PG Mario Chalmers is considering a comeback into the NBA.
When asked if there was still hope to sign with an NBA team, Chalmers responded that he can "definitely" still help an NBA franchise. "I definitely do. I definitely think I can still help a team, especially with my resume," said Chalmers. I have a lot of knowledge since I’ve been to four NBA Finals and won two NBA championships and a college national championship. I just feel like I can provide a lot of knowledge to a young point guard and be a mentor. That’s the role that I’d come back to the NBA and be, so I’m open to it if it happens." The 34-year-old last played in the NBA for the Grizzlies during the 2017-18 season. Chalmers averaged 8.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.4 steals across 646 games for the Heat/Grizzlies in his career. He will look to latch onto an NBA team, but there reportedly has been no interest at the moment.
Mario Chalmers will miss at least this week and possibly more as he will be re-evaluated after the week to see how his hamstring feels. Xavier Rathan-Mayes and Kobi Simmons will fill in.
Xavier Rathan-Mayes was the better option compared to Simmons in the previous game despite Simmons getting the start. It's a risky play in DFS but his price tag is certainly low.
Mario Chalmers and Andrew Harrison will both miss Monday's game versus the Spurs. Kobi Simmons is likely to start in his place with Ben McLemore and even recently signed Xavier Rathan-Mayes could be asked to step in.
With Chalmers, Harrison, and Evans all out, McLemore is the better DFS option but Simmons could be also used as a punt play. It's even more reason to get JaMychal Green and Marc Gasol in your lineups.
Mario Chalmers was forced to leave Saturday's game early with a hamstring injury and he did not return. Chalmers got a spot start with Andrew Harrison out with an injury also. Chalmers finished with 15 points, three assists, two steals, and one board in 28 minutes.
Chalmers got a spot start with both Tyreke Evans and Andrew Harrison out of the lineup. The team has already signed a guard to a 10-day for emergency purposes. If both Chalmers and Harrison are out on Monday, Kobi Simmons is the next man up.
Mario Chalmers will remain held out with a hamstring injury in Thursday night's matchup with Detroit. This will be the second straight game he's missed for the injury.
With so many injuries in the backcourt for the Grizzlies look for Andrew Harrison and Wayne Selden to benefit the most with Chalmers and Tyreke Evans held out of the lineup.
