Quincy Pondexter SF MEM 3 Days

Pondexter returned to the lineup on Sunday after missing Friday's game versus the Celtics, contributing 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and two rebounds in 21 minutes during the Grizzlies' 107-91 win versus the Clippers.

Pondexter had his best game of the season last Monday night versus the Rockets before coming back down to earth on Wednesday versus the Raptors. In 12 games this year he is averaging 4.8 points (31.1 FG, 25.7 3Pt, 73.3 FT), 1.6 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 0.1 steals and 0.2 blocks in 18 minutes per game. Pondexter's defense is what keeps him on the floor, but outside of the deepest leagues he's unlikely to be much of a factor in fantasy.

Pondexter (illness) will be active for Friday's game, although he's not expected to play, Rob Fischer of Sports 56 WHBQ-87.7FM in Memphis reports.

The Grizzlies are obligated to dress a certain amount of players each game and so Pondexter will technically be active for Friday's contest. Although, for all intensive purposes he actually will not play as he continues to battle the team-wide stomach bug.

Pondexter (illness) did not participate in shootaround and is doubtful for Friday's game against Boston, Rob Fischer of Sports56WHBQ-87.7FM reports.

Several of the Grizzlies' main players have been hit with an apparently nasty stomach virus, leaving many players' statuses in question. The illness does not seem to be something that would keep Pondexter out an extended period of time, but it does appear to be severe enough to keep Pondexter out of the lineup Friday. Fantasy players will need to check the status of several Grizzlies going up to game time Friday to see who is suffering from the illness, who is going to play through it, and who is healthy.

Pondexter will get the start at shooting guard Wednesday.

Courtney Lee and Tony Allen will miss Wednesday's game with a stomach virus, so Pondexter should see plenty of run on the wing.

Pondexter posted 13 points (5-14 FG, 3-8 3Pt), three rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes during the Grizzlies' 119-93 win versus the Rockets on Monday.

Pondexter was called upon to replace Tony Allen, who picked up two quick fouls in the first quarter, and Pondexter did a great job covering the Rockets' James Harden. Tayshaun Prince received a DNP-CD, and if Pondexter is able to consistently provide defense and three-point shooting he could start to see a little bit more playing time. However, until he starts earning more minutes on a regular basis he's only worth consideration in the deepest leagues.

Pondexter is averaging 20 minutes on the court over the first six games of the season.

Pondexter has a secure spot in the rotation but is only averaging 3.3 points and 1.7 rebounds this season. When considering that he won't likely see an increase in time on the court, the 26-year-old only seems to be a viable option in the deepest of leagues.

Pondexter is averaging 10.7 points (44.2 FG, 35.0 3Pt, 76.0 FT), 2.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 0.5 steals in 23 minutes per game during six preseason affairs.

Pondexter will begin the regular season coming off the bench with Courtney Lee and Tony Allen occupying the starting wing positions, but Coach Dave Joerger indicated to 92.9 ESPN in Memphis that Tayshaun Prince will see a reduced role in 2014-15. Factor in that Pondexter can cover both wing positions, Vince Carter (ankle) is not expected to be 100 percent to start the season, and rookie Jordan Adams will be eased into action, and Pondexter figures to see solid minutes to start the 2014-15 season. Still, Pondexter's upside may be limited by the Grizzlies' depth at the wing, and that might keep him from gaining much value outside of deeper leagues.

Pondexter (foot) said he is 100 percent healthy, the Grizzly Bear Blues reports.

In his interview Pondexter (foot) even joked that he's in too good of shape, and said that he's trying to improve his playmaking skills in order to continue growing as a player. With Tayshaun Prince likely to keep declining, if Pondexter shows improvement and gets off to a solid start in 2014-15 he could be in line to see decent playing time given that he can already defend and shoot the three. Still, given the depth that the Grizzlies boast at shooting guard and small forward, it may be difficult for him to earn enough minutes and produce the numbers necessary to make him fantasy relevant outside of deeper leagues.

Quincy Pondexter was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his foot and will miss the rest of the season.

The Grizzlies are having some bad luck with the injury bug and continue to lose depth. Pondexter got the start at shooting guard on Saturday with Tony Allen (hip) hurt, so they are really down to just Jerryd Bayless and Nick Calathes for options at the two until Allen gets back. Mike Miller and Jamaal Franklin could also see some time at shooting guard.

Quincy Pondexter started at shooting guard and scored four points with one rebound and one assist in 13 minutes.

The Grizzlies might have wanted to extra length to help combat Golden State's 3-point shooting, but it didn't work at all. Pondexter will likely go back to seeing more DNP-CDs once Tony Allen (hip) returns to the lineup.
