The Memphis Grizzlies are going to be without JaMychal Green for the next four to six weeks. How will they be able to replace him?
There are a few different options the Memphis Grizzlies have to replace the injured JaMychal Green.
For starters, they have the youngster Jaren Jackson Jr. Plus, the Grizzlies have the option to go small-ball with a guy like Chandler Parsons at the four-spot.
This makes it two straight years that JaMychal Green has suffered an injury during the Grizzlies’ home-opener. Last year, Green suffered an ankle injury in the team’s first game of the regular season.
Memphis has many options as to who they will put in the starting lineup. They are not going to ask one guy to fill the void. This will be a team effort to replace JaMychal Green.
The Memphis Grizzlies will likely play a bit more small ball, so it could open up an opportunity for one of these youngsters on the wing to earn a role in the rotation going forward.
