Dillon Brooks started for the Grizzlies on Friday against the Blazers and ended his afternoon with 15 points (6-of-16 FG, 2-of-9 3PT), four rebounds, four assists and a block in 35 minutes for head coach Taylor Jenkins.
Brooks picked up the start in this one, as did Kyle Anderson. Brooks struggled to get his shot to fall from deep but it's probably wise to expect some rust from everyone, especially when it comes to jump shots. Brooks has limited fantasy value when his shot isn't falling and carries even less value in leagues that factor in shooting percentages. The Grizzlies are in a fight to hang on to the final playoff spot in the West and will need sizable contributions from 3-and-D guys like Brooks and even Grayson Allen if they are going to maintain their place in the standings.
