Brandon Clarke News
Memphis Grizzlies forward Brandon Clarke finished the regular season by averaging 10.4 points, 5.3 boards, and 1.1 blocks. He played even better during the postseason, filling in admirably when needed. However, the 24-year-old, who is eligible for a rookie contract extension over the summer, is hoping to improve in one area specifically, his three-point shooting percentage. Clarke has been miserable in that area throughout his career, draining only 29.4% of his attempts, including a hideous 22.7% during the 2021-22 campaign. He has a chance to establish a more prominent role in the rotation this season. Yet, unless Clarke receives consistent playing time and works on his accuracy from behind the arc, it will lower his fantasy attractiveness, especially for managers in category formats.
The Memphis Grizzlies have ruled out guard Dillon Brooks (ankle) and forward Brandon Clarke (hip) for Thursday night's game against the Indiana Pacers. The team will be extremely short-handed in the game as start point guard Ja Morant (knee) is out as well. The Grizzlies played on Wednesday night, so Brooks is being held out as a way of managing his return from injury. He missed about two months with a left ankle sprain before returning a few weeks back. Clarke, meanwhile, is dealing with hip soreness. This will be his first missed game with the injury. Kyle Anderson could be in store for a big workload on Thursday while Ziaire Williams and John Konchar could see increased playing time as well.
Memphis Grizzlies power forward/center Brandon Clarke (eye) is listed as questionable ahead of Monday's game against the San Antonio Spurs. The third-year pro was poked in the eye during Saturday's game against the Chicago Bulls. He left the game after the incident and didn't return, finishing the game with just four points and three rebounds over 11 minutes. Clarke is averaging 10.4 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game this year while shooting 64.6% from the field. If he's unable to go on Monday, Jaren Jackson Jr. or Kyle Anderson could see extra minutes. Alternatively, we could see Xavier Tillman Sr. break into the rotation as a reserve forward.
Memphis Grizzlies forward Brandon Clarke (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dallas Mavericks. He was listed as questionable coming into this contest, but will sit out due to back soreness. His absence should mean more minutes for Xavier Tillman. Possibly, Santi Aldama gets into the rotation, but won't be a streaming option. Neither player is worth a look even with Clarke on the sideline.
