Anthony Tolliver got by as a starter on Friday vs. the Thunder, accounting for eight points, five rebounds and two 3-pointers over 26 minutes.
Tolliver went 3-of-7 from the field and failed to take a free-throw, record an assist, steal or block. He's not going to hurt your chances, but he is obviously not about to win you any fantasy trophies. Just realize what you are signing up for when you plug Tolliver into your lineup – at best, he'll return low-end value in standard leagues.

Brandon Clarke will come off the bench for Friday's tilt against the Thunder, allowing Anthony Tolliver to draw the start.
Clarke did not live up to expectations on Wednesday in his first start in place of the injured Jaren Jackson Jr. (torn meniscus), but as he has already made a living coming off the bench for Grizzlies this season, don't fret over this change a lot. Tolliver figures to have some value as a 3-point specialist, but he's not about to receive major minutes, which leaves him as just a deep-league option.

Jaren Jackson Jr. (knee) has been ruled out of the remainder of the season after suffering a torn meniscus.
Jackson suffered the injury in Monday's loss to the Pelicans after making contact with an opponent's knee. This is a brutal blow for the Grizzlies who are currently the eighth seed in the Western Conference. Jackson had been playing well leading up to the injury and his absence could open up more playing time for Brandon Clarke, Anthony Tolliver and even Gorgui Dieng.

Anthony Tolliver scored 10 points on 3-of-6 shooting with two 3-pointers and four rebounds in a loss to the Rockets on Sunday.
Tolliver was begging for the ball at times on the wing when he was open, but he was able to get five looks beyond the arc and knocked down two of them. He was signed by the Grizzlies for this playoff run and could be trying out for a potential deal for next season. There is a chance Tolliver garners enough minutes and shots to become a 3-point specialist in deeper leagues.

Anthony Tolliver bounced around a bit in 2019-20, starting with the Blazers before being traded to the Kings and ultimately landing with the Grizzlies for a playoff run.
Tolliver's stretch-four profile should help Memphis in a depth capacity, though he is only connecting on 32.2% of his threes this season. As a top-385 fantasy option, the veteran shouldn't be of great concern going forward. His greatest impact may come in the locker room for a young Memphis squad.

Anthony Tolliver's deal with the Grizzlies for the remainder of the season is now official.
Tolliver was in the middle of a 10-day contract (beginning March 11) with the Grizzlies when the league was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. The team has decided to bring Tolliver aboard the rest of the way, much like the Clippers will reportedly do with Joakim Noah. Tolliver is well respected across the league for his presence in the locker room and the Grizzlies stand to benefit from his services when the league resumes next month in Orlando.

Anthony Tolliver, whose 10-day contract expired on March 11, is likely to sign with the Grizzlies according to Marc Stein.
Tolliver was last with the Grizzlies and they were likely to sign him to another contract anyway, but Stein is reporting that several teams are interested. The stretch four is widely acknowledged as a good teammate and better guy, and he'll be a valuable presence in a young Memphis locker room as they try to secure a postseason spot.

Anthony Tolliver, who is a member of the NBA Players Association Executive Committee, shared that the players are seeking to return to action and receive their money as soon as it is feasible.
Tolliver is part of the 12-man Executive Committee, and he has a good pulse on the Player Association's overall perspective as a result. This is another indicator that the players want to make basketball games happen as soon as it is safe to do so. Tolliver noted that the owners are also interested in securing as much money as possible, and with so much at stake, that should incentivize all parties to end the suspension of play.

Anthony Tolliver drained four triples for 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting (all 3-point attempts) in his debut with the Grizzlies on Monday, and he added three rebounds over his 19 minutes.
Tolliver just signed a 10-day contract with Memphis, and with their banged up frontcourt, he could realistically play around 20 minutes per game. Keep in mind that this game was over early, so he did get some garbage time. Though, the Grizzlies are often involved in blowouts lately, so this could repeat itself (aside from the 80 percent from distance) fairly often.

The Grizzlies have signed Anthony Tolliver to a 10-day contract.
Tolliver was recently bought out by the Kings. He has struggled with his shooting from distance this season and is not a recommended add.

The Kings are working on a contract buyout with Anthony Tolliver, per Shams Charania.
Tolliver has seen limited action since being traded to Sacramento but should be a popular target for contenders as a solid stretch four and renowned locker room presence. Though he won't come into fantasy relevance no matter where he plays, perhaps a change of scenery can get him out of his shooting funk. Tolliver is hitting just 30.8% of his threes, which is the worst he's shot (by nearly three percentage points) since 2012.

Anthony Tolliver started on Saturday and scored seven points on 3-of-10 shooting with 11 rebounds and one triple in 28 minutes.
Tolliver got the start with Hassan Whiteside sitting out with an illness. Whiteside shouldn't miss too much time and Tolliver will return to being a 3-point streamer in deep leagues when Whiteside returns.

Anthony Tolliver picked up 18 minutes on Saturday night, going 4-of-5 from the field (and the 3-point line) to finish with 12 points.
Tolliver has been out of the rotation over the last two games after starting against Minnesota on Saturday, but the injury to Skal Labissiere forced him into duty tonight. The veteran is a 3-point streaming option in deep leagues.

Anthony Tolliver did little in his start for the Blazers on Saturday, managing zero points (0-for-3 shooting) with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes.
Tolliver can be left on the wire and is not worth a gamble, especially at this stage of his career. He was outplayed by Skal Labissiere, who chipped in 11 points, eight rebounds, two dimes and two blocks on 5-of-9 shooting.

Anthony Tolliver will start for an injured Carmelo Anthony (left knee contusion) on Saturday vs. the Wolves.
Tolliver does not bring enough juice to the table to make for a revenge-game scenario vs. a former team. He's a low-end option in very deep leagues considering Melo is not expected to be out for long.
