Marc Gasol finished Sunday's 105-98 win against the Nuggets with 23 points, six assists, five rebounds and a blocked shot.

Gasol dropped in a trio of 3-pointers in the road win, becoming just the fourth center to post 80 or more successful 3-pointers made this season. He is such a valuable contributor for fantasy owners in most leagues, but especially so in rotisserie formats for his work from behind the arc.
Feb 26 - 7:51 PM

Zach Randolph picked up 30 points, 11 rebounds and two assists across 26 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 105-98 win against the Nuggets.

It was Randolph's 15th double-double, all coming as a reserve. He leads the NBA in double-doubles off the bench this season. Despite a reserve role, Randolph has flourished. He is averaging 15.7 points and 9.3 rebounds per game over his past three outings. While he is no longer a 20-point, 10-rebound guy every night, he is still very productive in a majority of fantasy formats.
Feb 26 - 7:48 PM

Mike Conley posted 31 points, five assists, four rebounds and two steals with just one turnover over 35 minutes in Sunday's 105-98 road victory against the Nuggets.

Conley has 30 or more points in six outings this season after posting just five 30-plus performances over his first nine NBA seasons combined. He has three of those performances over his past 11 games, too. The Ohio State product is on pace for career highs in points per game and rebounds this season. He is also well ahead of his career average of 1.2 triples per contest, hitting 2.3 per from behind the perimeter through 48 games.
Feb 26 - 7:39 PM

Wade Baldwin has been sent down for a D-League stint.

As long as Mike Conley is healthy, Baldwin will remain irrelevant in all leagues.
Feb 26 - 3:36 PM

Jarell Martin has been sent down for a D-League stint.

He hasn't played in an NBA game since January 21.
Feb 26 - 3:35 PM

Brandan Wright (personal) will not play Sunday vs. the Nuggets.

This will be Wright's second straight game on the sidelines, and it's currently unclear if he'll be able to play in Tuesday's home game against the Suns. With Wright on the sidelines, Zach Randolph will pick up most of his minutes.
Feb 26 - 2:24 PM

Mike Conley scored 10 points during 102-92 loss in Indiana on Friday, adding five rebounds, seven assists and one turnover in 32 minutes.

Coach David Fizdale wasn't happy with his team after this dud and called it "unacceptable." Conley went 0-of-4 from the line today for the most attempts in a game without a make in his career -- he's actually only gone 0-of-2 just four times in his career. Marc Gasol also came out flat with 12 points, four rebounds, four assists and one block in 32 minutes. The Grizzlies get a great matchup against the Nuggets on Sunday, so expect a bounce back for both aforementioned studs.
Feb 24 - 9:37 PM

Chandler Parsons played 19 minutes with four points, one rebound, one assist and one turnover against the Pacers on Friday.

Coach David Fizdale said the Grizzlies will take baby steps with Chandler Parsons, but his increase in playing time looks like it may be more of a crawl. We're assuming he's going to have a restriction until the postseason.
Feb 24 - 9:30 PM

Troy Daniels played 15 minutes with 13 points, two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers against the Pacers on Friday.

The Grizzlies needed some late scoring, so they turned to their Money Green guy to try and close the gap with triples. It didn't work with the Grizzlies losing by 10 points. Daniels is not a lock to play against the Nuggets on Sunday, but he should see double-digit minutes.
Feb 24 - 9:28 PM

Brandan Wright (personal) will not play vs. the Pacers on Friday.

Zach Randolph should pick up a few more minutes with Wright out of commission, but there aren't any big repercussions here since Wright is averaging 13.9 minutes this season. He's day-to-day and could return as soon as Sunday's game vs. Denver.
Feb 23 - 4:11 PM

The Grizzlies have signed Toney Douglas for the rest of the 2016-17 season.

Douglas' second 10-day deal expired recently and they opted to keep him on as a backup for Mike Conley. The deal has a team option for 2017-18, but Douglas' whereabouts don't have an impact outside of the deepest fantasy leagues.
Feb 23 - 3:45 PM

Coach David Fizdale said the team will take "baby steps" with Chandler Parsons going forward.

While he did sit in a non-back-to-back game on Feb. 10, Parsons' minutes have been trending up with 23.0 minutes per game in February. Fizdale said he's seen Parsons get stronger, have more confidence, and could see him playing consistent minutes. The coach said the goal is to get him ready to roll for the playoffs and he will still have a minutes restriction. Parsons is just not worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 22 - 3:16 PM

The Pelicans are looking to add a guard and will host Mario Chalmers, Quinn Cook, Reggie Williams and Hollis Thompson for a tryout this week.

After trading away Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, and Langston Galloway in the DeMarcus Cousins deal, the Pelicans roster is a bit unbalanced. Thus, they are looking to add depth to their backcourt. Chalmers recently auditioned for the Cavs but did not sign with Cleveland. He has plenty of NBA experience but is still working his way back from a torn Achilles injury that he suffered last March.
Feb 21 - 9:51 AM

Marc Gasol scored 15 points with 12 rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block and three turnovers in 36 minutes during a 95-91 loss to the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He flirted with a triple-double on Monday and was even closer during this loss. Gasol caps his All-Star worthy first half with a career-highs 20.6 points and 4.3 assists. The new David Fizdale system has really opened up his game as a complete big, especially with his 1.4 treys per game.
Feb 15 - 11:28 PM

Chandler Parsons scored nine points with one rebound, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He may have looked his best all season and had a pretty layup in this game (video in link below). Even with a week off, Parsons is still likely to see some days off for rest after the break. He is just not worth the trouble in most fantasy leagues.
