Zach Randolph dedicated Tuesday's 12-point, 14-board double-double to his recently deceased mother.

"My mom was great, man. My mom was all I had, all we had," said Randolph during his postgame interview on Tuesday. "This is what I did it for. She was the rock of this family. It's just tough, but I'm going to continue to go hard for her and leave it all out there and do it for her" Randolph returned from a seven-game absence on Tuesday night, and he'll likely be operating with a heavier usage rate over the coming weeks sans Mike Conley (back) and Chandler Parsons (knee). He doesn't have the highest upside, but he's worth a standard league spot due to his current situation.

Marc Gasol said during Tuesday's postgame interview that he just wants the ball in his hands.

"I just want the ball," said Gasol. "I don't care where, how, I just want it and to be able to make a decision with it." Gasol is currently operating with a career-high 26.6 usage rate to accompany his career-high 24.5 assist percentage, and those two things have culminated in him pumping out top-30 value on the year with averages of 19.2 points, 5.9 boards, 4.2 assists, 1.6 blocks, 1.5 triples and just 2.1 turnovers per game. He's going to be a beast moving forward sans Mike Conley (back).

Wade Baldwin scored a career-high 11 points on 2-of-6 shooting on Tuesday vs. the 76ers.

He also outplayed Andrew Harrison, so maybe he earned more minutes going forward. Baldwin added two assists, one rebound and three turnovers in 24 minutes, but deep-league owners can just put him on their radar until his role grows.
Dec 6 - 11:44 PM

Andrew Harrison scored two points on 1-of-9 shooting in Tuesday's win over the 76ers.

He added four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 28 minutes, but this was his third game in a row with a brutal FG percentage. He's shooting just 20.6 percent from the field in that span, and rookie Wade Baldwin made a case for more minutes with a career-high 11 points. Harrison is going to be hard to trust, but as long as he's starting he should be able to provide his owners with a trickle of assists, steals, triples and blocks.
Dec 6 - 11:41 PM

JaMychal Green double-doubled against the 76ers on Tuesday, scoring 13 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 34 minutes.

More importantly, his role wasn't impacted by the return of Zach Randolph (personal). Green only shot 2-of-7 from the field, but made up for it by hitting 9-of-10 free throws. He's been a beast over his last five games with averages of 11.6 points, 10.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.0 block and 2.0 steals in 34.6 minutes per game and shouldn't be on the waiver wire in standard leagues.
Dec 6 - 11:33 PM

Troy Daniels cooled off against the 76ers on Tuesday, scoring 10 points with one rebound, one assist and one triple in 25 minutes.

He scored a combined 60 points with 13 3-pointers in his previous two games, so he had nowhere to go but down. Daniels hit just 4-of-14 shots and 1-of-8 from deep on Tuesday and picked up five fouls, so his floor is going to be low on the nights his shot isn't falling. He doesn't have a great long-term outlook as the Grizzlies get healthier, but it makes sense to give him another shot if you picked him up.
Dec 6 - 11:28 PM

Zach Randolph returned from a seven-game absence on Tuesday vs. the 76ers, scoring 12 points with 14 rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes.

He was away from the team following the loss of his mother, so it was great to see him back out there. "It’s important to get back to working," Randolph said. "This is what my mother would want me to do. Don’t sit around and be sad. Go back to work. So I’m doing it for her. My mom was my father, too." Welcome back, Z-Bo. He's worth a look If you need points and rebounds, but his upside in standard leagues is low.
Dec 6 - 11:24 PM

Marc Gasol scored 26 points on 9-of-17 shooting with 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 34 minutes in Tuesday's 96-91 win over the 76ers.

This was the second night of a back-to-back set after Gasol triple-doubled on Monday with 28 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in a double-overtime win. He played 46 minutes in that contest, so coach David Fizdale said before Tuesday's game that he would play a "serviceable" amount of minutes vs Philly. Apparently that means 34. Gasol is rolling right now and his owners just need to hope that he stays healthy.
Dec 6 - 11:19 PM

Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale said that Marc Gasol will play a "serviceable" amount of minutes during Tuesday's matchup with the 76ers.

This could be a clue that Gasol will head to the bench early if the game turns into a blowout, thus making Gasol a slightly riskier play in daily leagues. He's obviously a must-start guy in season-long settings, though.
Dec 6 - 6:34 PM

Vince Carter (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

Tuesday will mark Carter's fifth straight game on the sidelines, which will likely result in Troy Daniels and Tony Allen getting all the minutes they can handle, and perhaps Toney Douglas can get into the game for longer than the eight minutes he played Monday night. For now, we'll be considering Carter questionable for Thursday's game against the Trail Blazers.

Zach Randolph (personal) will return to action for Tuesday's game against the 76ers, as expected.

Randolph will be returning from a seven-game absence, and the Grizzlies sure could use him with Vince Carter (hip), Chandler Parsons (knee), James Ennis (calf), Mike Conley (back) and Brandan Wright (ankle) all set to spend Tuesday night on the sidelines. Randolph should be heavily involved in Memphis' offense with all those guys out, although he could also be dealing with a minutes limit after a lengthy absence, so he's a risky DFS target. JaMychal Green could lose some minutes with Z-Bo back.
Dec 6 - 3:56 PM

Zach Randolph (personal) is expected to play on Tuesday night vs. the Sixers.

Z-Bo has missed the Grizzlies previous seven games, after the passing of his mother on Thanksgiving. JaMychal Green has been playing well recently, averaging 10.4 points and 8.3 rebounds over 33.1 minutes in the seven games Randolph missed. Z-Bo's return will likely eat into Green's playing time a bit. Green averaged 28.6 minutes over Memphis' first 15 games this season.
Dec 6 - 11:06 AM

After scoring a career-high 31 points on Saturday, Troy Daniels came off the Memphis bench on Monday to hit 10-of-20 shots, seven 3-pointers and 2-of-2 free throws for 29 points, two assists and nothing else, which would include only one turnover in 44 minutes.

Granted, this was a double-overtime affair, but this kid came out of nowhere and is killing it, scoring 29, 31, 19 and 19 points in each of his last four games, and has knocked down 20 3-pointers during that stretch, which is 5.0 per game! The Money Green light is ON and Daniels is killing it. But he could quickly fall back to earth once Chandler Parson and James Ennis are over their injuries, which may not happen anytime soon. While Daniels is likely to fade just as quickly as he appeared on the scene, he's worth grabbing right now. And if he does it again vs. the Sixers on Tuesday night, we may call him a must-own player until further notice.
Dec 6 - 12:50 AM

Tony Allen hit 9-of-14 shots for 19 points, 14 rebounds, three steals and a block in 42 minutes of Monday's intense 110-108 double-overtime win over the Pelicans.

This was easily the best game of the season for Allen and the two overtimes helped. He had a season high in points, rebounds, minutes, shots and makes, while his previous season highs were just 12 points and nine rebounds. He's averaging 11.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.2 steals over his last five, but that number is clearly inflated by tonight's game. Give him a look, but he still doesn't look close to being a must-own player in most instances.
Dec 6 - 12:43 AM

Marc Gasol's crazy season continued on Monday when he had 28 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers on 11-of-25 shooting in 46 minutes of Monday's 110-108 double-overtime win against the Pelicans.

Gasol is insane right now, knocking down threes and flirting with a Russell Westbrook-like line tonight. Gasol, never known for assists or 3-pointers, has hit a three in all but three games this season, and has racked up 19 dimes over his last two games. He's returning third-round value right now, but that arrow appears to be pointing up after this one. And over his last five games? He's averaging 21.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.6 blocks and 2.0 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting.
