Selden is out for Thursday's summer league game against the Thunder for rest, Michael Wallace of the Grizzlies' official site reports.
Selden, who has been tearing up summer league, is being rewarded with a day off for rest. He'll likely compete for reserve minutes in the Grizzlies' backcourt this season.
Selden posted 17 points (6-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, three rebounds and a block in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 94-80 summer league loss to Sacramento.
Continuing to make an argument for a bigger role this season, Selden cashed in another impressive effort. The 23-year-old came into Tuesday's tilt averaging 22.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists across three summer league games. Kyle Anderson and Dillon Brooks will likely garner the majority of the minutes at shooting guard and small forward, but there should be some competition during training camp for reserve minutes on the wing.
Selden posted 20 points (8-15 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 25 minutes during Saturday's 73-70 summer league win over the Pistons.
Through three summer league games, Selden has totaled 66 points, 15 rebounds, nine assists and two steals with just four turnovers. The former Kansas product put up some solid run for the Grizzlies last season, averaging 9.3 points, 1.9 assists and 1.6 rebounds across 19.7 minutes while shooting 40.2 percent from beyond the arc. If he can keep up this momentum through training camp, he could earn himself a bigger role.
Selden made his summer league debut in Tuesday's 95-92 win over the Jazz, totaling 20 points (6-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-8 FT), four rebounds and six assists across 27 minutes.
Selden was held out of the team's summer league opener Monday, but immediately jumped into the top unit during Tuesday's contest and established himself as one of the best players on the court. He didn't shoot the ball extremely well, but still finished with 20 points and typically took whatever the defense gave him. It's unclear how much run the Grizzlies will give Selden during the rest of the summer league schedule, but he could put up some big numbers if he continues to see a hefty workload like he did Tuesday.
Selden (knee) will be shut down for the remainder of the season, Michael Wallace of Grind City Media reports.
Both Selden and Chandler Parsons will miss the team's final four games and will instead head to the west coast to undergo a series of injections in their respective sore knees. Selden was held out of Wednesday's game against New Orleans, but before that he'd played at least 20 minutes in nine consecutive games.
