The Memphis Grizzlies lose James Ennis

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,Need to step up by joelapinski on Wednesday 23 November 2016 at 8:29 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without 26-year old small forward James Ennis for at least the next two weeks due to a strained calf.  Ennis has played in 14 games (13 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 29.2 minutes, 9.1 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game.  With Chandler Parsons also out due to injury, the Grizzlies are going to need some other guys to step up.  34-year old Tony Allen will likely move back into the starting lineup.  Allen has played in 7 games (5 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 22.4 minutes, 7.1 points, 3.6 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game.  39-year old Vince Carter will still get his fair share of P.T.  He has played in 14 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 27.6 minutes, 9.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.  21-year old undrafted rookie Troy Williams could also see a bump in P.T.  He has played in 9 games (1 start) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 7.3 minutes, 2.3 points, 0.2 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game.

Chandler Parsons is hurt again for the Memphis Grizzlies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,Need to step up by joelapinski on Monday 21 November 2016 at 8:56 pm

28-year old small forward Chandler Parsons of the Memphis Grizzlies is out indefinitely due to a bone bruise in his left knee.  Parsons has played in 6 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 21.0 minutes, 7.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game.  He is only shooting 39.1% from the floor and 23.8% from three point range so far this year.  26-year old James Ennis will move back into the starting lineup at small forward until Parsons is ready to return to action.  Ennis has played in 13 games (12 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 30.5 minutes, 9.2 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 steal per game.  The Grizzlies should be in solid hands until Parsons returns to action, as Ennis has played well for them so far this year.

The Memphis Grizzlies need Zach Randolph to step up

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Need to step up,The NBA Playoffs by joelapinski on Friday 22 April 2016 at 8:22 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies are only averaging 71.0 points per game and they are only shooting 35.8% from the floor, 31.3% from the three point line and 58.3% from the free throw line so far against the Spurs.  So one man is not to blame!  But, power forward Zach Randolph is the guy the Grizzlies were going to make the focal point of the offense against the Spurs.  He has started 2 games against the Spurs so far in this series and he is averaging 29.0 minutes, 8.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.  Randolph is only shooting 8 of 30 (26.7%) from the floor, but that’s because he’s settling for jump shots instead of mixing it up in the paint.  He is only 1 of 2 (50%) from the free throw line so far in his series, as he has not been aggressive at all.  He needs to step up and be a man starting tonight in Memphis!

The Memphis Grizzlies need Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph to step up

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Need to step up,The NBA Playoffs by joelapinski on Thursday 25 April 2013 at 8:07 pm

The Grizzlies need center Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph to step up soon, or they are going to see the 2012-13 season end with a thud.  Gasol has started both games for the Grizzlies in this series and he is averaging 42.5 minutes, 16.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.5 blocked shots per game.  Randolph has also started both games in this series and he is averaging 28.0 minutes, 13.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 0.5 assists and 1.0 steal per game.  The Grizzlies need Gasol and Randolph to toughen up both offensively and defensively around the basket, or this series is going to be over soon.

Tayshaun Prince needs to play a little better for the Memphis Grizzlies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Need to step up by joelapinski on Friday 12 April 2013 at 8:20 pm

33-year old small forward Tayshaun Prince has not played too well since coming from the Pistons in the Rudy Gay trade.  Prince has played in 33 games (32 starts) for the Grizzlies so far and he is averaging 31.8 minutes, 8.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.  Prince has now played in 78 games (77 starts) overall this year and he is averaging 32.2 minutes, 10.5 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.  He is one of the more overrated basketball players in recent memory and the Grizzlies are going to need him to step up in the playoffs.

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.

The Memhis Grizzlies are likely going to bump up Quincy Pondexter’s P.T.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Need to step up by joelapinski on Thursday 21 February 2013 at 4:19 pm

The Grizzlies are likely going to bump up 24-year old shooting guard Quincy Pondexter’s P.T. the rest of the way this year.  He has played in 30 games (1 start) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 22.2 minutes, 6.5 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game.  He is shooting 42.9% from the floor, 42% from three point range and 76.5% from the free throw line so far this year.  Pondexter has now played in 160 games (15 starts) in his first three years in the NBA and he is averaging 15.0 minutes, 4.1 points, 1.8 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game.

The new guys have had mixed results so far for the Memphis Grizzlies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Need to step up by joelapinski on Thursday 14 February 2013 at 3:24 am

Rudy Gay, Marreese Speights and Wayne Ellington are all now ex-Grizzlies and the players they got in return for them have been getting mixed results.  Small forward Tayshaun Prince has replaced Rudy Gay in the starting lineup for the Grizzlies.  He has played in 6 games (5 starts) so far this year for the Grizzlies and he is averaging 32.3 minutes, 10.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game.  24-year old Austin Daye has been Prince’s backup, just like he was in Detroit.  Daye has played in 6 games (0 starts) so far for the Grizzlies and he is averaging 13.3 minutes, 6.5 points, 2.0 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game.  Power forward Ed Davis was one of the big keys to the Gay deal and he is off to a slow start for the Grizzlies.  Davis has played in 6 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far and he is averaging 8.0 minutes, 2.8 points, 1.3 rebounds and 0.2 assists per game.  Power forward Jon Leuer is the only guy the Grizzlies got back for Speights, Ellington, Selby and a first round pick.  Leuer has played in 4 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 2.0 minutes, 0.5 points and 0.3 rebounds per game.  The Grizzlies need these guys to step up in the very near future.

The Memphis Grizzlies hope that Darrell Arthur steps up soon

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Need to step up by joelapinski on Tuesday 5 February 2013 at 4:28 pm

The Grizzlies dealt Marreese Speights to save money on the salary cap, but they did it with the idea that 24-year old PF/C Darrell Arthur could handle a bigger role.  The Raptors wanted Arthur in the Rudy Gay trade, but the Grizzlies refused to add him to the deal.  Arthur has played in 34 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 18.0 minutes, 7.1 points, 3.3 rebounds and 0.7 assists per game.  He has now played in 222 games (74 starts) in his first four years in the NBA and he is averaging 18.7 minutes, 6.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game.  Despite getting Ed Davis from the Raptors, I still look for Arthur to see his fair share of P.T. as the Grizzlies’ front office likes him.

The Memphis Grizzlies are going through some changes at shooting guard

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Need to step up by admin on Monday 28 January 2013 at 5:08 am

31-year old Tony Allen might have to pick up more minutes in the near future due to the knee injury to Quincy Pondexter and the recent deal of Wayne Ellington to the Cavs.  Allen has played in 39 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 27.1 minutes, 8.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.7 steals per game.  Allen is one of the best defensive players on the Grizzlies and that’s why he makes the big bucks.  19-year old rookie Tony Wroten is likely going to pick up a lot of P.T. until Pondexter returns to action.  Wroten has played in 10 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 7.6 minutes, 3.1 points, 1.7 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game.  Maybe his shooting will improve (33.3% from the floor), now that he will be getting some consistent P.T. for a little while.
