Chandler Parsons (right knee and ankle soreness) and Brandon Wright (right groin) have been ruled out for Saturday’s game against the Cavs, with Marc Gasol (left foot) questionable.
Gasol’s ankle has been bothering him all season yet he has not missed a single game yet and is putting up top-40 value. His field-goal percentage is at a career-low 41.4 percent (previous low of 45.9) and his turnovers are at a career-high 3.0 (previous high of 2.2). If Gasol sits, 6’9 JaMychal Green may have to slide over to the five with a lot of mix and matching at the three and four positions. Tyreke Evans may be a very strong fantasy option today if Gasol sits but it is unlikely he leads them to a victory. This may be a no-contest with the Cavs rolling with 10 straight wins and the injury-plagued Grizzlies losing 10 in a row.
