Tayshaun Prince SF MEM 12 Days

Prince scored 20 pointes (8-11 FG, 4-4 3Pt) to go along with five rebounds, two assists and one block in 33 minutes during the Grizzlies' 107-101 loss versus the Spurs on Friday.

Prince hadn't played in four of the five games prior, but performed well given the chance on Friday with Tony Allen in foul trouble. Usually Quincy Pondexter receives solid playing time, but it's hard to argue with coach Dave Joerger's decision to stick with Prince on this night. If Prince can start hitting from deep more consistently, he might be able to earn a more regularly demanding role. Still, the veteran is not likely to regain fantasy relevance, and can likely be avoided in all formats.

Prince got the start at small forward Wednesday and responded with 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-4 FT) with three rebounds in 34 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.

A flu bug left the Grizzlies very short-handed for this one, and Prince stepped up with a solid effort and big minutes. Expect him to return to his spot towards the end of the bench once the rest of the roster gets healthier.

Prince received his second DNP-Coach's Decision of the season during the Grizzlies' 102-91 win versus the Suns on Wednesday.

With Courtney Lee (concussion) returning to the lineup and reassuming his starting role, Prince got the night off after filling in admirably as the starter for two straight games. Coach Dave Joerger clearly still values Prince, but he also made it clear during the preseason that he plans to limit the veterans minutes so that he's fresh come playoff time. During Prince's two starts he averaged 8.0 points and 4.0 rebounds in 25 minutes per game, and even if he's thrust into a more prominent role due to injuries, it's hard to envision him becoming a relevant fantasy option outside of the very deepest leagues.

Prince contributed two points (1-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes during the Grizzlies' 71-69 win versus the Hornets on Saturday.

Starting in place of the injured Courtney Lee (concussion), Prince provided his now typically tiring stat line. Lee is not expected to miss too much time, but even if the Grizzlies do get hit hard by injuries Prince will have a hard time regaining relevance in fantasy outside of the very deepest leagues, and can be safely avoided in all formats.

Prince posted six points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound and one assist in 18 minutes during the Grizzlies' 97-89 win versus the Pacers on Friday.

Having received a DNP-CD in the first game of the season, Prince performed well when called upon on Friday, and may be required to play a larger role short-term if Courtney Lee (head) is forced to miss time. It's possible Prince could draw the start at small forward alongside Tony Allen on Saturday versus the Hornets, but regardless of how coach Dave Joerger decides to use Prince he is likely only worth consideration in the very deepest leagues.

Prince will come off the bench and play less minutes this year, 92.9 ESPN in Memphis reports.

Prince is 34 years old, and the team believes it would be foolish to tax his body any more than necessary during the long regular season grind. In regard to Prince's role, Coach Dave Joerger referenced the role Mike Miller played with the Heat during LeBron James' time there, and how Miller only played about 50 regular season games. Thus it's possible Prince could be in line to see similar rest during the regular season in hopes that he still has something to contribute come playoff time. Prince is not the floor-spacing threat that Miller is, but it appears Joerger believes he can still get something out of the unique, aging veteran. Still, Prince's reduced role makes him even less desirable as a fantasy option, and he was already only worth consideration in the deepest leagues last year. Unless serious injuries strike the Grizzlies, it's hard to envision him making a return to relevance in fantasy.

The Grizzlies declined a proposed trade which would have sent Tayshaun Prince and the No. 22 pick to Toronto for John Salmons and the No. 37 pick.

The Grizzlies would have sacrificed a solid pick, which they turned into Jordan Adams, just to dump the remaining $7.7 million on Prince's contract. They're still eager to unload him, but are unlikely to find any takers for their unproductive, overpaid veteran SF. As for Salmons, the Raptors are fully expected to waive him before June 30 -- the final year on his contract is only guaranteed for $1 million.

Tayshaun Prince could be headed to the Raptors as part of a deal that involving draft picks.

The proposed deal would send Prince and his $7.7 million expiring contract to Toronto along with the 22nd pick in Thursday's draft. There is no word as to what the Grizzlies would receive in return, but this trade would give the Raptors the 20th and 22nd pick in the draft and allow them to potentially move up in the draft. Prince averaged 6.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.6 assists with the Grizzlies during the 2013-14 season and doesn't hold much fantasy value for the 2014-15 season no matter where he's playing.

Tayshaun Prince struggled with a lingering migraine during Monday's game, scoring two points in 14 minutes of action.

Tony Allen took over primary defensive duties against Kevin Durant and he fared well, denying KD the ball and staying close to his body when he did have possession. Prince should be ready to go for Game 3 on Thursday.

Tayshaun Prince (illness) practiced on Sunday and is expected to play against the Thunder on Monday.

He missed the second half of Saturday's game due to the illness, but the Grizzlies probably aren't going to play him much in order to give Tony Allen more run. Prince may still be getting over an ankle injury from earlier this month and he's not likely to be much of a factor in this series.
