When the Grizzlies face the Hornets on Wednesday, they will be looking for their fourth consecutive victory. The Grizzlies are coming off a 118-108 victory over the Kings, while the Hornets were defeated by the Lakers 121-115.
Cody Martin (Knee) and Kelly Oubre Jr. (Hand) were both injured in this game.
During Monday’s 121-115 loss to the Lakers, Ball had 24 points (9-22 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, six assists, two blocks, and three steals in 38 minutes.
Ball didn’t have his best shooting night, but he made a significant contribution in other areas. The Hornets’ third-year point guard led the team in assists and finished second in scoring, trailing only Terry Rozier’s 27 points. However, Ball’s most notable fantasy contributions came on defense, where he had two blocks and three steals. He has blocked four shots in his last three games after only two in his first 11 games of the season.
The Grizzlies have been playing well over the last week and are riding a three-game winning streak into this game. They’ll try to keep the momentum going by defeating the Hornets, which would be their fourth win in a row and fifth in their last seven games.
Brandon Clarke (Hip) and Desmond Bane (Toe) are both listed as questionable for this game.
Ja Morant had 35 points (13-23 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 8-10 FT), eight rebounds, five assists, one block, and one steal in 33 minutes against the Kings on Sunday.
Morant’s performance was intriguing because he scored 31 points with only one three-pointer, relying on 18 attempts inside the arc and a productive night at the charity stripe. Morant also provided great secondary numbers in the win for fantasy managers.
Both Ja Morant and LaMelo Ball are the most notable players on the two teams in this match, so we anticipate an exciting battle.
