    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The Memphis Grizzlies took Mississippi State forward Robert Woodard II with the 40th pick in the NBA draft. Memphis had only one pick entering Wednesday’s draft and there was some indication that the Grizzlies were working on trades for a late-first round selection and/or a pick earlier in the second round. The selection of Woodard, who averaged 11.4 points and 6.5 rebounds, is expected to provide depth on a young Memphis frontline that was dominant last season. The Grizzlies’ first-round spot – the No. 14 overall – went to Boston, the long-awaited payoff for a 2015 trade with the Celtics that sent Jeff Green to the Grizzlies. Memphis’ original second-round pick at No. 44 was...

    NBA : The point guard of the Memphis Grizzlies was elected without possible discussion. Ja Morant unsurprisingly won the rookie title of the 2019-2020 season in the NBA. The Memphis Grizzlies point guard almost took his team to the playoffs by being the leading scorer among the freshmen (17.8 points average) and the best passer (7.3 assists), while turning at 47.7% of shooting success. The former Murray State player received 99 out of 100 votes for the No.1 spot, with the other vote going to whoever was the big favorite for the trophy at the start of the season, Zion Williamson (New Orleans). The Pelicans phenomenon, long injured this season, finally finished third in...

Per an announcement from the league, the 21-year-old has been named Rookie of the Year for 2019-20. While New Orleans Pelicans forward and No. 1 overall selection Zion Williamson was the heavy favorite to capture the award before the campaign began, Morant ultimately won the trophy running away. Memphis’ young floor general snagged 99 first-place votes from a global panel of 100 sportswriters, earning 498 total points in the vote. Meanwhile, Miami Heat guard Kendrick Nunn came in second with 204 and Williamson finished in...

    BOSTON (CBS) –Pick Watching season is over for the Celtics. The team received Memphis’ 2020 selection on Thursday night, after the Grizzlies were awarded the No. 14 overall pick at the NBA Draft lottery. There was a 97.6 percent chance that the Memphis pick would become Boston’s, and that is exactly how it played out Thursday evening. The pick (acquired in a 2015 trade that sent Jeff Green to Memphis) would have become an unprotected selection in a much deeper 2021 draft had the Grizzlies jumped into the top six, but that wishful thinking was dashed early in the process when Memphis the first team announced at the lottery. Boston now owns three picks in the upcoming draft: No. 14...

    The Portland Trail Blazers jumped to the #8 seed in the Western Conference in dramatic fashion. Damian Lillard was a man on a mission when he entered the Bubble. With a nervy-win against the Brooklyn Nets, the Blazers have edged closer towards making the playoffs. The Portland camp went wild after the victory, and we have a few reactions from the players and the coach himself.  The Blazers went 6-2 in the seeding games to complete their quest to make it to the playoffs. Their journey in the bubble started with a win against the Memphis Grizzlies and now the Blazers can make or break their playoff dreams with a mini-tournament, once again Ja Morant and Memphis.  “We’re happy,...
    It’s a win-or-go-home scenario for the Grizzlies as they face the Trail Blazers in the first play-in tournament in NBA history. No. 9 Memphis finished within four games of No. 8 Portland in the Western Conference standings, triggering the play-in tournament ahead of the first round of the 2020 NBA playoffs. The Trail Blazers only need to win one game in order to advance, but the Grizzlies must defeat the Trail Blazers twice if they want to secure the final playoff spot in the West. The big matchup to watch in Saturday’s game is the point guard battle between Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard and Grizzlies rookie Ja Morant. In his past three games, Lillard has averaged a ridiculous...

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Heroics were needed to get Portland and Memphis on the doorstep of the playoffs. For the Trail Blazers, Damian Lillard averaged more than 50 points — with a shot from a step inside midcourt in there as one of his many highlights — to lead the way in three consecutive down-to-the-wire, season-on-the-line victories. For the Grizzlies, Ja Morant and Jonas Valanciunas became the first teammates in Memphis history to post triple-doubles in what turned out to be a must-win game as well. And now, the mission isn’t done yet for either club. Portland and Memphis meet Saturday in Game 1 of the Western Conference play-in series; the Trail Blazers have the upper hand by...

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Jonas Valanciunas and Ja Morant had triple-doubles and the Memphis Grizzlies kept their season alive Thursday with a 119-106 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, who were missing star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo after he was suspended for head-butting an opponent.

    The Memphis Grizzlies and Phoenix Suns won to keep playoff hopes alive. The only NBA playoff spot that’s not currently locked in is the 8-seed in the Western Conference. On Thursday, four key matchups will ultimately decide which two teams will be competing in the league’s play-in game(s), which will pit the current 8-seed against the ninth-place team. The Memphis Grizzlies and Portland Trail Blazers were in control of their own destinies heading into their final seeding games, while the Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs needed wins and some additional help in order to sneak into the play-in scenario. Now that the Grizz and Suns have already wrapped up wins, here’s a look at the updated playoff scenarios. Remember,...

The two teams are currently poles apart when it comes to their standings in their respective Conferences. The Milwaukee Bucks hold the best record in NBA currently. Other than holding the first seed in the Eastern Conference, they are also four games ahead of the Toronto Raptors who are holding the second position.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo’s one-game suspension could have a big impact on the Western Conference playoff picture. After being ejected for a headbutt on Moritz Wagner Tuesday night, Giannis Antetokounmpo has officially been suspended by the NBA for the Milwaukee Bucks‘ final seeding game on Thursday. This one-game suspension may seem inconsequential for a Bucks squad that’s already locked up the 1-seed in the Eastern Conference and has virtually nothing to play for against the Memphis Grizzlies, but the ripple effects could extend much deeper, especially out West. Here’s a look at how Giannis’ suspension could impact Milwaukee, four Western Conference teams fighting for a playoff spot and another Eastern Conference contender.Impact on Milwaukee BucksThe Bucks have nothing to play for on...

    BOSTON (CBS) — The Celtics have a game Tuesday night, though their clash with the Memphis Grizzlies really doesn’t matter much to the players on the roster.

    Photo by Ashley Landis-Pool/Getty Images The Memphis Grizzlies have a slight Dillon Brooks problem so far in the bubble. There’s no way around it: Dillon Brooks has been brutal for the Memphis Grizzlies in their first two seeding games so far. And while two games is an admittedly microscopic sample size, both contests were extremely winnable, and ultimately swung by one lackluster performer. Though the stats column will show he’s averaged an acceptable 15.5 points, 3.5 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game during the NBA’s official restart in Orlando, Brooks has been very inefficient over that span, shooting 6-for-16 in an overtime loss to the Portland Trail Blazers and 7-for-20 in Sunday’s narrow loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

    The Memphis Grizzlies are currently the No. 8 seed in the loaded Western Conference, and a large reason for their success this year is rookie sensation Ja Morant. Taken with the No. 2 overall pick in the NBA Draft, Morant has burst onto the scene.

Whoever manages to lead their team to the playoffs will likely take home the award.

    A few weeks ago, NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced that the league will return. Along with it came a revised schedule of fixtures, with a few teams eliminated for the comeback. After the meticulously prepared structure was announced, only 22 teams made the cut and the Memphis Grizzlies would be thrilled to find their name on the list.
