimmage against Houston.

The rookie came off the bench to play 26 minutes in his second of three scrimmages before seeding games begin. Clarke also added an assist and a steal to his ledger.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Efficient 11 points in scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke posted 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt) and three rebounds in 18 minutes during Friday's 90-83 scrimmage loss to the 76ers.

The time off didn't seem to bother Clarke, who continued his efficient scoring ways. During the regular season, Clarke had eight performances with at least 10 points on 80-plus percent shooting. The best of those was Feb. 12 against the Blazers, when Clarke posted 27 points on 12-of-14 shooting.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Ready to go in Orlando
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Memphis coach Taylor Jenkins said Wednesday that Clarke (quadriceps) is "looking good, feeling good," implying that the rookie will be ready to go for the resumption of the 2019-20 season in Orlando later this month, Michael Wallace of the Grizzlies' official site reports.

Prior to the NBA's shutdown in mid-March, the Grizzlies had been playing without the services of three rotation pieces in Jaren Jackson (knee), Justise Winslow (back) and Clarke, but all are healthy after having three-plus months to recover from their respective injuries. Clarke is expected to reprise his usual duties as Memphis' first big man off the bench in Orlando, capping off what's been a productive rookie year for the No. 21 overall pick. In 50 games prior to the league's hiatus, Clarke averaged 12.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 0.8 blocks in 21.7 minutes per contest while shooting 62.3 percent from the floor and 78.5 percent from the charity stripe.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Expected back when season resumes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke (quadriceps) is expected to be available to play when the NBA resumes its season, Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic reports.

Clarke had already been on track to play before the regular season's initial end date in mid-April, so the fact that the season likely won't be resumed until mid-to-late June in a best-case scenario should provide the rookie with more than enough time to move past the right quadriceps injury. Once play resumes, Clarke will fill his familiar role as the Grizzlies' first big man off the bench. He's been one of the league's most efficient players this season, posting a 67.0 true shooting percentage to go along with averages of 12.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 0.8 blocks in 21.7 minutes per contest.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: No update on return date
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Grizzlies announced Monday that Clarke (quadriceps) remains without a definitive return date, though the club anticipates that he'll play again this season, Chris Herrington of The Daily Memphian reports.

In the same press release, the Grizzlies noted that both Jaren Jackson (knee) and Justise Winslow (back) are expected to return to action "within the next week," so Clarke can safely be ruled out for all three of Memphis' games this week. Prior to getting hurt, Clarke was in the midst of a productive season as the Grizzlies' top big man off the bench. Through his 50 appearances, the 23-year-old rookie is averaging 12.0 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 21.7 minutes while shooting 62.3 percent from the floor, 40.4 percent from distance and 78.5 percent from the charity stripe.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Out at least two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke has a right quadriceps injury and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

The rookie first-round pick was believed to be dealing with a right hip injury, but an MRI instead revealed an issue with his quad. The specifics remain unclear, but Clarke will miss seven games as a result, and possibly more. The timing couldn't be worse for the Grizzlies, as Jaren Jackson (knee) is facing a similar recovery timeline. Josh Jackson, Jordan Bell and Gorgui Dieng figure to see increased run in the meantime.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Won't play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke (hip) won't play in Wednesday's contest against Houston.

The rookie will miss his first contest since Jan. 31 after suffering an apparent hip injury during Monday's loss against the Lakers. With Jaren Jackson (knee) out as well, Josh Jackson will presumably see increased run Wednesday against the Rockets.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Unlikely to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke is doubtful to return Monday against the Clippers due to right hip soreness.

Clarke limped to the locker room in the first half, and the team has since announced that he's not expected to return to action. Kyle Anderson and Gorgui Dieng could see more playing time down the stretch with Clarke likely done for the night.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Impressive outing Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke finished with 22 points (11-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes during Friday's Team World loss to Team USA in the Rising Stars Challenge.

Clarke was one of only four players to exceed 20 points while adding a game-high eight rebounds. The exciting rookie continues to go from strength-to-strength for the Grizzlies and has been a top-75 player this season despite playing only 22 minutes per game. The Grizzlies are seemingly going to be pushing for a playoff spot this season which could have a detrimental impact on Clarke's fantasy ceiling. With that being said, he is a clear must-roster player and there is certainly scope for him to improve as we near the fantasy playoffs.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Matches career high in scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke exploded for 27 points (12-14 FG, 3-5 FT), six rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 111-104 win over the Trail Blazers.

Clarke matched his career high in scoring while missing just two field-goal attempts and turning in an extremely well-rounded line. He has reached double figures in scoring in seven of his last nine appearances. However, his overall production remains fairly volatile given his modest minutes average.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Quiet night in 21 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke accrued nine points (4-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and six rebounds in 21 minutes during Sunday's 106-99 win over the Wizards.

With Jae Crowder and Solomon Hill now out of the picture, the thought was that Clarke could see an uptick in playing time down the stretch of the season. This outing wasn't the best sign for things to come. Before their trade, Crowder played 25 percent of his minutes at power forward, while 30 percent of Hill's minutes came at that spot. Clarke is currently playing 71 percent of his minutes at the four, with the rest being split up between small forward and center. We'll need more than this small sample size before worrying over Clarke's lack of increased opportunity. Regardless, he's been a solid, mid-round fantasy asset.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Underwhelming line Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke ended with just four points (2-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five rebounds, one steal and one block in 23 minutes during Monday's 96-82 victory over Detroit.

Clarke appeared fine after missing the previous game due to a sore hip. Unfortunately, his clean bill of health did not translate into fantasy production for the impressive rookie. He has put together a strong campaign; however, his playing time is typically capped at 20-25 minutes. There is a chance he carves out a more sizable role moving forward, something that could see him elevate into the top 60 at some point. For now, he needs to be rostered in all 12-team formats despite a few inconsistencies.

Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clarke is not listed on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Pistons.

Clarke was held out of Friday's game against the Pels due to a sore hip, but the issue doesn't look to be anything that will cost him multiple games. The rookie has scored in double figures in each of his last four healthy games, and he's averaged 7.3 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.0 blocks in that span.
