    Brandon Clarke (right thumb soreness) will play in Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

    Clarke is sitting inside the top-80/105 in 9/8 cat leagues this season at a relatively modest 21.2 minutes per game. If an injury were to occur to Jaren Jackson Jr. or Jonas Valanciunas, Clarke could show off season-altering upside.

    Kyle Anderson (right foot soreness) will play against the Rockets on Tuesday and is expected to start in place of Jae Crowder (hip).

    Anderson has been a disappointment this season, sitting outside of the top-250 on a per-game basis in 9/8 cat leagues. He'll have the chance at extended minutes in this one, but he isn't a recommended option.

    Jae Crowder (right hip soreness) is being listed as out against the Rockets on Tuesday.

    Crowder is posting roughly top-100 value in 9/8 cat leagues on the season as he has contributed nicely across the board, apart from 37 percent shooting from the field. With Crowder out, Kyle Anderson is expected to make a spot start for the Grizzlies.

    Bruno Caboclo (left knee soreness) is being ruled out ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Rockets.

    Caboclo has shown flashes when given the time, but he is well off the fantasy radar while the team is healthy. He can continue to be ignored in fantasy circles.

    Jae Crowder (right hip soreness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

    De'Anthony Melton could be in line for more minutes if Crowder is out. The rebounds and steals help, but Crowder's scoring has been inconsistent of late.

    Brandon Clarke (right thumb soreness) is questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Clarke has provided 12.2 points and 5.8 rebounds in only 21.2 minutes per game this season. Solomon Hill is likely to move up in the rotation should Clarke be unavailable.

    Kyle Anderson (right foot soreness) is questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Anderson is hardly in the rotation lately. He's not worth rostering in most leagues even when he is healthy.

  • Jonas Valanciunas
    C, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jonas Valanciunas crushed the Warriors in Sunday's 122-102 win over the Warriors, needing 29 minutes to post 31 points (13-of-17 FG), 19 rebounds, a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer.

    The Warriors are sitting ducks this year and opposing centers are feasting. Valanciunas made quick work of Omari Spellman and company and is absolutely rolling along with top-50 value. Hopefully you were able to buy low after a quiet start to the year. Jaren Jackson Jr. was no slouch either, delivering 21 points, five rebounds, a steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

  • Tyus Jones
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Tyus Jones was able to collect 11 points, four assists, three steals and a 3-pointer in Sunday's home win over the Warriors.

    Jones hasn't blossomed despite the change of scenery this year, actually averaging fewer minutes than he did in the guard-heavy Minnesota rotation last season. He remains a solid deep-league source of assists and steals but his sleeper appeal ended up being misplaced. Ja Morant had 11 points, seven rebounds, 10 assists and five turnovers, but we've come to expect much better nights out of the rookie.

  • De'Anthony Melton
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    De'Anthony Melton was able to fill out the box score in Sunday's easy win, posting 10 points, three rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer in 20 minutes off the bench.

    The Warriors sure are generous, you have to give them that. Three players (Melton, Jae Crowder and Kyle Anderson) were able to grab three swipes apiece in this one but Melton is the most interesting for fantasy purposes. He's done well to play himself into the rotation this year and offers top-150 upside because of his ability to post lines like this. Crowder is probably a safer play but is more of a low-end grinder in 9-cat leagues.

  • JA Morant
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Ja Morant dropped a remarkable double-double including 22 points (11-for-20 shooting), a career-high 14 assists, seven rebounds and two steals as the Grizzlies defeated the Spurs 134-121 on Friday.

    Ja Morant continues to put up an incredibly impressive rookie season and he and Jaren Jackson Jr. are really starting to find their groove. He is currently a top-75 player on the season and can finish higher if he stays healthy.

  • Jonas Valanciunas
    C, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jonas Valanciunas finished Friday's win over the Spurs with 21 points (7-for-11 shooting), nine rebounds, three assists, a triple and a block.

    Valanciunas has been locked in and playing well as the starting center in Memphis lately and there's no reason to think he can't keep it up. The Grizzlies are a young team looking to develop talent but they don't really have anyone who can replicate Valanciunas' skillset.

  • Jaren Jackson Jr.
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jaren Jackson Jr. led the Grizzlies with 24 points (8-for-11 shooting), five triples and three rebounds on Friday.

    Jackson was on fire from downtown on Friday going 5-for-7 from distance. The shooting was nice but he missed out on the potential for a monster game by not putting up many rebounds and no defense. That said, the 3-point prowess seems to be growing here which is huge for his value moving forward.

  • Dillon Brooks
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Dillon Brooks only went 8-for-20 from the field on Friday, but made it count with 22 points, six assists, five triples, four rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 31 minutes.

    Friday night's line represents a more well-rounded stat profile than what we're used to from Brooks. The six assists and two blocks were especially welcome surprises. Brooks is worth rostering but becomes a quick drop candidate with an extended cold streak.

  • Brandon Clarke
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Brandon Clarke scored 10 points (3-for-5), grabbed nine rebounds, dished four assists, swatted two shots and swiped one steal in Friday's win over the Spurs.

    Clarke led the Grizzlies in bench minutes with 23 and posted a well-rounded line even hitting all four of his freebies. The only other bench player to make an impact was De'Anthony Melton who finished with 13 points, six assists, four rebounds, a triple and a block.
