Andrew Harrison is likely to start in place of Mike Conley (vertebrae) for the next six weeks.
Talk about being thrown in the deep end. Harrison enters the starting role as an undrafted rookie, and while he’s fifth on the entire Grizzlies’ team in minutes played this season, he’s not exactly an experienced point guard. His averages of 8.2 points, 4.8 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 1.8 steals don’t jump off the page, but they may increase when he’s given more time with the starters. He’s worth a definite add in deep leagues, and if you’re feeling risky enough to take a flyer on him it may just work out. Troy Williams and Wade Baldwin could be viewed as players like Harrison who could be worth a hard look in standard leagues. They are each probably lottery ticket pickups, but one of those tickets should win. Troy Daniels needs to get a speculative add in deeper leagues and JaMychal Green should be owned in 12-team leagues.
