F - MEM - OUT
Memphis Grizzlies PF/C Brandon Clarke (calf) is listed as doubtful to play against the New York Knicks on Friday due to a sore left calf.
Clarke is in jeopardy of missing his third consecutive game due to a sore left calf. In his absence, fantasy managers can opt to roster Xavier Tillman who is averaging 7.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, and a block across his last four games. He isn't a thrilling option to add to your lineup but will save salary in DFS formats during Friday's slate if Clarke winds up being ruled out.
Grizzlies F/C Brandon Clarke (calf) has been ruled out Wednesday night vs. the Hawks.
Clarke missed last night’s game as well with the calf injury. Look for Xavier Tillman to see a couple extra minutes off the bench while Clarke remains sidelined.
Memphis Grizzlies PF Brandon Clarke (personal) has been ruled out Wednesday against the Jazz
Clarke was a late add to the injury report on Wednesday. Grayson Allen and Justice Winslow also join Clarke as being out for the game. Expect Kyle Anderson and De’Anthony Melton to get extended run.
Brandon Clarke scored a team-high 20 points (8-14 FG, 2-5 3PT, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three blocks, one assist, and a steal in Friday's loss to Denver.
Clarke stuffed the statsheet while tying Dillon Brooks for the team-lead in points. Clarke has shown very little consistency so far this season. The second-year forward out of Gonzaga got some opportunity to lock in a starting spot, getting 13 straight starts starting in January. Unfortunately though, he's splitting starts with Desmond Bane now and will likely be fully relegated to the bench once Jaren Jackson Jr. returns from injury. Clarke's future in fantasy could be looking bleak.
Brandon Clarke amassed six points (3-4 FG), 10 rebounds, an assist, and a block in Wednesday's win over the Wizards.
Three games into March, Clarke is averaging 29.7 minutes per game, which is a huge improvement from the 23.2 he saw in February. Unfortunately though, he's turned that extra playing time into just 8.7 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. With Jaren Jackson Jr. expected back soon, Clarke could end up being droppable in the near future.
