Jordan Adams and Jarell Martin could both be playing basketball again soon


Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

According to Chris Herrington's column for the week at The Commercial Appeal we might be seeing the Memphis Grizzlies' last two 1st round draft picks actually play basketball soon! Expect to see them in Iowa blue before Beale St. blue, however.

The Energy could be getting more main roster help before the year is out. Rookie first-rounder Jarell Martin is getting closer to taking the court, and while it's unclear if he'll report to Iowa immediately after being cleared for competition, he is expected to debut in Iowa rather than on the main roster. Jordan Adams is also, apparently, getting close to being ready, and while his chance to play for the Grizzlies seems highly probable, he'll likely shake off some rust for the Energy first.

I'll be honest: I haven't watched a single Iowa Energy game so far this season. I feel like that could be changing soon with Martin and Adams getting playing time. Don't forget: you can always watch their games live, for free, on YouTube.
