Quincy Pondexter (illness) is being listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

Courtney Lee said that Pondexter is dealing with the worst part of the illness today, so it would be a bit shocking if he were to suit up. If Pondexter sits, there will be more minutes to go around for Vince Carter and Courtney Lee.

Quincy Pondexter (illness) is listed as questionable to face the Celtics on Friday.

He looks like he's a little behind schedule on the illness, so Pondexter might have a smaller chance to play. He's not a fantasy option as long as Courtney Lee and Tony Allen are out there.
Nov 20 - 7:34 PM

Quincy Pondexter started for the flu-depleted Grizzlies on Wednesday and had just four points and one rebound on 2-of-6 shooting in 25 minutes.

Courtney Lee, Tony Allen and a few others were out with the illness tonight, so QP drew the start. He looked like a sneaky daily play, but that plan didn't work out as planned.
Nov 20 - 2:24 AM

Quincy Pondexter should play heavy minutes for the Grizzlies on Wednesday, as they're down to only nine healthy players.

Five guys are out with the flu including Courtney Lee and Tony Allen, which opens up a major opportunity for Q-Pon on the wings. He's well worth considering as a fill-in option in daily leagues, but doesn't have enough long-term value to bother with anywhere else.
Nov 19 - 6:39 PM

Quincy Pondexter scored 13 points on 5-of-14 shooting (including three treys) with three rebounds and four assists over 30 minutes in Monday's blowout win.

Pondexter has been in and out of the rotation and we need to see this many more times before we let him out of our doghouse. He and Kosta Koufos (three steals, three blocks, 10 points, six boards) obviously benefited from the garbage time tonight.
Nov 18 - 1:29 AM

Quincy Pondexter and Grizzlies head coach Dave Joerger had a closed-door meeting before Wednesday's practice.

The backup swingman played just two minutes during Tuesday's win over the Lakers and Joerger took some time to clear the air with Pondexter. "The message is, this is what I was thinking and this is what I’m thinking going forward," Joerger said. "It’s always about not letting little things become big things. When you don’t talk to guys, that’s the worst." Pondexter is stuck behind Courtney Lee on the Grizzlies' depth chart and shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters at this point.
Nov 13 - 1:14 PM

Quincy Pondexter logged 26 minutes off the bench with Courtney Lee (concussion) out on Monday, but managed just five points on 2-of-6 shooting with one 3-pointer and four rebounds.

Pondexter has had a nice window to produce and simply hasn't gotten it done. Lee could be back as soon as Wednesday's game and owners can watch this action from the wire.
Nov 4 - 12:35 AM

Quincy Pondexter put up a goose egg against the Pacers in 16 minutes on Friday, adding one rebound and three assists.

Things were looking up for him in preseason action, but he's really struggled and hasn't seen minutes. Although, he could wind up in the starting lineup with Courtney Lee (head) out. He is still only an option in very deep leagues.
Oct 31 - 9:51 PM

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.
Oct 30 - 1:19 AM

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.
Oct 24 - 11:21 PM

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.
Oct 22 - 11:10 PM

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.
