Brandan Wright has not played since the Memphis Grizzlies played on the road in Utah on November 7th. If Chris Vernon's source is correct (it always is) then we won't be seeing him for another couple of months.
According to source, Grizzlies center Brandan Wright is having knee surgery (scope) tomorrow morning. Initial timetable 6-8 weeks.— Chris Vernon (@ChrisVernonShow) December 16, 2015
Well crap. Six weeks would put Wright's return near the end of January. Eight weeks puts the return right around the All-Star break, and it seems like teams almost always hold them out through that respite if anything is questionable regarding the injury and rehab.
Fastbreak Breakfast also raises a good point.
The Grizzlies have only gotten 120 minutes out of Brandan Wright so far. We know the story with Vince Carter. Can I speak with the manager?
