Player News - Grizzlies

Date: Team: Pos:

Memphis coach Dave Joerger admitted that Marc Gasol is basically "playing on one leg" at the moment.

Neither Joerger or Gasol would elaborate, but the big man has been on the injury report in recent weeks with a sore left knee. The All-Star break can't come soon enough for Gasol, but the good news is that there has been no indication that he will miss any time. Expect him to be out there on Monday vs. the Blazers.
Feb 7 - 9:56 AM

Marc Gasol scored 22 points in a loss to the Mavericks on Saturday with six boards, two assists and one block in 37 minutes.

He was an efficient 9-of-15 from the field, but he hit just 4-of-6 from the line and had a couple of turnovers. The Grizzlies were on a five-game winning streak coming into this one, but they will look to bounce back in a difficult matchup with the Blazers on Monday.
Feb 6 - 11:52 PM

Zach Randolph scored 20 points with 14 boards in 36 minutes vs. the Mavericks on Saturday.

He was a focal point of the Grizzlies' offense tonight and had a total of 21 shots, connecting on nine of them. Z-Bo also had two assists and one steal, but his production has been far from consistent lately. Even if you include this big line, Z-Bo is averaging just 14.0 points and 7.0 boards over his last five games, and he hasn't blocked a shot since Jan. 21. He's more of a late-round guy with the potential for an occasional outburst.
Feb 6 - 11:46 PM

Matt Barnes posted a double-double on Saturday vs. the Mavericks, scoring 17 points with 11 rebounds, five assists, one block and five 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

Wow. He just returned from a hamstring injury on Friday vs. the Knicks, so the fact that he was able to log 36 minutes in the overtime loss is a really good sign. Barnes is still flirting with top-80 value on the season, so he needs to be owned in standard leagues after a performance like this one.
Feb 6 - 11:42 PM

Jeff Green finally cooled off in Saturday's overtime loss to the Mavericks, scoring nine points on 4-of-14 shooting.

He was on fire in his previous five games with an average of 24.0 points per game, but he never had a shot of sustaining that pace. He still needs to be owned in standard leagues, but tonight's performance is one of the reasons why we urged his owners to sell high. He added five boards, three assists and one block in 35 minutes.
Feb 6 - 11:34 PM

Brandan Wright (knee) did some pre-game work on Saturday and could return after the break.

There have not been many updates on Wright, so it's good to see he's coming around. He has a decent upside, but won't have much value while Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol are healthy.
Feb 6 - 7:01 PM

Mike Conley will consider all options when he becomes a free agent this summer.

"I think everything will be on the table when the time comes," Conley said. "I haven’t committed to anything." The Grizzlies might be a little nervous following this quote, as Conley will have the ability to walk at the end of the season as an unrestricted free agent. Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace has already stated that Conley will be the team's "No. 1 priority" this summer, but there will certainly be a lot of competition for his signature.
Feb 6 - 1:27 PM

Matt Barnes (hamstring) returned during a 91-85 win over the Knicks on Friday with 12 points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

It was his first game at MSG since the Derek Fisher drama. In true Barnes fashion, he did some warming up on the Knicks side of the court before the game -- this was before other Knicks came out. Barnes should be able to flirt with top-100 value with his fantasy-friendly game.
Feb 6 - 12:29 AM

Jeff Green scored 16 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and no turnovers in 29 minutes against the Knicks in Friday's win.

He just thrives in wins and he's found his role off the bench. He's pretty close to his peak and he's putting up sixth-round value in his last 10 games. Green is a hold in all leagues, but selling high makes sense.
Feb 6 - 12:26 AM

Mario Chalmers was ejected for elbowing Sasha Vujacic on Friday night.

It was a flagrant 2 and it's hard to argue with the refs tossing him. Chalmers probably won't be suspended here and should be in the lineup against the Mavs on Saturday. He finished with eight points, three rebounds and two steals in 17 minutes.
Feb 5 - 9:30 PM

Matt Barnes (hamstring) will play against the Knicks on Friday.

"We should be fully loaded," coach Dave Joerger said. Yes, this means he gets his first game at MSG since the Derek Fisher drama. Barnes is still a hold in standard leagues, but he's lost some value with Jeff Green tearing it up.
Feb 5 - 6:09 PM

Matt Barnes (hamstring) remains questionable for Friday's game vs. the Knicks.

Given his history with Knicks head coach Derek Fisher, Barnes will do everything in his power to play tonight. He did go through the morning shootaround, so it sounds like he could be a game-time call. If he misses another game, Jeff Green and Tony Allen would benefit the most.
Feb 5 - 12:21 PM

Matt Barnes (right hamstring) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Knicks.

Matt Barnes sat out Monday's matchup with New Orleans, and given the tricky nature of hamstring injuries, it wouldn't be shocking to see him miss Friday's contest as well. Jeff Green, Tony Allen and Vince Carter will see an uptick in minutes if Barnes is out, with Green offering the most upside.
Feb 4 - 3:21 PM

Marc Gasol scored 14 points with three rebounds, seven assists and two blocks in 32 minutes against the Pelicans during a 110-95 win on Monday.

His knee was not a problem tonight as he handled the post nicely. Gasol's knee has been an issue in the last two seasons, but he still hasn't missed a game this season. The Grizzlies are off until Friday and have a back-to-back.
Feb 2 - 12:28 AM

Jeff Green made 8-of-13 from the field for 24 points with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

It's amazing how well Green plays when the Grizzlies win. In wins this year, Green averaged 14.6 points, 4.9 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 treys. In losses, it's just 8.4 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.5 treys. The Grizzlies are on a four-game winning streak and only James Harden has been better than Green in that span. He has to be owned.
