Desmond Bane News
Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard Desmond Bane and small/power forward Kyle Anderson have been placed in the league's health and safety protocols, ruling them out indefinitely. Bane has been a breakout sensation in his second season, with his scoring average climbing up to 17.7 PPG in addition to shooting 42 percent from beyond the arc. Anderson has slid into a bench role in 2021-22, which has drastically affected his scoring upside, likely putting him on the wrong side of the waiver wire in many season-long formats. De'Anthony Melton and John Konchar are likely to step into larger roles for Bane and Anderson, respectively, while Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. can be expected to carry even more of the offensive heavy lifting for the time being.
Memphis Grizzlies guard Desmond Bane (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers. He was also considered questionable on Saturday and managed to play 30 minutes. It sounds like Bane is able to play through the quad issue, but the organization might not push it. His absence would mean more value for De'Anthony Melton and possibly Tyus Jones. Melton is someone worth adding in most formats with Dillon Brooks (ankle) sidelined multiple weeks. Ja Morant (thigh) is also questionable for this game, so Bane and Melton could be looking at huge games. Fantasy managers should check back and see if Bane is able to play through the issue again.
Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard/small forward Desmond Bane continued his breakout season with 32 points during a 114-113 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Monday. The 23-year-old shot 12-for-22 from the field, including 6-for-11 from behind the arc, and 2-for-2 from the line. The TCU product also added six boards, three assists, a block, a steal, and three turnovers across 37 minutes. With an ADP in the 100s, fantasy managers who snatched Bane at the end of their drafts should be ecstatic. The second-year swingman has averaged 17.2 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 2.9 triples, and 1.0 swipes on 47.2% shooting from the field, including a stellar 42.6% from deep, and 93.5% from the line.
Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard Desmond Bane provided a game-high 28 points on 11-for-19 shooting in Sunday's 127-102 win over Sacramento, sinking four of six attempts from deep. He pulled down four rebounds and registered two assists with two steals and one turnover in 32 minutes. Bane has become a consistent scoring option for the Grizzlies this season and is averaging close to 17 points per game with some solid rebounding numbers, and fantasy managers can rely on him to deliver a few assists and steals as well. He gets a very tough matchup next against the Suns, who limited Bane to only 4-for-13 shooting and nine points in this season's first meeting.
