News: Conley has won the Joe Dumars Trophy for sportsmanship, ESPN reports.
Impact: The award is voted on by the NBA players, and Conley recieved 77 first-place votes of a possible 334, finishing just ahead of Jeff Green and Channing Frye. The NBA will donate $10,000 to a charity of Conley's choice.
Tue. Apr 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gasol scored 16 points (6-15 FG, 4-4 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, seven assists, one block and a steal in 46 minutes Monday against the Thunder.
Impact: Gasol once again played big minutes Monday, having recorded 45 and 46 minutes respectively in the first two games of the playoffs. If he continues to get such a heavy work load, bigger numbers should come with it. He has shot below 40 percent in the two playoff games, but averaged 47.3 percent during the regular season, so his shots should start to fall eventually.
Mon. Apr 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Conley scored 19 points (7-16 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-7 FT) to go along with 12 assists and seven rebounds in 39 minutes in Game 2 Monday against the Thunder.
Impact: Conley provided a big double-double in a win Monday and should continue to log heavy minutes as the Grizzlies try to upset the Thunder in the first round.
Mon. Apr 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Prince (illness) played only 14 minutes in Game 2 Monday against the Thunder and scored two points (1-4 FG) to go along with one rebound and one assist.
Impact: Prince was supposedly feeling better heading into this game, but he still only managed to play limited minutes. With both Tony Allen and Courtney Lee playing well, Prince may not see heavy minutes in Game 3 either.
Mon. Apr 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lee (lower body) returned in Game 2 Monday against the Thunder and finished with 16 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go along with three rebounds and one assist in 42 minutes.
Impact: Lee looked fine after returning to the game Monday and logged heavy minutes in a big victory for Memphis. He should be safe for fantasy owners to deploy in Game 3.
Mon. Apr 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lee (lower body) is back on the bench after limping to the locker room and is available to return to Monday's game in Oklahoma City, the Grizzlies' official site reports.
Impact: After playing 25 minutes and compiling nine points, two rebounds and one assist prior to the injury, Lee is available to return, if necessary, in the final 15 or so minutes of regulation. Consider him day-to-day going forward, but the fact that he could return to Monday's game bodes well for his status for Game 3 and beyond.
Mon. Apr 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lee left Monday's game midway through the third quarter, limping to the locker room, The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: It's unclear how serious the injury is, or whether Lee will be able to return. Owners should continue to monitor his status, and it seems like Tony Allen could play for the majority of the remainder of Monday's game.
Mon. Apr 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Allen will continue to come off the bench for the Grizzlies in Game 2 against the Thunder, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Impact: There was some speculation after Allen saw 33 minutes off the bench in the Game 1 loss that he might supplant Tayshaun Prince in the starting lineup, but coach Dave Joerger emphatically shot that idea down. Prince was under the weather for the first game of the series but says he's feeling better, so Allen may not quite reach the extensive run he saw Saturday.
Mon. Apr 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Prince (illness) is feeling much better Monday and will take the court against the Thunder for Game 2, after seeing just four minutes in a Game 1 loss, the Grizzlies' official site reports.
Impact: Prince said he rarely gets ill to the extent that he did before Game 1, but even when healthy, he's a dicey option in most playoff formats. Still, we would expect him to see plenty of run in Game 2.
Apr 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Prince (illness) practiced Sunday and is expected to start Monday's Game 2 against the Thunder, FOX Sports Memphis reports.
Impact: Prince's stomach illness limited him to just four minutes in Game 1, which allowed Tony Allen to play more extensively. While Allen should continue to receive significant minutes, Prince is expected to start Monday night now that he's feeling better.
Sat. Apr 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Allen scored 13 points (6-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 33 minutes in Saturday's Game 1 loss.
Impact: Allen played 33 minutes because Tayshaun Prince could only manage four minutes due to a stomach illness. It's the most minutes he has played since Courtney Lee has arrived in Memphis and he looked to be a constant thorn in the Thunder's side with his relentless defense. If Prince can't go on Monday, Allen could easily top 30 minutes again.
Sat. Apr 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Conley finished Saturday's game with 16 points (6-16, 0-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, 11 assists and three steals in 39 minutes.
Impact: Conley did all he could to get the Grizzlies back into this game, but ultimately couldn't get them over the line. This game marked the first time since late January that Conley has registered double-digit assists.
Sat. Apr 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gasol scored 16 points (7-19 FG, 2-5 FT) while grabbing six rebounds, four assists and three steals in Saturday's Game 1 defeat.
Impact: Gasol couldn't crank his production up as much as he would've liked and shot poorly considering he knocked down 55 percent over his past seven games. He'll be looking to take advantage of the Thunder's interior defense in their next matchup Monday.
Sat. Apr 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lee tallied only eight points (4-6 FG) with one rebound and one block in 29 minutes in Saturday's Game 1 loss.
Impact: Lee couldn't get involved in the offense and has struggled since March after his impressive start in Memphis.He didn't attempt a three-pointer for the first time in six games.
Sat. Apr 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Randolph top-scored for the Grizzlies with 21 points (7-21 FG, 7-12 FT) and ended with 11 rebounds, three assists and one block in 39 minutes.
Impact: Randolph picked up his fifth foul with nine minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, so he was playing with a little trepidation for the remainder of the game. This was his fourth double-double in five games against the Thunder this season and should be a focal point of the Grizzlies' offense moving forward.
Sat. Apr 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Udrih returned to the Grizzlies' rotation Saturday and scored three points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-4 FT) with four rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes.
Impact: With Nick Calathes suspended for 20 games, Udrih is the primary backup and played the most minutes in a Grizzlies uniform Saturday. He had been a DNP-CD for the last two games of the regular season, but will now be a key piece if the Grizzlies are to advance.
Sat. Apr 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Prince was battling a stomach illness pregame and only played four minutes in Saturday's Game 1 defeat. He failed to record a stat.
Impact: The Grizzlies play next on Monday, so Prince is considered a game-time decision. Tony Allen played 33 minutes in his stead and was a constant defensive pest when he was on the court.
Fri. Apr 18, 2014 | STATS
News: Calathes has been suspended for 20 games for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy.
Impact: The league said Friday night in a release that Calathes tested positive for tamoxifen. The suspension begins Saturday night when the Grizzlies take on Oklahoma City in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series. Calathes, a 25-year-old rookie reserve, averaged 4.9 points and 2.9 assists in 71 games this season.
Fri. Apr 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Udrih could see his minutes increase a bit in light of Nick Calathes' 20-game suspension, which should keep him out for the duration of the playoffs.
Impact: Calathes was suspended 20 games Friday for violating the league's drug policy. He was averaging 15 minutes in the two weeks before being suspended, and while Mike Conley could play heavier minutes as a result, Udrih will likely see some extra run as well and be moved up to the primary backup point guard spot. Udrih still won't be very productive and might not see much more than 10 minutes per night, but he should take on a more consistent role in the playoffs with Calathes not returning unless the Grizzlies make a deep playoff run.
Fri. Apr 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Calathes will be suspended 20 games for violating the league's drug policy, Yahoo Sports reports.
Impact: Calathes tested positive for Tamoxifen, a part of an over-the counter athletic supplement, and will serve a 20-game suspension effective immediately. Unless the Grizzlies' make the Western Conference Finals, his suspension should keep him out for the duration of the playoffs. He averaged 15 minutes for the past two weeks, and Mike Conley, Memphis' starting point guard, could play a bit more to make up for the rotation hole. The majority of Calathes' minutes should go to the little-used Beno Udrih.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | STATS
News: Zach Randolph led Memphis with 27 points and 14 rebounds, helping the Grizzlies defeat Dallas 106-105 in overtime.
Impact: Randolph finished the regular season with 46 double-doubles in 78 games played.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Randolph went for 27 points (11-22 FG, 5-6 FT) and 14 rebounds in 46 minutes against Dallas on Wednesday.
Impact: Randolph dominated the paint Wednesday, grabbing a game-high 14 rebounds, including a remarkable nine offensive boards. The lefty power forward also led all scorers while converting half of his field goal attempts. As in recent seasons, Randolph is rounding into top form just in time for the playoffs.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gasol tallied 19 points (9-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-4 FT), nine rebounds, and nine assists in 46 minutes Wednesday versus Dallas.
Impact: Gasol was wonderful Wednesday, coming dangerously close to a triple-double in Memphis' regular season finale. Unlike most centers, Gasol offers production outside of the usual points and rebounds categories, as his fantasy owners should have appreciated throughout this season.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Conley (hamstring) provided 22 points (8-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT) and five assists in 42 minutes against the Mavericks on Wednesday.
Impact: Conley tweaked his hamstring during Monday's game, but the ailment had no impact on Conley's availability Wednesday, when he played 42 minutes in an overtime win. In fact, the point guard converted two free-throws with just over one second remaining to propel Memphis to victory. Conley's health appears to be all good entering postseason play.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Conley injured his right hamstring during Monday's game, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Impact: Conley played through the injury to finish the game, and he doesn't think it will hold him out of Wednesday's game. However, there's a possibility that the Grizzlies simply decide to rest him Wednesday, so owners will want to watch for his status before tip-off.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Miller was firing away on Monday, scoring 21 points (8-11 FG, 5-6 3Pt) in 30 minutes of action.
Impact: Miller has been absolutely locked in over his past three games. He's connected on 72.4 percent of his field goals and almost 80 percent of his 3-pointers. Memphis has nothing to gain in its final regular season game on Wednesday, as it's already clinched the eighth seed, so it should be interesting to see what kind of playing time Miller will get. If they decide to use him, it might be wise to take a last-second flier on the sharpshooter.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Randolph scored 32 points (15-25 FG, 2-2 FT) to go along with nine rebounds and two assists in 39 minutes Monday.
Impact: Randolph had his highest-scoring game of the season on Monday, bullying the Suns frontcourt to help the Grizzlies lock up the final spot in the West. It was a nice sign to see the big man have a game like this following back-to-back duds over the weekend.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Miller has averaged 10.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.3 steals over his last three games.
Impact: Miller has seen a bump in output over this stretch, but it can partly be attributed to the absence and decreased play of Tayshaun Prince (ankle). Now that Prince is back on the court, it's possible that Miller's production might be curbed.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Koufos has averaged four points, 1.7 rebounds, one assist and one block in his last seven games.
Impact: Koufos has seen his minutes fluctuate this season but has been fortunate enough to have only missed one game this year. His production, however, hasn't been all too impressive, so his efforts are better left on the waiver wire in almost every depth of league or contest.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Davis has played an average of 14.7 minutes off the bench in the Grizzlies' past 10 games.
Impact: Davis has seen minutes off the bench throughout the month of April, even though he's endured patches during the season when he was left on the bench. The Grizzlies are currently playing important basketball games, and he has an integral part in giving Memphis some postseason hoops. However, he hasn't been able to amount enough production to warrant attention from a fantasy perspective.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Leuer has played just 16 minutes over the Grizzlies' past eight games.
Impact: Leuer enjoyed some consistent playing time during the season, but now that Memphis' games are more crucial, the third-year player doesn't stand much of chance to record significant minutes throughout the rest of the year. His spot on the depth chart behind Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph and Ed Davis will likely keep Leuer's role limited.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Udrih has averaged just 5.9 minutes on the court since being acquired by the Grizzlies on Feb. 26.
Impact: Udrih stands a slim chance to see more playing time than his average during the Grizzlies' final two games or their hopeful playoff run. He sits behind Mike Conley and Nick Calathes on the depth chart, which is the reason that Udrih's role on the team is so minuscule.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Franklin has only recorded 11 minutes on the court since being recalled from the D-League on Apr. 2.
Impact: Franklin spent more than a month with Fort Wayne to progress his game. It's not uncommon for non-high profile rookies to spend time in the D-League in order to get some playing time under their belt. This doesn't mean that he won't have future success in the NBA, but it does mean that he's not a factor for fantasy purposes this season.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Pondexter (foot) is still recovering from his season-ending injury, but there hasn't been an update to his status since the initial stress fracture was detected in December.
Impact: Pondexter only managed to play in 15 games this season but will look to return next year. His current contract will keep him in Memphis for the next few years, so he doesn't have to deal with the danger of becoming an injured free agent.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Calathes is averaging five points, two rebounds, three assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.1 blocks on the season with Memphis.
Impact: Calathes is solidly the backup point guard behind starter Mike Conley, but that role only gives Calathes around 16.7 minutes per game, which is hardly enough time to amount significant production. Expect Calathes to face a similar role during the Grizzlies' final two games and their hopeful playoff run.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | STATS
News: Gasol is helping keep Memphis in the playoff race with a 18-point, 15-rebound performance on Sunday versus the Los Angeles Lakers.
Impact: Because of Gasol's work down low, Memphis held a 48-34 edge in points in the paint in the victory.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Randolph had a pedestrian night Sunday during his 31 minutes on the court. He finished with 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 FT), six rebounds, four assists and two steals.
Impact: Randolph averages a double-double so Sunday's outing fell below his standards. He'll look to bounce back when the Grizzlies contest the Suns on Monday. The veteran will likely stand a better chance at getting back towards his averages in that future game.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Prince (ankle) returned from a three-game absence Sunday to fulfill his role as a starter. He recorded nine points, five rebounds, two assists and one block in 21 minutes.
Impact: Prince had a generous helping of minutes Sunday but it still fell short of the almost 26 minutes per game that he averages. The Grizzlies have two more remaining games on the schedule and Prince will likely look to get back into his old routine in those games before the playoffs.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Prince (ankle) is starting at small forward for Sunday's contest against the Lakers, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Impact: Prince missed the past three games due to a sprained ankle. His minutes could be limited Sunday since the Grizzlies only have two more regular season games remaining.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | STATS
News: Marc Gasol had 21 points and 10 rebounds as Memphis knocked off Philadelphia 117-95. The win, combined with Phoenix's loss, gave the Grizzlies control of the eighth seed in the Western Conference playoffs.
Impact: Gasol has recorded back-to-back double-doubles for the first time all season, as he had 20 pints and 14 boards in Wednesday's win over Miami.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Conley played 23 minutes against the 76ers on Friday night, but scored only two points (0-3 FG, 2-2 FT). He distributed eight assists and grabbed four rebounds and a steal in the game.
Impact: Especially for points league players, Friday's results look like a poor game for Conley. But with the game's final result never really in question, Conley seemed to feel no need to be an offensive attacker, instead focusing on his role as the team's playmaker. This looks like a one-game anomaly, and not something owners should read deeply into.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gasol played 31 minutes Friday night against the 76ers. He scored a game-high 21 points (9-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), grabbed 10 rebounds, and added a pair of blocks and assists.
Impact: Compared to expectations, 2013-14 has been a bit of a down season for Gasol. That having been said, he is starting to put together a hot streak now, with back-to-back double-doubles. Gasol should remain a fantasy staple through the end of the season - or at least until Memphis is eliminated from playoff contention.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Johnson will start again Friday versus the Sixers, FOX Sports Tennessee reports.
Impact: Johnson will start at small forward again in place of Tayshaun Prince, who is out with an ankle injury but has resumed participating in basketball activities. Until Prince returns, Johnson should see some extra minutes, particularly as he remains in the starting lineup.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Prince (ankle) won't play Friday versus the Sixers but will accompany the team for Sunday's visit to the Lakers, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Impact: Prince is slated to start basketball activities Friday, which bodes well for an appearance in the Grizzlies' three games thereafter. Acting as a steady wing defender, he would aid the team's playoff push.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | STATS
News: Conley finished with a team-high 26 points Wednesday.
Impact: He's averaged 21.7 points in three games.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | STATS
News: Randolph had 25 points and 11 rebounds Wednesday.
Impact: Randolph's eight field goals in the first quarter tied a franchise mark held by Mike Bibby.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Prince (ankle) will not play Wednesday versus the Heat, the South Florida SunSentinel reports.
Impact: Prince will miss his second straight game with a sprained ankle after sitting out Sunday's loss to the Spurs. James Johnson will get the start in his place, and consider Prince a game-time call for Friday's game against the Sixers.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Johnson will get the start at small forward Wednesday versus the Heat, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Impact: With Tayshaun Prince (ankle) out of the lineup, Johnson will slot in to make his third start of the season. His playing time has fluctuated of late, but he contributed a productive 20 points, five rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes Sunday against San Antonio.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | STATS
News: Prince is out with a sore ankle.
Impact: There's no timetable for Prince's return.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | STATS
News: Gasol had 24 points in Friday's win over Denver.
Impact: He's averaging 18.3 points in his last six games.
