Player News - Grizzlies

Date: Team: Pos:

The Grizzlies suffered their second straight loss on Thursday, as Marc Gasol finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds and three assists in 39 minutes.

Gasol made one 3-pointer and blocked a shot, so it wasn't a total loss, but he shot just 6-of-15 from the field with six turnovers. Mike Conley was better with 22 points (7-of-18 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), six assists, two rebounds, one 3-pointer and three turnovers, but the Grizzlies' twin pillars didn't have enough to earn a road win in San Antonio tonight.

Zach Randolph had another quiet game on Thursday with eight points on 2-of-7 FGs and 4-of-6 FTs, seven rebounds, two assists, and zero defensive stats.

Z-Bo took the blame for the Grizzlies' loss on Tuesday, in which he grabbed 10 rebounds but went just 2-of-11 from the field to score four points. He didn't redeem himself tonight, and there are assuredly better options on your waiver wire -- over the past five games, Randolph is averaging 9.2 points on 33.3 percent shooting, 1.8 assists, and precisely zero defensive stats.
Mar 23 - 11:37 PM

Tony Allen (knee) started Thursday's game and finished with eight points on 4-of-9 shooting, four rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and zero turnovers in 29 minutes.

The Grizzlies won their first two games vs. the Spurs, both in Memphis, but they couldn't earn the road win tonight. Allen's return is good news for the Grizzlies' real-world prospects, but it doesn't matter too much for fantasy -- in his previous five games he averaged just 9.4 points on 42.2 percent FGs and 55.6 FTs, with minimal supporting stats.
Mar 23 - 11:34 PM

Tony Allen (knee) will start against the Spurs on Thursday.

He had some treatment earlier today and said he wants to be close to 100 percent before suiting up again. Allen is going to have his hands full against Kawhi Leonard tonight, but he doesn't have much fantasy value anyway.
Mar 23 - 7:37 PM

Tony Allen (knee) is likely to play against the Spurs on Thursday.

"It's looking positive," coach David Fizdale said. "I expect him to play." Allen went through shootaround and had some ice on his knee afterwards. He said it's going to be up to the training staff, but for now Allen is likely going to get minutes in the 20s. He's not really a fantasy options right now.
Mar 23 - 7:17 PM

Tony Allen (knee) said he will be a game-time decision for Thursday against the Spurs.

He said it'll be up to the training staff and he'll see how he feels after he warms up. Allen said he's been managing this left knee injury and said he wants to be close to 100 percent. He had a lot of ice on his knee after shootaround, as well. If he can't go, Troy Daniels, James Ennis, Vince Carter and Andrew Harrison will get a little added run.

Tony Allen (knee) went through treatment at Wednesday's practice in San Antonio and is likely questionable Thursday against the Spurs.

He did not play on Tuesday for his first DNP since the break. The Grizzlies started Wayne Selden for 16 minutes on Tuesday while Andrew Harrison and Troy Daniels also picked up some minutes. This is a situation to avoid in most fantasy leagues.
Mar 22 - 2:24 PM

Marc Gasol was held to 10 points on 5-of-13 shooting in a loss to the Pelicans on Tuesday.

The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for Memphis. Gasol salvaged his line with eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block, but the bad news for his fantasy owners is that the Grizzlies only have two more games this week. The Grizzlies are fighting for playoff seeding, so Gasol hopefully won't be rested any time soon.
Mar 21 - 11:32 PM

Troy Daniels scored 12 points on four 3-pointers in 24 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday.

Wayne Selden got the start in place of Tony Allen (knee), but Daniels looks like the better short-term pickup in very deep leagues. Daniels added two rebounds and two assists, and considering he was averaging 2.0 triples in 16.8 minutes per game prior to Tuesday, he's the definition of a 3-point specialist. With that said, the Grizzlies only play two more times this week and it's not clear if Allen will miss more time.
Mar 21 - 11:28 PM

Wayne Selden started vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday and scored four points with two rebounds and one steal.

He logged 16 minutes and finished 2-of-6 from the field, but all four of his misses were from beyond the arc. It's not clear if Tony Allen (knee) will miss more time, but if Tuesday was any indication, Selden is only worth a look in the deepest of leagues.
Mar 21 - 11:23 PM

Wayne Selden will start in place of Tony Allen (knee) on Tuesday vs. the Pelicans.

He played a single minute in his debut on Saturday vs. the Spurs, but he will get the start against his former team tonight -- Selden made three appearances for the Pelicans during his 10-day contract and averaged 5.3 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.3 triples. Most fantasy owners can just keep an eye on Selden for now.
Mar 21 - 7:51 PM

Tony Allen (knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Pelicans.

This is the first game Allen will miss due to injury since mid-November. James Ennis had replaced Allen in the starting lineup for a couple of games earlier this month, so he will likely draw the start on Tuesday night. Troy Daniels and Andrew Harrison will also see an uptick in minutes. This is a situation to avoid from a fantasy perspective.
Mar 21 - 1:39 PM

Chandler Parsons will undergo a meniscectomy to repair a partial tear of the medial meniscus in his left knee.

The surgery will be on Monday and it will end his season. After getting the big contract last summer, Parsons had one of the biggest letdowns in recent memory. This is also the third year he will head into the offseason with knee issues. Even with the Grizzlies being very careful with him, he still couldn't stay healthy. Hopefully, he'll be able to resume his offseason activities in a couple months.

Vince Carter scored 10 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two triples in 30 minutes vs. the Spurs on Saturday.

He also hit a pair of free throws and seven of his shot attempts came from beyond the arc. Since moving into the starting lineup on Mar. 13, VC is averaging 11.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.3 triples, but keep in mind that those averages include his fluky 24-point game with six triples vs. the Bucks. He's a low-end streaming option and the Grizzlies only play three times next week.
Mar 19 - 12:45 AM

Zach Randolph scored 17 points with seven rebounds in Saturday's win over the Spurs.

He snapped a streak of two straight games in single digits. Z-Bo finished 7-of-12 from the field in 26 minutes with two assists and a triple, but he's a low-end option next week with only three games on the schedule. If there's a player like Richaun Holmes or Ivica Zubac on your wire, it makes sense to move on from Z-Bo despite tonight's solid line.
