The Grizzlies will start Mike Conley, Andrew Harrison, James Ennis, JaMychal Green and Marc Gasol on opening night against the Pelicans.
This lineup was expected after word came out the Grizzlies would be bringing Chandler Parsons off the bench thus solidifying James Ennis as the starter at small forward. Harrison is more of a surprise beating out Tyreke Evans and Wayne Seldon. During the preseason Harrison averaged 8.6 boards, 2.2 assists, 2.6 boards and 1.8 steals in 18.4 minutes per game, but shot just 30 percent from the field. The 23-year-old is just a flier at this point with Evans chomping at the bit behind him and Ben McLemore returning in 11 games or so.
