Memphis Grizzlies

Western Southwest

Jonas Valanciunas recorded 16 points (6-9 FG, 4-5 FT), ten rebounds, and one assist over 23 minutes in Wednesday's 140-112 loss to the Rockets.

Fantasy Impact: With the Rockets blowing the game away in the first quarter and penchant for playing small, Valanciunas' impact was always going to be limited. He should more of a run against traditional lineups. The Grizzlies play the Kings on Friday.

Dillon Brooks recorded 22 points (9-26 FG, 4-10 3PT), one rebound, three assists, and one turnover over 30 minutes in Wednesday's 140-112 loss to the Rockets.

Fantasy Impact: Brooks took 26 attempts from the floor, a season-high. Brooks tried to will the team back into the game. With Jackson Jr. and Clarke out for the next few weeks, Brooks will have a green light as the Grizzlies try to manufacture points. The Grizzlies play the Kings on Friday.

Ja Morant produced 12 points (5-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine assists, three rebounds and a steal over 28 minutes in the Grizzlies’ 140-112 loss to the Rockets on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Morant got back on track in the assist department Wednesday, though he still came up a bit light on offense. Over his last four games, the rookie has averaged 16.0 points and 3.8 assists while going ice-cold from downtown. There's no need to panic, as the Murray State product should break out of this funk sooner than later given his stellar track record this season.

Fantasy Impact: It’s officially time to give Josh Jackson and Gorgui Dieng a long, hard look for at least the next 1-2 weeks. Jaren Jackson Jr. could potentially return before Clarke, however both will miss at least the next week.

Category: Injury Updates


Gorgui Dieng recorded 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3PT, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, one steal, four blocks, and one turnover over 28 minutes in Monday's 124-97 loss to the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact: With Clarke leaving after four minutes due to injury, the Grizzlies turned to Dieng. He feasted in his role and may be worth a dart throw in DFS leagues on Wednesday night against the Rockets.

Jaren Jackson Jr. will be reevaluated in two weeks after suffering a left knee sprain against the Lakers on Friday. (Source: Omari Sankofa on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jackson Jr. exited Friday's game with knee soreness and an MRI later revealed a sprain. This is a really tough blow for the Grizzlies as they are currently sitting three games up on Portland for the eighth-seed out West. The second-year forward is set to miss at least the next eight games before being reevaluated. The Grizzlies will likely turn to promising rookie Brandon Clarke after he started the second half on Friday and posted a double-double in 33 minutes. Clarke's value is currently trending upward and he will be a strong fantasy option as long as Jaren Jackson Jr. remains out.

Justise Winslow (back) will not play Monday's game against the Clippers. (Source: Memphis Grizzlies on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Winselow has not played since January 8th as he continues to miss time due to a back injury. There is currently no timetable for his return and he is day-to-day. His next chance to play will be Wednesday's tilt against the Rockets.

Tyus Jones recorded 16 points (6-7 FG, 2-2 3PT, 2-2 FT), six assists, and three rebounds over 18 minutes in Thursday's 129-125 loss to the Kings.

Fantasy Impact: Jones made the most of his limited opportunity, scoring a hyper-efficient 16 points and leading the team with a +27 plus/minus. Jones is quietly having a very nice start to February, scoring double digits in 83% of his games. He's averaging 13 points, 4.7 assists, and 1.7 rebounds over those six games. Ja Morant is in no danger of losing his starting duties to the fifth-year backup point guard but Jones is worth a long-shot play in DFS tournaments while he rides this mini hot streak.

De'Anthony Melton scored 24 points (5-10 FG, 4-5 3PT, 10-10 FT), grabbed six rebounds, dished three assists, blocked a shot, and stole a ball over 23 minutes off the bench in Thurday's 129-125 loss to the Kings.

Fantasy Impact: While the Grizzlies suffered a loss on Thursday, Melton helped many people win big in DFS. In a game where starting shooting guard Dillon Brooks was ice-cold, Melton came in off the bench and stuffed the statsheet while leading the team and setting a career-high in scoring. Given his season averages of 8.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 3.0 assists he probably isn't worth more than a look in any fantasy leagues.

Kyle Anderson recorded 12 points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3PT, 3-4 FG), five rebounds, two assists, and two steals over 23 minutes in Thursday's 129-125 loss to the Kings.

Fantasy Impact: Anderson posted his season-high (16 points) just two outings ago and his 12 points on Thursday mark his fifth best scoring performance of the season. Once Justice Winslow is ready to play, it's assumed that Anderson will be relegated to the bench. He's best left on your league's waiver wire.

Fantasy Impact: Allen remains out with a hip injury and will miss his 10th consecutive game as a result. His next chance to return will be Friday's tilt against the Lakers.

Solomon Hill has been traded to the Miami Heat as part of the Andre Iguodola deal. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Hill will join teammates Jae Crowder and Andre Iguodola on his way to Miami. He is averaging 5.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 48 games for the Grizzlies this season. With the move to Miami, Hill’s role and numbers should remain around the same. He is a deep-league option as best.

Jae Crowder has been traded to the Heat as part of the Andre Iguodola deal. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Crowder was traded to Miami as part of the deal that also brings in Andre Iguodola. He was averaging almost 30 minutes a game for a rebuilding Memphis team. His minutes and role will decrease as he will most likely come off the bench. Crowder is averaging 9.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.0 steals across 45 games for the Grizzlies this year. With the trade to Miami, Crowder is fringe standard league option.

Memphis has agreed to a deal to send Andre Iguodala to Miami. Iguodala agreed to trade and has agreed to a two-year, $30MM extension with Miami. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It's hard to gauge what type of impact Iguodala will have with the Heat, but his value goes from zero-to-stash. There are far worse options on the waiver wire so add Iguodala now if you have questionable depth.

Josh Jackson put up 13 points (6-14 FG, 1-5 3PT, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, one assist, and two steals across 28 minutes off the bench Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson, a lottery draft pick just two and a half years ago, played in his second game this season after being recalled from the G-League. He led all Grizzlies with 28 minutes off the bench and may have earned a role moving forward. He's worth a speculative add in deeper leagues.

Marko Guduric will be out Friday against the Pelicans due to a one-game suspension related to his role in Wednesday's altercation between the Grizzlies and Knicks. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Guduric's absence shouldn't have much of a fantasy impact, as the Serbian forward has logged just 13.4 minutes per contest across 32 appearances this season.

Category: Injury Updates


John Konchar logged one minute in the Grizzlies’ 127-106 win over the Knicks on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: The rookie from Purdue Ft Wayne took the court for just one minute in the blowout loss, though he didn't attempt a shot or make any statistical contributions. He's logged just 21 minutes across four NBA contests while spending most of his time with the Memphis Hustle of the G-League.
