Wayne Selden scored 10 points vs. the Kings on Friday with two assists and one block.

He was 5-of-12 from the field, but the big takeaway is that he played a season-high 30 minutes. MarShon Brooks played just 14 minutes and hit 2-of-8 shots for six points, so Selden should be the first wing off the bench going forward and could have some sneaky deep-league value while Dillon Brooks (knee) is out.
Nov 16 - 10:45 PM

Marc Gasol scored 19 points with 15 rebounds, two assists, two triples and four turnovers in Friday's 112-104 win over the Kings.

The big man hit 7-of-12 shots, but struggled at the line with a 3-of-5 mark. Gasol is returning top-25 value in standard category leagues and the Grizzlies just improved to 9-5, so unless his 34-year-old wheels fall off or his team goes off the rails, his value is safe for now. He also passed Zach Randolph for the most rebounds in franchise history, so it was a great all-around night in Memphis.
Nov 16 - 10:41 PM

Omri Casspi (right knee soreness) returned to action for Friday's game vs. the Kings, scoring six points with two boards and one triple in nine minutes.

He's basically the 9th or 10th man in the rotation and doesn't have any fantasy appeal.
Nov 16 - 10:37 PM

Kyle Anderson scored two points on 1-of-4 shots despite playing 31 minutes vs. the Kings on Friday.

One of the most disappointing players of the season strikes again. It wasn't all bad with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block, but it's hard to trust him in category leagues unless you're punting points or triples.
Nov 16 - 10:36 PM

Jaren Jackson Jr. scored a career-high 27 points (11-of-16 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs) with six rebounds, four steals, two blocks and one triple in 31 minutes vs. the Kings on Friday.

This is the kind of mouth-watering upside JJJ has, yet he just turned 19 two months ago. Fouls were an issue again tonight, as coach J.B. Bickerstaff pulled him with five minutes to go when the rookie picked up his fifth. We can't imagine that JJJ will cede the starting job when JaMychal Green (mouth) gets back, but stranger things have happened and we're talking about a coach who started Chandler Parsons on opening night. Either way, JJJ's fantasy arrow is pointing straight up.
Nov 16 - 10:31 PM

Ivan Rabb (illness) is not listed on the injury report for Friday's game vs. Sacramento.

Rabb was sidelined for Wednesday's win over the Bucks due to an illness but is on track to return to action on Friday. However, he's averaging just seven minutes per game in seven appearances this season, so this has no virtually no in fantasy hoops.
Nov 16 - 10:26 AM

Omri Casspi (right knee soreness) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

The 30-year-old has missed five games and his return will be a welcome addition to the Grizzlies' depth without JaMychal Green (jaw), Dillon Brooks (left knee) and Chandler Parsons (knee, back). He's unlikely to help fantasy owners.
Nov 15 - 5:53 PM

Garrett Temple scored 11 points (3-of-9 FG, 4-of-4 FT) with five rebounds, two assists, two steals, and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

Temple continues to play big minutes for the surprising Grizzlies. However, he's been really inconsistent, which makes him hard to own in standard leagues. Temple is more of a deep league guy as long as he's seeing ample playing time.
Nov 14 - 11:38 PM

Shelvin Mack scored 15 points (5-of-12 FG) with six rebounds, five assists, one steal, and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

Mack continues to be a key part of the Grizzlies' rotation as a bench scorer. He's been alternating good and back games lately, but is still worth a look in most 12-team leagues.
Nov 14 - 11:35 PM

Mike Conley scored 26 points (9-of-16 FG, 6-of-8 FT) with two rebounds, four assists, two steals, and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

Conley continued his rebound from a mini-slump last week with his third straight 20-point game. Continued success by the Grizzlies and good health from Conley are all that's preventing him from being a very good draft day value. He's having a nice bounce-back season so far.
Nov 14 - 11:26 PM

Marc Gasol scored 29 points (10-of-18 FG, 6-of-12 3PT, 3-of-5 FT) with five rebounds, two assists, one block, one steal, and a six 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

The six triples tied a career-high for Gasol. He's been doing his thing of late, averaging 18.2 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 4.8 assists with 2.0 threes and good defensive stats over his last five games. His shooting percentage isn't what you'd hope for from a center, but he more than makes up for it elsewhere. He's a stud when healthy.
Nov 14 - 11:21 PM

Jaren Jackson Jr. scored 13 points (5-of-8 FG, 2-of-3 FT) with two rebounds, one assist, two steals, and one 3-pointer in just 16 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

Jackson Jr. was in foul trouble, which limited him from having a bigger game. This was the first game in his last five that he was really in foul trouble, which is why he's been averaging a hair over 30 minutes per game. If he can stay on the floor consistently, he has the potential to soar in the rankings because of his versatility. This kid is good.
Nov 14 - 11:17 PM

Jevon Carter has been assigned to the Grizzlies' G-League affiliate.

He's a non-factor in the rotation, so he'll head down to the G-League for some much-needed experience. Leave him on the wire.
Nov 13 - 5:54 PM

Ivan Rabb (illness) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

He's not a significant part of the rotation in Memphis, so whether he plays or not is meaningless in fantasy hoops.
Nov 13 - 5:51 PM

Omri Casspi (right knee soreness) will remain on the sidelines for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

He's getting close, but Wednesday will mark his fifth straight game on the sidelines. Kyle Anderson should continue to see quality minutes while he's out. J.B. Bickerstaff said after Tuesday's practice that he's hopeful Casspi will be able to return for Friday's game vs. the Kings.
