When it comes to the New Orleans Pelicans, trust your gut

After a tough loss to open the season against the Memphis Grizzlies yesterday, New Orleans is one of many cities feeling like the overreaction capital. Just like the preseason, it’s difficult to lose or gain complete hope from one game. With Golden State up next, the Pels have a tough road, but we...

Reports: JaMychal Green Out 3-4 Weeks With Ankle Sprain

Reports: JaMychal Green Out 3-4 Weeks With Ankle Sprain

Green goes down in first minutes of opener, opens door for youngsters Four minutes into the season opener against the New Orleans Pelicans, Memphis Grizzlies starting power forward JaMychal Green leaned on his knees, head touching the floor in what appeared to be serious pain after suffering an ankle injury. He was helped off the floor and did not return to the game. After an MRI today, it was first reported by Shams Charania that Green suffered a high ankle sprain/bone bruise and David Aldridge reported later that Green will be out three to four weeks. Fortunately for the big man out of...

Memphis Grizzlies: JaMychal out ‘several weeks;’ how do they get through without him?

The Memphis Grizzlies won 101-93 on Wednesday night, but lost forward JaMychal Green for several weeks with a left ankle sprain. Before the preseason even started, the Memphis Grizzlies had planned to release stretch forward Jarell Martin when the preseason had finished, but we all knew if the front...

Five Notes on Grizzlies/Pelicans

Five Notes on Grizzlies/Pelicans

The Grizzlies started the season with a win last night, defeating the New Orleans Pelicans 103-91 and creating several new narratives in the process. You can find straight recaps of game action elsewhere—I want to talk about what I think matters from last night. Five Things ★ Dillon Brooks is for real. He’s going to have bad rookie games, and maybe even more of them than good ones, but last night showed that his preseason performance wasn’t fool’s gold: he’s an NBA player, and most likely sooner rather than later. Last night Brooks got hot and stayed in the game...
Grizzlies to waive or trade Baldwin, Zagorac today

Grizzlies to waive or trade Baldwin, Zagorac today

The Grizzlies have until the close of business today to get down to the official 15-man opening night roster, and it's been a matter of some speculation who would be the final players waived. As first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and confirmed by the Flyer, the two guys on the outside are Wade Baldwin, IV and Rade Zagorac. The decision to cut bait with Baldwin is no doubt the more frustrating of the two. Taken in last year's first round, Baldwin failed to develop in a way that the Grizzlies found promising, and you only have to do a couple of Twitter searches...
Five Things About Grizzlies/Rockets

Five Things About Grizzlies/Rockets

Last night the Grizzlies lost another preseason game, this one a 101-89 home showdown against the newly Chris-Pauled Houston Rockets. With Wayne Selden out (and Ben McLemore still nursing that broken foot back to health) Andrew Harrison got the start at shooting guard, and things got more interesting from there. Here are five of those interesting things from last night. ★ Preseason games with an 8:40PM tip should be outlawed by the Geneva Convention. This might be a little Inside Baseball, but a late tip makes for an even later night for the people covering the...
Ten Things About Grizzlies/Hawks

Ten Things About Grizzlies/Hawks

The Grizzlies lost a preseason game to the Atlanta Hawks last night, 100-88. I don’t put much stock (or any, really) in preseason wins and losses, but that doesn’t mean preseason games are totally meaningless. Here are ten things we can take away from last night’s game. Chandler Parsons as a small lineup power forward is a thing. As Peter Edmiston pointed out on Twitter, that’s actually the only spot he’s seen any minutes this preseason. And while it’s not really ideal for your $94M playmaker to be a backup 4, that spot is actually an OK fit for his size and speed at...

Beyond the Arc Podcast #83: THE RETURN

This week on the show, Kevin and Phil talk about: Everything is different with the Grizzlies this year. Are they going to be good or not? The amazing recovery of Mario Chalmers and the wish for Chandler Parsons to do the same. The Grizzlies’ surprisingly deep wing rotation How much faster will they play this year? Hey, remember the draft? And how does Rade Zagorac look? Another reason the Grizzlies should be in the East Why do we sing the national anthem before NBA games anyway? The Rockets experiment—will it work? What about the Pelicans? ...
Media Day Roundup 2017: Knees, Self-Reflection, and Protest Ignorance

Media Day Roundup 2017: Knees, Self-Reflection, and Protest Ignorance

A Period of Transition is an underrated Van Morrison record, but the 2017–18 Grizzlies are about to test whether it also works as a framework for a basketball season. At yesterday’s Media Day, there was no greater theme (outside of the unavoidable intersection of politics and pro sports) than the Grizzlies’ new faces and new challenges. At best, the upcoming season will be a brilliant struggle to carve a new identity out of a formless young roster. At worst, that struggle could drag the whole enterprise down to the basement of the stacked Western Conference. Here are some of...
Grizzlies trade Troy Daniels to Phoenix

Grizzlies trade Troy Daniels to Phoenix

According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, the Grizzlies have traded Troy Daniels to the Phoenix Suns for a future second-round pick. Included in the package headed to Phoenix was the middle of the 2018 second round picks of the Grizzlies, Hornets, and Heat, which means the Grizzlies essentially paid the Suns a second-rounder to get off of Daniels' salary for this season rather than cutting him outright. Daniels signed with the Grizzlies last summer for three years. His shooting won games, there's no question about that, but his defense never really improved, and in the...
Deflections: The Roster, TV Angst, and The Buy/Sell Clause

Deflections: The Roster, TV Angst, and The Buy/Sell Clause

The season technically starts next week, kiddos, but we've got a lot to talk about already, and most of it only contributes to Grizzlies fans' long-running overuse of antacids. Let's dive in to what's been happening this week. Ivan Rabb and the Roster Strategy No, it's not an indie band, it's the current state of the Grizzlies' roster, with less than a week to go before Media Day and training camp. After weeks of radio silence, the Grizzlies signed second-round pick Ivan Rabb to a three-year contract. Rabb was present in Summer League but didn't play due to an...
