  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Set to play in preseason

    Bane (toe) said Thursday that expects to be a full-go for the preseason in the end of September, Damichael Cole of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

    Bane underwent surgery on his right big toe in May but is expected to be fully healthy for the 2023-24 campaign. With Ja Morant (suspension) out for the first 25 games of the season, the 25-year-old forward will likely be the focal point of Memphis' offense.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Signs massive extension

    Bane (toe) agreed to a five-year, $207 million contract extension with the Grizzlies on Friday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

    The Grizzlies now have their core of Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr. and Bane locked up to long-term deals. Bane has become an elite two-way wing, most recently averaging 21.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.9 three-pointers in 2022-23. With Morant suspended to start the season, we could see Bane take on an expanded role in the offense.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Undergoes successful surgery

    Bane underwent a successful procedure Tuesday to address a fracture of the medial sesamoid bone in his right big toe and is expected to make a full recovery ahead of the 2023-24 campaign.

    Bane suffered the injury Nov. 11 against the Timberwolves and missed 17 straight games, but he returned to action Dec. 23 and played the rest of the season with minimal absences. Over his final 46 regular-season appearances, the 2020 first-round pick averaged 20.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.1 steals in 31.3 minutes per game. Bane's availability to start next season will be especially important given Ja Morant is likely facing a lengthy suspension to start the year.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Puts up 15 points with 16 shots

    Bane notched 15 points (5-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 37 minutes during Friday's 125-85 loss to the Lakers in Game 6 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Similar to several Memphis starters, Bane struggled in a game where the team needed him badly. In fact, this 15-point outing was his worst performance of the series, which was particularly surprising since he posted back-to-back 30-plus-point games in the past two outings. Bane averaged 23.5 points per game in the series.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Reaches 30 points again in victory

    Bane posted 33 points (12-21 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 10 rebounds and five assists over 43 minutes during Wednesday's 116-99 victory over the Lakers in Game 5 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Bane led the Grizzlies in scoring and threes made while posting a team-high-tying rebound total in a double-double showing Wednesday. Bane has tallied 30 or more points in two straight postseason appearances, and Wednesday he hauled in at least 10 boards for the first time in the playoffs.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Pours in team-high 36 points

    Bane chipped in 36 points (13-29 FG, 3-12 3Pt, 7-7 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and one steal over 47 minutes during Monday's 117-111 overtime loss to the Lakers in Game 4 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Bane stepped up his offensive game Monday, doing all he could to get the Grizzlies over the line. However, they fell short of the mark, leaving themselves in a 3-1 hole with the series now heading back to Memphis. If the Grizzlies hope to come back, Bane will need to continue to do some heavy lifting on the offensive end with Ja Morant still dealing with a wrist injury.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Struggles from deep in loss

    Bane produced 22 points (6-18 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 7-7 FT), five rebounds and six assists across 37 minutes during Sunday's 128-112 loss to the Lakers in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Bane finished second on the team in scoring behind Jaren Jackson (31), but he struggled to find any offensive rhythm and was inefficient from the field. If Ja Morant (wrist) has to miss any time, Bane would presumably be asked to step up as Memphis' go-to playmaker.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Clears injury report

    Bane (knee) will play in Game 1 of the Western Conference First Round versus the Lakers on Sunday.

    Bane was one of several Grizzlies rotation players to sit out the regular-season finale but is good to go for their playoff opener. He should be expected to retake his spot in the starting lineup and handle a full workload Sunday. In three games against the Lakers this season, Bane averaged 13.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.7 steals over 32.7 minutes.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Out of season finale

    Bane (knee) is out of Sunday's game against the Thunder.

    Bane is among several starters that won't see action Sunday, as the Grizzlies decided to rest their entire first unit in a meaningless regular-season game. Bane ends the campaign averaging a career-high 21.5 points and 5.0 rebounds per game across 58 games, all as a starter.
