Tayshaun Prince started for the Grizzlies on Saturday, finishing with eight points and four rebounds in 26 minutes.
Courtney Lee and Tony Allen were both given the night off, which quickly explains why Prince was in the starting five. And if we were given a choice between drafting Prince, the musician, or Tayshaun, we'd probably go with the 5'2" guitar player. Oct 11 - 11:06 PM

The Grizzlies declined a proposed trade which would have sent Tayshaun Prince and the No. 22 pick to Toronto for John Salmons and the No. 37 pick.

The Grizzlies would have sacrificed a solid pick, which they turned into Jordan Adams, just to dump the remaining $7.7 million on Prince's contract. They're still eager to unload him, but are unlikely to find any takers for their unproductive, overpaid veteran SF. As for Salmons, the Raptors are fully expected to waive him before June 30 -- the final year on his contract is only guaranteed for $1 million.

Tayshaun Prince could be headed to the Raptors as part of a deal that involving draft picks.

The proposed deal would send Prince and his $7.7 million expiring contract to Toronto along with the 22nd pick in Thursday's draft. The Grizzlies would receive John Salmons and the 59th pick in return, while this trade would give the Raptors the 20th and 22nd pick in the draft and allow them to potentially move up in the draft. Prince averaged 6.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.6 assists with the Grizzlies during the 2013-14 season and doesn't hold much fantasy value for the 2014-15 season no matter where he's playing.

Tayshaun Prince struggled with a lingering migraine during Monday's game, scoring two points in 14 minutes of action.

Tony Allen took over primary defensive duties against Kevin Durant and he fared well, denying KD the ball and staying close to his body when he did have possession. Prince should be ready to go for Game 3 on Thursday.

Tayshaun Prince (illness) practiced on Sunday and is expected to start against the Thunder on Monday.

He missed the second half of Saturday's game due to the illness, but the Grizzlies probably aren't going to play him much in order to give Tony Allen more run. Prince may still be getting over an ankle injury from earlier this month and he's not likely to be much of a factor in this series.
Apr 20 - 4:27 PM

Tayshaun Prince will miss the second half of Saturday's Game 1 against the Thunder due to an illness.

He played just four minutes and failed to score in the first half, and Tony Allen started the second half in his place. This could end up being a permanent move, as Prince was highly ineffective this season. It also may not matter, as the Thunder are trouncing the Grizzlies and are playing on a different level.
Apr 19 - 11:13 PM

Tayshaun Prince (ankle) returned to the Grizzlies' starting lineup on Sunday, scoring nine points with one 3-pointer, five rebounds, two assists and one block in 21 minutes.

Prince missed three games with his sprained ankle, during which time James Johnson stepped into the starting SF job. Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger has been committed to Prince as a starter all season, though he's provided negligible fantasy value in 26 minutes per game.

Tayshaun Prince was a participant in Sunday's shootaround, and he is officially a game-time decision vs. the Lakers.

Tayshaun is a guy who offers much more to his real life team, than to a fantasy team. If Tayshaun does suit up, he will essentially cancel out the value James Johnson. Check back closer to the tip for official confirmation on Prince's status.

Tayshaun Prince will miss Friday's game against the Sixers with a sprained left ankle.

He's expected to travel over the weekend and could be available for future games, but James Johnson will likely get another start on Friday.
Apr 10 - 1:13 PM

Tayshaun Prince (ankle) will not play against the Heat on Wednesday night.

James Johnson will get the start in Prince's place. Prince went down with an ankle sprain back on Friday and could miss his third game on Friday vs. the Sixers. Johnson is a high-risk, high-reward play tonight for his output in defensive stats.
Apr 9 - 6:33 PM

Tayshaun Prince, who missed Sunday's game and Tuesday's practice with a sprained left ankle, is questionable for Wednesday against the Heat.

If he's out again, look for James Johnson to have a decent game against LeBron and company.
Apr 8 - 1:01 PM

Tayshaun Prince (left ankle sprain) didn't travel with the Grizzlies to San Antonio and he will not play on Sunday.

Prince hurt himself at the end of the first half on Friday. James Johnson immediately replaced him in the lineup, but Mike Miller started the second half and Tony Allen picked up extra minutes as a reserve, whereas Johnson never left the bench after halftime. Miller might be the most worthwhile option for owners in need of 3-pointers, but there isn't a ton of upside among the Grizzlies' swingmen.

Tayshaun Prince (left ankle sprain) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Nuggets.

The Grizzlies will likely go with a team approach of Mike Miller, James Johnson and Tony Allen while Prince is out. With those guys more focused on filling in at small forward, Courtney Lee also benefits because he should get more time at shooting guard. Miller started the second half.
Apr 4 - 8:35 PM

Tayshaun Prince, who somehow scored 21 points on Monday, didn't hit a shot or do anything relevant in just 17 minutes of Wednesday's ugly loss to the Nets.

The Grizzlies outscored the Nets 34-16 in the fourth quarter and still lost by nine, so there's not a lot to learn from this game. However, what we already knew was that Prince's 21-point performance on Monday had fluke written all over it. When you toss out Monday's game, Prince has scored a grand total of 21 points in his other four games over his last five. Ignore him.
Mar 5 - 11:42 PM

Tayshaun Prince scored 21 points vs. the Wizards on Monday with six boards, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

He was a little more involved tonight with James Johnson (ankle) not playing and Courtney Lee getting into some early foul trouble. Prince hasn't really had his numbers translate to fantasy in quite some time, so there's really no reason to add him based on a rare productive line.
