Wayne Selden came off the bench and hit 7-of-15 shots and three 3-pointers for 17 points, three rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes on Monday.
Tyreke Evans was a late scratch and Selden stepped up with a solid game for the second straight time. He had 16 points, three boards, one assist, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers on Saturday, but will only be worth using if Evans continues to sit for the tanking Grizzlies. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of sure bets in Memphis right now, as the NBA enters the peak of its silly season. Mar 19 - 11:13 PM

Wayne Selden scored 16 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

It's been since January that Selden was turning heads in the NBA and he hasn't scored in double digits since January, too. Maybe he can get hot, but obviously he needs to show he can stay healthy before signing off on him as a pickup.
Mar 17 - 11:22 PM

Wayne Selden (knee) returned to action on Monday vs. the Spurs, playing just 15 minutes with two points, two assists and a turnover.

Even with the Grizzlies banged up, Selden may not be able to get much run because he's having trouble staying on the floor himself. The opportunity is there with Tyreke Evans (ribs) day-to-day and Andrew Harrison (wrist) and Mario Chalmers (hamstring) expected to miss at least a week, but Selden can be left on the wire for now.
Mar 5 - 11:13 PM

Wayne Selden (knee) will not play against the Magic on Saturday, but he is expected to play Monday.

He only played 10 minutes on Friday and he's still not well enough to play today. It'll be really tough to count on Selden over the long haul. Kobi Simmons and Mario Chalmers will be picking up the PG minutes tonight.
Mar 3 - 5:45 PM

Wayne Selden (right knee soreness) is questionable for Saturday's contest vs. Orlando.

Selden was also questionable for Friday's game vs. Denver, but this is the second night of a back-to-back set, and that could certainly impact his availability given that he just returned to action after three weeks on the sidelines. Even if Selden does play, we don't expect more 10-15 minutes at best. With Tyreke Evans (rib) and Andrew Harrison (wrist) having already been ruled out, Mario Chalmers and Ben McLemore should be incredibly busy.

Wayne Selden scored three points with three rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer on 1-of-6 from the field over his 10 minutes of action against the Nuggets on Friday.

He made his return for the first time since Feb. 10 and the Grizzlies did indeed keep his minutes down. Maybe Selden gets his minutes increased on Saturday, but of course he could also get the night off. Leave him on the wire until we find out what the plan is for Saturday.
Mar 2 - 10:30 PM

Wayne Selden (knee) will play on Friday night against the Nuggets.

He will be playing limited minutes after missing time since Feb. 10. Selden has been productive when given a chance, but the Grizzlies haven't had him healthy for most of the season. He should be busy in his limited minutes with Andrew Harrison and Tyreke Evans out tonight. Mario Chalmers will also get some decent run.
Mar 2 - 6:24 PM

Coach JB Bickerstaff said that Wayne Selden (knee) is expected to play Friday vs. the Nuggets.

Selden has missed six straight games, but appears on track to return to the lineup Friday night. With Tyreke Evans (ribs) and Chandler Parsons (illness) already ruled out, and Andrew Harrison (wrist) listed as questionable, the Grizz may be shorthanded on Friday. However, Memphis will likely keep Selden on a minutes cap if he is cleared to play.
Mar 2 - 12:12 PM

Wayne Selden (knee) is questionable to play against the Nuggets on Friday.

If Selden can shake his nagging right-leg injuries, there's a chance he gets in the starting lineup with Andrew Harrison (wrist) also on the injury report. If not and Harrison is out, Kobi Simmons would likely be looking at his biggest opportunity with Mario Chalmers also getting more run.
Mar 1 - 5:56 PM

Wayne Selden (knee) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Suns.

Tyreke Evans (ribs) and Chandler Parsons (illness) will join Selden on the sidelines on Wednesday night, which should result in more minutes for Dillon Brooks, Jarell Martin and Kobe Simmons. Selden belongs the waiver wire in all formats.
Feb 27 - 6:19 PM

Wayne Selden (right knee soreness) will not play vs. Boston on Monday.

The Grizzlies are also playing without Chandler Parsons (illness) and Tyreke Evans (ribs), so minutes should be plentiful for guys like Dillon Brooks, Jarell Martin and even Kobi Simmons, who logged 23 minutes on Saturday.
Feb 25 - 6:28 PM

Wayne Selden (right knee soreness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Miami.

Selden was sidelined for the final two games prior to the All-Star break, as well as the first game back (vs. the Cavs on Friday). Tyreke Evans (rib) has also been ruled out, leaving the Grizz a bit shorthanded on the wing.
Feb 24 - 12:54 PM

Wayne Selden (right knee soreness) will not play on Friday against the Cavs.

The same injury kept him out for the final two games of the first half, and there's a chance this is related to his right quad issue that kept him out to start the season. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 22 - 7:37 PM

Wayne Selden (right knee soreness) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. OKC.

This will be the second straight game Selden has missed. Memphis plays again on Wednesday, but they then will have eight days off during the All-Star break. The Grizz were likely erring on the side of caution by siting out Selden on Wednesday.
Feb 13 - 6:00 PM

Wayne Selden (right knee soreness) will not play on Sunday against the Thunder.

He was one of the biggest fantasy losers of the trade deadline with the Grizzlies shockingly holding Tyreke Evans. Selden is a fairly easy drop in just about all leagues.
