Mario Chalmers hit 5-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, three rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Clippers.
He might have played even more minutes if he wouldn't have been in foul trouble, while Kobi Simmons played just three minutes in this one. This came out of nowhere, as Chalmers played just 13, 15 and 22 minutes in his last three games, as Simmons had been coming on. Chances are this was a fluke, as Chalmers hadn't scored in double figures since Dec. 15, so just keep an eye on him in case the Grizzlies are ready to turn back to him for some reason.

Mario Chalmers scored five points with one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Lakers on Wednesday.

He was the first point guard off the bench after he was out of the rotation since Saturday. It's unclear if Chalmers will move out of the rotation again, so he's really not worth adding in even super deep leagues.

Mario Chalmers was a DNP-CD on Saturday.

He's been really bad this month at just 34.2 percent from the field and a -19.9 net rating. Chalmers may get another chance, but he's an easy drop. Add Kobi Simmons if you want instead.

Mario Chalmers finished with just three points in 26 minutes off the bench in Saturday's home loss against the Celtics.

Chalmers hit just 1-of-8 from the field, with the one make coming from behind the 3-point line, and he added three assists, two rebounds and a steal while turning it over three times. After posting his first strong game in a while on Friday against the Hawks, it was back to the doldrums for Chalmers. He needs to string together a couple of effective games before he can be trusted outside of the deepest fantasy leagues.

Mario Chalmers scored 16 points with three boards, one assist, four steals and three triples in 32 minutes in Friday's 96-94 win over the Hawks.

He was huge down the stretch, scoring 10 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter. As good as Chalmers was, this was first strong game in a while and the Grizzlies have been watching his minutes closely lately. He was averaging just 15.3 points per game in his previous three games with a combined seven points in that span, so he'll need another big game on Saturday vs. Boston for him to be on the fantasy radar again.

Mario Chalmers hit just 1-of-4 shots for two points and three assists in 20 minutes off the Grizzlies' bench on Monday.

Tyreke Evans has been starting at point guard and Chalmers has been struggling. It looked like he might be a strong play with Mike Conley out for a few weeks, but it just hasn't happened. He hasn't scored more than four points in any of his last four games, so feel free to drop him for a hot free agent if you need to.

Mario Chalmers (ankle) posted four points with three assists, two rebounds and just one turnover across 18 minutes Friday against San Antonio.

Chalmers returned to the lineup, but he came off the bench with interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff sticking with Tyreke Evans in the starting lineup. Chalmers managed just 1-of-5 shooting from the floor, and 0-of-2 from behind the arc. Despite the poor shooting performance, it appears safe to plug him back into the active fantasy lineup if you normally rely upon him, especially since the Grizzlies are shorthanded in the backcourt.

Mario Chalmers (right ankle), Chandler Parsons (knee) and Brandan Wright (groin) will all be available to play in Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

Chalmers sat out Wednesday's game, but the team let it be known they planned on having him back on Friday. Chalmers is averaging 9.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 5.4 assists in the seven games he has started this season. Tyreke Evans started on Wednesday and finished with a team-high 22 points on 9-of-17 shooting, three 3-pointers, five assists and three rebounds in 31 minutes. Evans will likely head back to the bench but will still log plenty of playing time.

Mario Chalmers (ankle) is questionable to play against the Spurs on Friday.

On Wednesday, the team said he is going to play on Friday, so he should still be out there unless he had a setback. Chalmers should be back in the starting lineup and that'll move Tyreke Evans back to his sixth-man role -- he could start, too. Chalmers could have some value for two-plus weeks.

Mario Chalmers (ankle, rest) will sit out Wednesday's game in San Antonio.

Chalmers is taking the night off, but he'll be back in action for Friday rematch with the Spurs in Memphis. Andrew Harrison could get the start tonight with Mike Conley (Achilles) still out, or interim head coach J.B. Bickerstaff could roll with Tyreke Evans at the point. Either way, Evans is the more attractive fantasy play, and he could be in for a big night with the Grizzlies so banged up.

Mario Chalmers (right ankle) and Chandler Parsons (knee) will be game-time decisions for Wednesday's matchup with the Spurs.

If Chalmers isn't able to give it a go tonight, we could see Andrew Harrison move into the starting five, or Interim head coach J.B. Bickerstaff could go with Tyreke Evans at the point. Bickerstaff did hint that he'll make some "noticeable" changes to the rotation for tonight's game, and with how well Evans has been playing, he'd be one of the more obvious candidates for more minutes. Parsons got through shootaround, but he could be a guy that falls out of the starting lineup.

Mario Chalmers (right ankle) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

This is the first we're hearing of an ankle issue for Chalmers, but if this is indeed something that forces him to the sidelines, Memphis will be razor thin at the PG spot with Mike Conley (Achilles) also unavailable. Andrew Harrison would likely move into the starting five and get all the run he could handle, and Tyreke Evans could also spend some time running the point. Stay tuned.

Mario Chalmers played 19 minutes vs. Brooklyn on Sunday, scoring three points with two assists, two steals, one rebound and one 3-pointer.

According to the Grizzlies' TV broadcast, coach David Fizdale intended to limit Chalmers after playing him 32.3 minutes in the past three games. The drop to 19 minutes was extreme, of course, and it was more a result of the game -- Memphis was crushed to start the third quarter but their reserves pulled them back into the game, so Fizdale stayed with what was working. Chalmers should be back in the 28-32 minute range on Monday.

Mario Chalmers hit 7-of-12 shots, a 3-pointer and 6-of-7 free throws for a season-high 21 points, six rebounds, six assists and a steal in 33 minutes in another start for Mike Conley on Monday.

Chalmers is no Spencer Dinwiddie, but he was very good tonight, and is going to get a great opportunity in Memphis with Mike Conley (Achilles) on the shelf indefinitely. We thought Chalmers was worth grabbing by owners in need of a point guard prior to this contest, but he's officially going to be a very hot pickup on Tuesday morning. He's averaging 10.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.4 steals over his last five, and will hopefully be able to keep it going against the Mavs on Wednesday.

Mario Chalmers finished with six points in Saturday's game against the Rockets, his second game since moving into the starting five with Mike Conley (Achilles) injured.

Chalmers was just 1-of-7 from the floor, although he did salvage the line with eight assists, four rebounds and four steals across 29 minutes. He is 1-of-8 from behind the arc since moving into the starting lineup. Conley is just day-to-day, so Chalmers doesn't have much appeal outside of streaming, DFS and those in need of a cheap PG in deeper leagues.
