Grizzlies' Shelvin Mack: Solid in spot start
Mack provided eight points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and four assists across 26 minutes in the Grizzlies' 110-93 loss to the Warriors on Monday.
Mack drew the start at point guard with Mike Conley (hamstring) on the shelf, and he generated a serviceable stat line overall. The veteran remains a solid asset off the bench behind Conley when the latter is healthy, and he's currently sporting the second-best scoring average of his career (8.7 points per game) partly on the strength of a career-high 40.7 percent success rate from three-point range....

Grizzlies' Garrett Temple: Continues contributing in defeat
Temple totaled 13 points (5-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound, one assist, two steals and two blocks across 25 minutes in the Grizzlies' 110-93 loss to the Warriors on Monday.
The veteran continues to stick in the starting five and provide solid supplemental production on the offensive end. Temple is typically less involved as a shooter than he was Monday, when he put up his third-highest number of shot attempts for the season. He continues to sport his best shooting percentage (44.1) since his nine-game rookie stint with the Rockets back in the 2009-10 season, while his 10.4 points per game qualify as a career-high figure....

Grizzlies' Kyle Anderson: Strong offensive effort in return
Anderson (ankle) delivered 14 points (6-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and one assist across 24 minutes in the Grizzlies' 110-93 loss to the Warriors on Monday.
Anderson somewhat surprisingly checked in behind only Omri Casspi and Marc Gasol in scoring on the night for the Grizzlies, equaling his second-highest point tally of the season. The defensive-minded wing has only posted double-digit scoring on six occasions overall this season, and Monday's spike in production was a combination of a particularly strong shooting performance and the added offensive responsibility Anderson carried with Mike Conley (hamstring) out of action. The 25-year-old remains a solid source of rebounds, assists and steals, but he's still averaging just 7.0 points per game factoring in Monday's production.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Omri Casspi: Lights up old squad in loss
Casspi registered 20 points (8-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and a block across 21 minutes in the Grizzlies' 110-93 loss to the Warriors on Monday.
Casspi turned in a ultra-efficient performance off the bench, leveraging some laser-sharp shooting for his best point total of the season. The Grizzlies had a need for some extra scoring Monday with Mike Conley (hamstring) sidelined, and Casspi was able to come through in that regard against the team he played 53 games for last season. Despite the uptick in production Monday, it's worth noting the veteran's numbers have typically been well below those he generated versus Golden State in a second-unit role that usually only affords him minutes in the teens....

Grizzlies' Marc Gasol: Solid in Conley's absence
Gasol posted 15 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, six assists and one steal across 26 minutes in the Grizzlies' 110-93 loss to the Warriors on Monday.
Gasol generated a solid line overall, but he didn't see a spike in production in the absence of Mike Conley (hamstring). The veteran big man did find his way to his third straight double-digit scoring effort on the strength of a second consecutive impressive shooting performance. Gasol has generally had a rough month on that front thus far, as he's only eclipsed the 50 percent mark on three occasions and shot under 40 percent in five other December contests. His rebounding has also seen a dip since the calendar flipped to the current month, as he's averaging 6.1 boards, compared to the 10.3 he put up in November.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Shelvin Mack: Gets start Monday
Mack will start Monday's game against the Warriors.
With usual start Mike Conley inactive due to a hamstring issue, Mack will get a spot-start Monday. He's had an effective year coming off the Grizzlies bench, and is averaging 8.7 points, 3.2 assists and 2.1 rebounds in 24.9 minutes per game, and should see a boost in run for however long Conley will be out....

Grizzlies' Mike Conley: Ruled out vs. Golden State
Conley (hamstring) won't play Monday against the Warriors.
Conley was a late addition to the injury report due to a nagging hamstring injury, and after attempting to go through pregame warmups, he'll be sidelined at Golden State. Shelvin Mack will start at point guard, although Jevon Carter should also see more run with Conley on the shelf. His next chance to return will come Wednesday in Portland.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Mike Conley: Inactive Monday
Conley (hamstring) won't play in Monday's tilt with the Warriors.
Conley has been battling through a lingering hamstring issue, and won't take the floor Monday. It's unclear if the injury was aggravated, or if Conley is simply taking an extra day to rehab. Look for more information to come out prior to the Grizzlies next game, Wednesday in Portland.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Kyle Anderson: Available as expected
Anderson (ankle) has been cleared to play Monday against the Warriors.
Anderson missed Saturday's game against Houston due to a left ankle sprain, but he's since returned to health and figures to start versus the Warriors. He's averaging 8.0 points along with 6.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists over his previous seven games, and his squad will face a tough Golden State team on the road Monday.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Mike Conley: Questionable Monday
Conley will be a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Warriors.
Conley wasn't previously listed on the Grizzlies' injury report, but he's been battling through a hamstring issue of late and it's evidently flared up once again. He'll likely test it out during pregame warmups and a decision on his availability should come shortly after.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Jevon Carter: Could continue seeing minutes
Carter could remain in the rotation during the Grizzlies' upcoming road trip, David Cobb of the Commercial Appeal reports.
The rookie out of West Virginia made his NBA debut against the Rockets on Saturday and finished with 11 points, two steals, one rebound and one block in 22 minutes of action. He saw the floor due in part to injuries to Kyle Anderson (ankle) and Dillon Brooks (knee), but even with Anderson expected to return Monday night, Cobb speculates that Carter could remain an option for coach J.B. Bickerstaff off the bench. Carter can still be ignored in the vast majority of fantasy formats, but given his defensive capabilities at the college level, his development may be worth monitoring in deeper leagues....

Grizzlies' Kyle Anderson: Expected back Monday
Anderson (ankle) is expected to return to action Monday, David Cobb of the Commercial Appeal reports.
The Grizzlies still listed Anderson as questionable on the initial injury report, but Cobb speculates that it's more likely he's trending closer to a probable tag. Assuming Anderson is cleared, he'd likely slot back into the lineup at small forward, which would push Shelvin Mack to the bench.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Kyle Anderson: Questionable for Monday
Anderson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Warriors.
Anderson missed Saturday's game with a left ankle sprain. If Anderson is forced to miss another game, Garrett Temple and Omri Casspi could see more run. More information should come out after Monday's morning shootaround, as well as prior to Monday's tip.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Jevon Carter: Scores 11 points in debut
Carter produced 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt), two steals, one rebound, and one block in 22 minutes during Saturday's 105-97 loss to the Rockets.
Carter made his season debut for the Grizzlies on Saturday, scoring 11 points and adding a pair of steals. He has battled knee soreness across the first two months of the season but played well here. He certainly has a case to be a regular part of the rotation based on this performance but we would need to see a lot more to consider him valuable in any format.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Foul trouble strikes again in loss
Jackson totaled nine points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, three blocks, and one steal in 31 minutes during Saturday's 105-97 loss to Houston.
Jackson recorded two fouls in the first two minutes of the game Saturday, limiting his production across the game. He still managed to contribute across the board in the loss but the foul issue is a constant bother for his owners. Hopefully, he will get things figured out and as soon as that happens, the sky is the limit.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Marc Gasol: Improved outing Saturday
Gasol had 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, and three steals in 32 minutes during Saturday's 105-97 loss to the Rockets.
Gasol turned in an improved performance Saturday but could not help the Grizzlies avoid yet another loss. Gasol has failed to score in excess of 20 points for nine straight games. He has also recorded double-digit rebound just once in that timeframe.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Mike Conley: Has team-high 22 points Saturday
Conley finished with 22 points (8-17 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six assists, and two rebounds in 37 minutes during Saturday's 105-97 loss to Houston.
Conley, who continues to be bothered by a hamstring concern, scored a team-high 22 points in 37 minutes Saturday. The fact he played 37 minutes in the loss is a good sign moving forward. The Grizzlies will get a night off before traveling to Oakland to face the Warriors. Conley will likely suit up for that one but the situation is worth monitoring in case the injury flares up....
