Brandan Wright Out Indefinitely


Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Brandan Wright will be out indefinitely with a MCL sprain, per the team announced today.

Per the Memphis Grizzlies website,

After leaving in the third quarter during Saturday’s game in Phoenix, Grizzlies forward/center Brandan Wright underwent a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which revealed a sprain of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) in his right knee, the team announced today. Wright will be out indefinitely, but no surgery will be required.


"This is an unfortunate development for Brandan and our team," Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace said. "Brandan had been playing his best basketball of the season recently and showing the positive impact he has on our roster. We expect a full recovery and will have further updates when appropriate."

It really is very unfortunate, and it may leave a impact on the Grizzlies success for the rest of the season.  With Marc Gasol out, the team will now have to rely even more on JaMychal Green, Jarell Martin (although I wouldn't count on it), and Chris Andersen, who may get more minutes tonight against his former team that he is years old.  Unless his arms and legs fall off first.


Hey...Anthony Bennett is available? Anyone??? Hello???

If not him, there is always one alternative
