The Memphis Grizzlies are getting solid work from their rookies lately

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by joelapinski on Wednesday 16 March 2016 at 6:40 pm

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.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Wednesday 16 March 2016 at 6:34 pm

36-year old small forward Matt Barnes and 34-year old shooting guard Tony Allen have both been stepping up lately for the Memphis Grizzlies.  Barnes has played in 62 games (31 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 27.5 minutes, 9.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.1 steals per game.  In his last five games, Barnes is averaging 32.4 minutes, 15.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.0 blocked shot per game!  Barnes had a Triple-Double against the Pelicans last week in a Grizzlies’ win, as he finished up with 27 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists and 2 steals.  Allen has played in 52 games (45 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 24.9 minutes, 7.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.7 steals per game.  In his last five games, Allen is averaging 29.0 minutes, 13.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 3.2 steals per game.  With the rash of injuries the Grizzlies have suffered lately, they need Barnes and Allen to keep up the good work.

The Memphis Grizzlies sign Xavier Munford

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Wednesday 16 March 2016 at 1:13 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed 23-year old point guard Xavier Munford to a 10-day contract.  Munford played in 41 games (37 starts) earlier this year for the Bakersfield Jam of the D-League and he averaged 33.7 minutes, 20.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.0 steal per game.  He has now played in 88 games (52 starts) in his first two years in the D-League and he is averaging 27.4 minutes, 15.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.0 steal per game.  He has yet to play in the NBA yet.

The Memphis Grizzlies add a couple of reinforcements

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Saturday 12 March 2016 at 6:07 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed 24-year old point guard Ray McCallum and 28-year old power forward Alex Stephenson (to a 10-day contract).  McCallum played in 31 games (3 starts) earlier this year for the Kings and he averaged 8.3 minutes, 2.2 points, 1.0 rebound and 1.1 assists per game.  He has now played in 144 games (43 starts) in his first three years in the NBA and he is averaging 18.0 minutes, 5.9 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game.  McCallum and Briante Weber will likely share the point guard spot until Mike Conley returns to action (which is going to be a while).  Stephenson gives the Grizzlies a much needed big man.  He played in 4 games (0 starts) for the Clippers earlier this year and he averaged 3.0 minutes, 0.5 points, 0.5 rebounds and 0.5 blocked shots per game for them.  He also played in 31 games (all starts) earlier this year for the Iowa Energy of the D-League and he averaged 34.2 minutes, 15.9 points, 13.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.4 blocked shots per game.  Stephenson could get into the rotation as a backup player for the Grizzlies.

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without Chris Andersen indefinitely

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Saturday 12 March 2016 at 6:01 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without 37-year old center Chris Andersen indefinitely due to a separated shoulder.  Andersen has played in 9 games (4 starts) for the Grizzlies since they acquired him from the Heat and he is averaging 16.9 minutes, 4.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game.  Until Andersen can return to action, look for 31-year old center Ryan Hollins to play more.  Hollins has played in 20 games (3 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 12.1 minutes, 3.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game.

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without Mike Conley for the next 3-4 weeks

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Saturday 12 March 2016 at 5:57 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without 28-year old point guard Mike Conley for the next 3-4 weeks due to Achilles tendinitis.  He has played in 56 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies this year and he is averaging 31.4 minutes, 15.3 points, 2.9 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.2 steals per game.  The loss of Conley combined with the loss of Mario Chalmers puts the Grizzlies in dire straits at point guard.  Newly signed 23-year old rookie Briante Weber made his Grizzlies’ and NBA debut in last night’s win and he played 40 minutes in which he scored 10 points, grabbed five rebounds and dished out seven assists.  He also stole the ball once and blocked a shot.

JaMychal Green has been playing well for the Memphis Grizzlies as of late

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Friday 11 March 2016 at 3:41 am

Due to injuries, 25-year old power forward JaMychal Green is starting to get more minutes for the Memphis Grizzlies and he making the most of them.  He has played in 5 games (2 starts) for the Grizzlies so far in March and he is averaging 27.7 minutes, 14.2 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game.  He has now played in 60 games (8 starts) so far this year for the Grizzlies and he is averaging 16.3 minutes, 6.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game.  He is shooting an impressive 51% from the floor, 41.4% from three point range and 76.5% from the free throw line so far this year.  Green is a player on the rise for the Grizzlies and they need him to keep up the good work!

The Memphis Grizzlies sign Briante Weber

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Wednesday 9 March 2016 at 2:09 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed 23-year old point guard Briante Weber to a 10-day contract.  Weber played in 21 games (8 starts) for the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the D-League and he averaged 27.8 minutes, 10.1 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.0 steals per game.  The Grizzlies are running out of healthy bodies, so Weber could get a chance to show what he can do the next couple of weeks.

Mario Chalmers is stepping up for the Memphis Grizzlies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Tuesday 8 March 2016 at 12:11 am

29-year old point guard Mario Chalmers has been really good this year for the Memphis Grizzlies.  He has played in 53 games (5 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 22.5 minutes, 10.7 points, 2.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.4 steals per game.  In his five starts for the Grizzlies this year, Chalmers is averaging 36.8 minutes, 15.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 6.6 assists and 1.8 steals per game.  He is going to be starting the new few games due to Mike Conley being a little banged up right now.  Chalmers has now played in 59 games (5 starts) overall this year for the Grizzlies and Heat and he is averaging 22.2 minutes, 10.2 points, 2.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.4 steals per game.  The Grizzlies hope Chalmers keeps up the good work moving forward.

UPDATE:  (3/10/2016) – Mario Chalmers ruptured his right Achilles tendon last night and he will miss the remainder of the season.  He played in 55 games (7 starts) for the Grizzlies this year and he averaged 22.8 minutes, 10.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.5 steals per game.  Chalmers has been waived by the Grizzlies.

The new guys are stepping up for the Memphis Grizzlies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Thursday 3 March 2016 at 8:30 pm

When the Memphis Grizzlies dealt Courtney Lee and Jeff Green at the trade deadline, most “experts” laughed at the return outside of the draft picks (a first rounder and four second rounders).  But, 25-year old shooting guard Lance Stephenson, 23-year old shooting guard P.J. Hairston and 37-year old center Chris Andersen are all playing good for the Grizzlies.  Stephenson has played in 6 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far and he is averaging 22.5 minutes, 11.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game.  He is shooting an impressive 51.8% from the floor for the Grizzlies so far.  Hairston has played in 7 games (6 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 22.1 minutes, 9.4 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game.  Andersen has played in 7 games (2 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 16.7 minutes, 4.0 points, 3.9 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game.  The Grizzlies’ front office is looking like they really knew what they were doing at the trade deadline last month!
