Jon Leuer stepped into a starting role on Sunday, notching 16 points on 7-of-14 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 30 minutes of action.
Zach Randolph was out with a swollen knee, which led to Leuer's temporary promotion, and Randolph remains questionable for Monday's game. Daily-league owners should keep a close eye on the Grizzlies' injury report, as Leuer could once again be a solid value against the Jazz on Monday. Dec 21 - 7:09 PM

Date:

Jon Leuer made both of his 3-point attempts on Sunday, finishing an easy win vs. Miami with a season-high 20 points, 12 rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block.

He did his damage in a mere 24 minutes off the bench and his role is simply too chaotic to rely on him outside of very deep fantasy leagues -- he didn't even leave the Grizzlies' bench vs. the Spurs on Friday. Congratulations if you happened to have Leuer active for this unforeseeable double-double.
Dec 7 - 8:38 PM

Jon Leuer played 22 minutes off the bench in his return from the flu on Friday, scoring a season-high 19 points on 9-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one three.

Leuer got his numbers in this lightly contested game but he'll need to show consistency to get anybody's attention in most formats. Without an injury to Zach Randolph or Marc Gasol, it's hard to see him getting enough run to produce.
Nov 21 - 11:37 PM

Jon Leuer (illness) will suit up for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

Leuer is nothing more than a backup, and he's averaging 3.6 points and 2.6 rebounds on the season. As long as Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph are healthy, Leuer isn't going to be worth touching in standard leagues.
Nov 21 - 12:39 PM

Jon Leuer (illness) is questionable to face the Celtics on Friday.

Johnny Basketball has made some exciting plays for the Grizzlies, but he's not a regular contributor. Leuer has no fantasy value right now.
Nov 20 - 7:41 PM

Jon Leuer (illness) will not play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

The Grizzlies aren't too bad of shape in the front court and rookie Jarnell Stokes could get some minutes. Leuer should be considered questionable for Friday.
Nov 19 - 6:38 PM

Jon Leuer (flu) is questionable for Wednesday's game against Toronto.

He is not the only Grizzly battling the flu, joining Tony Allen, Kosta Koufos, Beno Udrih and Courtney Lee on the injury report. If Leuer sits this one out, rookie Jarnell Stokes will see an uptick in minutes, but not enough to warrant attention in most fantasy leagues.
Nov 19 - 1:27 PM

Grizzlies PF/C Jon Leuer scored 21 points in just 25 minutes during Friday's exhibition loss, making 8-of-15 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs with a full line vs. the Heat.

Leuer added seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and only turnover, and he picked up extra playing time because the Grizzlies' starters were given limited minutes as a precaution. Leuer proved valuable with Marc Gasol out in December last year, but he's a non-factor in fantasy leagues while the Grizzlies' frontcourt is healthy.
Oct 24 - 11:13 PM

Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger expects Jon Leuer to play a key role as a backup PF this season, but he wants him to be "more disruptive" defensively.

Leuer said that he's ready for the challenge. "I want to do more than just be a stretch four," he said. "I can put the ball on the floor and make plays for myself and teammates. I bring a lot of energy with the ability to rebound and defend." As long as Zach Randolph is healthy, fantasy owners shouldn't expect a big increase from Leuer's averages last season -- 6.2 points, 0.5 threes, 3.2 rebounds and 0.3 blocks per game.
Oct 8 - 10:16 AM

Grizzlies big man Jon Leuer had a double hernia operation in mid-August, but he said on Tuesday that he's "100 percent ... good to go."

He lost some weight while recovering from the operation but didn't sound concerned as Memphis opened their training camp with a practice heavy on running and conditioning drills. Leuer shouldn't be on typical fantasy radars while Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol and Kosta Koufos are all healthy.
Sep 30 - 6:37 PM

Jon Leuer came off the bench to hit 6-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 19 points and five rebounds in Wednesday's ugly loss at Brooklyn.

Zach Randolph was out with the flu, starters Ed Davis and Tayshaun Prince were invisible and the Grizzlies turned to their bench early and often in an ugly loss. Leuer posted some big lines earlier in the season, but there's no reason to think he's about ready to go on a run, as Randolph should be back soon. Ignore tonight's positive performance.
Mar 5 - 11:48 PM

Jon Leuer played 12 minutes on Friday and finished with two points, three rebounds and one assist.

Leuer hit 1-of-5 shots and Ed Davis' big night probably had something to do with that, but the bottom line is that Marc Gasol is coming back soon and even with 23 points on Sunday there's nothing to see here.
Jan 11 - 1:15 AM

Updating a previous item, Jon Leuer does not appear to be included in the proposed Jerryd Bayless-Courtney Lee deal.

There were some suggestions of Leuer being involved because of the size of Lee's contract compared to Bayless' deal, but the Grizzlies do have a $7.5 million trade exception from last year's Rudy Gay deal.

Jan 5 - 5:50 PM

Jon Leuer matched his career-high 23 points against the Pistons on Sunday to go with eight boards, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers on 8-of-13 shooting.

He scored seven points in the last 2:30 of this game, but he did do most of his damage in the first half with 16 points. Leuer's minutes dropped off significantly over his previous four games with just 11.8 per game. Fantasy owners can probably ignore this in most cases considering Leuer's value will likely evaporate once Marc Gasol comes back.
Jan 5 - 4:53 PM

Jon Leuer scored 11 points in just 15 minutes on Friday, hitting 4-of-6 shots (including a three) with three rebounds and one block.

Leuer has been off the fantasy radar over the last two weeks and with Marc Gasol returning soon he's probably bound to stay on waiver wires.
