21-year old power forward Jarell Martin, 23-year old point guard Briante Weber and 28-year old power forward Alex Stephenson are getting minutes for the Memphis Grizzlies due to widespread injuries and they have been stepping up so far. Martin has played in 12 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 12.9 minutes, 4.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game. But, in his last four games, Martin is averaging 23.3 minutes, 12.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game. Weber has stepped right into the starting lineup. Weber has played in 3 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 35.3 minutes, 5.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.0 steals per game. It’s not all rosy for Weber, as he is only shooting 31.6% from the floor so far for the Grizzlies. Stephenson has played in 2 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies since recently signing with them and he is averaging 22.0 minutes, 8.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 blocked shot per game. The opportunity is going to be there for these guys, so the Grizzlies need them to keep playing well.
