    PG, International

    Briante Weber, after spending the end of last season with the Greek club Olympiacos, is joining the Metropolitians 92, based in Boulogne-Levallois, France.

    Weber attended free agent mini-camps in June with the Raptors and Wolves, and spent time in the G-League last year, but has never been able to catch on long-term with an NBA team. He has had brief stops with several NBA squads over the years, so it is possible he could return to a roster at some point this season. There is nothing to see here in terms of fantasy though.

    G, Miami Heat

    Guard Briante Weber has left the Heat's G League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce, to sign in Greece with Olympiacos, a team coached by former Cavs coach David Blatt.

    Weber had several training-camp tryouts with the team, including one at the start of this season. He had been hopeful of a Heat reunion when Goran Dragic went down with knee surgery, but the Heat instead shifted Justise Winslow to a playmaking role. Weber leaves the G League after averaging 15.1 points, 6.2 assists and 4.5 rebounds this season, while shooting 43 percent from behind the arc.

    The Miami Heat have waived Briante Weber, Jarnell Stokes, Rodney Purvis and Raphiael Putney, leaving one roster spot open.

    Weber had a strong preseason with 9.0 points and 2.6 steals in 16.6 minutes over five games and has been stat sheet stuffing the G-League for a few years now. He has already appeared in an NBA game for five different teams in his short career on 10-day deals and such and will likely be in the same role again this year.

    Briante Weber has agreed to a training camp deal with the Heat.

    Weber has played in 45 career games between the Grizzlies (twice), Heat (now twice), Hornets, Warriors and Rockets. He always floats around the fringes of the league but we'd be surprised to see him make the final roster unless someone gets hurt.

  • Tyreke Evans
    PG/SG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Tyreke Evans is away from the team and will miss Saturday’s game to tend to an ill family member.

    The Grizzlies have been giving Evans games off anyway but tonight will be an excused absence rather than a rest day. He could miss multiple games here as the Grizz will surely let him take all the time he needs with his family. Despite a career renaissance this season, Evans might be a drop candidate given the ambiguity around his status heading into next week. Dillon Brooks will take on more of the scoring load tonight with Andrew Harrison likely to start at point guard if he can play. Mario Chalmers, Briante Weber and Ben McLemore will also get more run but those first two are your most reliable targets.

  • Andrew Harrison
    PG/SG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Andrew Harrison is listed as questionable for Thursday’s game vs. the Hornets with a right wrist injury.

    Harrison missed multiple weeks with this wrist injury before returning for only two games. With tank season in full swing and Tyreke Evans back in the lineup, do not be surprised if Harrison is dealt with cautiously. Briante Weber would be the one to take Harrison’s minutes but he is not a fantasy option at this time.

  • Andrew Harrison
    PG/SG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Andrew Harrison drew the start but played just 16 minutes in Wednesday’s blowout loss, finishing with two points, one rebound and one assist.

    He made another start with Tyreke Evans resting but definitely burned anyone who decided to stream or roll with him in DFS. Garbage time did in most of the starters tonight and it didn’t help that the reserve point guards were a little more productive. Mario Chalmers played 20 minutes with 10 points, four rebounds, five assists, two triples and a steal while Briante Weber posted two points, four assists and three swipes in 23 minutes. Evans will play tomorrow, per the team, so none of these guys should be up for consideration.

    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Briante Weber led the Grizzlies in minutes played on Monday in the 115-118 loss to the Nets, he scored 15 points with four boards, three steals and an assist.

    Weber shot 7-of-11 from the court but you’d hope to have more than one assist from your floor general. Weber got extra playing time as Mario Chalmers was out on Monday but both Chandler Parsons and Ben McLemore both saw the court after missing their last game. None of the Grizzlies should be trusted down the stretch outside of JaMychal Green and Marc Gasol, when he’s playing.

  • Tyreke Evans
    PG/SG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Tyreke Evans will not play on Monday night against the Nets and Andrew Harrison will start in his place.

    Evans wasn’t on the injury report but was a late addition to the team’s inactive list. No word on why that is but we’ll keep you updated. This is Harrison’s first game back since Febraury 28th so while he’s starting he may not play his usual minutes. Mario Chalmers and Briante Weber will be there to split the leftover minutes.

  • Mario Chalmers
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Mario Chalmers played seven minutes and went scoreless with one assist on Saturday, his first game since March 3rd.

    Chalmers’ return won’t do much for fantasy purposes now that Tyreke Evans is also back, and he could fall out of the rotation when Andrew Harrison (wrist) is healthy enough to play as well. He did knock Kobi Simmons from the rotation tonight, so there’s that. Surprisingly, Briante Weber still got good work, picking up three points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in 20 minutes. Right now he’s a better deep (deep) league play than Chalmers but that could change on a whim.

  • Mario Chalmers
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Mario Chalmers will be available on Saturday night against the Nuggets.

    Chalmers has missed the last six games with a hamstring injury. He probably won’t start tonight but could end up retaking the job once he gets back to full speed. His return will really hurt Kobi Simmons and could push Briante Weber from the rotation, though Rio himself doesn’t have a ton of appeal considering Tyreke Evans is already back.

    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Guard Briante Weber has agreed to a 10-day contract with the Grizzlies while Xavier Rathan-Mayes won’t be brought back.

    Memphis is simply making sure that there is no continuity in their roster in order to keep losing. Weber spent 13 games with the Rockets earlier this season, averaging 2.0 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 9.1 minutes per game. The team is currently dealing with plenty of injuries in their backcourt and Weber could find himself in a prominent role off the bench but he has failed to impress in previous stints in the NBA and it’s unlikely he has any fantasy value.
