  1. Chris Paul ready to play

    The Rockets just became a lot more unlikeable.
  2. Conley out at least 2 weeks

    I've seen Mario and Harrison start. I would like to see Kobi Simmons and that's not because I've seen him a great deal. It's because I've seen enough of the other two.
  3. The play of injured Conley and unreliable Mario has actually made me start thinking, "Put Harrison in there". At least I've wondered about moving Kobi up.
  4. McLemore/Selden

    Yes, it is the first positive news on any of these injuries. Tony Parker just returned to the Spurs after a very brief G-League visit. I think every coach will now be able to say, if Tony Parker can play rehab games in G-League after a significant layoff, almost any player can.
  5. Mario Chalmers

    In the future, Chalmers won't be out there to close out games. Conley will. And if Mike is hurt for an extended period or during the playoffs, there are other problems. Mario would have benefitted from playing for Hollins who wasn't a fan of the flopping and whining, and more of a "just play" guy. I like that he irritates other teams, but I grow weary of the flop fest buffet he offers on a nightly basis. Also, in fairness to Mario, he's also still in his first month of NBA ball after a significant 1 year + absence.
  6. Memphis's future starting lineup projection thread

    FWIW, here is an injury update on Grizzles web page (10/31). JaMychal Green - On Opening Night JaMychal Green suffered a sprain of his left foot/ankle. He is progressing well and continuing his rehab currently, while also beginning light court work. He is expected to return to game action in approximately two weeks. Ben McLemore – Ben McLemore is continuing to rehab the fracture of his right fifth metatarsal and has returned to full practice, including contact drills. He is expected to return to game action in approximately two weeks. Wayne Selden – Wayne Selden is continuing to progress as he rehabs his right quad tendinopathy. He is progressing back into limited practice activities and his status remains day-to-day.
  7. McLemore/Selden

    You need to think more negatively. I think the minutes thing will be less of an issue because players are going to get injured, thrusting Brandon Wright and Andrew Harrison into the starting lineup while 2-4 players from this list (Conley, Gasol, Parsons, Chalmers, Tyreke, JaM, Tony Allen, Brian Cardinal, Hakim Warrick) sit with injuries.
  8. Grizzlies Signed Tyreke Evans

    He's a net positive, however, the black hole statement is somewhat true. When Parsons got hot, it was Mario and Tyreke who cooled him off by not getting him the ball back. I think if Parsons was hot when playing with Conley and Gasol, you would see him get a few more shots or set people up better.
  9. Charlotte @ Memphis 10/30/17

    For the first time since Parsons joined the team, I was thinking last night that he needs to play more. He should have been in there the last few minutes of the game. They were up 7 when JMart came into the game for Parsons with 7 minutes left. Maybe he is on a minutes restriction still, but 19 minutes isn't enough. The lineup for the majority of the last 4 minutes should have been Mike, Tyreke, Ennis, Parsons, and Gasol.
  10. Who Was A Better Fit For the Grizz

    Only SFs with a PER > 16 that have played less than 24 MPG 4. Chandler Parsons 7. Rudy Gay 16. Jeff Green (I find that group of 3 interesting).
  11. Team Hero vs Rockets 10/28/2017

    Indicates most coaches in the past would have kept a player that hot out there or played them longer. I don't know if it was foolish or wise, but more a comment as to what other coaches in the past would have done when someone was that hot. I'm wondering if Parsons and Ennis can play together, and rotate Harrison out much faster.
  12. Just going to state the data: After more than 7% of the season: When Chandler plays: W W W W W When Chandler sits: L Take that for Otters!!!!
  13. Do the Grizzlies have a shot at Eric Bledsoe?

    Our needs at the SF and PF/C positions are still greater than our needs at Guard. If you can get the salaries to work, which is tough, I don't want to give up any forwards to get another guard. Plus, there is that twitter thing, and the torn meniscus and knee soreness issues that have reduced the number of games he has played in the past. I know, that would make him an appealing free agent to Chris Wallace, but I'm good right now.
  14. Hello, Dillon Brooks!

    He's a mega-church pastor, and if any man here has a mom or wife who has been in a women's Bible study type group (or any female posters here), they probably have had a study guide from Tony Evans's daughter, Priscilla Shirer. Tony Evans will not help us on either side of the floor, IMO, but probably would have been a great on the mic.
  15. Stat Check - Early Look at the Numbers

    I think most on here accept this, and right now, people need to compare Harrison to a 3rd string pt guard, even though he is starting, especially if both Benny Mac and Selden are meaningful contributors. It will be interesting to see who else is out of the rotation once all guys are healthy, which likely really won't be too often give the Grizzlies and individual player histories. But if all 15 players are healthy, does Martin see the floor once JaM returns or maybe it is Wright, or maybe it is matchup dependent? Will both Selden and McLemore play or will one win out, and the other one sit next to Deyonta all game? I think Fiz stays with a 10 man rotation for the most part, but again, injuries will probably dictate this anyway
