    Jarrell Martin has signed with the Shenzhen Leopards of the CBA.

    Martin joins former NBA players Shabazz Muhammad and Dwight Buycks as they try to recover from a 1-4 start to the season. Martin played for the Magic last season after three years with the Grizzlies. He didn't make the Cavs roster after playing on their preseason squad but could make his way back to the NBA at some point.

    The Cavs have reportedly waived Jarell Martin.

    Cleveland is now down to a 13-man roster so expect a move that could actually impact the rotation in the coming days. Martin drew some preseason starts at center for the Cavs and should find a new home shortly as one of the better players currently available.

    The Cavs are have ruled Tristan Thompson (right groin soreness), John Henson (right groin strain) and Ante Zizic (left foot soreness) as out for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

    With the trio of big men sitting out, it could again be a lot of Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. tonight. It's worth noting that Jarell Martin is starting at C for the Cavs tonight.

    Jarell Martin has signed a one-year, non-guaranteed deal with the Cavs.

    Martin only played 7.8 minutes per game with the Magic last season in 42 games. If he can manage to stick on the roster, he can stretch the floor, as he averaged 35.1 percent from three last season. Martin is only a streaming option at best if their frontcourt is decimated by injuries, especially if Kevin Love has another injury-plagued season.

    Jarell Martin posted two points and three rebounds in 20 minutes on Wednesday night.

    Martin was acquired in an offseason deal with the Grizzlies and wasn’t much of a factor for the Magic, averaging 7.5 minutes a night through the first 41 games before tonight. As you might expect, he finished as a top-450 fantasy asset.

    The Grizzlies have traded Jarell Martin to the Magic for Dakari Johnson.

    Johnson was just traded by the Thunder to Orlando, though they also sent enough cash to cover his guaranteed deal. As such, he was never expected to last long as a member of the Magic. They end up with Martin, a forward who spent some time miscast as a small forward in Memphis' weird end-of-season lineups. He had a few moments of fantasy relevance and will help add depth at the power forward spot after Orlando lost Mario Hezonja in free agency. Johnson will be third at best on the depth chart in Memphis. Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel has since reported that the Magic have also sent the rights to 2015 second-round pick Tyler Harvey to the Grizzlies.

    Jarell Martin (ankle) will not play in Wednesday's season finale.

    Martin had previously been ruled out for the year, prematurely ending a decent second half. He saw time at center and both forward spots with so many Grizzlies in and out of the lineup, wrapping up with top-200 value in 22.7 minutes per game across 73 contests. Martin's low-end contributions on defense and across the box score produced just top-240/250 value from night-to-night but that discounts the top-215 value he returned over the season's final two months. It wasn't much, but Martin emerged as a 16-18-team contributor at times.

    Jarell Martin has been diagnosed with a serious left ankle sprain and will not play over the Grizzlies' final four games.

    Martin had emerged as a nice option for the Grizzlies, even if they played him for too many minutes at small forward in their tanking efforts. He's better suited as a power forward or center and ended up having some nice fantasy lines down the stretch, though that was no doubt thanks to some of the funky rotations Memphis trotted out. If this were a regular team, Deyonta Davis and Ivan Rabb would be the big winners, but the rotating cast of characters on the bench means just about anyone could have a nice night from game to game. Davis and Rabb are still the preferred options if you have to choose.

    Jarell Martin is listed as out for Friday's game vs. Sacramento with a left ankle injury.

    It may be easier to list the players that are actually playing rather than those that are out. Memphis will be extremely thin everywhere. Deyonta Davis and Ivan Rabb should be locked in for heavy minutes.

    JaMychal Green is out for Friday's game vs. the Kings with right and left knee soreness.

    The Grizzlies are going full tank and then some in Friday's matchup with the fellow lottery player Kings. Ivan Rabb and Deyonta Davis project to have tons of minutes as Memphis will have a thin frontcourt as they will be without Jarell Martin and Marc Gasol as well.

    Marc Gasol is out for Friday's game due to "rest."

    Apparently Marc Gasol needs to be rested and preserved so he will not be playing Friday, along with practically the entire Memphis Grizzlies team. Ivan Rabb and Deyonta Davis appear to be locked in for tons of minutes as JaMychal Green and Jarell Martin are out as well.

    Jarell Martin played well Wednesday night, scoring 15 points to go with five rebounds, an assist and two 3-pointers in the Grizzlies’ loss to the Pelicans.

    Martin shot 6-of-9 from the field and a perfect 2-for-2 from deep in his 22 minutes. His scoring benefited from Marc Gasol only getting three shots up in his limited minutes, where he finished 0-for-3 and and scored no points. Memphis has a lot of random names floating around and the Grizz have strayed away from their usual rotation, which Martin has been a part of. Steer clear of anyone not getting minutes from the Grizz in these final games.

    Jarell Martin scored 11 points with four boards and a triple on Monday against the Wolves but failed to help owners much as he shot 5-of-13 with no defensive stats.

    Martin’s value hinges on his ability to collect counting stats be it steals, blocks or triples. Martin needs to work on his ability to finish in isolation over the summer as his field goal percentage will hold back his fantasy production.

    Jarell Martin saw 38 minutes of action in Saturday's home loss to the Lakers, scoring 10 points on 5-of-13 shooting with 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and four blocks.

    Martin has flashed money counting stat potential and has averaged 2.1 cash counters per game in 29.0 mpg in his last seven contests. That's not good enough for regular sized leagues and everything else is a mess. But if you're in a pinch he might be worth a look as a flier pickup.
