Report: Grizzlies starting power forward JaMychal Green out several weeks

Memphis Grizzlies v Portland Trail Blazers

PORTLAND, OR - NOVEMBER 5: JaMychal Green #0 of the Memphis Grizzlies loses control of the ball as he drive to the basket on Noah Vonleh #21 of the Portland Trail Blazers during the first quarter of the game at Moda Center on November 5, 2015 in Portland, Oregon.

The Grizzlies are undefeated, having topped another playoff hopeful (Pelicans) in their season-opener.

But things seem tenuous in Memphis.

Not only is Chandler Parsons feuding with Grizzlies fans, JaMychal Green is hurt.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:

The supporting cast looks rickety around Mike Conley and Marc Gasol unless second-rounder Dillon Brooks (19 points on 7-of-13 shooting +17 against New Orleans) keeps humming. And maybe even still then.

Green’s injury opens the door for bigger roles for Jarell Martin and maybe Parsons (gulp).

At least Green locked in his guaranteed money. This shows why he couldn’t afford to risk taking the qualifying offer.
