MarShon Brooks scored nine points with four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday.
He had nowhere to go but down with his five straight 20-point games to start his season earlier the last two weeks, but this dud and a 14-point game weren't awful. The Grizzlies have a lot of guaranteed contracts for next year, so we'll see what the plans are for Brooks. It's great for him that his contract is guaranteed. Apr 11 - 11:49 PM

Date:

MarShon Brooks finally cooled off on Monday vs. the Wolves, scoring 14 points on 4-of-16 shooting.

He had to come back down to earth at some point, as Brooks was averaging 23.6 points, 3.6 assists, 3.4 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 3.2 triples while shooting an unsustainable 57.9% from the field in his previous five outings. He also turned the ball over five times tonight, but did hand out five assists with one board, two steals and two triples. Brooks will look to finish his season on a high note in Wednesday's season finale vs. OKC.
Apr 9 - 10:47 PM

MarShon Brooks scored 25 points in 26 minutes on Sunday vs. the Pistons, adding four assists, three rebounds, one steal and four triples.

He's now scored 21 or more points in all five of his appearances, averaging 23.6 points, 3.6 assists, 3.4 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 3.2 triples on 57.9% shooting. He won't stay this hot forever, but the Grizzlies deserve some credit for locking him up to a guaranteed two-year deal.
Apr 8 - 6:19 PM

MarShon Brooks started on Friday vs. the Kings with 23 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and one triple in 37 minutes.

The Grizzlies finally gave him a full workload after playing him an average of 25.3 minutes in his previous three games. It's easy to see why the Grizzlies quickly signed him to a two-year deal and it's not a stretch to think that he could be their best wing for 2018-19. He's a must-start player for their final three games and might be the only player you can rely on with Marc Gasol resting so much.
Apr 6 - 11:38 PM

Updating a previous item, MarShon Brooks will start over Deyonta Davis on Friday.

Yeah, these lineups are fun in Memphis tonight. Either way, you were starting MarShon regardless and he should be owned in all leagues.
Apr 6 - 8:13 PM

MarShon Brooks has agreed to a guaranteed two-year deal with Memphis, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

More like Mar$hon Brooks. The former Net and Celtic has been one of the hottest scorers in the NBA with 70 points over his last three outings. With the Grizzlies dealing with so many injuries, Brooks should be owned in all leagues.
Apr 6 - 1:33 AM

MarShon Brooks posted season-highs with 25 points, four rebounds and seven assists against the Pelicans during a 123-95 loss on Wednesday, adding five 3-pointers and two steals.

He was the first Grizzlies player ever to score 20-plus points in his first two games, so now he adds to that with a third. Brooks finally played huge minutes in this game after playing just 39 in his first two games combined. The Grizzlies may give him an extended look and Brooks looks like a hot pickup in most leagues.
Apr 4 - 10:47 PM

MarShon Brooks (ankle) is available to play against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He did not play on Sunday, so hopefully he can heat up in a hurry. Brooks scored 20-plus points in his first two games with the Grizzlies, and there should be minutes available.
Apr 4 - 7:35 PM

MarShon Brooks (ankle) is questionable to play Wednesday against the Pelicans.

Brooks sat out Sunday's game with the ankle issue, and while Memphis is clearly tanking, Brooks does have some extra incentive to try and get out there as he doesn't have a contract for next season. We should get another update following shootaround, but if he is able to get back out there, he'd be someone to consider streaming in deep leagues.
Apr 3 - 6:31 PM

MarShon Brooks (left ankle) will not play vs. Portland on Sunday.

It's unfortunate since Brooks has been terrific since joining the Grizzlies -- maybe the team was tired of him spoiling the tanking. Kidding aside, Brooks was basically a game-time decision and we'll call him day-to-day until Memphis provides another update.
Apr 1 - 8:03 PM

MarShon Brooks (left ankle) is questionable for Sunday against the Blazers.

He's the first player in Grizzlies history to score at least 20 points in each of his first two games with the team, so hopefully he can get out there to boost his value. Well, the Grizzlies may not want him out there.
Mar 31 - 8:07 PM

MarShon Brooks scored 24 points in just 18 minutes vs. the Jazz on Friday.

Wow. This comes on the heels of his 21-point debut on Wednesday with five 3-pointers, two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block. He was just as good in his second go around, hitting 8-of-13 shots and 7-of-7 free throws with two assists, one rebound, two steals and one triple. The Grizzlies lack firepower and Brooks has always been an excellent scorer, so it's probably time to add him for Sunday's game vs. the Blazers.
Mar 31 - 12:37 AM

MarShon Brooks scored 21 points in his second debut on Wednesday, going 7-of-12 from the field with five 3-pointers, two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block.

Brooks just signed a 10-day contract on Tuesday and this was his first NBA action since the 2013-14 season when he played for the Celtics, Warriors and Lakers. He played with complete confidence in 21 minutes tonight, and his efforts helped Memphis earn an upset win vs. the Blazers -- granted, it was costly since they're now tied with Atlanta after two straight wins. The Grizzlies are a mess due to injuries and tanking, but maybe Brooks will be a sneaky source of scoring and 3-pointers down the stretch. Most owners can take a wait-and-see approach here, though.
Mar 28 - 11:23 PM

MarShon Brooks plans to sign a 10-day contract with the Grizzlies, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

The former first-round pick has spent the last three years in China. He hasn't played in the NBA since the 2013-14 season.
Mar 27 - 12:21 PM

MarShon Brooks has re-signed with Jiangsu in China.

The lethal scorer hasn't played in the NBA since the 2013-14 season, but he's enjoying life in China and averaged 36.2 points per game last season. There's been no indication that the 28-year-old wing will return to the states any time soon.
