Mike Conley hit just 6-of-16 shots and missed all six of his 3-point attempts in Saturday's Game 1 loss to the Thunder, but finished with 16 points, five rebounds, 11 assists and three steals.

He came through for fantasy owners, but will have to play better than this if the Grizzlies are going to beat OKC. And that's a tall order.
Apr 20 - 12:37 AM

Zach Randolph had 21 points, 11 rebounds and a block in Saturday's Game 1 loss, but hit just 7-of-21 shots on the night.

Z-Bo is definitely a key to the beating the Thunder, but he'll have to play very well if the Grizzlies are going to get any wins against the Thunder. He was solid tonight, but wasn't enough.
Apr 20 - 12:34 AM

Tayshaun Prince will miss the second half of Saturday's Game 1 against the Thunder due to an illness.

He played just four minutes and failed to score in the first half, and Tony Allen started the second half in his place. This could end up being a permanent move, as Prince was highly ineffective this season. It also may not matter, as the Thunder are trouncing the Grizzlies and are playing on a different level.

Grizzlies PG Beno Udrih will take on a bigger role in the playoffs with Nick Calathes suspended 20 games for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy.

Calathes was averaging 15 minutes per game and he proved to be invaluable when Mike Conley missed games in February, but his playing time will now fall to Udrih. Although he's only played a handful of minutes with Memphis, Udrih is a career 46.1 percent shooter (35.6 percent from downtown) and he boasts a solid assist-to-turnover ratio of 2.5.

Nick Calathes will be suspended 20 games for violation of the NBA's Anti-Drug Policy.

The suspension starts now which means he won't be see postseason action. Calathes tested positive for Tamoxifen, an over-the-counter athletic supplement. He was solid this year and filled in admirably while Mike Conley was out earlier this season, averaging 14.7 points, 4.7 boards, 4.9 assists, 2.6 steals and 1.3 triples in his seven starts. Beno Udrih will back up Mike Conley, who figures to get more than 40 minutes per night vs. OKC in round one.
Apr 18 - 7:33 PM

Mike Conley played 42 minutes against the Mavericks on Wednesday during a big 106-105 win, scoring 22 points with four boards, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

He had a hamstring issue on Monday and has been able to do all of his activities leading up to tonight. Conley hit a couple big free throws down the stretch, which was reassuring after he missed some clutch ones on Monday. The Grizzlies will take on the Thunder in the first round.
Apr 16 - 11:31 PM

Mike Conley said that his right hamstring injury has improved, though his status for Wednesday's game remains uncertain.

"I'm doing a lot of stretching and keeping heat on it, so it should be loose," Conley said. Fantasy owners relying on Conley for production in the season's final game should check back closer to tip-off for the final word on his status.
Apr 16 - 12:23 PM

Mike Conley suffered a right hamstring injury in Monday night's big win over the Suns, but was able to play through it.

He was hobbling toward the end of the game, but still played effectively, finishing with 14 points and seven assists. Conley said after the game that he didn't think the injury would keep him from playing on Wednesday against Dallas, but owners will want to check back just to make sure he's good to go in the finale.
Apr 15 - 1:25 PM

Zach Randolph scored 32 points on 15-of-25 shooting with nine rebounds and one steal in Monday's playoff-clinching win over the Suns.

Randolph forced the Grizzlies into the playoffs by both gritting and grinding in a back-and-forth thriller. Marc Gasol added 18 points with eight boards and three assists, and Mike Conley hit a huge three to finish with 14 points, three rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a three in the win. The Grizzlies now face the Mavs on Wednesday to decide which team gets the No. 7 seed.
Apr 15 - 1:27 AM

Mike Miller scored 21 points on 8-of-11 shooting (including five threes) in 30 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Miller is well worth a look for his 3-point shooting as the Grizzlies and Mavs will face off on Wednesday in a meaningful game. And shockingly, after a career full of injuries, Miller has played in all 81 games for the Grizzlies this season.
Apr 15 - 1:23 AM

James Johnson played only one minute during Sunday's 102-90 road win vs. the Lakers.

Johnson had averaged 27 minutes per game over the past three games, with Tayshaun Prince (ankle) sidelined, but his role evaporated with Prince starting at SF. Johnson's contract expires this summer and it will be interesting to see how much interest he draws as a free agent, given his excellent per-minute production as a salvage project in Memphis this season.
Apr 14 - 12:52 AM

Tayshaun Prince (ankle) returned to the Grizzlies' starting lineup on Sunday, scoring nine points with one 3-pointer, five rebounds, two assists and one block in 21 minutes.

Prince missed three games with his sprained ankle, during which time James Johnson stepped into the starting SF job. Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger has been committed to Prince as a starter all season, though he's provided negligible fantasy value in 26 minutes per game.
Apr 14 - 12:43 AM

Tayshaun Prince was a participant in Sunday's shootaround, and he is officially a game-time decision vs. the Lakers.

Tayshaun is a guy who offers much more to his real life team, than to a fantasy team. If Tayshaun does suit up, he will essentially cancel out the value James Johnson. Check back closer to the tip for official confirmation on Prince's status.
Apr 13 - 2:06 PM

Marc Gasol scored 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting (including a three) with 10 rebounds and two blocks as the Grizzlies rolled over the Sixers by the score of 117-95 on Friday.

While Gasol feasted the box wasn't so kind to Mike Conley (two points, eight assists, 23 minutes), who wasn't needed in the lopsided win. Zach Randolph turned in 10 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks.
Apr 12 - 1:44 AM

James Johnson started for injured Tayshaun Prince (ankle) on Friday against the Sixers, scoring 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting with six rebounds, two assists and one block in 25 minutes.

Johnson would theoretically be a good fit for the Grizzlies over Prince, but it just hasn't worked out in his favor this season. Prince is day-to-day right now so Johnson's fantasy value will be tenuous to finish the year.
