Quincy Pondexter's struggles on opening night stemmed from Nick Calathes' absence, according to head coach Dave Joerger.
After a rough showing from the Grizzlies' bench in Wednesday win over the Timberwolves, Joerger said he thinks Nick Calathes' 20-game suspension played a part. "Those guys will find their rhythm and identities," the head coach said. "It’s difficult for Jon [Leuer] and Q [Quincy Pondexter]. They’re used to playing with Nick Calathes and Nick plays a certain way." Pondexter only scored four points in 11 minutes on Wednesday and doesn't have much fantasy value going forward as Tony Allen's backup. Oct 30 - 12:55 PM

Quincy Pondexter came off the bench and played just 11 minutes for four points and a 3-pointer on 1-of-2 shooting.

He was starting at SF in the preseason and playing well, but Tony Allen took back the job tonight and rained on his parade.

Quincy Pondexter got the night off on Friday, as the Grizzlies concluded their preseason with a 98-104 loss to the visiting Heat.

Q-Pon scored 15 points as a starter on Wednesday, sinking two 3-pointers and filling up the stat sheet with five boards, three assists, two steals and one block. His 3-point shooting is a blessing for the Grizzlies' perimeter-starved offense, improving Pondexter's odds of beating Tony Allen for the starting SF job. He's definitely worth considering as a flier pick.

Quincy Pondexter started at small forward and played 30 minutes on Wednesday, hitting 3-of-7 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block.

He's battling with Tony Allen for the starting job and may have won it with this performance. Allen had five points and Vince Carter hit just 1-of-6 shots off the bench. If Pondexter is starting on opening night, he's going to be a popular deep-league pick up off the waiver wire. And if you're drafting this weekend, he is worth a look at the end of it.

Quincy Pondexter had his third positive showing in a row on Monday with 18 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

In his last three, he's averaged 15.7 points, 2.3 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.7 steals and 2.3 triples. Pondexter looks to be very healthy and the Grizzlies might be inclined to start him considering how horrible Tayshaun Prince was last year. Vince Carter is still going to get his chances, so Q-Pon is only a deep-league target. It's worth mentioning he's shot just 42.7 percent from the field in his career.
Oct 20 - 11:40 PM

Quincy Pondexter started for the Grizzlies on Tuesday and had 16 points, two rebounds and three 3-pointers on 4-of-9 shooting.

The Grizzlies rolled out their D-League and bench team tonight, so don't get too excited about QP's line. But if a wing or power forward suffers an injury in Memphis this season, QP could be a guy to target off the waiver wire.
Oct 15 - 12:52 AM

Quincy Pondexter played 21 minutes on Thursday against the Rockets, posting a line of nine points, two rebounds, three assists and one turnover.

He suffered a season-ending stress fracture in 2013-14 and has been going through practice. Pondexter is a candidate to start because Tayshaun Prince was arguably one of the worst starters in the NBA last season. Still, he's not even close to being on the map as a pick in standard leagues.
Oct 9 - 11:16 PM

Quincy Pondexter (foot) went through at least some of practice on Wednesday.

The team Twitter account shared a picture of him taking a jumper and he looks to be over his broken foot from last season. Pondexter will have to fight for minutes this season and is not worth drafting in most leagues.
Oct 1 - 3:40 PM

Quincy Pondexter was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his foot and is expected to miss the rest of the season.

He has a fracture to the tarsal navicular bone in his right foot. The Grizzlies are having some bad luck with the injury bug and continue to lose depth. Pondexter got the start at shooting guard on Saturday with Tony Allen (hip) hurt, so they are really down to just Jerryd Bayless and Nick Calathes for options at the two until Allen gets back. Mike Miller and Jamaal Franklin could also see some time at shooting guard.

Quincy Pondexter started at shooting guard on Saturday and scored four points with one rebound and one assist in 13 minutes.

The Grizzlies may have wanted to extra length to help combat Golden State's 3-point shooting, but it didn't work at all as the Warriors shot 44 percent beyond the arc. Pondexter will likely go back to seeing more DNP-CDs once Tony Allen (hip) returns to the lineup.

Quincy Pondexter will move into the starting lineup for the injured Tony Allen (hip).

He is playing a little out of position against the Warriors tonight, but Jerryd Bayless guarding Klay Thompson seems like a scary thought. Pondexter has his fair share of DNP-CDs, but he scored 15 points on Thursday with Allen out and might be able to crack double-figure scoring again. He's off the radar in standard leagues.

Quincy Pondexter got hot in the fourth quarter against the Nets on Saturday, finishing with 22 points, one assist and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

He scored 14 points in a row for the Grizzlies at the end of the third and the start of the fourth. Pondexter had back-to-back DNP-CDs coming into this game, so there's little reason to pick him up based on a five-minute outburst.

Quincy Pondexter returned to action on Friday after suffering a broken nose earlier in the week, scoring six points on 3-of-6 shooting with six rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes.

Pondexter has been on the outside looking in at most fantasy leagues, and his return will help limit the value of Mike Miller and Tony Allen.
Sat, Nov 16, 2013 04:14:00 AM

Quincy Pondexter (broken nose) had his nose reset and is targeting a weekend return.

The Grizzlies play Friday and Sunday, so we'll be monitoring which day the Grizzlies expect Pondexter to return. He hasn't scored more than eight points in a game during the month of November, however, so the fourth-year player's fantasy value is quite limited -- especially now that Jerryd Bayless has returned to action.
Thu, Nov 14, 2013 10:14:00 AM

Quincy Pondexter (broken nose) will not play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

He did not return from suffering his broken nose on Monday and the Grizzlies keeping him out of the lineup suggests that putting a mask on their small forward won't be enough. Mike Miller and Tayshaun Prince should pick up most of Pondexter's 14.4 minutes per game.
