Jonas Valanciunas leads Grizzlies with 16 points but lose big to Celtics

Jonas Valanciunas posted a team-high in points and rebounds on Wednesday night, putting up 16 and 13, respectively. He also had an assist, two steals, and two blocks over 26 minutes.

Fantasy Impact

Valanciunas, like the rest of the starters, got some bench time in the fourth quarter of a blowout loss tonight. Valanciunas was the lone bright spot for the Grizzlies as he posted his third double-double in his last five games. His 17.1 points and 11.2 rebounds for the month of January are both his best of the season. He's ninth in scoring for centers this season and seems to be trending up on a team of budding stars.

Jonas Valanciunas post double-double Monday in loss to Pelicans

Jonas Valanciunas scored 14 points on an efficient 6-of-8. He pulled 11 rebounds, dished a single assist, and swiped two balls over 21 limited minutes.

Fantasy Impact

Valanciunas played well but his 21 minutes were the lowest the big man has put up since December 13th. The Pelicans run a small and fast lineup so you can chalk that up as a gameplan move rather than him being phased out. Pelicans' center Jaxson Hayes only played 19 minutes in the high-scoring matchup. Valanciunas is averaging 17.5 points and 11.3 rebounds in January and is a huge reason the Grizzlies have won eight of their last 10. He's putting up top-10 value at the center position this year and deserves to be in your lineup whenever he's suiting up. The Grizzlies will travel to Boston to face the Celtics on Wednesday.

Jonas Valanciunas grabs 18 boards in win Friday night

Jonas Valanciunas put up eight points (4-11 FG, 0-2 3PT, 0-2 FT), 18 rebounds, four assists, and four blocks across 32 minutes of play Friday night.

Fantasy Impact

Valanciunas put up a season-high in blocks and fell just one short of his season-high in rebounds Friday. He can put up solid numbers without scoring and when he does score becomes one of the most efficient centers in all of basketball.

Jonas Valanciunas has solid outing against the Rockets

Jonas Valanciunas went for 19 points (8-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one block and one turnover across 28 minutes in the Grizzlies’ 121-110 win over the Rockets on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Valanciunas has had some of his best games in January this season. His points and rebounds for the month are the highest of any month this season. He appears to be more comfortable playing with and off Jaren Jackson Jr. He should have a big game on Friday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Jonas Valanciunas gouges Golden State with 31 & 19

Jonas Valanciunas went for 31 points (13-17 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 19 rebounds, two blocks, one steal and an assist across 29 minutes in the Grizzlies’ 122-102 win over the Warriors on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Valanciunas hauled in a season-high rebounding total while accounting for his second-highest scoring output on the year. It was arguably Valanciunas' best game of 2019-20, and it came at the expense of the hapless Warriors. Despite the vulnerability of the opposing team, JV has been a huge force for Memphis this season, averaging 14.7 points, 9.7 boards and 2.0 assists per contest.
