Jonas Valanciunas (Grade 2 right ankle sprain) will miss the remainder of the season.
Valanciunas got hurt in the third quarter of Sunday's loss, and the Grizzlies will do the sensible thing and shut him down. JV has been putting up truly monstrous lines since being traded to Memphis and will be a hot commodity in drafts next season. Ivan Rabb looks like the pickup here with Joakim Noah also on the injury report, and we should see more minutes for players like Bruno Caboclo, Chandler Parsons, Julian Washburn and Yuta Watanabe with the Grizzlies forced to go small. Caboclo's the upside play for cash counters while Rabb is the best bet for rebounds and cheap double-doubles. Everyone else is a dart throw at best.
