The Grizzlies’ woes have hit absurd levels are somehow hitting even more absurd levels.

The latest player to go down is P.J. Hairston. At least Memphis will add its 18th (!) player.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:

Chris Vernon of 92.9 FM ESPN:

Let’s breakdown the Grizzlies into three groups:


  • Jordan Adams
  • Chris Andersen
  • Vince Carter
  • Mike Conley
  • Marc Gasol
  • P.J. Hairston
  • Zach Randolph
  • Lance Stephenson
  • Brandan Wright

Signed after trade deadline:

  • Ryan Hollins
  • Briante Weber
  • Ray McCallum
  • Alex Stepheson
  • Xavier Mumford

Healthy regulars:

  • Matt Barnes
  • Tony Allen
  • JaMychal Green
  • Jarell Martin

Of course, that last group is smallest.

Yet, Memphis is still fifth in the Western Conference – closer to fourth than sixth (though at least four games from either). The Grizzlies need these players on 10-day contracts actually to contribute. The team’s playoff position depends on it.
