Updated (Feb. 23):

Chris Herrington of The Daily Memphian says that Adams will not be able to play against the 76ers on Thursday because he hurt his knee.

Adams hasn’t played since late January because he tore the PCL in his right knee. He also won’t play for the Grizzlies in their first game back from the All-Star break.

Even though coach Taylor Jenkins didn’t say that Adams wouldn’t be able to play against the Nuggets on Saturday, it doesn’t look like the center will be able to come back over the weekend.

Updated (Feb. 02):

Adams has sprained the PCL in his right knee, so he won’t be able to play for 3 weeks.

The Grizzlies say that Adams got hurt on Sunday when they played the Suns. In the next few weeks, he will likely go through another test.

The veteran center missed Monday’s game against the Kings because his right knee hurt, and it will keep him out again on Wednesday. While Adams heals from his injury, middle players like Xavier Tillman, Brandon Clarke, and Santi Aldama could play more.
