Despite it only being a nine-point loss, this game was a blowout and over in the third quarter. Stokes usually plays power forward, so he probably won't benefit should Marc Gasol (knee) need to miss time.

Jarnell Stokes say the first minutes of his NBA career during Monday's blowout win over the Rockets.

Stokes scored four points to go along with two rebounds during his first six minutes of NBA action after being selected in the second round of the 2014 NBA Draft. While it's nice to see the Memphis native get some playing time, he's not going to see enough minutes to warrant any attention from fantasy owners.

Jarnell Stokes won't see any action anytime soon according to coach Joerger.

"Jarnell Stokes is going to have a tough time playing. He's not going to play in front of those four guys at any point," Joerger said. "If someone turns an ankle, though, then he becomes very important." This news reiterates the fact that Stokes can be ignored in almost all fantasy leagues, as he will likely float between the Grizzlies and the D-league all season.

Grizzlies rookie PF Jarnell Stokes has earned praise from veteran teammates Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol.

"He’s really strong and he knows how to use his strength," Gasol said, while Randolph compared Stokes to NFL defensive lineman Julius Peppers. The rookie isn't a likely fantasy asset, admitting after a recent practice, "I’ll have to find different ways to be effective as far as rebounding, setting hard screens and learning the offense. I feel like that’s the only way I’ll be able to find my way on the floor right now."
