Vince Carter (foot) is questionable to play against the Jazz on Tuesday.

He has been out since Jan. 29 and he is likely going to be back this week. Considering the amount of complications with foot injuries, the Grizzlies are likely going to take it easy on VC. Additionally, there could be a change coming to the starting lineup on the wing, so fantasy owners should see what happens with Courtney Lee, Jeff Green and Tony Allen.
Mar 2 - 3:02 PM

The Grizzlies have signed forward JaMychal Green to a three-year deal on Sunday according to Shams Charania of Real GM.

He has made just four brief appearances for the Grizzlies this season, and he likely won't have any fantasy value for the foreseeable future. Leave Green on the wire.
Mar 1 - 1:54 PM

Marc Gasol scored 27 points against the Wolves during a 101-97 win on Saturday with 11 rebounds, four assists and two blocks.

He made 11-of-14 from the field tonight and bounced back nicely from an 11-point game on Friday. Unlikely his teammate Zach Randolph, Gasol is cruising in the second half with averages of 17.4 points, 7.6 boards, 3.8 assists, 2.6 blocks and 0.4 steals. He's one of the best big men to own in fantasy.

Zach Randolph had one of his worst games of the season against the Wolves on Saturday with seven points, 11 rebounds, one block and seven turnovers.

He hasn't come out strong in the second half, averaging 13.8 points, 9.0 boards, 1.6 assists and 0.4 blocks in those five games. Randolph isn't going to be quite as good as he was earlier this year and he probably won't be the 19-14 guy he was back in January.
Feb 28 - 10:54 PM

Tony Allen scored 11 points against the Wolves on Saturday with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one turnover against.

Coach Dave Joerger said he could be looking to make a tweak to the starters on the wing, which means Allen would likely move into the first unit. However, his minutes and opportunities to score probably won't change much. Allen has been outside of the top 200 in the past month, so he's not worth owning right now.
Feb 28 - 10:51 PM

Mike Conley's struggles continued during a 97-79 loss to the Clippers on Friday with four points, three rebounds, two assists and two turnovers.

He might still be dealing with a wrist issue because he's just not right these days. In his last six, Conley averaged just 9.8 points, 2.7 boards, 4.7 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.5 treys. If your trade deadline hasn't passed yet, he's a great buy-low target.
Feb 28 - 2:06 AM

Marc Gasol only had 11 points with eight rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal in 31 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.

While DeAndre Jordan is a beast, the Clippers are actually quite vulnerable to allowing big lines to centers. Gasol hasn't been scoring as much, but he has 2.1 blocks per game in February and is still flirting with first-round value on the season for standard leagues.
Feb 28 - 2:02 AM

Zach Randolph had 20 points, five rebounds and a 62-foot 3-pointer at the halftime buzzer, yet the Grizzlies lost to DeMarcus Cousins and the Kings on Wednesday.

Jeff Green scored 11, Marc Gasol had 14 points, seven boards, six dimes and three blocks, Mike Conley had 12 points and seven dimes, and Courtney Lee added nine points and a full stat line in the loss. Z-Bo got into it with Boogie and picked up a technical foul for swinging elbows, while Cousins got the last laugh with the win (and 16 points and nine rebounds). The Grizzlies are a pretty boring fantasy team right now, as the starters are the only players worth owning and looking at.

Vince Carter (foot) is hoping to practice in the next 7-10 days.

He doesn't have a timetable to return and he is likely going to need a few days of practice before he can suit up and play. Fantasy owners can leave him on the wire.
Feb 26 - 1:51 AM

Jeff Green hit 5-of-12 shots with three treys in Monday's win, finishing with 16 points, six rebounds, two assists and a steal against the Clippers.

Green had a decent outing on Sunday but between that game and tonight's contest we're not seeing a major shift in value. With low upside owners can look at him as a potential short-term solution but expecting more is probably too optimistic.
Feb 24 - 1:34 AM

Mike Conley played through a sore left wrist vs. Portland on Sunday, hitting 6-of-15 shots to finish with 15 points, one 3-pointer, six rebounds, eight assists and two steals.

His wrist has bothered him since late January and it's concerning that it didn't fully heal during the All-Star break, though for now there are no indications that he'll miss any games. Tonight's line is reason enough to keep him active in all leagues -- he also blocked a shot for just the sixth time all season and didn't turn the ball over in 30 minutes of action.
Feb 23 - 12:05 AM

Marc Gasol filled up the stat sheet vs. Portland on Sunday with 21 points, six rebounds, four assists and three blocks.

He shot 9-of-17 from the field and 3-of-3 from the free throw line, and aided 9-cat owners by turning the ball over just once in 36 minutes. This is a typical performance from Gasol, who has bounced back from a disappointing 2013-14 campaign to rack up top-20 fantasy value during his current All-Star season.
Feb 22 - 11:55 PM

Jeff Green got going offensively vs. Portland, making 6-of-9 shots to finish Sunday's road victory with 12 points, five rebounds, one steal and zero turnovers in 25 minutes.

This is a mild relief for Green's fantasy owners, as he was shooting a mere 36.0 percent over his past eight games, averaging 11.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists with negligible defensive stats during that span. He's been a liability in 12-team leagues since joining the Grizzlies and this solid per-minute effort isn't enough to change the equation.
Feb 22 - 11:53 PM

Courtney Lee scored 19 points vs. Portland on Sunday, making 6-of-8 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs with a pair of 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists and one steal.

C-Lee didn't commit a single turnover in 30 minutes and this was an unexpected bonus for deep-league owners who started him despite his recent struggles. Lee didn't score in his last outing and he's scored double-digit points just three times in his past eight games. Jeff Green's arrival in Memphis has scuttled C-Lee's promising start to the season and he's best suited to the waiver wire in standard leagues.
Feb 22 - 11:47 PM

The Grizzlies have sent Jarnell Stokes and Russ Smith down to the NBA D-League on Sunday.

They are not going to be in the Grizzlies' rotation this season and will have to develop their games in the D-League for now. Leave Stokes and Smith on the wire.
