Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Invisible 15 minutes Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton posted zero points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one block across 15 minutes during Friday's 121-96 loss to the Mavericks.

The only stats to Melton's name Friday were one block and two turnovers, making it one of his worst performances of the season. It was the first time he failed to make a field goal since Nov. 25 when he saw just six minutes in a loss to the Pacers. He'll look to bounce back against the Hawks on Saturday.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Fails to capitalize in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton had nine points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and one steal in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 140-112 loss to the Rockets.

Melton shifted into the starting lineup Wednesday but struggled to get anything going, recording a team-worst minus-26 in his 24 minutes. Poor performance aside, this is certainly an interesting development, although it may have been simply a matchup-based move. If Melton does remain in the starting lineup, he certainly has to be viewed as a 12-team pickup in most formats.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Gets start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton will start Wednesday's game against the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Coach Taylor Jenkins will opt for a smaller starting lineup with usual starting power forward Brandon Clarke out due to a quadriceps injury. Melton, who will join the first unit in Clarke's stead, has averaged 8.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.3 steals in 18.7 minutes so far this year.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Another quiet night Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton produced just five points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound and one assist in 19 minutes during Monday's 124-97 loss to the Clippers.

Melton struggled again Monday, failing to deliver in the blowout loss. The Grizzlies are on a three-game losing streak right now and things are certainly not looking positive regarding their playoff aspirations. Despite sitting in the eighth-seed, a number of injuries and poor play could spell an end to their hopes of post-season action. Melton is a tough hold in 12-team leagues at the moment and unless you can play the waiting game, you might need to move on.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Scores season high in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton totaled 24 points (5-10 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 10-10 FT), six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 23 minutes during Thursday's 129-125 loss to Sacramento.

Melton came off the bench to lead the Grizzlies in points with his highest-scoring game of the year. He only missed one of his five attempts from beyond the arc and was also perfect on all 10 of his free-throw attempts. Additionally, the 21-year-old turned in his second-best rebounding game of the past month.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Scores 12 in 26 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton managed 12 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-5 FT), four rebounds and four assists in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 111-104 win over the Trail Blazers.

Melton finished with almost as many turnovers (three) as assists but scored more points in this one than in his last two games combined (11). He had shot 27.3 percent or worse from the field for four straight games prior to this one. Nevertheless, Melton was providing pretty well-rounded production during December and January, and the shakeup at the trade deadline could potentially result in more playing time for the sophomore going forward.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Five steals vs. 76ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton posted four points (1-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five steals, three assists and two rebounds across 23 minutes during Friday's 119-107 loss to the 76ers.

Melton has struggled shooting the ball lately, hitting just 24.2 percent of his looks across the past four games. But he continues to be one of the better defenders in the NBA. He's one of just three players this season (minimum 400 minutes played) to have a steal rate of at least 3.5 percent and a block rate of at least 1.5 percent -- the other players being Matisse Thybulle and Gary Payton. And Melton has the most points (307), rebounds (144) and assists (117) of that group.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Production trending down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton finished with two points (1-6 FG), one assist and one steal in 14 minutes Monday in the Grizzlies' 96-82 win over the Pistons.

Even while working in a bench role that often capped his minutes, Melton had emerged as a worthy roster option in 12-team leagues in mid-to-late January thanks to his well-rounded fantasy profile. The sore left hand that cost him two games a week ago appears to have stunted his momentum, however. Melton has knocked down just four of 13 attempts from the field in his two games since returning while averaging 4.5 points, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steals and 0.5 rebounds.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton (hand) will play Friday against the Pelicans, Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic reports.

Despite originally being deemed doubtful, Melton will end up playing through left hand soreness. In January, he's averaging 9.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.2 steals in 20.4 minutes.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Upgraded to questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton (hand) was upgraded to questionable for Friday's game at New Orleans.

The 21-year-old was originally considered doubtful for Friday's contest after missing the last two games with the left hand issue, but he's now questionable after taking part in the morning shootaround. Melton's availability could be significant for the Grizzlies since Marko Guduric and Jaren Jackson are suspended and Brandon Clarke (hip) is doubtful.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Participates in shootaround
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton (hand) went through the morning shootaround but is still considered doubtful for Friday's game against the Pelicans, Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic reports.

Melton picked up the hand injury earlier this week and is expected to miss his third consecutive contest Friday, but his participation at the shootaround remains a good sign. Tyus Jones and John Konchar could see increased backcourt run with Jaren Jackson and Marko Guduric suspended in New Orleans.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Doubtful Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton (hand) is doubtful for Friday's contest against New Orleans.

It appears that the second-year guard will miss a third straight contest, as Melton continues to recover from a left hand injury. Tyus Jones and Marko Guduric will presumably continue to see increased run Friday against New Orleans if indeed Melton is sidelined.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Still out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton (hand) is out for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Melton will miss his second straight contest as he recovers from left hand soreness. In his absence, Kyle Anderson and Tyus Jones could see more usage.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Unavailable Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton isn't playing Tuesday against the Nuggets due to left hand soreness.

The Grizzlies indicated Melton's absence is precautionary, though the injury wasn't announced until after Tuesday's 8 p.m. ET tipoff. Marko Guduric is seeing some early run off the bench versus the Nuggets during the first quarter in his absence. Melton should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks until the team provides an update.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Another quality line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton tallied 12 points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, four assists and one block in 26 minutes Tuesday in the Grizzlies' 121-110 win over the Rockets.

Melton doesn't look like he'll have a path to 30 minutes most nights while star rookie Ja Morant is healthy, but the second-year guard has proven he can still have some fantasy viability in 12-team leagues in a more limited role off the bench. He's done a nice job of filling out the stat sheet over the past three contests, averaging 11.7 points, 5.0 assists, 4.3 rebounds, 1.3 blocks, 1.0 three-pointer and 0.7 steals in 21.0 minutes while shooting 48.3 percent from the floor.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Adds 13 from bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton scored 13 points (6-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-0 FT) while adding four rebounds, six assists and a block in 17 minutes off the bench during Friday's 134-121 win over the Spurs.

It was Melton's first game with double-digit points in his last four contests. He also turned in his largest assist total since Dec. 4 against Chicago, when he was credited with seven.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Scores season-high 17 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton finished with 17 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 13 minutes during Saturday's 119-110 loss to the Nuggets.

Melton battled foul trouble throughout the game but still managed to put up solid numbers across the board. Melton has been a top-100 player over the past two weeks despite playing only 19 minutes per game. Dillon Brooks is not great and the hope is that Melton will eventually replace him in the starting lineup. However, based on the curious rotational decisions, that could be simply a dream at this point. He is a viable 12-team asset at the moment and if his playing time increases, he would quickly become a difference-maker in many leagues.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Well-rounded line versus Heat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton amassed 16 points (3-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 9-11 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and one steal in 25 minutes during Monday's 118-111 win over the Heat.

Melton matched his season high in scoring and continues to put forth pretty well-rounded stats here in December. He appeared in just seven games this season prior to this month, but Melton is showcasing his potential now that he's a regular part of the rotation. On nights when Ja Morant is rested, Melton will likely make for an intriguing option in daily formats, but even when the star rookie is in the lineup Melton can clearly make his mark.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Stifled by early foul trouble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton tallied six points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 20 minutes during Saturday's 126-112 loss to Utah.

Melton recorded two fouls in his first two minutes, basically putting an end to his first half. However, he still managed to do a bit of everything during the 20 minutes he spent on the floor, continuing his strong recent play. Tyus Jones appears to have the starting spot locked down and so Melton's playing time could be somewhat dependant on how Jones is playing. With that being said, Melton possesses a nice fantasy game and is worth a speculative pickup in most formats.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Drops 16 off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton provided 16 points (6-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds and four assists in 24 minutes Monday against the Pacers.

With Ja Morant (back) "week-to-week", Melton's seen an increased role of late, playing 48 total minutes over his past two contests after seeing 56 combined in the across his other seven appearances this season. If the workload persists, Melton could be worth a look in standard formats on a short term basis. He's a capable scorer and passer who offers some defensive tenacity with his solid rebounding and steals numbers.
