Jordan Farmar scored three points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.
He lost run because coach Dave Joerger probably didn't trust him against Stephn Curry. Farmar should play more the next time out, especially since the Grizzlies will likely use more two-PG lineups against the Clippers on Tuesday. Apr 9 - 11:03 PM

Jordan Farmar scored 11 points on 4-of-9 shooting Friday, to go with two boards, two assists, three 3-pointers and four turnovers in 26 minutes.

Farmar is starting for Memphis, but he's not necessarily seeing starters minutes. Over the past six, he has compiled averages of 10.5 points, 3.0 assists, 1.5 triples and 1.7 turnovers while receiving 24.7 minutes a night. That's only been good enough for 15th round value in standard 9-cat leagues, so he's little more than a low-end point guard to own in deeper formats.
Apr 9 - 12:39 AM

Jordan Farmar bounced back on Tuesday with 15 points, four assists, two rebounds and one steal in 31 minutes vs. the visiting Bulls.

The win gives the slumping Grizzlies some breathing room, as they're now 3.5 games up on the No. 9 seed Rockets. Farmar had just two points in 14 minutes on Sunday, ceding minutes to backup Xavier Munford, but tonight's result confirms that the starting job is his to lose.
Apr 5 - 10:55 PM

Jordan Farmar struggled in 14 minutes vs. Orlando, posting two points on 1-of-5 shooting with three assists, one steal and two turnovers.

The Grizzlies have had 28 different players in uniform this season, setting an NBA record, but despite the injury-induced carousel they're still in the thick of the playoff picture. Farmar was lousy tonight and ceded playing time to Xavier Munford, so this could be a full-blown position battle. Over his previous six games Farmar averaged 11.0 points, 1.7 triples, 3.3 assists, 1.5 steals and only 1.2 turnovers, but those numbers won't last if Munford cuts into his playing time.
Apr 3 - 8:45 PM

Jordan Farmar had another solid outing on Friday, tallying 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting to go with two boards, two assists, two 3-pointers, two steals, one block and just one turnover in 26 minutes.

Farmar has been excellent in Memphis, owning averages of 11.0 points, 3.3 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.7 treys and just 1.2 turnovers per game on 44.4 percent shooting, which translates to seventh-round value in standard 9-cat leagues. He has the starting point guard spot locked up, and is worth a look in most leagues for those seeking a quality low-end PG.
Apr 1 - 11:59 PM

The Grizzlies have signed Jordan Farmar for the remainder of the season.

This makes a lot of sense because Farmar has played well and Mike Conley (Achilles) won't be re-evaluated until the end of the regular season. Farmar is averaging 10.8 points, 3.6 assists, 1.8 boards, 1.4 steals and 1.6 treys as a Grizzly and is worth a look if you need a low-end guard.
Mar 31 - 12:52 PM

Jordan Farmar played 26 minutes in the starting lineup on Monday with nine points, three rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

He's not going to light it up in the scoring column, but Farmar should add some steals, dimes and threes with Memphis. He has one more game on his current 10-day deal and he's almost a lock to get a second one. He should have some value in deeper leagues and is the most attractive Grizzlies point guard.
Mar 29 - 12:08 AM

Jordan Farmar scored 11 points in a start against the Spurs on Friday with two rebounds, five assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

He was active early and had a lot of the offense go through him while he was out there. The other point guards on the roster have not played well, so Farmar could get into the upper 20s in his next game. The problem is that he's off until Mar. 28, so adding him now won't do much good unless you're preparing for next week.
Mar 26 - 12:30 AM

Jordan Farmar will be in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Spurs, sending Ray McCallum back to the bench.

Farmar has been solid in Memphis, owning averages of 10.0 points, 3.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.0 triples over his past two outings, although he'll be a risky guy to deploy in most leagues tonight with a tough matchup vs. San Antonio. McCallum should still be able to see a decent chunk of minutes off the bench with how banged up Memphis is.
Mar 25 - 8:10 PM

Memphis coach Dave Joerger spoke highly of Jordan Farmar.

"He's played in big games," Joerger said. "And he's still only 29 years old. I wouldn't say his odometer is real high. It's going to take him some games to get his legs underneath him. But I'm hoping that the experience he has will get us into stuff and playing off of guys will help us." Mike Conley's (Achilles) regular season is likely over, so Farmar and Ray McCallum should get a lot of minutes down the stretch. Farmar is averaging 10.0 points, 3.0 assists, 2.0 boards, 1.5 steals and 2.0 treys through two appearances and is on the radar in deeper leagues.
Mar 25 - 10:14 AM

Jordan Farmar scored eight points with five assists, one board, two steals and two 3-pointers vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

The important thing to take away from this game is that Farmar played 30 minutes compared to 18 minutes for starting PG Ray McCallum. Farmar shot just 2-of-9 from the field tonight, but McCallum hasn't exactly been lighting it up either. It looks like Farmar is going to win this position battle, so he's someone to keep an eye on in deeper leagues.
Mar 23 - 1:20 AM

Jordan Farmar scored 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting in his Memphis debut on Monday, adding three boards, one assist, one steal and two triples in 22 minutes.

Considering he arrived in Phoenix from Israel at 1:30 am, this was a very successful debut for Farmar. Briante Weber is no longer with the Grizzlies and Mike Conley (Achilles) is questionable to return for the regular season, so Farmar is now in a position battle with Ray McCallum (nine points, seven assists) which puts him firmly on the radar in deeper leagues.
Mar 22 - 1:04 AM

Jordan Farmar will play on Monday vs. the Suns.

Farmar is on a 10-day deal and will likely come off the bench behind Ray McCallum for now. He does have a chance to carve out a significant role in Memphis, but most owners can monitor him from the waiver wire.
Mar 21 - 8:55 PM

Grizzlies sign G Jordan Farmar to a 10-day contract.

Even with the point guard rotation in flux, Farmar is unlikely to come in and dramatically shake up the mix while operating on a 10-day contract. He'll start behind Lance Stephenson and Ray McCallum on the depth chart.

Jordan Farmar will sign a deal with the Grizzlies.

Mike Conley (Achilles) likely won't return until the end of the regular season, so Farmar has a decent shot of getting significant playing time considering he will be competing against Ray McCallum and Briante Weber. We will let you know when the deal is official, but Farmar is only worth a speculative add in very deep leagues for now.
