James Ennis (calf) has progressed to going through non-contact, on-court work, and he will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days.
That means Ennis will miss all of Memphis' games this upcoming week, which means Troy Williams and Troy Daniels will get all the run they can handle with Tony Allen flirting with close to 30 minutes. Ennis is not worth stashing in most leagues. Dec 5 - 3:06 PM

James Ennis (calf) is out through the weekend and his status will be updated on Monday.

The Grizzlies didn't add much in their update on his status on Friday. With Ennis out, both Troy Williams and Troy Daniels have played very well and could even take minutes from Ennis upon his return. Ennis isn't worth stashing.
Dec 2 - 6:36 PM

James Ennis will reportedly miss the next two weeks of action with a Grade II right calf strain.

Chandler Parsons (knee) will also be spending roughly the next two weeks on the sidelines, leaving a gaping hole at the three-spot in Memphis. Tony Allen, Vince Carter and Troy Williams will likely be picking up the bulk of the small forward minutes, and there's a chance Williams could move into the starting lineup. Allen is basically just a steals specialist, while Carter can help out with some triples and assists, although neither of these guys are necessarily must-adds in standard leagues. Williams is a wait-and-see guy in most settings.

James Ennis (right calf injury) will not return to Monday's game vs. the Hornets.

He started in place of Chandler Parsons (knee) and was playing well with seven points, two assists and one triple in 13 minutes. The Grizzlies have more three more games this week, but the severity of Ennis' injury is not known at this time. Vince Carter and Troy Daniels will pick up the slack in the second half.
Nov 21 - 8:18 PM

Mike Conley, James Ennis, Tony Allen, JaMychal Green and Marc Gasol will start against the Wolves on Saturday.

The 1-3 spots were all on the injury report, but they're good to go. They may see slightly fewer minutes on the second night of a back-to-back.
Nov 19 - 7:48 PM

James Ennis (toe) is available on Saturday.

He is good to go and should get the start with a decent amount of minutes. Ennis is worth a look in deep leagues.
Nov 19 - 7:13 PM

James Ennis (right toe sprain) is listed as probable to play against the Timberwolves on Saturday.

Ennis was initially listed as questionable on Friday, but ended up playing 30 minutes in the Memphis win. Ennis would see additional minutes if Chandler Parsons is sidelined on Saturday.
Nov 19 - 1:28 PM

James Ennis (toe) played 30 minutes vs. the Mavericks on Friday with five points, six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one triple.

He was questionable to play due to a sprained toe, but he looked fine despite the quiet line. Ennis' upside isn't nearly as high with Chandler Parsons back in the lineup, but he's still played 30 and 31 minutes in his last two games. Regardless, he's more of a deep-league guy moving forward.
Nov 19 - 12:25 AM

James Ennis (toe) will play against the Mavs on Friday.

He has a new injury with a toe sprain, but he was never really in jeopardy despite the questionable tag. His minutes should drop with Tony Allen active.
Nov 18 - 8:13 PM

James Ennis (right toe sprain) is questionable to play against the Mavs on Friday.

It's a new injury for Ennis. He has been starting at shooting guard with Tony Allen (groin) out of the lineup, but he may shift to a bench role once the Grizzlies get healthy. He's more of a deep-league asset for fantasy leagues.
Nov 17 - 6:48 PM

James Ennis will start at shooting guard again on Saturday.

This move looks like it'll stick at least until Tony Allen comes back. Ennis can play three positions due to his size and his shooting helps space the floor on offense. His upside isn't great, though.
Nov 12 - 8:03 PM

Coach David Fizdale said James Ennis "didn't miss a beat" as the starting shooting guard.

He got the start at shooting guard on Tuesday and it sounds like there may be more on the way. The Grizzlies are shifting Andrew Harrison to more of a point guard, so Ennis may have another avenue for minutes with Chandler Parsons getting an minutes bump. Keep an eye on Ennis as a punt in DFS or a pickup in 16-team leagues.
Nov 10 - 5:37 PM

James Ennis started on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets with nine points, three rebounds, two assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

He moved back into the starting lineup with Tony Allen (groin) out. Ennis' upside is going to be limited with Chandler Parsons back, but could have some short-term value if Allen misses more time. Keep in mind that the Grizzlies are off until Saturday.
Nov 8 - 11:25 PM

James Ennis is drawing the start in place of Tony Allen (groin) on Tuesday.

Interesting. Ennis is actually looking a lot of minutes now, especially since Chandler Parsons isn't ready for a full workload. Vince Carter should also get a bump with Allen out.
Nov 8 - 7:44 PM

James Ennis will come off the bench against the Blazers on Sunday.

He was playing very well in his six starts, averaging 11.5 points, 7.8 boards, 0.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.3 treys. Ennis will likely see his playing time drop into the lower 20s, so he's more of a 16-team guy with a downward trend.
