Though the Memphis Grizzlies may have missed out on the postseason for the first time in four years after finishing with a putrid record of 27-55, there are still plenty of ways for fans to enjoy tuning into the ongoing festivities.

Considering their team is already in Cancun, understandably, Grind City nation may be reluctant to watch the 2024 NBA Playoffs. However, currently participating in the big dance are several former members of the Grizzlies, many of whom established themselves as fan favorites during their tenure with the franchise.

Former Memphis Grizzlies players who are showing out in postseason

Of the bunch, there are a couple of ex-Memphis players who are shining bright for their new teams as they gun for this year's Larry O'Brien Trophy, while one, in particular, may have a chance at breaking onto the scene based on recent circumstances.

For those open to watching some playoff basketball though have struggled to find the motivation to do so, perhaps tuning in and checking out these former Grizzlies studs could be a way to garner interest.

Kyle Anderson

Kyle Anderson spent four solid campaigns suiting up for the Grizzlies from 2018 through 2022 before departing two offseasons ago for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Though it has been a rather up-and-down two-year stint out in the Twin Cities thus far, as he's gone from a consistent starter to a second-unit role player, during this year's postseason the veteran is proving himself to be a standout leader and an all-around difference-maker for this surging T-Wolves team.

After recording a DNP in Game 2 of their first-round matchup against the Phoenix Suns, Anderson has progressively seen his usage increase with every passing contest and, in turn, his productivity has followed suit.

Most recently, the 30-year-old found himself logging an impressive Game 2 performance against the Denver Nuggets on Monday night where he stuffed the stat sheet with 6 points, 9 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals, and a block while finishing with a +13 plus-minus rating on the night.

The Timberwolves are currently 6-0 in this year's postseason and, while it has been a team effort that has led them to such successes, with every passing game Kyle Anderson is showing why he was so coveted during the summer of 2022 and is reminding Grizzlies fans of how impactful and well-rounded his game can be when locked in.
