Memphis Grizzlies

Western Southwest

Justise Winslow said that he is "pain-free and symptom-free" and plans to "get right back into the swing of things" when (or if) the NBA season resumes. (Source: Michael Wallace of Grind City Media)

Fantasy Impact: Before the NBA season was suspended in March, Winslow hasn't played a regular season game since January 8th. He was traded from the Heat to Grizzlies on February 5th, but was unable to suit up for his new team. Winslow is averaging 11.3 points, 6.6 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 0.6 steals across 11 games this season. He is deemed fully healthy and should be all systems go once or if the 2019-2020 NBA season resumes.

Gorgui Dieng logged five points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3PT), six rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and a steal over 15 minutes in Tuesday's 120-115 loss to the Magic.

Fantasy Impact: Dieng continues totake advantage of his limited opportunity. While his scoring (7.0 points per game) leaves a lot to be desired he is averaging 8.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.0 blocks, and 0.4 steals over just 19.2 minutes in five outings this month. He is firmly behind Jonas Valanciunas on the depth chart which limits his upside, but his production per minutes proves that if Valanciunas is to miss any time, Dieng would become an instant fantasy asset.

De'Anthony Melton scored seven points (3-10 FG, 1-6 3PT), seven rebounds, six assists, one steal, and one block in Tuesday's 120-115 loss to the Orlando Magic.

Fantasy Impact: Drawing the start again, Melton continues to find ways to contribute. Melton's opportunities may diminish when Winslow returns from injury. The Grizzlies play the Trailblazers on Thursday.

Kyle Anderson logged three points (0-1 FG, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one block across 26 minutes of play Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Anderson has only averaged 6.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 2.7 assists over his last ten games. He does not offer enough fantasy value to consider rostering at this point.

Category: Game Recaps

Josh Jackson compiled 15 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 3PT, 1-3 FT), one rebound, four assists, and one steal in 19 minutes of play off the bench Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: After not even being active for the first 47 games of the season, Jackson has now scored in the teens in five consecutive games. He's seemingly resurrecting his once-bright career and is worth fantasy consideration in deeper leagues.

Category: Game Recaps

Dillon Brooks supplied 21 points (7-16 FG, 4-7 3PT, 4-7 FT), one assist, and one steal over 33 minutes of play Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Brooks can light up a scoreboard when he gets hot from the field but offers very few peripheral stats, giving him a low fantasy floor that's tough to trust on a consistent basis.

Category: Game Recaps

Ja Morant totaled 21 points (7-16 FG, 1-5 3PT, 6-8 FT), four rebounds, five assists, and one steal across 35 minutes of play Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Morant has put up back-to-back strong fantasy performances and has now seen at least 31 minutes on the court in three straight games. He should remain a strong fantasy asset as he makes a push for Rookie of the Year and tries to help Memphis hang on to a playoff spot down the home stretch of the season.

Category: Game Recaps

Jonas Valanciunas racked up 27 points (9-10 FG, 9-13 FT), 16 rebounds, one steal, and one block over 35 minutes of play against the Magic Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Despite losing the game, Valanciunas got the best of Nikola Vucevic on the stat sheet down low Tuesday. He's put up 27 puts and 16+ rebounds in consecutive games and is a must-start fantasy asset in another good matchup against the Trail Blazers on Thursday.

Shams Charania on Twitter is reporting that Dion Waiters has signed with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Fantasy Impact: Waiters worked out for the Lakers on March 2nd and it appears that he made a great impression on them. He will be a nice addition for the Lakers as he will provide them with some scoring punch off the bench. Fantasy owners can place him on the watch list to see how he is meshed into the rotation.

Memphis Head Coach Taylor Jenkins told reporters on Wednesday that Jaren Jackson Jr. (knee) is “progressing in a positive direction” and could return to the court sometime next week. (Source: Michael Wallace on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: JJJ’s original two-week timeframe on the sidelines comes up this weekend, so Jenkins’ words that he could be back next week seem to go right along with that. It’s been a team effort filling in for Jackson Jr., but it’s been Josh Jackson and Gorgui Dieng off the bench that have provided Memphis with some front court depth while both JJJ and Brandon Clarke (quad) have been out. Fantasy owners will want to deploy Jackson Jr. as usual when he returns from the injury.

Tyus Jones posted 18 points (6-13 FG, 5-6 3PT, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, and six assists over 21 minutes of action in Wednesday's big 118-79 win over the Nets.

Fantasy Impact: Jones shot an impressive 5-of-6 from beyond the arc. His five three-pointers in the game was a season-high. Some of the production was due to the game being a blow out. His production should regress to the mean on Friday against the Mavericks in a pivotal matchup for playoff seeding.

Updating a previous report that Brandon Clarke would be out for tomorrow night’s game, the Memphis Grizzlies provided a medical update that states Clarke (quad) will be re-evaluated in two weeks. (Source: Chris Herrington on Twitter )

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.

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.

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.
