According to Ohm Youngmisuk, Steven Adams (ankle) is headed to the locker room in Game 6 against the Warriors.
After going up for a rebound in the second quarter of Friday's Game 6, Memphis center Steven Adams landed awkwardly on his ankle and was helped off the floor and into the locker room. It's unclear the severity at this time and if the veteran will return, he is replaced by Brandon Clarke who has logged nine minutes through two quarters.
Grizzlies C Steven Adams has cleared COVID-19 health and safety protocols as reported by Sports Illustrated's Brett Siegel.
Steven Adams has been in COVID-19 health and safety protocols since late in the Memphis' previous series against Minnesota. Adams returned to practice on Thursday and will likely be available for Game 3 on Saturday. Prior to entering protocols, Adams had fallen out of the rotation so his role against the Warriors remains to be seen. He could be cheap flyer at center but probably best to let him get a game under his belt before plugging him into any lineups.
Steven Adams is listed as out for Tuesday's Game 2 due to health and safety protocols, according to the Grizzlies PR on Twitter.
Adams has missed the Grizzlies' last three games and will miss a fourth consecutive contest Tuesday. The veteran center started 75 games this year for Memphis, but in the playoffs, Brandon Clarke has played big minutes in place of Adams. Look for Clarke to again play a significant role Tuesday.
According to the NBA Injury Report, Steven Adams (calf) is out Sunday vs. the Celtics
The Memphis Grizzlies will sit a rash of veterans including Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson, Steven Adams, Dillon Brooks, Tyus Jones, and Killian Tille for their final matchup with the Celtics. The team will likely trot out a short-eight-man rotation with Jarrett Culver and Xavier Tillman seeing their minutes increased to 30+ minutes.
Steven Adams (calf) is off the injury report and will presumably play in Tuesday's game against the Utah Jazz.
Adams is dealing with a calf injury that forced him to miss Friday's game, but it seems like he will be back for Tuesday. It's unclear if this will be a lingering issue for him, but fantasy managers can look for Xavier Tillman to see less minutes with the veteran presumably being back in the lineup.
