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. Mon, Dec 9, 2013 02:18:00 PM

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.

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.

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.

Quincy Pondexter left Monday's game with a broken nose and did not return.

Pondexter doesn't have much fantasy value on his own but he has been coming into his own for the Grizzlies and his absence will make things comfortable for Tony Allen and Mike Miller, especially while Jerryd Bayless is out. Allen should be owned in most formats and Miller was an interesting pickup before the Grizzlies' four-game week this week.

The Grizzlies extended Quincy Pondexter's contract on Thursday.

Details haven't been announced but it was expected to be a four-year extension. Q-Pon led Memphis from beyond the arc last year, hitting 39.5 percent of his 3-pointers, which was critical for a team that ranked dead last in that department during 2012-13.

Quincy Pondexter is expected to sign a four-year extension with the Grizzlies before Thursday's deadline.

It would seem as if the third-year player can finally hire a real estate agent, as he'll be calling the Memphis area home for the next four years barring a trade. While Pondexter has carved out an important bench role for the Grizz, he's not much of a fantasy option in anything but the deepest of leagues for now.

Quincy Pondexter made another start at small forward on Wednesday as Tayshaun Prince continues to sit with a mysterious illness.

Pondexter had four points, three boards, two dimes and a steal in 26 minutes, and hasn't exactly been tearing it up. But if Prince continues to miss time, or suffers an injury, QP could be worth a look on the waiver wire at some point.

Quincy Pondexter got a start on Tuesday and had 24 points, four rebounds and two 3-pointers on 9-of-14 shooting in a preseason win over the Bucks.

Zach Randolph was resting and Tayshaun Prince was out with an illness, so this very well may go down as QP's best game of the year.

Quincy Pondexter scored a team-high 22 points on 7-of-11 shooting (including three treys) with three rebounds and two steals in the Grizzlies' 93-86 Game 4 loss on Monday.

The Spurs funneled action toward Pondexter and he responded on offense tonight, but this game was about the Grizzlies' big men getting completely outclassed and the other role players getting shut out. Marc Gasol lumbered about with 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting to go with five boards, five assists, one steal and three blocks, as both he and Zach Randolph (13 points, 4-of-13 FGs, eight boards, one steal, one block) played much worse than the stats suggested.
Tue, May 28, 2013 12:02:00 AM

Quincy Pondexter scored a team-high 17 points with one board and five 3-pointers in 29 minutes vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

He got hot in the third quarter and made the game close, but San Antonio responded with a 10-2 run to put the game out of reach. Pondexter had been fairly quiet in the playoffs with just 6.5 points per game, which is just a shade above his regular-season average of 6.4. He hit 5-of-9 from beyond the arc and chances are is that this will be his best game of the playoffs.

The Grizzlies clawed their way to a two-point win in Sacramento on Sunday, aided by Quincy Pondexter's season-high 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting.

Q-Pon added five rebounds and two steals in just 23 minutes, and he even hit one 3-pointer. Darrell Arthur (back) was a late scratch tonight, and surprisingly it was Pondexter picking up most of the slack rather than Ed Davis (two points, seven boards, two blocks in 18 minutes).
