Beno Udrih (illness) will play Friday vs. the Celtics.

Udrih will resume his backup point guard duties, but he's just averaging 7.5 points and 2.6 assists over 17 minutes of action this season. He doesn't belong on a roster in most leagues.

Ben Udrih (illness) is listed as questionable to face the Celtics on Friday.

The Grizzlies will need a backup point guard, so Udrih is more important than some of the other bench guys. He's still not going to get more than minutes in the teens while Mike Conley is playing.
Nov 20 - 7:36 PM

Beno Udrih (illness) will not play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

The Grizzlies are going to need a heck of a lot of Mike Conley tonight with Nick Calathes suspended. Expect Jordan Adams to handle the ball on occasion tonight. Udrih can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Nov 19 - 6:35 PM

Beno Udrih (flu) is questionable for Wednesday's game against Toronto.

The Grizzlies have five players questionable after they showed signs of the flu so it is going to be all hands on deck Thursday. If Udrih sits, Vince Carter and Jordan Adams may have to handle some of the ball-handlng duties behind Mike Conley. Stay tuned.

The Grizzlies improved to 7-1 with a win vs. the Lakers in Memphis on Tuesday, aided by Beno Udrih's 16 points on 8-of-11 shooting off the bench.

Udrih became the first Grizzlies bench player to score double-digit points this season, and he did it in just 18 minutes while adding three assists and one steal. His playing time is too limited to consider him as a fantasy asset while starter Mike Conley (23 points in 35 minutes) is healthy.
Nov 11 - 11:01 PM

Beno Udrih scored six points on 3-of-6 shooting in 19 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's win over the Suns.

Udrih's minutes were important to the Grizzlies as Mike Conley is nursing a sore ankle and was able to stay under 30 minutes, but fantasy owners can feel free to look elsewhere for backcourt help.
Nov 6 - 12:22 PM

Beno Udrih suffered a bruised right hand during Saturday's game against the Hawks, but returned to finish the game when X-rays were negative.

Udrih finished with two points and two assists, and has no fantasy value as long as Mike Conley can walk.
Oct 11 - 11:19 PM

Beno Udrih has reached an agreement to return to the Grizzlies next season, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

Udrih was acquired by Memphis from the New York Knicks in late February and averaged only 5.5 minutes in his 10 games played with the Grizzlies during the regular season. He managed to salvage his season with a strong playoff showing, scoring nearly eight points per game while shooting over 40 percent from the field. The deal will be for two years at the bi-annual exception, starting at $2.1 million for the first year with a partial guarantee on the second.
Jul 10 - 4:10 PM

The Grizzlies are reportedly "unlikely" to re-sign unrestricted free agent Beno Udrih.

Memphis claimed Udrih off waivers last February and he stepped into a solid role once Nick Calathes was suspended, but it appears he'll look for his next contract outside of Memphis. The 31-year-old veteran isn't likely to earn more than a backup role regardless of where he signs.
Jun 29 - 5:34 PM

Grizzlies PG Beno Udrih will take on a bigger role in the playoffs with Nick Calathes suspended 20 games for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy.

Calathes was averaging 15 minutes per game and he proved to be invaluable when Mike Conley missed games in February, but his playing time will now fall to Udrih. Although he's only played a handful of minutes with Memphis, Udrih is a career 46.1 percent shooter (35.6 percent from downtown) and he boasts a solid assist-to-turnover ratio of 2.5.

The Grizzlies have claimed Beno Udrih off waivers, according to

He'll compete for backup minutes with Nick Calathes on his new team. Udrih played just 19 minutes per game with the Knicks and quickly fell out of favor with coach Mike Woodson. He can be ignored in most leagues.

The buyouts of both Beno Udrih and Metta World Peace will become official on Monday.

Udrih was brought on in the offseason to backup Raymond Felton, however Mike Woodson refused to give Udrih minutes. Both MWP and Udrih fell out of Woodson's rotation, and an exit from New York can only help their values. However, without knowing where they will land, it's impossible to say exactly how their values will be affected. Stay tuned for more updates.

Beno Udrih is expected to be bought out by the New York Knicks.

Beno and Metta World Peace share the same agent and MWP's latest Twitter rants may have sealed the pair's fate in New York. No word yet on where either player will end up, but both could make a nice impact on a team headed toward the playoffs.
Feb 22 - 12:17 PM

The Wizards and Nuggets are said to be interested in acquiring guard Beno Udrih from the Knicks, according to the New York Post.

Udrih said the Wizards tried to acquire him last summer, while the Nuggets are reportedly offering SF Jordan Hamilton, who has been starting with PG Ty Lawson out with a broken rib. With Iman Shumpert's knee injury, Udrih now appears to be the Knick most likely to be traded, so it would appear that congratulations are in order.
