Wright (groin) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers.

EDGE Analysis

Wright suffered a groin injury in the second quarter of Saturday's game and was unable to return. The Grizzlies haven't issued any sort of update on the severity, though with the team heading into the second night of a back-to-back, Wright will understandably remain on the sidelines. His next opportunity to play will be Wednesday against the Mavericks, though in the meantime, Jarell Martin could pick up more minutes as a reserve in the frontcourt.

Wright scored 13 points (4-7 FG, 5-6 FT) to go along with nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and four blocks over 25 minutes in Saturday's 113-104 win against the Clippers.

EDGE Analysis

Wright collected a team-high nine rebounds while coming off of the bench on Saturday. The Memphis center also amassed season-highs in points (13) and blocks (4) to round out an all-around impressive performance against the Clippers. Wright will look to prove that this excellent stat night was no fluke when the Grizzlies face the Lakers on Sunday.

Wright had two points (1-1 FG), four rebounds, and one steal in 11 minutes during Saturday's 111-101 win over the Warriors.

EDGE Analysis

After posting 10 points and four boards in 27 minutes during Wednesday's regular season opener versus the Pelicans, Wright saw his playing time evaporate on Saturday despite the absence of starter JaMychal Green (ankle). Wright is still a threat to see 20-plus minutes against teams like the Pelicans that pair two traditional big men together, especially while Green remains sidelined for the next few weeks. Nevertheless, Wright is merely one of Marc Gasol's backups against clubs that primarily play small ball.

Wright recorded 16 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 20 minutes during Wednesday's 110-89 victory over the 76ers.

EDGE Analysis

Wright is set to be Marc Gasol's backup once again this season, but demonstrated Wednesday that he's capable of holding his own in a starting five. While he's a fringe fantasy option, he can make for an intriguing DFS play when or if Gasol suffers an injury.

Wright will start at center for Monday's preseason opener against the Magic.

EDGE Analysis

Marc Gasol is dealing with an ankle injury and will sit out Monday's contest, which allows Wright to take over as the starting center. While Wright could pick up multiple starts throughout the preseason, Gasol's injury isn't expected to linger into the regular season, so Wright should open up the 2017-18 campaign as the team's backup center. That will likely limit his fantasy impact to just the deepest of leagues.

Wright will return to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

EDGE Analysis

Wright has started at center the last three games in place of the ailing Marc Gasol (foot), posting averages of 12.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.7 blocks across 27.7 minutes. With both Gasol and JaMychal Green (shoulder) back with the top unit, Wright heads to the bench and figures to see a significant drop in value moving forward as he could see his minutes fall all the way into the mid-to-low teens.

Wright is listed as the starting center for Wednesday's matchup against the Pacers.

EDGE Analysis

Wright is filling in for Marc Gasol who will be sidelined for Wednesday's game. It will mark Gasol's third consecutive absence, but the first time Wright has started for him. Zach Randolph started the previous two at center, but will return to a reserve role in favor of Wright. Although he is starting, expect Wright to just see a slightly heavier workload in total than he is accustomed to.

Wright compiled 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and one assist over 13 minutes in Saturday's 107-90 loss to the Hawks.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran big man didn't let a move back to the second unit prevent him from another solid outing, his third straight with 66.7 percent shooting. Wright had started at power forward in the previous two games, but he gave way to JaMychal Green on Saturday. However, his allotment of minutes wasn't too far off the 18-and-15-minute tallies he'd seen during that pair of contests, so he remains a viable option for those in deep formats in need for some scoring and rebounding help at this stage of the season.

Wright will come off the bench in Saturday's game against the Hawks, Grizzlies sideline reporter Rob Fischer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wright has started the last two games at power forward, but still never less than 20 minutes in each of the outings. The Grizzlies, in desperate need of a win, will go back to former starter JaMychal Green at the power forward spot, which will effectively minimize the role Wright will play in Saturday's contest.
