Marc Gasol scored 15 points with 12 rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block and three turnovers in 36 minutes during a 95-91 loss to the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He flirted with a triple-double on Monday and was even closer during this loss. Gasol caps his All-Star worthy first half with a career-highs 20.6 points and 4.3 assists. The new David Fizdale system has really opened up his game as a complete big, especially with his 1.4 treys per game.

Chandler Parsons scored nine points with one rebound, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He may have looked his best all season and had a pretty layup in this game (video in link below). Even with a week off, Parsons is still likely to see some days off for rest after the break. He is just not worth the trouble in most fantasy leagues.

Tony Allen did not score in his return to the lineup on Wednesday, adding just three rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes.

He got the night off on Monday, but did play 28.5 minutes per game in his games back on Friday and Wednesday. Allen was playing a lot earlier in the season due to some injuries on the wings, but he's likely to see his playing time drop as the postseason approaches.
Feb 15 - 11:11 PM

Brandan Wright scored six points with one rebound in 12 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He had his breakout game on Monday with 17 points, but the old "against the Nets" grain of salt applies here. Wright still has more bounce to his game, so the Grizzlies have to be encouraged as he heads into the break. He could be a sneaky DFS play when the Grizzlies rest their bigs.
Feb 15 - 11:07 PM

James Ennis scored four points with two steals in 15 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

It'll be interesting to see how Ennis fits in after the break, but you can rest assured Chandler Parsons will be resting at some point even with time off. Ennis will have some value in deep leagues as a fill-in guy, but that's about it.
Feb 15 - 11:03 PM

James Ennis will come off the Grizzlies' bench on Wednesday with Tony Allen back in action.

Allen was rested on Monday, gifting Ennis a fill-in start, and his return to the second unit was preordained. He's not an option in the vast majority of leagues.
Feb 15 - 7:54 PM

Tony Allen is back in the starting lineup against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He got Monday night off and should be back to seeing minutes in the 20s. With Allen back, James Ennis moves back to the bench.

Deyonta Davis has been recalled from the D-League.

He's probably not going to play tonight.

Vince Carter scored 14 points with four 3-pointers, three rebounds and two steals in Monday's win at Brooklyn.

The oldest player in the NBA, at 40 years old, showed brief flashes of his younger self against one of his former teams on Monday night. VC was lights out from long distance, knocking down four of the five 3-pointers he attempted.
Feb 13 - 10:43 PM

Brandan Wright scored a season-high 17 points with three rebounds and an assist in 21 minutes in Monday's victory over the Nets.

Wright was 7-of-9 from the floor and 3-of-3 from the charity stripe. He looked impressively spry and athletic on Monday. However, his fantasy upside is limited. As long as Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph remain healthy, it will be difficult for Wright to see enough minutes and scoring opportunities to make a consistent impact.
Feb 13 - 10:39 PM

Chandler Parsons finished with just two points, seven rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes in Monday's victory in Brooklyn.

Parsons sat out the Grizzlies previous game on Friday as part of his maintenance porgram. The 25 minutes on Monday actually tied a season-high for minutes played this season. The fact that he scored a total of two points in a game in which he tied his season-high in minutes tells you all you need to know about Parsons' 2016-17 fantasy campaign. He's probably not worth a roster spot in most standard leagues at this point.
Feb 13 - 10:32 PM

Marc Gasol just missed a triple-double in Monday's win over the Nets, finishing with 19 points, nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block.

Gasol was just 6-of-17 from the floor, including 0-of-4 from downtown, but he made all seven of his free throws. His rebound and assist totals were game-highs. Gasol is one of the more uniquely skilled big men in the NBA, and his full array of talents was on display Monday night.
Feb 13 - 10:23 PM

Mike Conley poured in a game-high 32 points and dished out six assists in Memphis' 112-103 victory over the Nets on Monday night.

Conley was incredibly effective and efficient. He committed only one turnover and was 10-of-16 from the floor, 2-of-4 from 3-point territory and 10-of-11 from the free throw line. Conley is the first Memphis player to score more than 30 points on 16 or fewer field goal attempts since Mike Miller in 2008. Conley came into the 2016-17 campaign with plenty of pressure after signing the richest contract in NBA history but has been consistently stellar throughout the season.
Feb 13 - 10:10 PM

Chandler Parsons is starting on Monday vs. the Nets.

Tony Allen is getting the night off to rest, so James Ennis will remain in the starting lineup alongside Parsons. Parsons is rested a ton and his restrictions have no end in sight, so he's not worth the trouble in most leagues right now.
