Fantasy Impact: Anderson will be pushed into DFS consideration with Crowder out of the lineup on Saturday in a plus matchup against the Wizards.

Tyus Jones got the start with Ja Morant resting on Friday against the Bucks finishing with 10 points, seven assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 25 minutes of action but in a losing effort.

Fantasy Impact: Jones will be worth a look in all leagues whenever Ja Morant sits out for rest or injury. Expect Morant back for the next game Jones should be left off DFS lineups.

Jaren Jackson Jr. finished with a career-high 43 points (14-for-21 FG, 9-for-15 3Pt, 6-for-9 FT), five rebounds, one block, and one assist in just 29 minutes of action in a loss to the Bucks on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson set records of his own in the third quarter with a franchise-record 26 points with seven triples plus a career-high 43 points in this game. Jackson will be the lead man while Ja Morant continues to sit out back-to-back sets.

Brandon Clarke will sit Friday against Milwaukee while getting a maintenance day for an injured oblique. (Source: Grizzlies PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: He's missed time this season due to the injury and just recently returned, so this should be considered precautionary. He's expected to play Saturday in the second of a back-to-back against Washington.

Ja Morant will miss Friday's matchup with Milwaukee for maintenance due to a back injury. (Source: Grizzlies PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: He'll sit Friday but be available Saturday against Washington in the second of a back-to-back. Morant has already missed time due to a back issue, so holding him out of the back-to-back is a precautionary move. Tyus Jones will start Friday.

Dillon Brooks provided 27 points (10-18 FG, 1-5 3PT, 6-6 FT), three rebounds, one assist, two steals, and three turnovers over 27 minutes in the Grizzlies’ 115-108 win over the Suns on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Brooks has averaged 17.3 points per game in the month of December. That number is slightly inflated as Morant was absent for a few games. However, Morant has played the last two games and Brooks has continued to get his shot off. Brooks and the Grizzlies host the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.

Grayson Allen scored 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-4-9 3PT), two rebounds, one block, and two turnovers over 12 minutes in the Grizzlies’ 110-102 win over the Warriors on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Allen has scored in double figures in four of the past five games in December. In those five games this month, he has averaged 11.8 points per game. Compare that number to his season average of 8.2 per game. Allen seems to be finding his groove. The Grizzlies play again on Wednesday's game against the Phoenix Suns.

Jonas Valanciunas provided 10 points (5-7 FG, 2-2 3PT, 1-3 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists, and three turnovers over 27 minutes in the Grizzlies’ 110-102 win over the Warriors on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Valanciunas recorded his fifth double-double in his past six games. Any fears that he would not be a force for the Grizzlies have been squelched. His impact was limited by his six fouls in the game. He continues to feast on lesser opponents. He should do well in Wednesday's game against the Phoenix Suns.

De'Anthony Melton contributed six points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3PT, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two steals across 20 minutes in Saturday's 126-112 loss to Utah.

Fantasy Impact: Melton picked up two quick fouls and gave way to Tyus Jones the rest of the game. Melton is averaging 5.5 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.2 steals across 11 games this year. Melton's playing time depends on how Tyus Jones is performing and is a deep league option only. The Grizzlies next scheduled game is Monday, away against the Warriors.

Kyle Anderson has been ruled out for Saturday's game versus the Utah Jazz due to a sore right heel. (Source: Grizzlies PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Anderson out, Solomon Hill will be picking up plenty of minutes off the bench while Grayson Allen will also pick up minutes. Hill is not much more than punt play in DFS.

Category: Injury Updates


Solomon Hill finished with a season-high 22 points (9-for-14 FG, 4-for-6 3Pt, 0-for-0 FT), six rebounds, three steals, and two assists in a spot start for Brandon Clarke on Monday against his one of his former teams, the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact: Hill was able to capitalize in a spot start on Monday against the Pacers so kudos to you if you took a hail mary in daily on him. If Clarke misses another game, he's worth a look in daily but that's all.

Bruno Caboclo went for 0 points and two personal fouls in just one minute of play in the Grizzlies’ 114-95 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Caboclo was on the court just long enough to commit two personal fouls before heading back to the bench. After seeing 23.5 minutes per night for a depleted Memphis squad last season, the sixth-year forward has averaged just 9.4 minutes per contest this season, while averaging 3.4 points and 2.0 rebounds. He's spent a little time in the G League as well and isn't on the fantasy map, barring injuries.

Marko Guduric totaled 17 points (6-9 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, a steal and a block across 20 minutes in the Grizzlies’ 119-117 win over the Hornets on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Guduric put together the finest scoring night of his brief career, draining four triples and finishing with a healthy 17 points. The Turkish guard is enjoying a regular rotational role in his first NBA season, averaging 6.6 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists across 18.2 minutes per contest. He's a skilled three-point shooter and should provide the occasional big scoring night as he did Wednesday. He's hard to trust outside of very deep leagues, though.

Josh Jackson has been sent to the G League Memphis Hustle. (Source: Grizzlies PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jackson was picked up by the Grizzlies as a developmental project after the 2017 No. 4 pick was a sound bust in two seasons with Phoenix. He’ll get a chance to show off in the minors and try to earn an NBA roster spot in the future. He’s a low-end dynasty stash with no redraft value.

Andre Iguodala and the Grizzlies have agreed that Iguodala will stay away from the team while Memphis looks for a trade partner. (Source: ESPN.com)

Fantasy Impact: Originally a buyout candidate, the Grizzlies have decided to instead seek a trade for the 35-year-old veteran wing. In the interim, Iguodala will stay away from Memphis, which opens training camp next week.

Tyler Zeller to join Nuggets

Center Tyler Zeller has signed with Denver on a non-guaranteed training camp deal after playing for the Hawks and Grizzlies last season. (Source: The Denver Post)

Fantasy Impact: The veteran player has been moving around teams his entire career. This is a wait and see approach, but he's likely not worth any fantasy value.

Dwight Howard has been bought out by the Memphis Grizzlies and is reportedly signing a non-guaranteed contract with the Los Angeles Lakers after performing well enough in small workouts. He is expected to provide depth on a shallow center rotation with DeMarcus Cousins out for the foreseeable future. All that is left is for Howard to clear waivers. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: While Howard no longer operates at the level of a DPOY and All-Defensive center, he can still be a productive player in a limited capacity. In fact, it was only two years ago in which he played in 81 games and posted 16.6 PPG and 12.5 RPG for the Charlotte Hornets. For him to reach his full potential with the Lakers though, he must show that he can leave his character issues and health concerns in the past. Perhaps a second stint with the Lakers will prove to be a redemption story after a failed first attempt.

In addition to interest in Joakim Noah the Lakers are also being linked to Dwight Howard as they look to fill the void left behind by Demarcus Cousins' ACL injury. Negotiations could progress sooner with Noah as he is currently a free agent and Howard is still technically on the Memphis roster. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: While Noah wouldn't provide much fantasy value were he to sign with Los Angeles, he would boost their front court depth and provide his patented high energy off the bench. He's one of the more accomplished big men currently available.

Avery Bradley intends to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers on a two-year, $9.7M contract, with a player option for the second year. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bradley has been a bit of a journeyman, bouncing between the Pistons, Clippers, and Grizzlies the last two season after spending his first seven years in Boston. While he may not be able to put up double-digit scoring that he used to on this suddenly deep Lakers team, Bradley did average 16.1 points in 14 games with the Pistons last season. A starter essentially his whole career, the two-time All-Defensive team guard will now have to fight for playing time against the likes of Alex Caruso, Quinn Cook, and Kentavius Caldwell-Pope.

Delon Wright was traded to the Mavericks in a sign-and-trade deal with the Grizzlies in exchange for two second-round picks. Wright will sign a three-year, $29 million contract. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wright could challenge for the starting role at either back-court spot in 2019-2020, pending on how Dallas uses star Luka Doncic. He could have a safe path to minutes, and will compete with Tim Hardaway and Seth Curry for a back-court spot. Wright averaged 8.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.2 steals in 75 games for the Grizzlies/Raptors last season.
