The Memphis Grizzlies lose Marc Gasol indefintely

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,Need to step up by joelapinski on Sunday 24 March 2013 at 1:05 pm

The Grizzlies will be without 28-year old center indefinitely due to an abdominal tear.  He has played in 68 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 35.2 minutes, 14.3 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.7 blocked shots per game.  Gasol has 15 double/doubles so far this year.  This is a huge blow for the Grizzlies, as Gasol could miss the rest of the regular season.  23-year old Ed Davis and 24-year old Darrell Arthur will be asked to play more to replace Gasol.  Davis has played in 24 games (4 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 14.5 minutes, 5.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, 0.2 assists and 1.5 blocked shots per game.  Arthur has played in 48 games (2 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 17.1 minutes, 6.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game.  The Grizzlies hope to have Gasol back by the time the playoffs start.

UPDATE:  (3/28/2013) – Marc Gasol made an amazing return to action in last night’s loss.  He played 36 minutes last night in which he scored 13 points, grabbed 5 rebounds, dished out 3 assists, stole the ball once and he blocked one shot.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by admin on Tuesday 8 January 2013 at 5:37 pm

The Grizzlies will be without 24-year old SG/SF Quincy Pondexter indefinitely due to a knee injury.  He has played in 27 games (1 start) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 23.1 minutes, 6.7 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game.  He is shooting 41.8% from the floor, 42.3% from three point range and 75.8% from the free throw line so far this year.  Pondexter will be missed as he was playing well off the bench for the Grizzlies this year.

The Memphis Grizzlies lose power forward Darrell Arthur for a while

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by admin on Thursday 27 September 2012 at 4:06 pm

The Grizzlies have lost 24-year old power forward Darrell Arthur for the next 4-6 weeks due to a non-displaced leg fracture.  He was injured in a pickup basketball game.  This is a bad break for both the Grizzlies and Arthur, as he is starting to look injury prone after missing the entire 2011-12 season due to injury.  Arthur has played in 188 games (74 starts) in his first three years with the Grizzlies and he is averaging 18.8 minutes, 6.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game.  The Grizzlies hope that Arthur will be ready to help them off the bench when the 2012-13 season begins.

The Memphis Grizzlies lose Zach Randolph for a while

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by admin on Wednesday 4 January 2012 at 8:25 pm

The Grizzlies will be without 30-year old, starting power forward Zach Randolph for the next 6-8 weeks due to a torn ligament in his knee.  Randolph has played in 4 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 28.3 minutes, 14.8 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.3 steals per game.  He has now played in 160 games (159 starts) in his first three years with the Grizzlies and he is averaging 36.8 minutes, 20.3 points, 11.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.  Randolph is going to be very hard to replace for the Grizzlies.

The Memphis Grizzlies lose Darrell Arthur for the year

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by admin on Monday 19 December 2011 at 3:43 pm

The Grizzlies have lost 23-year old power forward Darrell Arthur for the rest of the season due to a torn Achilles tendon.  Arthur played in 80 games (9 starts) for the Grizzlies last year and he averaged 20.1 minutes, 9.1 points, 4.3 rebounds and 0.7 assists per game.  He has now played in 188 games (73 starts) in his first three years with the Grizzlies and he is averaging 18.8 minutes, 6.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game.  The Grizzlies are now in the market for another big man as they are suddenly a tad thin in the frontcourt.

Rudy Gay is officially done for the year for the Memphis Grizzlies

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by admin on Thursday 24 March 2011 at 6:41 pm

24-year old SG/SF Rudy Gay is officially done for the year for the Memphis Grizzlies as he needs shoulder surgery.  Gay played in 54 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies this year and he averaged 39.9 minutes, 19.8 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.1 blocked shots per game this season.  Gay has now played in 372 games (335 starts) in his first five years with the Grizzlies and he is averaging 36.0 minutes, 17.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.3 steals per game.  The Grizzlies are getting along fine without Gay right now but they would be so much better with him.

The Memphis Grizzlies lose Rudy Gay for the next month

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,Need to step up by admin on Thursday 17 February 2011 at 12:56 am

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without 24-year old shooting guard Rudy Gay for at least the next four weeks due to a subluxation of his left shoulder.  Gay has played in 54 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 39.9 minutes, 19.8 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.1 blocked shots per game.  To survive without Gay, the Grizzlies need 25-year old Sam Young and 29-year old Tony Allen to step up.  Young has played in 53 games (21 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 17.6 minutes, 6.4 points, 1.7 rebounds and 0.7 assists per game.  He will likely move to small forward with Tony Allen playing shooting guard.  Allen has played in 49 games (8 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 16.9 minutes, 6.9 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.7 steals per game.  With the trade deadline looming, I wouldn’t be suprised to see the Grizzlies add either a small forward or shooting guard to help out off the bench until Gay returns to action.

The Memphis Grizzlies shut a couple players down for the year

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by alleyoop on Friday 2 April 2010 at 1:48 pm

The Grizzlies have shut down starting center Marc Gasol and backup SG/SF Ronnie Brewer for the season due to injuries. Gasol has a partially torn neck muscle while Brewer has a hamstring injury. Gasol played in 69 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies this year and he averaged 35.8 minutes, 14.6 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.6 blocked shots per game. He will be impossible for the Grizzlies to replace the last couple of weeks. Brewer only played in 5 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies after coming over in a trade with the Jazz. In those games, Brewer averaged 16.0 minutes, 2.0 points, 1.4 rebounds, 0.6 assists and 1.2 steals per contest. The Grizzlies better re-sign Brewer because they gave up a first round pick for him.

The Memphis Grizzlies lose Ronnie Brewer for a while

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by alleyoop on Monday 22 February 2010 at 8:20 am

Ronnie Brewer didn’t last too long for the Grizzlies before getting hurt. He partially tore his right hamstring in his first game with the Grizzlies and he will be out indefinitely. This is a bad break for the Grizzlies who traded a future first round pick for Brewer knowing that he would inject good talent into the bench which is young. Brewer played 12 minutes in his first game with the Grizzlies and he scored 2 points, grabbed 1 rebound and he stole the ball twice. This is a big loss for the Grizzlies.

Darrell Arthur will be back in action tonight for the Memphis Grizzlies

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by alleyoop on Tuesday 9 February 2010 at 4:19 pm

2nd year forward Darrell Arthur will be making his season debut tonight for the Grizzlies against the Hawks. He has missed the whole season until now due to a torn pectoral muscle. He played in 76 games (73 starts) for the Grizzlies as a rookie last season and he averaged 19.3 minutes, 5.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game. The Grizzlies need help off the bench so they are glad that Arthur is back.
