  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Impressive showing in losing effort

    Bane finished Sunday's 106-103 loss to the Raptors with 26 points (10-17 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, four steals, two rebounds and one block in 33 minutes.

    Though he fell 12 points short of matching his season-high scoring total, Bane might have turned in his best overall fantasy line of the campaign thanks to the immense production in the two defensive categories. After missing two straight games to close out Week 15 due to a sore right knee, Bane proceeded to play in all three of the Grizzlies' Week 16 contests and averaged 22.7 points, 4.0 three-pointers, 2.7 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.3 assists and 0.7 blocks in 30.3 minutes while shooting 52.1 percent from the field.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Good to go Wednesday

    Bane (knee) will take the floor Wednesday against the Trail Blazers.

    Initially labeled questionable, it appears Bane's knee is doing well enough for him to return following a two-game absence. The 2020 first-round pick notched at least 20 points in six of the last seven games prior to his absence and will aim to get back on that path against a Portland club that ranks fifth-worst in the league in defensive efficiency.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Questionable for Wednesday

    Bane (knee) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against Portland.

    The third-year wing has already missed the last two games with soreness in his right knee, so his status will be worth monitoring closely as the Grizz head into a Wednesday/Thursday back-to-back set. Bane, of course, missed significant time earlier this season due to a toe injury, but he returned to action on Dec. 23 and went on to appear in 16 of Memphis' next 18 games prior to this latest two-game absence. Over his last 10 contests (Jan. 8 through Jan. 25), Bane averaged 21.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.1 steals and 3.1 made threes (50.8% 3Pt).

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Won't play Sunday

    Bane (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

    Bane was doubtful ahead of Sunday's game and will officially be forced to miss a second consecutive matchup. However, coach Taylor Jenkins said Sunday that Bane is day-to-day and is expected back at some point this week, Drew Hill of The Daily Memphian reports. Ziaire Williams will likely draw another start Sunday.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Bane (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's matchup against the Pacers.

    Bane is expected to sit out a second straight game due to right knee soreness. Ziaire Williams started in his stead during Friday's loss to the Timberwolves and should be expected to do so again Sunday with John Konchar (concussion) still out.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Out Friday

    Bane (knee) is out Friday against the Timberwolves.

    Bane will miss his first game since Jan. 5, and it comes at an unfortunate time. He's been on a heater over his past 10 contests, averaging 21.6 points on 50/51/83 shooting, 5.2 boards, 5.0 assists and 1.1 steals. In his absence, with John Konchar (concussion) also out, more minutes could be in store for Ziaire Williams, David Roddy and Tyus Jones.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Questionable vs. Wolves

    Bane is questionable for Friday's game against the Timberwolves due to right knee soreness.

    Bane's streak of 10 straight appearances may end Friday. After initially struggling during his return from a toe injury, the guard has picked it up during a recent stretch, averaging 21.6 points on 50/51/83 shooting, 5.2 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.1 steals in 30.8 minutes. If he's out, more minutes may be in store for Dillon Brooks, Ziaire Williams and Tyus Jones.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Paces team with 21 points

    Bane recorded 21 points (9-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt), five assists, four rebounds and one steal across 29 minutes during Monday's 133-100 loss to Sacramento.

    Memphis played without Ja Morant (hamstring) on Monday, making Bane the team's primary offensive weapon. It was somewhat surprising then that Bane took only 13 shots -- below his season average of 16.4 -- but he was efficient with his attempts, making nine buckets and going 3-for-4 from beyond the arc. The third-year guard is averaging a career-best 21.7 points per game on the campaign and has scored over 20 points in five of his past six contests.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Balanced performance Sunday

    Bane contributed 24 points (9-19 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), eight rebounds, six assists and one steal across 34 minutes during Sunday's 112-110 loss to Phoenix.

    Bane continues to look better with each passing game, scoring at least 20 points for the fourth time in his past five games. The points are always going to be there for Bane, but it has been his assist numbers that have been more intriguing of late. He has at least six dimes in three of his previous four contests, a part of his game that is becoming more consistent. He is basically locked in as a top-40 talent ROS, right where he was being drafted.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Stays hot in win

    Bane recorded 25 points (8-17 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 115-114 win over the Cavaliers.

    Bane's 25 points led the Grizzlies on Wednesday, besting backcourt mate Ja Morant by one point. Bane has now hit the 25-point mark in three consecutive games. He is shooting 56 percent from behind the arc and has been perfect from the charity stripe over that stretch.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Nearly perfect from field Monday

    Bane accumulated 28 points (10-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six assists, three rebounds and two steals across 27 minutes during Monday's 136-106 win over the Suns.

    Bane fell one point shy of matching backcourt mate Ja Morant for the team lead in scoring, but the former player was far more efficient with his shooting. The third-year wing out of TCU has been dialed in thus far in January, averaging 21.5 points and 3.5 triples per game while shooting 51.6 percent from the field across six appearances.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Drops 25 points, hits five threes

    Bane provided 25 points (10-19 FG, 5-11 3Pt), eight rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal across 29 minutes during Saturday's 130-112 victory over the Pacers.

    Bane was solid all night, knocking down five of nine field-goal attempts for 12 points in the first half before adding another 13 points after the break on 5-of-10 shooting as the Grizzlies cruised to their ninth consecutive win. The shooting guard added eight boards and also connected on five three-pointers in the contest, which tied Bennedict Mathurin for a game high. He's now shooting 52.9 percent from beyond the arc through five games to start this month.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Hands out nine helpers in victory

    Bane contributed 24 points (8-18 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds, nine assists, one block and two steals over 31 minutes during Sunday's 123-118 victory over Utah.

    Bane assumed more of a facilitation role Sunday, filling some of the void left by a thigh injury to Ja Morant. Not only were the nine assists a season-high for Bane, but the 24 points are also the highest he has scored since returning from a lengthy injury layoff. The Grizzlies play again on Monday, and while Bane appears to be fully healthy, he could very well be given the night off as part of his management plan.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Off injury report

    Bane (toe) is off the injury report for Sunday's game against the Jazz.

    After a one-game absence for right toe injury management, Bane will return. Since initially returning from the injury, he's averaged 15.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 26.3 minutes across six games. He's shot just 36.0 percent from the field and 21.1 percent from deep during this stretch.

  • Grizzlies' Desmond Bane: Won't play Thursday

    Bane has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Magic due to right toe injury management.

    Bane recorded a double-double during Wednesday's win over the Hornets, posting 19 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and a steal in 26 minutes, but he'll be sidelined for the second time in the last three games. Tyus Jones and John Konchar will likely see increased run in the Grizzlies' backcourt.
