Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Leads bench in Friday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane scored 16 points (6-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-3 FT) while adding five rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes off the bench during Friday's 133-129 overtime loss to the Knicks.

The rookie continues to provide a spark for the Grizzlies, and Bane was the only member of the second unit to score in double digits or drain a three-pointer. He isn't seeing consistent enough minutes to be an asset in most season-long formats, but Bane has demonstrated he has the upside to carry some DFS intrigue.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Pops for 15 off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane scored 15 points (6-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt) while adding three rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in 22 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's win over the Heat.

The rookie continues to show flashes of his upside, scoring in double digits five times in the last 10 games and leading the Grizzlies' second unit in scoring Tuesday. Over that stretch, Bane has averaged 10.0 points, 3.9 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.8 threes and 0.7 steals in 22.7 minutes -- numbers that won't be on the radar in most redraft formats but do hold value in dynasty leagues.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Starting vs. Jazz
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane will start in Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

As expected, Bane will replace Grayson Allen (hip) in the Grizzlies' starting lineup Wednesday. The 22-year-old is averaging 9.5 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game while shooting 45.8 percent from three. He should see plenty of run with the Grizzlies' first unit as long as Allen remains sidelined.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Provides spark in win Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane posted 17 points (7-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 28 minutes in the Grizzlies' 120-110 win over the Rockets on Monday.

Bane was magnificent Monday, but he's seen a dramatic drop in his production since moving to a bench role March 17. In the eight games that have followed, he has only scored in double figures twice, averaging 8.1 points to go with 3.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 19.2 minutes. On the whole, the rookie has been a pleasant surprise, but he's not worth rostering in standard 12-team leagues at the moment.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Scores 13 in overtime win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane scored 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt) and added three rebounds in a 132-126 victory over the Celtics on Monday.

Bane was very efficient from both the field and from three in Memphis' overtime win. The guard has been solid since returning to a bench role four games ago, scoring at least eight points and making multiple threes in each contest. Bane has been the most reliable shooter off the Grizzlies' bench this season, shooting a team-high 48.9 percent from distance in games he doesn't start.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Moves to bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane will come off the bench Wednesday versus the Heat, Evan Barnes of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

The 22-year-old started the past seven games but will shift to the bench after putting up zero points (0-3 3Pt) one rebound and one assist in 22 minutes Monday at Phoenix. Bane should still be involved off the bench while Grayson Allen joins the starting five.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Hits season-high five threes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane scored 20 points (7-13 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 31 minutes in a 127-112 victory over the Wizards on Wednesday.

Bane earned another start with Grayson Allen (concussion) out of the lineup and established a new career high in scoring. The guard was quite involved in the offensive game plan, as his 13 shot attempts ranked third on the team. In seven starts this season, Bane has averaged 12.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 steals per game.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Productive in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane amassed 15 points (6-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, three steals, one assist and one block in 28 minutes during Sunday's 133-84 victory over the Rockets.

Bane moved into the starting lineup with Grayson Allen (concussion) ruled out. He certainly made the most of his opportunity and helped lead the Grizzlies to their biggest win of the season. Bane has proved the ability to be a fantasy contributor when he is afforded significant playing time and there is certainly a case to be made for him sticking with the opening five. However, that seems unlikely at this point and so his value is almost certainly going to be short-lived.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: In starting five Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane will start Sunday's game against the Rockets.

With Grayson Allen (concussion) ruled out, the Grizzlies will roll with the rookie at the other guard spot next to Ja Morant. It will be the fourth start of the season for Bane, who's played at least 20 minutes in each of the last 13 contests.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Solid performance off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane had 12 points (4-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and two rebounds across 23 minutes off the bench in Monday's loss against the Mavericks.

Bane has been a regular scoring threat off the bench for the Grizzlies, as he has scored in double digits in 10 of his last 12 appearances. His upside is hard-capped due to the fact that he regularly plays under 30 minutes and routinely comes off the bench, but he can be a valuable streaming alternative on most nights due to his scoring ability.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Starting vs. Suns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane will start Saturday's game against the Suns, Rob Fischer of Fox Sports Southeast reports.

The Grizzlies have an extensive injury report, which will force Bane into the starting five. In his previous two starts this season, he has averaged 15.5 points, 2.5 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 26.0 minutes.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Plays off bench in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane (personal) played 25 minutes and compiled 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two steals and one assist Friday in the Grizzlies' 109-95 win over the Pistons.

Before missing the Grizzlies' most recent four games to tend to a personal matter, Bane had drawn two straight starts, logging 26 minutes in both of those outings. While his playing time was similar in his return to action Friday, Bane moved to the bench while Grayson Allen maintained his spot in the starting five. Allen endured a rough night from the field (six points on 2-for-8 shooting), so it wouldn't be surprising if Bane re-entered the starting five for the second half of the Grizzlies' back-to-back set Saturday versus Phoenix.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane (personal) isn't on the injury report for Friday's game against the Pistons.

Bane missed the last four games for a personal matter, but he should return to action Friday. With Dillon Brooks (thigh) and De'Anthony Melton (shoulder) questionable for the matchup against Detroit, Bane could see an increased role for Memphis on Friday.

February 17, 2021 02:12 PM
Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Ruled out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane (personal) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

A personal matter will keep Bane sidelined for a fourth consecutive game. With De'Anthony Melton (shoulder) also sidelined, expect Grayson Allen to continue holding onto a larger role.

February 15, 2021 06:24 PM
Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Still out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane (personal) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

Bane will be unavailable for the third straight game due to a personal issue. Grayson Allen and John Konchar should continue to have increased roles for the Grizzlies.

February 13, 2021 08:16 PM
Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane (personal) will not play Sunday against the Kings.

A personal issue will cause Bane to miss a second straight game. In his absence, John Konchar and Grayson Allen could again see expanded roles.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Won't play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane (personal) will not play Friday against the Lakers.

Bane is set to miss his first game of the season due to personal reasons. The 22-year-old had been playing well of late, scoring in double figures in eight of the last nine games. John Konchar could see increased minutes with Bane sidelined.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Keeps shooting well in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane tallied a career-high 18 points (6-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with two assists, two steals and one rebound across 26 minutes Wednesday in the Grizzlies' 130-114 win over the Hornets.

With Brandon Clarke (calf) out of the lineup again, Bane picked up a second straight start on the wing while Kyle Anderson shifted up to power forward. Bane was one several Grizzlies to catch fire from distance, as Memphis poured in a franchise-record 23 treys to end its four-game losing streak. At least in Bane's case, the efficient shooting from downtown wasn't out of the ordinary. Through his first 20 NBA games, Bane is converting on 48.2 percent of his 4.3 three-point attempts per contest.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Drawing first NBA start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane will start Monday's game against the Raptors.

Memphis will elect to switch up their starting five by throwing Bane into the mix, taking the place of the injured Brandon Clarke (calf). Gorgui Dieng made the spot start for Clarke on Saturday but will head to the bench for Monday's contest.

Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Team-high 16 points from bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bane recorded 16 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), three assists, a rebound, a steal and a blocked shot across 27 minutes in Thursday's 115-103 loss to the Rockets.

Bane got an increased run when Dillon Brooks got into foul trouble and generated an encouraging result in the loss. Getting significant time will be a challenge for the rookie due to the logjam of guards on the depth chart, but since the team's return to action Jan. 30, the TCU product has averaged 24:45 on the court over the last four games.
