Zach Randolph logged his 11th consecutive double-double against the Nuggets in a 99-69 win on Thursday with 15 points, 17 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover.

He also had a career-high 17 consecutive double-digit boards with tonight's win. Randolph's stats in 2015 were already extremely impressive before this game, averaging 19.6 points, 13.1 boards, 2.8 assists and 0.5 blocks on 59.2 percent from the field. What's more, Z-Bo is making an unsustainable 51.9 percent on his mid-range shots in 2015. He's a sell-high player, but his fantasy owners can certainly just enjoy the ride if they want to.

Tony Allen played 21 minutes in his return to the lineup on Thursday with eight points, nine rebounds, one steal and one turnover.

He missed his last two games with an ankle sprain. Allen has seen his minutes drop with the acquisition of Jeff Green, so he's going to be a tough player to own in standard leagues.
Jan 30 - 12:01 AM

Beno Udrih played 23 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday with 11 points, two rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer.

Thanks to the Grizzlies blowing teams out, Udrih hasn't put up great numbers in his last two starts. It's nice to see the Grizzlies play well without Mike Conley and they might be a little more cautious in putting him back in the lineup. Still, Udrih's fantasy value has a short shelf life.

Vince Carter (foot) will not return to Thursday's game and will have an MRI.

It's only being called a "left foot injury" right now. Carter was able to walk around and put weight on his foot in the locker room, so hopefully that's a sign that he's not dealing with a major issue. There are some reports that there could be a sprain of his foot.
Jan 29 - 9:21 PM

Vince Carter (foot) left Thursday's game in the second quarter and went to the locker room.

It did not look good and he needed help off the court. Carter looked emotional and hopefully he didn't suffer a serious injury. We'll be looking for an update and pass along the word as soon as it's available.
Jan 29 - 8:50 PM

Mike Conley (wrist) will not play against the Nuggets on Thursday night.

This will be his second game out of the lineup due to his wrist injury. The 2015 part of the season has not been nice to Conley with two ankle sprains and this current issue costing him time. There's no indication that this issue will linger on, so he can be considered as a buy-low candidate. Beno Udrih is a nice option in DFS tonight.
Jan 29 - 7:28 PM

Mike Conley (wrist) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Nuggets.

Conley dressed for Tuesday's game against Dallas, but he did not leave the bench, and it's looking like we're not going to get an official update on Conley's status until just before the tip. If he does indeed spend another game on the sidelines, Beno Udrih and Nick Calathes would split minutes at point guard. Stay tuned.
Jan 29 - 6:49 PM

Jarnell Stokes has been suspended two games for fighting with his D-League teammates Kalin Lucas.

Stokes is not a part of the Grizzlies rotation so there aren't any fantasy implications here.

Tony Allen (ankle) will play against the Nuggets on Thursday.

Allen will return after missing the Grizzlies' last two games, but he doesn't have much fantasy value fighting for minutes with Jeff Green, Courtney Lee, and Vince Carter. Allen can be left on waiver wires in standard leagues while his return will put a dent in the fantasy values of his aforementioned teammates.
Jan 29 - 1:24 PM

Mike Conley (wrist) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Nuggets.

Conley almost crashed Twitter with daily players searching for a status update Tuesday night and it looks like we're destined for a repeat on Thursday. We'll update his status as soon as more information become available, but owners should be ready to fire up Beno Udrih and Nick Calathes if Conley unable to suit up.
Jan 29 - 1:18 PM

Tyrus Thomas played less than a minute at the end of Tuesday's game in Dallas, marking his season debut with the Grizzlies.

He didn't have any statistics to his credit and is obviously not worth owners' attention in any formats while the Grizzlies are playing at full strength.
Jan 27 - 11:15 PM

Beno Udrih started Tuesday's game in place of Mike Conley (wrist), scoring eight points on 4-of-6 shooting with two rebounds, five assists and two turnovers in 21 minutes.

Conley is day-to-day and Udrih's quiet line on Tuesday should be enough to scare away nearly all fantasy owners. He's shooting an impressive 51.0 percent this season but isn't doing enough to aid standard-league owners in 19 minutes per game.
Jan 27 - 11:12 PM

Nick Calathes thrived with an expanded role on Tuesday, coming off the bench for 13 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, two assists and two steals in Mike Conley's absence.

Beno Udrih started so Calathes had the backup job all to himself, and he reminded NBA fans why the Grizzlies inked the 25-year-old to a two-year contract in 2013. Conley's sprained wrist isn't likely to keep him out for long, so Calathes is only worth considering as a streaming play in most leagues.
Jan 27 - 11:09 PM

Jeff Green finished Tuesday's win in Dallas with eight points on 3-of-7 FGs, five rebounds, two assists and zero steals, blocks or turnovers in 31 minutes.

Green has settled into a 30-minute role, even while starting, and the best news for fantasy owners is that he's lighting it up from beyond the arc -- over the Grizzlies' past three games he's a ridiculous 6-of-7 from deep. That efficiency won't last and he'll need to start contributing elsewhere to maintain his value, but for now he's worth starting in most formats.
Jan 27 - 11:08 PM

Zach Randolph finished Tuesday's game in Dallas with 22 points on 10-of-15 shooting with 10 rebounds, marking his 16th consecutive game with double-digit boards.

Z-Bo had a quiet first half but he caught fire down the stretch, helping Memphis extend their lead in an impressive 109-90 road win vs. a division rival. His 16 games with 10+ rebounds is the longest streak in the NBA this season and he's simply on fire since returning from injury on Jan. 9.
