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 | RotoWire
News: Prince (ankle) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Heat, the Commercial Appeal reports.
Impact: Prince sprained his ankle during the second quarter of Friday's game, forcing him to sit out Saturday against the Spurs. However, with the veteran considered day-to-day, Prince stands a chance of playing Wednesday, but his status likely won't be known until prior to tip-off. Should Prince be ruled out, Tony Allen would figure to start another game in his stead.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | STATS
News: Prince is out with a sore ankle.
Impact: There's no timetable for Prince's return.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Johnson came off the bench for 32 minutes against the Spurs Sunday, scoring 20 points (7-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and adding five rebounds and three assists.
Impact: Johnson broke onto the fantasy scene this winter, producing multiple hot streaks with across the board fantasy value, but has gradually cooled as the weather thawed. Throughout March, he recorded a DNP or played fewer than 10 minutes in more than half of the Grizzlies' games. Then came Sunday, when he once again flashed his fantasy rock-star potential. Johnson's biggest problem has always be his inconsistency, and there is little evidence now to believe that he has finally cured that problem this time around.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Allen will start in Sunday's contest against the Spurs, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Impact: Allen is starting in place of the injured Tayshaun Prince (ankle). It's likely that Allen will continue to start in Prince's place for as long as he remains out.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Prince (ankle) didn't practice Saturday and won't take the court Sunday in San Antonio, FOX Sports Tennessee reports.
Impact: Prince was in evident pain near the end of the first half of Friday's eventual win versus the Nuggets, which knocked him out of the remainder of the game. Diagnosed with a left ankle sprain, he'll sit down until at least Wednesday, when the Grizzlies take on the Heat. In the interim, expect Mike Miller and Tony Allen to handle the available wing minutes.
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.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Prince had 12 points (6-8 FG) in 14 minutes, before hurting his ankle in the win over the Nuggets on Friday.
Impact: Prince had to be helped from the court and didn't return after the second-quarter injury. Mike Miller could see more playing time, if the former Piston is forced to miss future games, including Sunday's contest at San Antonio.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Prince (ankle) won't return Friday, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Impact: Prince, who hurt his ankle in the first half of Friday's game, had to be helped off the court and now appears unable to return to the game. More news should come out soon on whether or not he'll miss any additional games with the injury.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Prince injured his left ankle Friday, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Impact: Prince went down holding his left ankle in the first half of Friday's game and had to be helped off the court and into the locker room. It did not seem like he could put any weight on the ankle, so his return to the game and the seriousness of the injury is unknown.
Wed. Apr 2, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Conley scored seven points (3-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt) and had eight assists in 33 minutes against Minnesota on Wednesday night.
Impact: It was a miserable night for Conley and it dropped the Grizzlies back into a tie for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. It's hard to expect many more efforts like this, but then again there was no reason to expect this in the first place.
