Grizzlies' Wayne Selden: Scores six points in Monday's loss
Selden tallied six points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 18 minutes during Monday's 96-88 loss to the Jazz.
Selden saw the fewest minutes among the eight Grizzlies who saw the floor in this one. However, with Dillon Brooks (knee) sidelined for the next six-to-eight weeks, Selden will have an opportunity to provide some additional grit along the wing. Still, he's probably not worth a look outside of deeper leagues.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' MarShon Brooks: Scores 10 points in Monday's loss
Brooks had 10 points (4-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist, and one block in 23 minutes during Monday's 96-88 loss to the Grizzlies.
Brooks saw a season high minute total and reached double figures for the second straight game. Dillon Brooks (knee) being out for the next six-to-eight weeks gives MarShon Brooks the opportunity to step up and provide depth along the wing. Regardless, Brooks is best reserved for use in deeper leagues that value counting stats.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Kyle Anderson: Matches career high in rebounding
Anderson accumulated seven points (3-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds, five assists, and one steal in 38 minutes during Monday's 96-88 loss to the Jazz.
Anderson matched his career high in rebounding, which he just set in Saturday's win over the 76ers. He has hauled in double-digit boards three times and dished five dimes twice this season, and continues to look more and more comfortable with his new club. The fact that Dillon Brooks (knee) will miss six-to-eight weeks will only aid Anderson's ability to put up fantasy-friendly numbers.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: First double-double, five blocks in Monday's loss
Jackson managed 10 points (4-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, five blocks, three assists, and one steal in 27 minutes during Monday's 96-88 loss to the Jazz.
Jackson hauled in his first career double-double while recording a career high rebounding total and swatting five shots for the second time in the last four games. He continues to struggle with his three-point shot and has been an inconsistent statistical contributor as the team's starting power forward. Nevertheless, Jackson's ability to defend inside and out coupled with his willingness to keep firing away offensively makes him a good bet to hold onto the job even once JaMychal Green (mouth) recovers....

Grizzlies' Omri Casspi: Out Monday, nearing return
Casspi (knee) is expected back within the next week.
Casspi is set to miss a fourth straight game with right knee soreness, though he's apparently nearing a full recovery. His next chance to play will come Wednesday against the Bucks.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Dillon Brooks: Will miss 6-to-8 weeks
Brooks (knee) will miss six-to-eight weeks with a Grade 2 MCL sprain, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Although Brooks avoided a more extensive knee injury, he is set to miss nearly two months with a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his knee. Brooks had been receiving minutes as the backup shooting guard and was averaging 6.8 points and 2.1 rebounds in 18 minutes per game. With Brooks out, look for Wayne Selden and MarShon Brooks to get more run.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Chandler Parsons: Out at least two more weeks
Parsons (knee) is set to miss at least two more weeks, Grind City Media reports.
In what's unfortunately become a familiar refrain in recent years, Parsons is yet again having issues with his surgically repaired knee and will be reevaluated in two weeks. At this point, it's fair to question Parsons' long-term future in the NBA, but for the time being the Grizzlies and the veteran wing will continue to rehab with the goal of getting him back on the floor as soon as possible....

Grizzlies' Jevon Carter: Called up from G League
Carter was recalled from the G League on Monday.
Carter has been shuttling back and forth between the Grizzlies and the Memphis Hustle, and he's expected to be with the NBA club for its game Monday night following Sunday's G League game against the Austin Spurs.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Omri Casspi: Doubtful for Monday
Casspi (knee) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Jazz.
Casspi has missed the last three games while nursing soreness in his right knee, and it looks like his absence will extend to four. His absence, however, will continue having a minimal impact on the team's rotation.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Chandler Parsons: Remains sidelined Monday
Parsons (knee) won't play Monday against the Jazz.
Parsons is still being bothered by right knee soreness, so he'll be held out for Monday's contest. He should be a game-time decision Wednesday in Milwaukee.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Dillon Brooks: Ruled out Monday
Brooks (knee) won't be available for Monday's game against Utah.
Brooks is set for an MRI on his knee Monday after suffering an injury during Saturday's game. He'll remain on the sideline for the Grizzlies' next contest and possibly longer depending on the results of the test.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Jevon Carter: Reassigned to G League
Carter was reassigned to the G League on Sunday.
Carter will rejoin the Memphis Hustle for Sunday's matchup with the Austin Spurs. The rookie out of West Virginia is yet to make an impact at the NBA level this season.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Dillon Brooks: Set for MRI on Monday
Brooks (knee) will undergo an MRI on his knee Monday.
Brooks left Saturday's game with what the team suspects is a strained knee, but more information should be available Monday afternoon. As of now, Brooks should be considered very much questionable for Monday night's home matchup with the Jazz.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Mike Conley: Scores season-high 32 points in Saturday's win
Conley contributed 32 points (12-24 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six assists, four rebounds, two steals, and one block in 42 minutes during Saturday's 112-106 overtime win against the 76ers.
Conley had combined to score just 13 points over the last two games (and 25 over the last three), so his season high scoring output was a welcome sight for fantasy owners. Moreover, Conley had connected on just nine-of-33 field-goal attempts over the last three tilts, so his efficiency in this contest was also notable. The 31-year-old point guard remains one of the top options at his position and serves as the top offensive option for the Grizzlies (along with Marc Gasol).... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Kyle Anderson: Grabs career-high 13 rebounds in Saturday's win
Anderson tallied eight points (4-8 FG), 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 33 minutes during Saturday's 112-106 overtime win against the 76ers.
Anderson hauled in a career high rebounding total while contributing in every category except three-point shooting. Anderson is known for his ability to do a little bit of everything except shoot from the outside, but his deficiencies as a scorer make it tough to rely on him in standard leagues.... See More ...

Grizzlies' Shelvin Mack: Scores 12 points in Saturday's win
Mack managed 12 points (6-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 33 minutes during Saturday's 112-106 overtime win against the 76ers.
Mack had been listed as probable with right groin soreness but was able to give it a go, matching starting forward Kyle Anderson for the fourth-most minutes on the team in this one. Mack is a strong defensive presence who can make things happen off the dribble offensively, the latter of which is a skill that's otherwise somewhat lacking in Memphis. Mack has reached double figures in scoring in five of the last six games and continues to see plenty of minutes alongside starting point guard Mike Conley. As a result, Mack has become a decent low-end option in standard leagues.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Dillon Brooks: Will not return Saturday
Brooks will not return to Saturday's game against the 76ers due to a left knee injury, Peter Edmiston of the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Brooks had accumulated two points (1-4 FG) and four rebounds across nine minutes before exiting the game. While the severity of the injury is not known at this time, expect an update once the Grizzlies provide more information.... See More ... See Less
