Zach Randolph scored 20 points with 10 rebounds in Friday's win over the Kings.

Z-Bo finished 7-of-14 from the field with a pair of assists in 24 minutes. He also hit multiple 3-pointers (two) for the first time as a Grizzly which included a 35-foot buzzer-beating triple. Randolph was coming off a six-point dud vs. the Wizards, but he's still averaging 14.2 points, 11.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists over his last five. His upside is low due to the lack of defensive stats, but he's worth owning right now.
Jan 21 - 12:21 AM

Marc Gasol scored 28 points in 33 minutes in Friday's 107-91 win over the Kings.

Gasol filled it up tonight, shooting 9-of-19 from the field and 7-of-7 from the line with nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and three triples in 33 minutes. Gasol has now scored 24+ points in three straight games, but his owners will want to make sure he's active on Saturday vs. the Rockets on the second night of a back-to-back set -- Gasol has rested twice this season and both DNPs occurred during back-to-back sets.
Jan 21 - 12:15 AM

James Ennis started in place of a resting Chandler Parsons on Friday vs. the Kings and scored 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting.

He played a team-high 35 minutes with six rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one triple, but he will return to the bench on Saturday vs. the Rockets. He's averaging 22.6 minutes per game as a reserve, so there's no reason to pick him up. Keep in mind that Parsons' role will eventually grow as well.
Jan 20 - 11:55 PM

Troy Daniels (knee) will not return on Friday vs. the Kings.

The Grizzlies are calling it a "right knee" injury for now but we should know more after the game. Daniels missed two shots and finished scoreless in eight minutes. Tony Allen should pick up some extra run in the second half.
Jan 20 - 9:21 PM

James Ennis will start for Chandler Parsons (rest) on Friday against the Kings.

It's scheduled rest for Parsons, so there's a good chance for Ennis for just tonight. In his previous starts, he averaged 9.0 points, 5.0 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.00 treys. He's not a fantasy option in most cases even as a stream.
Jan 20 - 7:54 PM

Chandler Parsons (rest) will not play against the Kings on Friday night.

He has not looked right at all and the Grizzlies are on a home-home back-to-back, so this isn't surprising. James Ennis is likely to get the start while the Grizzlies give a few extra minutes to Troy Daniels and Tony Allen. Parsons may be the most annoying player to own, so feel free to cut him.
Jan 20 - 7:33 PM

Marc Gasol scored 28 points against the Wizards on Wednesday during a 104-101 loss, adding two rebounds, seven assists, one block and one turnover in 39 minutes.

The Grizzlies aren't quite playing their best ball and are now down to the No. 7 seed. Gasol also hasn't played as well as he did in December with his January averages dropping in points, rebounds, blocks and treys. He gets two home favorable matchups over the weekend with the Kings on Friday and the Rockets on Saturday.
Jan 18 - 10:21 PM

JaMychal Green made 6-of-7 from the field for 15 points with 13 rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday.

That's two games in a row with at least 14 points after failing to hit double digits in points for his first five games of 2017. Green has seen a few slumps before, but he's still proven he should be owned in standard leagues with ninth-round value on the year.
Jan 18 - 10:13 PM

Chandler Parsons didn't do much in his 19 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday, scoring six points with two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

He was just 1-of-6 from the field to drop him to just 36.7 percent from the field on the season. Parsons has been an unmitigated disaster for his fantasy owners to this point and has barely been a top-300 player per game on the season. If there is anything promising out there, it makes some sense to drop Parsons.
Jan 18 - 10:04 PM

Zach Randolph grabbed eight of his 16 rebounds on the offensive end vs. Chicago on Sunday, adding 15 points, two assists and one 3-pointer.

In the process, Randolph passed Chris Webber for 88th on the NBA's all-time scoring list -- after Sunday's game he has 17,188 points in his career. He was awful to start tonight's game, but the veteran's newfound bench role hasn't prevented him from posting mid-round value over the Grizzlies' past 15 games.
Jan 16 - 12:15 AM

Tony Allen chipped in across the board on Sunday with four points, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block in 33 minutes.

The Grizzlies are now 8-13 in games they've trailed at halftime this season, which isn't shocking for a team that relies on their defense to win games. The veteran Allen isn't an obvious fantasy option, but he's worth owning with averages of 5.5 boards, 1.8 steals, and 10.1 points per game on 49.0 percent shooting.
Jan 16 - 12:12 AM

Tony Allen scored a season-high 22 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and three turnovers in 25 minutes against the Rockets during a 110-105 win.

He made his first eight attempts and finished 9-of-10 in another massive win for the Grizzlies. They were down 16 on the road in this game and now have five wins against the Warriors, Cavs and Rockets combined on the year. Mike Conley was effective as per usual with 17 points, six rebounds, nine assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.
Jan 14 - 1:41 AM

Zach Randolph scored 16 points with 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer against the Rockets on Friday.

Even with the Grizzlies going big, they still kept the Rockets in check from deep in the second half. Randolph posted his ninth double-double on the season in this game and was especially important in the second half, scoring 14 points after the break. Randolph is starting to flirt with mid-round value lately, which probably means it's time to sell high.
Jan 14 - 1:36 AM

Chandler Parsons made 1-of-7 from the field for five points with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

No revenge game here, folks. He attempted five shots from deep to drop him to just 11-of-47 (23.4 percent) on the season. He said he was also worried about his plus/minus, but he had the team-low -11 tonight. Parsons has been a disaster this season, so we obviously don't blame you on cutting him.
Jan 14 - 1:33 AM

Troy Daniels scored 13 points with three rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers against the Rockets on Friday.

Revenge game? He hit a clutch three in this game and coach David Fizdale sure does know when to call TD's number. Still, he's not someone most fantasy owners can trust. Just keep an eye on Daniels when a Grizzlies players has to miss time.
