The Grizzlies have a lengthy injury report ahead of Sunday's game with Andrew Harrison (illness) questionable and Deyonta Davis (right and left knee soreness), Chandler Parsons (right knee soreness) and Wayne Selden (right knee soreness)…

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed Yuta Watanabe to a two-way contract for two years.
The Japanese born Watanabe was the Atlantic-10 defensive player of the year. After going undrafted he played on the Brooklyn Nets’ Summer League team. Watanabe will likely spend most of his time in the G-League getting reps. To make room for his signing, the Grizzlies released Myke Henry who missed all of Summer League this year.

When asked why Marc Gasol and JaMychal Green didn’t play in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s loss, J.B. Bickerstaff said “I thought those guys (the reserves) earned the right to play.”
The interim coach went on to say, “You know, they cut the lead down. I didn’t want to disrupt the rhythm of that group, so I just let them run.” A masterful tank job is at play here, and luckily for owners both Gasol and Green were productive through their three quarters. Gasol finished with 17 points, six rebounds and seven assists while Green picked up 11 points and eight rebounds. Both players have been playing too well to bench right now but it will give fantasy owners some pause if there are equivalent alternatives at hand. The fact that the Grizz will likely pull similar tricks going forward should slightly improve the outlook of guys like Deyonta Davis and Myke Henry.

Chandler Parsons will not play on Wednesday as he is away from the team to tend to a personal matter.
It’s believed that Parsons was attending the funeral for his longtime agent, Dan Fegan. With him out of action, Myke Henry could pick up some extra minutes at the forward spots and makes for a dart throw if you need steals.

Ben McLemore will miss Monday’s game against the Spurs for personal reasons.
McLemore is coming off a 20-point outing so hopefully he doesn’t lose his forward momentum while he’s away. The starting shooting guard spot looks open tonight, with Wayne Selden, Myke Henry and starting small forward Dillon Brooks looking at more room to operate. There’s not much fantasy appeal here.

JaMychal Green will play on Saturday night in Orlando, per coach Bickerstaff.
Green’s return comes on a night where Marc Gasol will rest, so it’s pretty nice timing on that front. That also means Jarell Martin, Ivan Rabb and even Myke Henry should also see some opportunities even if they don’t come at the power forward spot. Both are decent options right now, with Martin the more likely to get worthwhile minutes. The Grizzlies will be a bit undersized against Orlando tonight so we’ll see if they try to push the pace.

March 3, 2018, 2:33 pmTyreke EvansSG, Memphis Grizzlies
Tyreke Evans has been ruled out of Saturday night’s game as he continues to deal with a rib injury.
Evans went for an MRI that revealed some cartilage damage, but coach Bickerstaff said that it’s an injury he’s dealt with before and not something that’ll keep him out long-term. There were no specifics given, however, and owners shouldn’t be counting on Evans in the near future. Ben McLemore started at shooting guard last night and is in line for extra opportunities with so many players on the injured list these days. The same can be said for Myke Henry, who is quietly putting some solid fantasy lines on his resume.
