Memphis will probably be without forwards Brandon Clarke and Jontay Porter for the first preseason game Saturday night against the Timberwolves in Minnesota. Both players are listed as doubtful; Clarke with groin soreness and Porter with knee soreness. Neither injury is considered to be serious, but the Grizzlies are taking precautions, according to league sources. There is still a possibility Clarke and Porter could play in the preseason.
Hughes’ intangibles are what sell his ability to succeed long term. His career thus far is one marked by overcoming adversity and is a tale that shows how conducive fit and situation is to growth and development. Perhaps the most notable accomplishment of Hughes’ career came off the court, as the kid who had previously logged countless hours in summer school and studying for the SAT just to ensure his eligibility earned his degree in Human Development and Family Sciences this year. He showed the capacity to operate in whatever usage role was asked of him in college. Realistically, his role in the NBA will be much closer to the tertiary one we saw in his first season for Syracuse. In recent years, we have seen players like Pascal Siakam (New Mexico State), Brandon Clarke (San Jose State/Gonzaga), and Derrick White (UC-Colorado Springs/Colorado) take unorthodox paths to be first-round draft picks and ultimately finding NBA success. When all is said and done, do not be surprised if Elijah Hughes’ story has a similar ending.
