Jaren Jackson Jr. was realizing his unicorn potential

Jaren Jackson Jr. was realizing his unicorn potential

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via Jaren Jackson Jr. is built different. I missed sports, but not the injury part of it. Moments before the Woj bomb of Jaren Jackson Jr.’s season-ending knee injury, I was writing about how he was breaking out in the Orlando bubble. Then, boom. Out for the season. The news of Jackson being out for the remainder of the bubble is demoralizing. The Grizzlies were already shorthanded, missing Tyus Jones and Justise Winslow. Their lead for the 8th seed shrinks by the day, as they haven’t corralled a win in the bubble to this point. And now, they’re...

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via He misses Tyus. The Memphis Grizzlies miss Tyus Jones. A lot. The value of the steady-handed Jones has never been higher as the Grizzlies feel the void left behind by his absence from the lineup. The second unit is rudderless, and when the starters are struggling (as Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. had for much of Monday night’s loss to the New Orleans Pelicans) that issue becomes only more pronounced. Right or wrong, the Memphis front office decided to stick with the familiar and bring back Anthony Tolliver for the NBA’s bubble in Orlando instead of...

A modern approach to the backup center

A modern approach to the backup center

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via This isn’t your father’s NBA. This is a position-less league that the Memphis Grizzlies are built for. Over the past month, there has been a lot of content on the rotation, particularly on who would be the 9th and 10th men. Given his size, defensive prowess, and the Grizzlies’ need for a pure big off the bench, Gorgui Dieng seemed like a lock for the rotation, leaving the 10th man spot to be decided between Josh Jackson and Kyle Anderson. Obviously injuries to Justise Winslow, and now Tyus Jones, have thrown a wrench in rotation plans, but it looks...

Keeping up without Tyus Jones

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via How the Grizzlies can manage minutes without Tyus The Memphis Grizzlies have already lost Justise Winslow for the season, and now Tyus Jones is out for at least a week with knee soreness. Depth has been widely discussed as a strength for Memphis and now that the Grizzlies are down two playmakers, that depth will be on full display. Tyus has been arguably (to some) the best back up point guard in franchise history — replacing him will be no easy task and will have to be done by committee. This current iteration of the Grizzlies roster has a total of three...

Exploring a Ja Morant-Tyus Jones pairing

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports Albeit certainly an undersized backcourt, Tyus Jones complements Ja Morant beautifully. The Grizzlies have yet to roll with the duo enough for fans to come to this realization. The Memphis Grizzlies roster is largely composed of previously unwanted misfits who are now thriving overachievers. Josh Jackson, Jonas Valanciunas, and Kyle Anderson are prime examples of players who resurrected their careers with the franchise. But there is one name I purposely left out who undeniably fits the bill as well — Tyus Jones. Jones spent the first four seasons of his...
