Date: Team: Pos:

James Ennis (calf) is available to play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

He was called questionable to play on Tuesday from what was likely an injury on Monday. He should come off the bench and could be looking at minutes around 20. Ennis isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 17 - 7:08 PM

Brandan Wright will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

He's been out of the rotation anyway, so the Grizzlies won't miss him too much. Although, not having Marc Gasol (illness) means Deyonta Davis should have some extended run heading his way tonight.
Jan 17 - 6:23 PM

Marc Gasol (illness) and Brandan Wright will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

Well, the Grizzlies are going to be short up front today, and chances are it'll be Deyonta Davis getting the start. Gasol was very sick this morning, so it's possible he won't be ready for Friday. For tonight, Davis makes some sense as a DFS punt play or as a stream in 14-team leagues. Expect to see more Jarell Martin, as well.
Jan 17 - 6:22 PM

Marc Gasol (illness) did not go through shootaround and is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

Gasol is likely going to be a game-time call tonight, but if he is forced to the sidelines, Deyonta Davis or Brandan Wright would draw the start, while Tyreke Evans' usage rate would likely go into the ridiculous range. JaMychal Green would also spend more time at the five than usual. Stay tuned.

Chandler Parsons (right knee soreness) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

Although the Grizzlies have confirmed that Parsons doesn't have any structural damage to his knee, he hasn't played since the calendar flipped to 2018. Even after he is finally cleared for contact, he will have strict minute limitations and will be held out of back-to-backs. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 16 - 6:06 PM

James Ennis (right calf) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

This is the first we're hearing of a calf issue for Ennis, but we'll have a better idea on his status based on what he can do at Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he's out, his minutes will likely be divvied up between Dillon Brooks and Jarell Martin.
Jan 16 - 6:03 PM

Deyonte Davis played 14 minutes and hit 4-of-5 shots for 10 points, five rebounds and a career-high five blocks in Monday's 123-114 win over the Lakers.

He was great in limited minutes tonight, but unless Marc Gasol gets traded (which is a real possibility), Davis doesn't get enough run to be used in most fantasy leagues. And over his last five games, despite tonight's solid one, he's averaging just 2.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in eight minutes per game.
Jan 15 - 8:49 PM

James Ennis hit 4-of-6 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 21 minutes of Monday's win over the Lakers.

Ennis had 12 points, five boards, a block and two 3-pointers in his previous game, making him worth a watchful eye right now. But Chandler Parsons should be back from his knee injury soon, which could hurt him. And even if Parsons remains out, Ennis would only be a deep-league option at this point.
Jan 15 - 8:45 PM

Jarell Martin hit 4-of-5 shots for 10 points and three rebounds in 21 minutes off the Grizzlies bench on Monday.

Martin didn't score in his last game, but has been playing fairly well since just before Christmas. But he really doesn't offer much outside of some low scoring, making him tough to use, even in the deepest of leagues. He just saw his shot get hot tonight.
Jan 15 - 8:43 PM

Tyreke Evans had 15 points, nine rebounds, 12 assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 36 minutes of Monday's 123-114 win over the Lakers.

He looked great again, as usual, and just missed a triple-double when teammate JaMychal Green stole a late rebound from him. Evans has had an awesome bounce-back season and should be owned and started everywhere, but things could change for him if he's traded before the deadline. If you've been thinking about selling high on him and are worried about him being traded to an unfavorable situation, the sell-high window is wide open right now.
Jan 15 - 8:40 PM

Dillon Brooks hit 6-of-8 shots and 4-of-5 3-pointers for 19 points, four rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes of Monday's 123-114 win over the Lakers.

That ties his season high in scoring, as he's had two other 19-point games this season, but they came early. He had scored a grand total of 15 points in his previous three games and doesn't get many rebounds, assists, blocks or steals. He belongs on waivers in most leagues, unless he's going to start scoring like this on a regular basis.
Jan 15 - 8:37 PM

JaMychal Green hit 4-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, nine rebounds and one assist in Monday's 123-114 win over the Lakers.

Green went off for 20 points, 14 rebounds, two steals and a block last Wednesday, then had a five-point dud on Friday before playing fairly well today. He's not going to do much besides score and rebound, and he doesn't exactly destroy those categories, but he's playing well enough to be given a look in most leagues if you're desperate for a big man.
Jan 15 - 8:34 PM

Chandler Parsons (right knee soreness) will not play on Monday vs. the Lakers.

He doesn't have any structural damage and recently said that he's day-to-day, but he hasn't been cleared for contact yet. Given his injury history, the Grizzlies aren't going to take any chances. He belongs on the wire in all but the deepest of leagues.
Jan 15 - 10:50 AM

Mike Conley (Achilles) will not play on Monday vs. the Lakers.

Conley did progress to 3-on-3 at practice last week, but he still doesn't have a timetable and we'll continue to list him as out indefinitely for the time being. The Grizzlies are 14th in the West, so they will take every precaution.
Jan 15 - 10:47 AM

The Grizzlies are signing F Myke Henry to a two-way contract, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

Henry is averaging 15.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists for OKC's G-League affiliate this season. No fantasy impact to note here, as it is highly unlikely Henry earns a spot in the Memphis rotation.
