Memphis Grizzlies

Western Southwest


Steven Adams has a quiet night Wednesday finishing with two points (1-3 FG), six rebounds, and two assists to go along with two turnovers in 20 minutes of action in the Grizzlies' 126-113 loss to the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact: Adams continued his disappointing fantasy year in this one as the only thing of value was his six rebounds which was not enough value to warrant starting. If this continues the conversation may come up about if he should be started anymore or if there may be better options on the waiver wire.

Jaren Jackson Jr. finished the Grizzlies game Wednesday with 16 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 3PT, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist, one steal, and two blocks in 25 minutes of action in their 126-113 loss to the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson was efficient from the field in this one shooting 75% but unfortunately besides his 16 points did not add much value in any other category.

Ja Morant totaled 23 points (8-18 FG, 0-1 3PT, 7-10 FT), six rebounds, nine assists, and three steals to go along with four turnovers in 35 minutes in the Grizzlies' 126-113 loss to the Raptors Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Morant finished one assist shy of a double-double in this one as the Grizzlies fell just short as a result of a fourth quarter rally by the Raptors.

Dillon Brooks finished Wednesday’s game with 20 points (6-16 FG, 2-9 3PT, 6-8 FT), two rebounds, three assists, and one block to go along with three turnovers in the Grizzlies' 126-113 loss to the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact: Brooks has been playing off and on as the Grizzlies' continue to ease him back from the broken hand injury he suffered to start the year. Once he resumes playing every game managers can then plug him in every night without worrying about his status, until then he should be monitored in case the Grizzlies' elect to rest him.

Brandon Clarke totaled 16 points (7-8 FG, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, and one assist in 26 minutes in the Grizzlies' 126-113 loss to the Raptors Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Clarke finished two rebounds shy of a double-double leading to his most productive game of the season so far.

Ziaire Williams finished Monday’s tilt with eight points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3PT, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, and one assist in 29 minutes off the bench in the Grizzlies' 119-118 win over the Jazz.

Fantasy Impact: Williams didn’t have the most valuable performance fantasy wise but did have some positives to come out of tonight’s game. The encouraging part of this evening was that even in a game that came down to the wire Williams played among the most minutes on the team. He should be monitored as a late season flier at best but isn’t currently worth too much of a roster spot.

Kyle Anderson finished Monday’s game with nine points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3PT), eight rebounds, four assists, and one steal to go along with two turnovers in 23 minutes of action in the Grizzlies' 119-118 win over the Jazz.

Fantasy Impact: Anderson filled into the starting lineup again as Dillon Brooks has been out and performed admirably nearing a double-double. He should only be considered as a deep bench prospect due to the Grizzlies use of him even with Brooks out.

Desmond Bane totaled 28 points (12-20 FG, 4-8 3PT), four rebounds, four assists, and two steals to go along with two turnovers in 34 minutes of action in the Grizzlies' 119-118 victory over the Jazz Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Bane had yet another fantastic performance Monday as he finished the night shooting 50% from deep. Bane is a fantastic value and if he is still somehow available in any league he should be rostered.

John Konchar saw 24 minutes on Friday and finished with four points (1-4 FG, 1-3 3PT, 1-4 FT), six rebounds, one assist, and one steal in the Grizzlies' 119-94 loss to the Suns.

Fantasy Impact: Konchar produced an alright line on Friday but is not worth much consideration for fantasy as he doesn’t often see more than 13 minutes per game. Consider this a outlier and a result of the Grizzlies' being down late.

Santi Aldama came off the bench for 10 minutes in the Grizzlies' 115-87 loss to the Wizards and finished with two points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3PT), and two rebounds.

Fantasy Impact: Aldama is worth no consideration in any league. This was nothing more than garbage time minutes for a deep rotation player that won’t see much of the floor besides in blowouts such as tonight’s.

De'Anthony Melton finished Friday’s tilt with four points (2-9 FG, 0-4 3PT), two rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 20 minutes of action in the Grizzlies' 115-87 blowout loss to the Wizards Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: Melton had a very quiet night along with the rest of the Grizzlies' starters. Expect this to be an outlier for the whole Grizzlies lineup. Stream Melton with confidence until Brooks returns to the lineup and things potentially get shaken up.

Tyus Jones came off the bench for 27 minutes in Monday's 106-97 win over the Nuggets and finished with 17 points (6-9 FG, 5-7 3PT), eight rebounds, four assists, and two steals to go along with one turnover.

Fantasy Impact: Jones came off the bench and played the highest minutes of any member of the Grizzlies bench. To add to that Jones also had a extremely efficient night as he shot 71% from deep. This is likely a outlier as Jones has not performed like this before this game this season and with Dillon Brooks return to come Jones can be considered a streaming option for now.

Xavier Tillman saw 16 minutes of action in the Grizzlies' Saturday night 129-103 loss to the Heat and finished with zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3PT), five rebounds, one assist, and three steals.

Fantasy Impact: Tillman is averaging 17 minutes per game this season and is the center behind Steven Adams. Tillman is a intriguing stash as he has been slowly eating into Adams playing time lately. Unfortunately unless Tillman can produce in the small portion given to him right now he is not much more than a stash.

Sam Merrill saw his first minutes (12) this year for Memphis and finished with six points (2-6 FG, 2-6 3PT), and two assists in the Grizzlies' 116-96 loss Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Merrill is not worth a roster spot. Merrill got the majority of his minutes in garbage time as Memphis lost by 20 and every single member of the Grizzlies' saw some action.

The Milwaukee Bucks and Memphis Grizzlies have agreed to terms on a deal that will send Grayson Allen to the Bucks in exchange for Sam Merill and two second round picks per, Adrian Wojnarowski. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski)

Fantasy Impact: With Grayson Allen likely to lose minutes in the rotation due to the acquisitions of both Steven Adams and Eric Bledsoe, the third year guard will get another chance to play with the world champion Bucks. Allen will likely come off the bench this season playing along side Pat Connaughton.

C Jonas Valanciunas and two draft picks have been traded to the New Orleans Pelicans for C Steven Adams, G Eric Bledsoe and three draft picks. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Valanciunas had a breakout campaign in 2021, averaging 17.1 points and 12.5 rebounds per game. Valanciunas will now be sharing the paint with F Zion Williamson in New Orleans so it'll be interesting to see how those two fit alongside each other.

Justice Winslow finished the game with 25 points (9-19 FG, 4-6 3PT, 3-6 FT), 13 rebounds, and four assists.

Fantasy Impact: Winslow finally got some opportunities and well he definitely delivered. With their play in seed on the line, I'd be shocked if Memphis doesn't start their guys Sunday against Golden State, meaning Winslow shouldn't be looked at in fantasy.
