Memphis Grizzlies Roster
- Western Southwest
- FedEx Forum
Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant scored a team-high 22 points in a losing effort to the Clippers on Wednesday. Morant added six rebounds, four assists, four three-pointers, and a steal in 31 minutes. The 21-year-old has had an up-and-down April, though the highs- 36 points and 12 assists on Monday- outweigh the lows- 10 points and seven turnovers on April 6. Morant will get a Friday matchup against the Trail Blazers, who have allowed the third-most FanDuel points per game to point guards.
Memphis Grizzlies forward Brandon Clarke (hip) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. He is likely going to miss his second straight game here, but has a better chance of playing on Monday. His fantasy value window is quickly closing with Jaren Jackson Jr. reportedly returning in April. Until then, Xavier Tillman will have streaming appeal without Clarke or Jackson on the court Saturday.
Memphis Grizzlies power forward/center Brandon Clarke (hip) will miss Friday's contest against Chicago due to a sore right hip. Clarke's fantasy stock has taken a hit since he shifted to the second unit in mid-February. With four straight single-digit scoring performances, season-long managers have likely begun to look elsewhere, even before a larger proliferation of injury concerns. Xavier Tillman Sr. stands to see an elevated minutes allotment with Clarke down, although his fantasy ceiling should remain fairly capped. Clarke's next chance to take the floor comes Saturday versus the Bucks.
Memphis Grizzlies guard De'Anthony Melton (leg) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Chicago Bulls. This marks the fifth game in a row that Melton has missed due to a leg issue. It's uncertain when he'll be able to get back on the court. In the meantime, Grayson Allen and Desmond Bone will see increased playing time. Allen is the better option between the two and could be a low-end streaming choice for Monday's slate.
Memphis Grizzlies guard De'Anthony Melton (leg) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Indiana Pacers. This marks the fourth game in a row that Melton has missed due to a leg issue. It's unclear when he'll get back on the court and is quickly becoming a cut-candidate. In the meantime, Grayson Allen and Desmond Bone will see increased playing time. Allen is the better option out of the two. He had a 30-point outing the other night, so he could be a possible streaming choice for Sunday.
