Memphis Grizzlies waive guard Kalin Lucas

Five days after calling him up from their D-League affiliate, the Grizzlies have waived Kalin Lucas.

The Memphis Grizzlies announced on Sunday that they waived guard Kalin Lucasless than a week removed from signing him. In the three games he spent with the Grizzlies, Lucas didn't make a single in-game appearance. He was signed to offer relief as the team's third point guard while starter Mike Conley was nursing an ankle sprain, but Conley never missed any time with the injury and Lucas wasn't needed.

Lucas was previously a member of the Grizzlies' training camp roster, and one of the final cuts before the regular season. He'll likely return to the Grizzlies' D-League affiliate, the Iowa Energy, after being originally called up from Iowa on November 4th.

For the Grizzlies, this trims their roster back down to 14. Rookies Jordan Adams and Jarnell Stokes currently remain in the D-League after playing a preseason game with the Energy over the weekend, while Nick Calathes has another six games remaining on his suspension. Without another roster move, the Grizzlies will have 11 active players against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday.
