The injury bug is still lingering in Memphis.
Another member of the Memphis Grizzlies is dealing with a knee injury. This time, it’s Troy Daniels.
According to Michael Wallace of Grizzlies.com, Daniels underwent an MRI that revealed a grade one MCL sprain. The shooting guard will be unable to play Saturday night when the Grizzlies takes on the Houston Rockets. Wallace also reported that the Memphis shooting guard will be listed as day-to-day moving forward.
An MRI today reveals Grizz SG Troy Daniels has Grade 1 MCL sprain. He's out tonight vs Houston and will be listed day-to-day moving forward.— Michael Wallace (@MyMikeCheck) January 21, 2017
Daniels suffered the injury to his right knee during the first half of last night’s victory against the Sacramento Kings. The good news is that after tonight’s contest against the Rockets, Memphis will play one game in five days, giving the sharpshooter enough time to get treatment on his knee.
Memphis has dealt with injuries to key players — Chandler Parsons, Marc Gasol and Mike Conley in particular — throughout the season, so David Fizdale knows how to adjust his rotation.
With the absence of Daniels, it will be up to players like Vince Carter, James Ennis, and Andrew Harrison to help create spacing on the perimeter and fill the void at shooting guard.
