Grizzlies' Joakim Noah: Questionable Wednesday
Noah has been deemed questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Trail Blazers due to right heel soreness.
Noah has been a regular on the injury report since joining the Grizzlies following a lengthy absence from regular playing time. So far, he has averaged 4.9 points, 3.4 boards, 0.4 steals, and 0.6 blocks across 14.4 minutes in eight games with the team. The veteran big man figures to continue providing frontcourt depth for the Grizzlies going forward. An update on his status for Wednesday's game will likely come closer to tip-off.... See More ...

Grizzlies' Mike Conley: Questionable Wednesday
Conley (hamstring) is considered questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Trail Blazers.
Conley was unable to suit up for Monday's loss to the Warriors, and looks like he is trending towards another game-time decision. Shelvin Mack would presumably replace him in the starting lineup at pointguard should he be unable to go again. An update on his status should be made available following Wednesday's shootaround....

Grizzlies' Kyle Anderson: Probable Wednesday
Anderson is probable for Wednesday's tilt against the Trail Blazers due to a right hip contusion.
Anderson was dealing with an ankle injury before logging a relatively impressive performance in Monday's loss to the Warriors. It looks like he came out of the contest with a hip issue, but looks on track to play Wednesday barring any setbacks. Expect confirmation on his status closer to game-time.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Yuta Watanabe: Sees run in garbage time
Watanabe (concussion) played four minutes Monday in the Grizzlies' 110-93 loss to the Warriors, finishing with two points (1-2 FG) and one rebound.
Watanabe's usage off the bench confirms that he's cleared the NBA's concussion protocol, which had kept him unavailable for the last few games. The rookie forward isn't a rotation option for the Grizzlies and might have been inactive for this contest if Mike Conley (hamstring) hadn't been ruled out beforehand.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Austin Rivers: Expected to sign with Grizzlies
Rivers is expected to sign with the Grizzlies once he is officially bought out by the Suns, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Rivers, who was dealt to the Suns as part of the deal that sent Trevor Ariza to Washington earlier in the week, is set to join the Grizzlies after being waived by Phoenix. Before being traded, Rivers posted averages of 7.2 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 23.6 minutes with the Wizards (29 games). He figures to see similar opportunities with the Grizzlies, though his exact role remains undetermined.... See More ... See Less
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....
