Top Grizzlies News

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Still out Friday

    Konchar (concussion) remains out for Friday's matchup against the Timberwolves.

    Konchar will miss a second straight game. The Grizzlies could be extra thin on the wing, as Desmond Bane (knee) is questionable.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Questionable vs. Wolves

    Bane is questionable for Friday's game against the Timberwolves due to right knee soreness.

    Bane's streak of 10 straight appearances may end Friday. After initially struggling during his return from a toe injury, the guard has picked it up during a recent stretch, averaging 21.6 points on 50/51/83 shooting, 5.2 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.1 steals in 30.8 minutes. If he's out, more minutes may be in store for Dillon Brooks, Ziaire Williams and Tyus Jones.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Double-double in return to lineup

    Morant had 29 points (10-20 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 7-12 FT), four rebounds, 12 assists, one block and two steals over 35 minutes during Wednesday's 122-120 loss to the Warriors.

    Morant was off the injury report Wednesday and returned to the lineup to face Stephen Curry and the rival Golden State Warriors. He put out another solid showing, with his sixth consecutive contest with at least 20 points and seven dimes. Morant is on pace to tie or set career highs with averages of 27.4 points, 7.9 assists and 1.7 three-pointers made per game. He will have to continue to play at an All-Star level to keep the Grizzlies rolling in the absence of Steven Adams (knee) for the next 3-5 weeks.

  • Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Nears double-double in start

    Clarke contributed 19 points (8-10 FG, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 122-120 loss to the Warriors.

    Clarke got the start in the absence of Steven Adams (knee), who is now slated to miss 3-to-5 weeks. His 32 minutes played are his second-highest total of the season, and he certainly made the most of his opportunities with a well-rounded performance. It is unclear if Clarke will remain in the starting lineup as we advance or if coach Taylor Jenkins was matching up with the Warriors' small ball lineup. Whoever takes over for Adams will be on the fantasy radar in 12 and 14-team leagues and should have streaming appeal in 10-team formats.

  • Grizzlies' Xavier Tillman: Slides back to second unit

    Tillman will come off the bench in Wednesday's matchup with the Warriors, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

    Tillman saw the spot start Monday against Sacramento with Steven Adams (knee) sidelined but will return to the bench in favor of Brandon Clarke. Clarke's appearance in the first unit could be a counter to the Warriors' small ball lineup that features Draymond Green at the five considering Tillman saw the start against the much larger Domantas Sabonis. With Adams slated to miss 3-to-5 weeks, Tillman should see plenty of action moving forward.

  • Grizzlies' Brandon Clarke: Starting against Warriors

    Clarke is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Warriors, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

    Clarke will start over the injured Steven Adams (knee), and he will partner with Jaren Jackson in the frontcourt against a relatively small Warriors lineup that will feature Jonathan Kuminga and Draymond Green as frontcourt players. Clarke has averaged 11.7 points and 9.3 rebounds per game in three starts this season.

  • Grizzlies' Kenneth Lofton: Heads to G League

    The Grizzlies transferred Lofton to the G League's Memphis Hustle on Wednesday.

    Lofton is joining the Hustle for practice Wednesday and is expected to return to the Grizzlies ahead of their road game against the Warriors later in the day. However, he hasn't been a part of the NBA team's regular rotation this season, so Lofton shouldn't be expected to see any court time versus Golden State.

  • Grizzlies' Vince Williams: Sent to G League

    The Grizzlies transferred Williams to the G League's Memphis Hustle on Wednesday.

    Williams is joining the Hustle for practice Wednesday and is expected to return to the Grizzlies ahead of their road game against the Warriors later in the day. However, he hasn't been a part of the NBA team's regular rotation this season, so Lofton shouldn't be expected to see any court time versus Golden State.

  • Grizzlies' Kennedy Chandler: Heads to G League

    The Grizzlies assigned Chandler to the G League's Memphis Hustle on Wednesday.

    Chandler is joining the Hustle for practice Wednesday and is expected to return to the Grizzlies ahead of their road game against the Warriors later in the day. With Ja Morant (ankle) set to return from a one-game absence Wednesday, head coach Taylor Jenkins likely won't have room in the rotation for Chandler.

  • Grizzlies' Jake LaRavia: Joins G League affiliate

    The Grizzlies assigned LaRavia to the G League's Memphis Hustle on Wednesday.

    LaRavia is joining the Hustle for practice Wednesday and is expected to return to the Grizzlies ahead of their road game against the Warriors later in the day. However, he hasn't been a part of the NBA team's regular rotation since late November, so LaRavia shouldn't be expected to see any court time versus Golden State.

  • Grizzlies' Danny Green: Heads to G League

    The Grizzlies assigned Green (knee) to the G League's Memphis Hustle on Wednesday.

    Green announced earlier Wednesday on the latest episode of his podcast that he's eyeing the Grizzlies' Feb. 1 game against the Trail Blazers for his season debut, and his assignment to the G League supports the notion that he's closing in on a return. The 35-year-old isn't expected to play in any games for the Hustle before making his season debut, but he'll likely take part in 5-on-5 work in practice with the affiliate Wednesday while the Grizzlies are in the midst of a road trip.

  • Grizzlies' Danny Green: Eyeing Feb. 1 return

    Green (knee) said during his "Inside The Green Room" podcast released Wednesday that he plans to make his season and Grizzlies debuts Feb. 1 against the Trail Blazers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    After suffering an ACL and LCL tear of his left knee last May during the 76ers' Eastern Conference Semifinals series against the Heat, Green looked as though he might face an uphill battle just to make it back on the court before the 2022-23 regular season came to an end. However, Green has apparently made tremendous strides in his rehab program, and after he resumed taking part in 5-on-5 work two weeks ago, he looks like he'll be ready to get a handful of games under his belt before the All-Star break. The 35-year-old has long been a reliable role player thanks to his wing defense and outside shooting, and he was still able to make an impact in both areas during his final year in Philadelphia in 2021-22, when he averaged 1.0 steals and 0.6 blocks in 21.8 minutes per game while shooting 38 percent from distance. Green should be able to settle into a consistent role on the second unit behind starting wings Desmond Bane and Dillon Brooks, though the three-time NBA champion could struggle to see enough playing time to gain relevance outside of deep leagues.
