Top Jaylen Nowell News

  • Grizzlies' Jaylen Nowell: Efficient night off bench

    Nowell had 12 points (6-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four assists and two rebounds across 26 minutes in Wednesday's 116-102 win over the Pistons.

    Nowell returned to the bench for Wednesday's game after starting Saturday against the Suns. He led the reserves in scoring and joined Desmond Bane and Jaren Jackson as the only Grizzlies players to score in double digits. Nowell signed another 10-day contract with Memphis on Sunday and has scored in double digits in two of his last three appearances.

  • Grizzlies' Jaylen Nowell: Returns to bench

    Nowell isn't in the starting five for Wednesday's game versus Detroit.

    Nowell will be replaced by Derrick Rose in the starting lineup Wednesday. Nowell is averaging 5.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 13.8 minutes across his previous four appearances coming off the bench for the Grizzlies this season.

  • Grizzlies' Jaylen Nowell: Gets another 10-day contract

    Nowell agreed Sunday with the Grizzlies on a second 10-day hardship contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Nowell has appeared in five games with the Grizzlies after the league granted Memphis two hardship exceptions to combat the team's injury woes. The 24-year-old has seen his playing time progressively increase over his five contests with Memphis and is averaging 6.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists in 18.6 minutes per game. Nowell's new 10-day deal will keep him under contract for Memphis' next three games, and he could continue to occupy a spot in the rotation until the Grizzlies regain some health or get Ja Morant back from his 25-game suspension to open the season.

  • Grizzlies' Jaylen Nowell: Enters starting lineup

    Nowell will move into the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Suns, Michael Wallace of the Grizzlies' official site reports.

    Derrick Rose (ankle) is sitting out Saturday, but the Grizzlies will roll with Nowell instead of Jacob Gilyard. However, it's more likely that Desmond Bane handles most of the playmaking for the Grizzlies. Nowell made a strong impression on Friday versus the Mavericks, scoring 19 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two three-pointers.

  • Grizzlies' Jaylen Nowell: Drops season-high 19

    Nowell registered 19 points (8-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal over 26 minutes off the bench during Friday's 108-94 win over the Mavericks.

    The Grizzlies got contributions from unusual sources Friday as Desmond Bane was the only starter to score more than six points. Nowell saw his first extended action in four games since joining the team and produced his best offensive performance since he scored 51 combined points over back-to-back contests for Minnesota in February of last season. The 2019 second-round pick has shown he's capable of getting hot for short periods, and with Marcus Smart (foot) and Luke Kennard (knee) both unlikely to be back until next weekend, there could be minutes available for Nowell in the short term.

  • Grizzlies' Jaylen Nowell: Held scoreless in win

    Nowell chipped in zero points (0-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes during Wednesday's 105-91 victory over Utah.

    Nowell's role has increased slightly over his three appearances with the Grizzlies, but he couldn't connect on any field-goal attempts during Wednesday's comfortable win. Over his three appearances with Memphis, he's averaged 1.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in 11.0 minutes per game.

  • Grizzlies' Jaylen Nowell: To ink 10-day hardship with Memphis

    Nowell is expected to sign a 10-day hardship contract with the Grizzlies on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The NBA has granted the injury-riddled Grizzlies two 10-day hardship contract slots -- the team using them on Nowell and Shaquille Harrison. The 2019 second-round pick spent the first four years of his career with the Timberwolves but has been with the G League's Stockton Kings this year. Nowell has flashed offensive upside, but his three-point shot is unstable. Of the two signees, it seems more likely Harrison will see significant action.

  • Kings' Jaylen Nowell: Expected to sign with Sacramento

    Nowell is expected to sign with the Kings on Friday, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    The details of the deal were not disclosed. Last season, his fourth in Minnesota, Nowell averaged career highs in points (10.8), rebounds (2.6) and minutes played (19.3) per game. He'll compete for a depth spot in Sacramento with Davion Mitchell and Chris Duarte.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Not on injury report

    Nowell (knee) is not on the final injury report for Game 3 against the Nuggets on Friday.

    For the third straight game, Nowell will play through a questionable tag. If the first two games of the series are any indication, look for Nowell to see minutes in the teens.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Status in question Friday

    Nowell (knee) is questionable for Game 3 against the Nuggets on Friday.

    Nowell has been hampered by a knee injury that has earned him questionable designations leading up to all three games of the series thus far. That said, he hasn't missed either of the previous two and has averaged 7.0 points and 1.0 assists in 19.0 minutes per game. Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Kyle Anderson will likely see increased minutes off the bench if Nowell cannot go, but it seems likely he will be in uniform again.
