Jae Crowder (right knee soreness) is being listed as doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Suns.
De'Anthony Melton and Kyle Anderson figure to benefit the most from if Crowder is forced to sit. If you've been holding onto Crowder feel free to drop him.

Ja Morant recorded a double-double on Friday, tallying 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting with 12 assists and two rebounds in 32 minutes.
While the double-double was a welcome sight, owners want to see more from Morant. He was light on the peripherals, failing to record a steal or a trey in this outing. He's still a rookie and has a lot of room to grow. Expect bigger and better things from him as he gets more games under his belt.
January 24, 2020, 10:11 pmDillon BrooksSF, Memphis Grizzlies
Dillon Brooks was solid for the Grizzlies on Friday, producing 27 points on 7-of-15 shooting from the field and 9-of-9 shooting from the line, adding three rebounds, four 3s, one assist and one steal.
Brooks has been one of the more pleasant surprises coming out of Memphis this season. He's emerged as a well-rounded two-way player, who has been a top-65 play over the last couple of weeks. There's no reason to expect him to dip too low from this range outside of the occasional regression-game.
January 24, 2020, 9:47 pmJae CrowderPF, Memphis Grizzlies
Jae Crowder is in a nasty funk and it found a new low on Friday with the forward recording seven rebounds, three assists and one steal, going scoreless as he missed his only two shot attemps from the field (both 3s).
Crowder is not the 3-and-D guy you're holding out for, at least not lately with him flirting with top-240 value over the last two weeks. Needless to say, it's time to drop him for a more productive fella off the wire.
January 24, 2020, 9:43 pmJaren Jackson Jr.PF, Memphis Grizzlies
Jaren Jackon Jr. committed five fouls in Friday's 125-112 win over the Pistons, but found a way to be productive, putting up 29 points on 10-of-14 shooting with four 3-pointrs, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks.
It's really only a matter of time until JJJ figures out how to play more intelligently on defense to avoid foul trouble. While it's not rocket science, he's struggled with it on and off this season. Once that enigma has been solved, his true greatness and fantasy dominance will finally be unleashed.

Grayson Allen experienced left hip soreness in Friday's game and will not return.
Allen managed to see just six minutes of action and missed his only attempt from the field to finish the game with one rebound and one turnover. He's not fantasy-relevant at this time,

Jonas Valnciunas stuffed the scorecard in Wednesday's 95-119 loss to the Celtics, ending with 16 points (7-13 FG), 13 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks.
Valanciunas is flirting with top-50 value this season and has been a top-25 asset over the last two weeks. He looks locked into his role on this young team and should be a consistent performer for owners.
January 22, 2020, 10:32 pmJaren Jackson Jr.PF, Memphis Grizzlies
Jaren Jackson Jr. had four swats on Wednesday but could not find his shot, managing only 13 points on 5-of-15 shooting to go with five rebounds and an assist.
JJJ couldn't get into a rhythm tonight, but that was true of the whole Grizzlies team. He has some word to do before getting back to his ADP inside of the top-40, but has the talent to do it, and we should see much better games in the back-half of the season.
January 22, 2020, 10:28 pmKyle AndersonSF, Memphis Grizzlies
Kyle Anderson came off the bench to drop 10 points and collect two assists and two steals on Wednesday.
The Grizzlies gave the bench a lot of minutes tonight as they were blown out by the Celtics. There probably isn't much to read into for standard leagues here as none of them were able to have much of an impact with their time.
January 22, 2020, 7:33 pmJoakim NoahC, Memphis Grizzlies
The Mavs have touched base with Joakim Noah in the midst of losing C Dwight Powell to a season-ending Achilles injury.
Noah is one name in what is sure to be a long list of potential names that the Mavs will look in to in replacing their starting C. Even if Noah were to sign with the Mavs, it is hard to see him walking into fantasy value.

Despite being slowed a bit by foul trouble (five fouls) on Monday, Jaren Jackson Jr. finished strong with 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting, adding six rebounds, three 3s, one assist and two blocks in 30 minutes.
JJJ is coming off a 10-point dud on Saturday, but has quickly returned back on course for second-half explosive flurry. The slow start is no longer in the discussion and we're looking forward to his big breakout performances post-ASB.
January 20, 2020, 9:27 pmJA MorantPG, Memphis Grizzlies
Ja Morant went 5-for-14 from the field as he struggled to score his 16 points on Monday but was able to contribute elsewhere as he put up three rebounds, one trey, nine assists and one steal in 35 minutes.
Morant is on track to finish 2019-20 with a bang. He's been hot lately, posting top-25 9-cat per-game value over the last couple of weeks. Is it sustainable? Yes, it is. However, do not be surprised to see a regression-game from the rookie every once in a while moving forward.
January 20, 2020, 9:21 pmDillon BrooksSF, Memphis Grizzlies
Dillon Brooks had the hot hand on Monday, leading the Grizzlies in scoring with a season-high 31 points (second time) on 12-of-25 shooting, including three treys, nine rebounds, four assists and two steals in 35 minutes.
Brooks is on a heater once again as this is his third straight game where he's scored 24 points or more and has only failed to score in double figures once out of his last 10 games. Brooks' outlook ROS is looking good, with his role secure and him taking a significant leap forward.
January 17, 2020, 10:50 pmJonas ValanciunasC, Memphis Grizzlies
Jonas Valanciunas finished Friday's 113-109 win over the Cavs with only eight points but 18 rebounds, four assists and four blocks.
Valanciunas predictably feasted, as Tristan Thompson got ejected and nobody else could hang with JV on the glass. He's going to cruise along with top-65 numbers from here on out, with the Grizzlies settling into a nice rhythm that has their main frontcourt pieces all returning standard-league value. Expect Valanciunas to put more points on the board in the next contest.
January 17, 2020, 10:47 pmBrandon ClarkePF, Memphis Grizzlies
Brandon Clarke put forth a strong effort in Friday's home victory over the Cavs, chipping in 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting to go with two rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer in 24 minutes.
Clarke went through a little lull at the start of January but has been solid through the last week, so hopefully you were able to buy low. The rookie has been outstanding, and his current top-100/80 standing in 8/9-cat leagues is buoyed by an elite .635 mark from the field. Fellow rookie Ja Morant was also solid in this one, posting 16 points, five rebounds, eight assists, three steals and a block. Big multi-cat lines are becoming a very regular occurrence there.
