Mario Chalmers already is one team removed from the Miami Heat, but the championship connection remains. Because of that, Dwyane Wade said he already has stepped up as a medical advocate for his former backcourt partner. Immediately after learning of the devastating Achilles injury that Chalmers suffered Wednesday while playing for the Memphis Grizzlies, Wade reached out to fellow Marquette product Wesley Matthews to help steer Chalmers through what will come next. A year ago, Matthews was an impending free agent when he tore his Achilles while playing for the Portland Trail Blazers. Matthews not only was able to recover to return this season but also secured a four-year, $70 million contract with the Dallas Mavericks in the 2015 offseason.

Grizzlies waive Mario Chalmers

The Memphis Grizzlies today announced that guard Mario Chalmers will miss the remainder of the 2015/16 season after rupturing his right Achilles tendon in Memphis’ 116-96 loss to the Boston Celtics Wednesday at TD Garden and the Grizzlies subsequently waived Chalmers. “Mario did an incredible job for us since coming to Memphis,” Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace said. “Right from the start, he embraced his change of scenery and endeared himself to his teammates and coaches on the court and the Memphis community off of it.” The injury occurred following a Chalmers shot attempt at just under the seven-minute mark of the third quarter. Chalmers departed the game with 6:57 remaining in the third with the Grizzlies trailing 64-61. “He has been an important part of our success this season, both coming off the bench and when called upon as a starter,” Wallace said. “But with Mario’s season-ending injury and our already depleted roster, it became necessary to free up a roster spot.”
