  5. Press Release: Upon reevaluation, Desmond Bane is progressing in his rehabilitation from a right big toe sprain and sesamoid injury and has been cleared to begin a gradual re-loading protocol. If the toe responds positively to the re-loading protocol, a return to play is projected in 3-4 weeks.
  6. Everyone knows Jaren has a history of recovering from injury slower than originally expected. I’m not trying to drag him down but rather want to know when people expect him back from this injury?

    Anyone Have a Problem With Ja Doing This?

    Ron got interviews in private. That isn't the case anymore. The new reporter is not allowed to have private interviews so interviews are basically worthless for print media. By the time they have it written up it's already up on Twitter and all the other social medias. Sports journalism has changed a lot in the last 10 years.

    Anyone Have a Problem With Ja Doing This?

    Ron Tillery was a good reporter at the CA. The problem was he didn't develop a wide enough range of informants. He got spoon fed stories from Heisley, Wallace and Hollins. When they left he had no sources inside the organization and as we all know now, this FO is extremely secretive. I also believe he was burned out. He had been following the Grizzlies for years and was sounding more and more tired compared to the younger guys in the media.

  10. Quick Update: Ja's return was correctly predicted by 10 people. They were RDK4121, Joey Crawford, grizzgolf, UKGrizz, Gradey, FanboySlim, King Dork, Scotty J, Commodore64 and ChipC3. ZW's return is still undetermined but if he plays tonight then no one correctly predicted OKC as his return game. However, if he doesn't play tonight then My Man Allen and Flippin Grizzly will win. DB is still out so the only seven can potentially win. The Detroit game will eliminate My Man Allen and Flippin Grizzly.

  12. Probably because the team didn't want to lose both games and Miami has been here for two days waiting on the Grizzlies.
  13. Jaren Jackson (return from Injury Management) and Desmond Bane are both out tonight. Ziaire Williams in on the Doubtful list along with Jake LaRavia, Ja Morant and John Konchar.

    Memphis Grizzlies and NBA Roster Moves

    I see the team wanting Roddy to develop into a better defender along the lines of Dillon Brooks. Jake was supposed to play SF but it's pretty clear he doesn't have the foot speed to match up defensively at the three. It's way too early to make long term opinions on either player but I hope they both can create a niche (Roddy as a 3 and D, Jake as a sharpshooter) this season and am withholding my opinions long-term until a couple of seasons have passed. At this point last season I had Santi as a complete bust and ZW looking like a terribly weak pick at 10. Who knows where either of them will be by the end of the season? As for Dillon, pay the man slightly less than Jaren and lock in the Top 4 players for the next few years.

    Memphis Grizzlies and NBA Roster Moves

    Reading GTF talk about patience with rookies, instead of making rash conclusions on small numbers of games (law of large numbers is particularly pertinent to this way of thinking) is so refreshing. I am glad to see he's finally coming around to my way of thinking. The problem with Roddy right now is he is being forced to play large minutes in the big league instead of honing his skills in the G League due to injuries. If ZW was playing Roddy would be with the Hustle not the Grizzlies. Likely so would LaRavia (although his game is different and may not be as successful in the I'm getting mine G League style). Look at Bane, Santi, even Brooks. Their games didn't stay the way they played as rookies. They are all still improving. Even Ja and Jaren are still rounding out their games and becoming better players. Look around the league and you will see this is true for most teams. Last night Portland showed off their rising star Anfernee Simons. His rookie season he played 7 minutes per game. That went up to 21 MPG his second season, but he shot just 39.9% from the floor and 33.2% from the arc while scoring just 8.3 PPG. He's now playing 37 MPG and shooting 43% from the floor and 38.3% from the arc and scoring 23.9 PPG. He may even be an all-star this season. Time in the league helps players improve. Roddy is struggling like all but the most elite players do as rookies, but patience is needed now to not make big conclusions from a small subset of games. He is getting a lot of real game experience that will pay dividends down the road. Now if we could just get ZW healthy so the rookies can get PT in the G League where they belong, everyone can relax about this matter.

  20. Chip being optimistic. Bane was taking shooting practice before the Knicks game. He has been out since November 13 with an injury described as expected to miss 2-3 weeks. He could be back against Minnesota honestly, but I suspect the team will wait until we return home.

  22. I believe people are underestimating Santi's defensive impact and/or overstating his ability looking at his statistics. When you think defense on the Grizzlies it begins with Jackson and ends with Brooks. Adams, Clarke, Aldama, Bane, etc are at best average defenders and at worst lousy defenders. Santi can defend three positions well and two more adequately (yes he's been switched to opposing PGs on from time to time and he's performed better than Morant when he has. The fact is that Aldama hasn't reached his full potential. He has played in 51 NBA regular season games over two seasons. He seems capable of becoming more than serviceable on defense given time. He should be considered a rookie right now however.
