Sam Young, the Grizzlies' most productive bench player last season, picked up his third "DNP Coach's Decision" in the past five games. He also didn't play last Saturday in a loss to the Boston Celtics. Young said he's baffled by his absence in the rotation. "I had a great summer. I had a great preseason. I thought I would come in and help the team," Young said. "It's beyond my control. I'm just working so that I can stay ready when my number is called." Memphis Commercial Appeal
