Kosta Koufos PF/C MEM 26 Days

Koufos recorded four points (1-2 FG, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 15 minutes during the Grizzlies' 102-101 win versus the Suns on Monday.

Koufos averaged 5.6 points (50.0 FG, 80.0 FT), 5.7 rebounds, 0.4 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.4 blocks in 18 minutes per game during 16 games in the month of January. He's an extremely valuable bench player on one of the best teams in the league, but it will likely take an injury to Marc Gasol for Koufos to become relevant in anything but the very deepest leagues.

Koufos returned to the bench against the Rockets Friday. He scored four points (1-4 FG, 2-2 FT) and added six rebounds, one steal, and one block in 14 minutes.

Koufos was replaced in the starting lineup by Jon Leuer, who was completely ineffective in his 16 minutes of action Friday. The Grizzlies have not yet settled on a replacement for the injured Zach Randolph (knee). Koufos outplayed Leuer Friday, but neither have much fantasy value unless they start to see a larger workload.

Koufos contributed five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes during the Grizzlies' 97-91 loss versus the Jazz on Monday.

Though Koufos earned the start and saw plenty of minutes, his statistical output was underwhelming. Jon Leuer performed well starting for Zach Randolph (sore knee) in Sunday's loss versus the Cavaliers, but Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger elected to go with Koufos versus the Jazz's towering front-court on Monday. The Grizzlies are back in action on Friday versus the Rockets, giving Randolph ample time to rest and recover.

Koufos posted 16 points (8-10 FG), seven rebounds and two blocks in 17 minutes during the Grizzlies' 117-116 3OT win versus the Spurs on Wednesday.

Koufos' performance helped the Grizzlies weather the Spurs' second half storm and pull out a hard fought win against the defending champs. Still, his production is inconsistent at best with limited minutes available behind Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph down low.

Koufos could join the starting lineup versus the Spurs on Friday if Gasol's knee injury forces him to sit out.

Gasol (knee) missed time last year, and Koufos did an admirable job filling in for him. During Gasol's absence last season, Koufos started 22 games, averaging 8.8 points (45.9 FG, 71.4 FT), 8.5 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 1.2 blocks and 0.5 steals in 24 minutes per game. Gasol could very well end up starting versus the Spurs tonight, but if he's unable to play Koufos is the most likely to earn the start at center. Jon Leuer would also be in line for more minutes, but Leuer is more of a four, and the Grizzlies don't have a true third center on the roster at the moment. Therefore, if Gasol is forced to sit Koufos could be forced into heavy minutes versus the Spurs on Friday.

Koufos (illness) returned to the lineup and posted two points (1-2 FG, 2-2 FT) and one rebound in 15 minutes during the Grizzlies' 117-100 win versus the Celtics on Friday.

His performance wasn't anything to write home about, but it was still nice to see Koufos (illness) make his return to the lineup. Still, he likely won't see heavy minutes unless Marc Gasol or Zach Randolph were to suffer an injury.

Koufos (illness) is considered questionable for Friday's game against the Celtics, Rob Fischer of Sports 56 WHBQ in Memphis reports.

All five Grizzlies who missed Wednesday's game with a stomach virus are considered questionable Friday, and an update likely won't come until Friday afternoon. If Koufos cannot play, Marc Gasol will be tasked with another heavy minutes load after playing 41 Wednesday.

Koufos (illness) has been ruled out Wednesday, CBS Sports' James Herbert reports.

Koufos is one of five Grizzlies that will miss Wednesday's game with a stomach virus. Look for Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph to get all the minutes they can handle. Consider Koufos day-to-day.

Koufos (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's game, Sports 56 WHBQ's Rob Fischer reports.

Five Grizzlies are questionable with a stomach virus that has spread through the locker room. With Jon Leuer also ailing, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol could be asked to carry an even bigger load than usual in Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

Koufos recorded 10 points (5-6 FG), six rebounds, one assist, three steals and three blocks in 17 minutes during the Grizzlies' 119-93 win versus the Rockets on Monday.

After a slow start to the season Koufos has started to get things going lately. This was the first time rookie Jarnell Stokes received playing time this season, and with only Jon Leuer and Koufos currently being relied on to play backup minutes behind Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, those two should continue to see ample playing time off the bench. Still, Koufos is likely only worth a look in deep leagues unless Gasol or Randolph suffers an injury, as Koufos thrived when Gasol was forced to miss time last season.
