Top John Konchar News

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Unlikely to play Thursday

    Konchar is doubtful for Thursday's game versus the Bucks due to a left quadriceps contusion.

    Konchar played 20 minutes Wednesday night against Houston but will likely miss the second leg of Memphis's back-to-back Thursday. Konchar has started in the Grizzlies' last five outings, so Jordan Goodwin and Ziaire Williams will likely be relied upon to play extended minutes in his potential absence.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Officially ruled out

    Konchar (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Bucks, Jonah Dylan of the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

    Konchar was doubtful for Thursday's matchup due to a quadriceps contusion, so his status isn't particularly surprising. He'll have over a week to rest during the All-Star break before the Grizzlies face the Clippers on Feb. 23.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Top rebounder in near double-double

    Konchar ended with eight points (4-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt), 10 rebounds, two assists, one block and four steals in 35 minutes during Saturday's 115-106 loss to the Hornets.

    Konchar led all players in Saturday's contest in rebounds and steals while ending two points shy of a double-double in an impressive performance in the paint for Memphis. Konchar has now hauled in 10 or more rebounds in four games this season, while he set a new season high in steals in the defeat.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Will play Tuesday

    Konchar (wrist) is active for Tuesday's game against New York.

    Konchar has been cleared for action alongside Santi Aldama, Derrick Rose and Vince Williams, while Jaren Jackson (hip) and Xavier Tillman (knee) have been ruled out. Konchar brings a two-way stabilizing presence to the Grizzlies' ballhandling rotation and will start over Luke Kennard.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Listed as questionable

    Konchar (calf) is questionable for Tuesday's game against New York.

    Konchar has missed two of the last four games due to a calf injury, and his status for Tuesday's contest is up in the air. If the 27-year-old is able to suit up, he should see ample playing time since the Grizzlies remain shorthanded.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Out Sunday

    Konchar (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Celtics.

    Konchar, along with the majority of Memphis' regulars, will be sidelined Sunday. His next chance to suit up will come Tuesday in New York. In Konchar's absence, GG Jackson, Jacob Gilyard and David Roddy are candidates for increased playing time.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Nursing bruised calf

    Konchar is questionable for Sunday's game against the Celtics due to a right calf contusion.

    This is a new injury for Konchar, who was previously dealing with a left ankle injury leading up to Thursday's contest. He'll likely need to make it through morning shootaround and pregame warmups to get the green light for Sunday night.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Records season-best rebound total

    Konchar amassed three points (1-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 12 rebounds, five assists and one steal over 28 minutes during Friday's 121-101 loss to the Warriors.

    Konchar missed Memphis' previous contest due to an ankle injury, but he was able to suit up Friday and returned to the starting lineup. The fifth-year guard had a poor shooting night, but he partly made up for that by crashing the boards, leading the team with a season-high 12 rebounds. Konchar has grabbed double-digit boards in three games this season, but he's averaged just 4.7 points in those performances, highlighting the primary reason why he's on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Will play Thursday

    Konchar (ankle) is available to face the Cavaliers on Thursday.

    Konchar was always trending in the right direction following his one-game absence, as he was initially deemed questionable, then upgraded to probable, and ultimately, he's been listed as available. Given the injury crisis affecting Memphis, it wouldn't be surprising if Konchar ends up being in the starting lineup to face Cleveland -- such had been the case in each of Memphis' last six games before he missed the Monday matchup against the Kings.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Probable for Thursday

    Konchar (ankle) is expected to be available for Thursday's game against the Cavs, Memphis beat reporter Sharon Brown reports.

    Konchar appears to be on track to return from a one-game absence Thursday evening, which may result in Scotty Pippen Jr. returning to the second unit. Check back closer to tipoff for official word on Konchar's status.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Questionable for Thursday

    Konchar (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's game against Cleveland.

    Konchar was unavailable Monday against the Kings due to a left ankle sprain, and it's unclear whether he'll be able to return following a few days of rest. If he sits out again Thursday, Jacob Gilyard and Scotty Pippen could continue to see increased run for Memphis.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Won't play Monday

    Konchar (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Sacramento.

    Konchar was listed as doubtful leading up to Monday's contest with a left ankle sprain before being downgraded ahead of the game's 8 p.m. ET tipoff. He had been operating as the Grizzlies' makeshift starting point guard over the past six games while the team contends with injuries, but Konchar's absence Monday likely leaves two-way players Jacob Gilyard and Scotty Pippen as the team's primary ballhandlers.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Unlikely to play Monday

    Konchar is doubtful for Monday's game against the Kings due to a left ankle sprain.

    Konchar was emerging as a key rotational piece for a depleted Memphis squad, averaging 6.7 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 2.0 blocks and 0.8 steals in 28.2 minutes over his last six appearances (all starts). However, it looks like he'll join a long list of inactive Grizzlies on Monday, so David Roddy, Jacob Gilyard, Scotty Pippen and GG Jackson are all candidates for increased roles versus Sacramento.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Intriguing performance Friday

    Konchar registered seven points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), one rebound, two assists, two blocks and three steals across 26 minutes during Friday's 107-106 victory over the Magic.

    Konchar played at least 26 minutes for the fifth consecutive game, delivering across a range of categories. Despite scoring double-digit points only once in his past five games, he has added 23 rebounds, 16 assists and 15 combined steals and blocks. He is by no means a must-roster player, but in his current role he can be considered if points are not essential for your team.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Notches first double-double of year

    Konchar provided 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 10 rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 105-96 win over the Heat.

    In his fourth straight game as a starter, Konchar registered his first double-double of the season, with his last coming Nov. 18, 2022 against the Thunder. He's capable to contributing from time to time, and with Memphis missing Marcus Smart (finger), Desmond Bane (ankle) and Ja Morant (shoulder) for a significant amount of time, Konchar should see sustained playing time for the near future.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Five rejections in Monday's win

    Konchar contributed six points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, four assists and five blocks across 28 minutes during Monday's 108-100 victory over the Raptors.

    The 27-year-old guard made a surprising defensive impact as he started his third straight game. Konchar has been pressed into a significant role with Ja Morant (shoulder), Marcus Smart (finger) and Desmond Bane (ankle) all in street clothes, but his per-36 numbers during his career don't suggest that he can be a consistent contributor in blocks, and his lack of scoring limits his fantasy utility even when he does see big minutes.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Joins starting lineup

    Konchar will join the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves, Michael Wallace of the Grizzlies' official site reports.

    The Grizzlies will use their 23rd different lineup of the season. With Konchar joining the first unit, Ziaire Williams will be bumped to the bench. Konchar has two starts under his belt this campaign with averages of 3.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Plays 25 minutes

    Konchar finished Tuesday's 120-103 victory over the Mavericks with four points (1-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and one block over 25 minutes.

    With multiple key contributors out, Konchar played at least 25 minutes for just the sixth time this season. Even when Konchar's held a consistent role, he's struggled to maintain fantasy relevancy, so Ja Morant's season-ending shoulder injury shouldn't make Konchar a must-roster player in standard formats.

  • Grizzlies' John Konchar: Available against Kings

    Konchar (illness) will be available versus the Kings on Sunday, Rob Fischer of Bally Sports Southeast reports.

    Konchar is back from a one-game absence, as he was a late scratch against the Clippers on Friday. With the Grizzlies getting both Luke Kennard and Derrick Rose back in action Sunday, Konchar's competition for minutes just got a lot tougher.
