Memphis Grizzlies Rumors
Michael Grange: Chatting w/ @Dillon Brooks who is starting lengthy rehab after tearing ligament on instep along his right big toe. Had surgery a week a go and has been staying with his Mom in Toronto area since. Likely out four months; non-weight bearing for a month.
Omari Sanfoka II: Marc Gasol declined to address the meeting he and Mike Conley had with team owner Robert Pera, calling it “private.” Conley said this: “He came in town and we had a good meeting. That’s all there was to it, nothing special came out of it that’ll change the world or anything.”
Chris Forsberg: Celtics 122, Grizzlies 116 Kyrie Irving flirts with an absurd triple-double (38 points, 11 assists, 7 rebounds). Marcus Smart adds 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting, including 6-of-8 beyond the 3-point arc. Two in a row for Celtics as they head to Atlanta for B2B on Saturday night.
Tom Westerholm: JB Bickerstaff said Jevon Carter has a bunch of “Marcus Smart tendencies.” I asked Carter about the comp: “We both play with a lot of passion. We go out there, we play hard on both ends, we don’t care how we look. We just go out there and play hard.”
