Ivan Rabb returned to action on Sunday November 18.

Nov 19 - 3:04 AM

Marc Gasol posted a 26-point, 13-board double-double across 36 minutes during Sunday's win over the Timberwolves.

Gasol added four 3-pointers, three assists, two steals, three swats and two turnovers while he was out there, and he's really gotten off to a superb start this season after a disappointing 2017-18 campaign. He's currently riping away a career-high 1.7 steals per contest, which ranks No. 1 amongst bigs, and he's also connecting on a career-high 2.0 triples per contest. As long as the Grizzlies are competitive, his value will be safe.
Nov 18 - 7:01 PM

JaMychal Green (jaw) logged 21 minutes off the bench in his return to action on Sunday, finishing with eight points, eight boards, one assist, one steal, two blocks and one turnover.

Green received roughly two more minutes than Jaren Jackson Jr. in this one, so it'll be interesting to see how the PF minutes shake out now that he's back in action. JJJ did get into some early foul trouble, which helped Green from a minutes standpoint, but the Grizzlies probably don't want to mess with their starting unit given that they're now tied for the No. 2 seed out West. Even in a best-case scenario, Green will probably be confined to minutes in the mid-20s, so he's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Nov 18 - 7:01 PM

Jaren Jackson Jr. scored 13 points on 6-of-10 shooting Sunday, to go with two rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer, three swats and three turnovers in 19 minutes.

Jackson Jr. got into some early foul trouble, which explains the limited minutes, but it’s a great sign that he was able to stick with the starting unit despite the return of JaMychal Green (jaw). The Grizzlies now own a record of 10-5, which ties them for second place in the Western Conference, so JJJ’s spot in the starting five should be safe.
Nov 18 - 7:00 PM

Kyle Anderson dished out a season-high seven assists on Sunday, to go with four points, three rebounds, two steals, one block and one turnover in 31 minutes.

Slow-Mo has been seeing more consistent minutes since Dillon Brooks (knee) went down, and over the past five games he’s come through with averages of 5.4 points, 8.8 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.4 turnovers per game on 40.6% shooting in 34.4 minutes a night. He's a low-end option in deep leagues.
Nov 18 - 7:00 PM

Garrett Temple scored eight points on 3-of-9 shooting Sunday, to go with eight rebounds, one 3-pointer, one assist, two steals and one turnover in 33 minutes.

Temple got off to a slow start in this one, missing all four of his shots and his only free throw attempt through the first half of action, but he turned it around after halftime and came through with a decent stat line. Temple is never going to wow you with his numbers, but he doesn’t really hurt you anywhere and is locked in as a starter in Memphis, giving him some deep league appeal.
Nov 18 - 6:57 PM

Mike Conley scored 18 points on 5-of-12 shooting (6-of-6 from the line) on Sunday, adding nine assists, two 3-pointers, one rebound and two turnovers in 35 minutes.

While the counting stats have been solid for Conley this season, he continues to struggle from an efficiency standpoint (40% shooting), and that’s been a major anchor on his value. He’s currently hitting a career-low 30.6% of his 3-point attempts and is connecting on just 48% of his shots at the rim, and that tends to be an issue for guys coming off Achilles injuries. Unless the efficiency improves, it'll be tough for him to scratch top-40 value.
Nov 18 - 6:57 PM

Jaren Jackson Jr. remains in the starting lineup Sunday even with JaMychal Green (jaw) back from injury.

JJJ has started since Green went down early in the season and has shown flashes of why people were so high on him coming in. Green will likely take some minutes away, but JJJ is still greatly important to the Grizzlies now, as well as their future.
Nov 18 - 2:47 PM

JaMychal Green (jaw) will return Sunday and is expected to play 24-27 minutes.

Green's return will take some time away from standout rookie Jaren Jackson Jr. JJJ has been very good and stands to hold onto the starting spot. Green is a speculative add in deeper leagues.
Nov 18 - 2:27 PM

JaMychal Green (jaw) is expected to return Sunday against the Wolves.

He has been out since Oct. 19 when he suffered a fracture to his jaw. Things are a little different now because Jaren Jackson Jr. has been outstanding, coming off a career-high 27 points. The Grizzlies are also playing solid ball right now, so Green may not get his starting job back. He would only be a speculative add in deeper leagues, and JJJ's fantasy owners shouldn't worry too much here.
Nov 17 - 5:25 PM

Wayne Selden scored 10 points vs. the Kings on Friday with two assists and one block.

He was 5-of-12 from the field, but the big takeaway is that he played a season-high 30 minutes. MarShon Brooks played just 14 minutes and hit 2-of-8 shots for six points, so Selden should be the first wing off the bench going forward and could have some sneaky deep-league value while Dillon Brooks (knee) is out.
Nov 16 - 10:45 PM

Marc Gasol scored 19 points with 15 rebounds, two assists, two triples and four turnovers in Friday's 112-104 win over the Kings.

The big man hit 7-of-12 shots, but struggled at the line with a 3-of-5 mark. Gasol is returning top-25 value in standard category leagues and the Grizzlies just improved to 9-5, so unless his 34-year-old wheels fall off or his team goes off the rails, his value is safe for now. He also passed Zach Randolph for the most rebounds in franchise history, so it was a great all-around night in Memphis.
Nov 16 - 10:41 PM

Omri Casspi (right knee soreness) returned to action for Friday's game vs. the Kings, scoring six points with two boards and one triple in nine minutes.

He's basically the 9th or 10th man in the rotation and doesn't have any fantasy appeal.
Nov 16 - 10:37 PM

Kyle Anderson scored two points on 1-of-4 shots despite playing 31 minutes vs. the Kings on Friday.

One of the most disappointing players of the season strikes again. It wasn't all bad with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block, but it's hard to trust him in category leagues unless you're punting points or triples.
Nov 16 - 10:36 PM

Jaren Jackson Jr. scored a career-high 27 points (11-of-16 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs) with six rebounds, four steals, two blocks and one triple in 31 minutes vs. the Kings on Friday.

This is the kind of mouth-watering upside JJJ has, yet he just turned 19 two months ago. Fouls were an issue again tonight, as coach J.B. Bickerstaff pulled him with five minutes to go when the rookie picked up his fifth. We can't imagine that JJJ will cede the starting job when JaMychal Green (mouth) gets back, but stranger things have happened and we're talking about a coach who started Chandler Parsons on opening night. Either way, JJJ's fantasy arrow is pointing straight up.
