Grizzlies' Luke Kennard: Set for multi-week absence
The Grizzlies announced Monday that Kennard (knee) will be re-evaluated in two weeks as he continues to recover from a bone bruise in his left knee.
Kennard has missed Memphis' last two games, and given his timeline to be re-evaluated, he'll now miss the next contests, at a minimum. The absence of Kennard's perimeter shooting will be a tough blow to a beleaguered Memphis offense, as Desmond Bane is already logging a career-high 34.8 minutes per game. The Grizzlies will likely continue to turn to Jacob Gilyard, John Konchar and Ziaire Williams to fill out the minutes at guard and on the wing while Marcus Smart (ankle) and Ja Morant (suspension) are unavailable. Additionally, Santi Aldama could continue to start at small forward as part of ultra-big lineups featuring Jaren Jackson and Bismack Biyombo in the frontcourt.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Luke Kennard: Out again Sunday
Kennard (knee) will not play Sunday against Boston.
Kennard will miss his second consecutive game due to a left knee injury. His next opportunity to suit up will be Wednesday against Houston, but Memphis will be extremely shorthanded without him in the meantime.

Grizzlies' Luke Kennard: Out Saturday
Kennard (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Spurs.
Kennard left Tuesday's game due to a left knee injury and will miss at least one additional contest, though it's possible he remains sidelined for the second half of Memphis' back-to-back set versus Boston on Sunday. Marcus Smart (foot) also joins the Grizzlies' long injury list, but Derrick Rose (knee) could make his first appearance since Oct. 30. Jacob Gilyard, John Konchar, Ziaire Williams and David Roddy are also candidates for increased roles.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Luke Kennard: Deemed day-to-day
Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins said Thursday that Kennard (knee) is considered day-to-day moving forward, Damichael Cole of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Kennard left Tuesday's game versus the Lakers early due to a left knee injury but doesn't appear to be dealing with a long-term issue. If he's unable to suit up against the Spurs on Sunday, Jacob Gilyard should continue to receive extended minutes.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Luke Kennard: Suffers knee injury Tuesday
Kennard is doubtful for the remainder of Tuesday's game versus the Lakers due to left knee soreness. He tallied zero points (0-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt) and three rebounds in six minutes prior to leaving the contest.
With Marcus Smart (ankle) already ruled out for the rest of the night, the Grizzlies will be further shorthanded in the backcourt in the likely event Kennard is unable to return. Kennard will have three days to hopefully move past the injury before the Grizzlies return to action Saturday in San Antonio.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Luke Kennard: Efficient night off the bench
Kennard had 13 points (4-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and two assists over 24 minutes in Sunday's 105-101 win over the Clippers.
Kennard has now scored in double-digits in four straight contests and has played at least 20-plus minutes off the bench since the beginning of November. He'll continue to serve as the first guard off the bench in relief of Marcus Smart and Jacob Gilyard.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Luke Kennard: Scores 13 points off bench
Kennard chipped in 13 points (4-7 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, three assists and one steal across 27 minutes during Wednesday's 108-102 loss to the Heat.
Kennard made his presence felt off the bench once more, scoring in double digits and draining multiple three-point shots for the second game in a row. Given he is deployed as a bench player, his fantasy upside will be exclusively tied to what he can do as a shooter, but even in that scenario, he should be an asset, particularly for managers who need an offensive punch and a boost in three-point numbers in deeper category-based leagues....

Grizzlies' Luke Kennard: Off injury report
Kennard is no longer on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

Grizzlies' Luke Kennard: Will miss at least two games
Kennard (concussion) will miss Friday's home game against Denver and Saturday's contest in Washington, but coach Taylor Jenkins said the shooting guard's absence won't be long term, Chris Herrington of The Daily Memphian reports.
Kennard played 15 minutes in the Grizzlies' regular-season opener Wednesday, but he'll now miss back-to-back games while in the league's concussion protocol. In Kennard's absence, Derrick Rose, Jake LaRavia and John Konchar are candidates for increased roles.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Luke Kennard: Won't play Friday
Kennard has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Nuggets due to the league's concussion protocol.
Kennard played 15 minutes in Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Pelicans and totaled three points, two rebounds and two assists. However, he'll be unavailable for at least one game due to the league's concussion protocol. Given the nature of his absence, it wouldn't be surprising to see him unavailable Saturday against the Wizards as well, although his status for the second half of the back-to-back set hasn't yet been determined. Derrick Rose and John Konchar could see an uptick in playing time Friday.... See More ... See Less

While Kennard was seen at shootaround, it appears that his participation was limited. Kennard is shooting 50 percent from three on 3.2 attempts per game this series, so his potential absence could hurt the Grizzlies' spacing.... See More ... See Less
