Mario Chalmers started on Wednesday and had eight points on 3-of-5 shooting, four rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 20 minutes.
Andrew Harrison (right wrist/left shoulder) was sidelined and Tyreke Evans (personal) was out again tonight due to a family matter. Harrison sounds day-to-day, but it's anyone's guess when or if Evans will return this season. Reserve guard Kobi Simmons wound up logging 28 minutes, and Chalmers also played less than Wayne Selden (23 minutes) and MarShon Brooks (21 minutes), so he's not worth owning even as a starter.

Date:

Mario Chalmers will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers with Andrew Harrison (wrist) unavailable.

Chalmers could get some decent run at the one with Harrison and Tyreke Evans (personal) out tonight, so he might be someone to consider as a punt play in DFS. Joining him in the starting five will be Dillon Brooks, Jarell Martin, JaMychal Green and Marc Gasol.
Mar 28 - 7:49 PM

Mario Chalmers returned on Saturday with no points and one assist in seven minutes.

The Grizzlies want to give Briante Weber a look and Tyreke Evans looks healthy, so don't expect much out of Chalmers these days.
Mar 17 - 11:24 PM

Mario Chalmers (hamstring) is available for Saturday against the Nuggets.

That probably pushes Kobi Simmons out of the rotation for tonight, but Chalmers likely won't play much with Tyreke Evans back in action. Leave Chalmers on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 17 - 6:39 PM

Mario Chalmers (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Andrew Harrison (wrist) is also questionable, so the Grizzlies won't need to rely on Kobi Simmons or Briante Weber nearly as much if one or both of these guys can go. Chalmers will likely return to a limited role off the bench unless he beats Harrison back to the court, so he's not a great add.
Mar 16 - 5:46 PM

Mario Chalmers (hamstring) is out for Thursday vs. the Bulls.

Tyreke Evans (rib) is back, so the Grizzlies won't need Chalmers as much. He's getting closer, but obviously leave him on the wire.
Mar 15 - 6:38 PM

Mario Chalmers (hamstring) is doubtful to play Thursday vs. the Bulls.

Chalmers was recently re-evaluated, but apparently, he hasn't made much progress given the doubtful-tag. In the likely event that Chalmers joins Andrew Harrison (wrist) on the sidelines tomorrow, Kobi Simmons will likely be looking at another start with Briante Weber backing him up.

Mario Chalmers (hamstring) will be re-evaluated a week from Monday.

Andrew Harrison (wrist) is also expected to sit out another week or two. Tyreke Evans (ribs) is still day-to-day, meaning the Grizzlies will rely on two-way contract player Kobi Simmons at point guard in the short term. The Grizzlies also signed guard Xavier Rathan-Mayes to a 10-day contract, so he could be looking at minutes. Wayne Selden should have the ball in his hands quite a bit as well, but he's pretty banged up.
Mar 5 - 8:43 PM

Mario Chalmers (right hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's game vs. the Spurs.

Chalmers had a hamstring injury prior to the All-Star break, although that affected his left leg, so at least he didn't aggravate a pre-existing injury on Saturday. Hamstring injuries can be touchy and the Grizzlies have no incentive to rush him back, so he could be looking at a multi-game absence.
Mar 4 - 6:30 PM

Mario Chalmers (right hamstring) will not return against the Magic on Saturday.

Oh boy. That means the Grizzlies are missing four point guard options now with Wayne Selden (knee), Tyreke Evans (rib) and Andrew Harrison already out today. Hamstring injuries do not heal quickly, so Chalmers is likely looking at time off. If he's out while Evans and Harrison can't play Monday, we may see a lot of Selden and especially Kobi Simmons. Chalmers had a nice game before the injury with 15 points, one rebound, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.
Mar 3 - 9:13 PM

Mario Chalmers made a start against the Nuggets on Friday with 12 points, one rebound, six assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

The Grizzlies kept Wayne Selden's minutes down to 10 while Tyreke Evans (rib) and Andrew Harrison (wrist) were out. Chalmers could be looking at another chance on Saturday, but don't be surprised if he gets a rest day. If he's starting again, he'll be an option in DFS or as a stream.
Mar 2 - 10:40 PM

Mario Chalmers, Ben McLemore and Jarell Martin will enter the starting lineup on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

They will join Dillon Brooks and Marc Gasol in the first unit. Andrew Harrison (wrist) is sitting out tonight, but he's considered day-to-day. Chalmers has some short-term streaming appeal, averaging 9.0 points, 5.4 assists, 4.0 rebounds, 2.1 steals and 0.9 triples in seven previous starts. We may even see Kobi Simmons get some run tonight with so many injuries in Memphis.
Mar 2 - 7:56 PM

Mario Chalmers played 15 minutes with seven points, two assists and one 3-pointer against the Heat on Saturday.

He picked up most of the backup minutes behind Andrew Harrison in this bad loss. Harrison has found himself lately, so there's not much left for Chalmers to pick up. He's more of a streaming option in deep leagues.
Feb 24 - 9:55 PM

Mario Chalmers (ankle) returned to action Friday against the Cavaliers, posting four points over 26 minutes.

Chalmers was a dismal 2-of-10 from the field, including 0-of-2 from behind the 3-point line, and he even misfired on his only free-throw attempt. The only positive from his stat line was his two steals, but his four turnovers nullified even that for most. Still, he might see a bump in run going forward if Tyreke Evans (ribs) is forced to miss time with the injury he suffered on Friday.
Feb 23 - 11:37 PM

Mario Chalmers (ankle) is available on Friday vs. the Cavaliers.

Andrew Harrison is playing well and Tyreke Evans didn't go anywhere at the deadline, so Chalmers could have a volatile role off the bench going forward. He's not on the standard-league radar.
