Tayshaun Prince (ankle) returned to the Grizzlies' starting lineup on Sunday, scoring nine points with one 3-pointer, five rebounds, two assists and one block in 21 minutes.

Prince missed three games with his sprained ankle, during which time James Johnson stepped into the starting SF job. Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger has been committed to Prince as a starter all season, though he's provided negligible fantasy value in 26 minutes per game.

Tayshaun Prince was a participant in Sunday's shootaround, and he is officially a game-time decision vs. the Lakers.

Tayshaun is a guy who offers much more to his real life team, than to a fantasy team. If Tayshaun does suit up, he will essentially cancel out the value James Johnson. Check back closer to the tip for official confirmation on Prince's status.

Tayshaun Prince will miss Friday's game against the Sixers with a sprained left ankle.

He's expected to travel over the weekend and could be available for future games, but James Johnson will likely get another start on Friday.

Tayshaun Prince, who missed Sunday's game and Tuesday's practice with a sprained left ankle, is questionable for Wednesday against the Heat.

If he's out again, look for James Johnson to have a decent game against LeBron and company.

Tayshaun Prince, who somehow scored 21 points on Monday, didn't hit a shot or do anything relevant in just 17 minutes of Wednesday's ugly loss to the Nets.

The Grizzlies outscored the Nets 34-16 in the fourth quarter and still lost by nine, so there's not a lot to learn from this game. However, what we already knew was that Prince's 21-point performance on Monday had fluke written all over it. When you toss out Monday's game, Prince has scored a grand total of 21 points in his other four games over his last five. Ignore him.

Tayshaun Prince scored 21 points vs. the Wizards on Monday with six boards, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

He was a little more involved tonight with James Johnson (ankle) not playing and Courtney Lee getting into some early foul trouble. Prince hasn't really had his numbers translate to fantasy in quite some time, so there's really no reason to add him based on a rare productive line.

The Timberwolves are interested in acquiring Tayshaun Prince and a deal could be expanded to adding Tony Allen, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Prince has $7.7 million left on his contract or 2014-15, but the Grizzlies are looking to get some extra defense. The Wolves would likely include Chase Budinger and J.J. Barea to basically make it an offense for defense swap. Nothing is imminent, but the deal seems to make sense at least on the Memphis side considering how they've done very well with Courtney Lee and James Johnson.

Tayshaun Prince finished Wednesday's victory in Orlando with 14 points on 7-of-13 shooting, falling two points shy of his season high.

The veteran SF chipped in five rebounds and one assist. This was only the second time Prince has reached double-figures in the Grizzlies' previous 16 games, and he's already been held scoreless in three February games. Those numbers should scare away even the most optimistic fantasy owners.

The Grizzlies are "known to be ... in search of an upgrade at the small forward spot," according to USA Today's Sam Amick.

Tayshaun Prince is having a lousy season, shooting 38.0 percent from the field with nothing to hang his hat on offensively or defensively, but the mid-season acquisition of James Johnson should ensure that Memphis doesn't make any moves out of desperation. Just file away this tidbit as the trade deadline creeps into view.
