There was hope that Jordan Adams could get the chance to break into the Grizzlies’ guard rotation this season. It hasn’t worked out that way. After an okay Summer League (averaging 16 points a game in Orlando shooting just 34 percent overall and 18.2 percent from three) he had knee surgery that slowed him. Adams hadn’t seen the court for the Grizzlies since the fourth game of the season. His knee was still an issue, but there was hope he could avoid another surgery.

No such luck. The Grizzlies announced that Adams will undergo another knee surgery next week. From the official press release.

Adams (6-5, 209) will undergo a surgical procedure on his right knee on Tuesday, January 12 at the Campbell Clinic, which will be performed by team physician Dr. Fred Azar and Dr. Robert Miller. There currently is no timetable for his return.

This is reported to be a simple scope job to clean things up, meaning a 6-8 week recovery time.

Adams is a guy the fans have called for — they want to see him play. It’s going to be a little while before they do. Hopefully, this summer he can prove he deserves a shot in the Grizzlies’ rotation.
