Chris Andersen

Update: N/A

Analysis: Andersen played two years with LeBron James in Miami, so it is not a huge surprise to see the 38-year old veteran join him in Cleveland. While he will likely take over the reserve center spot in the rotation left by Timofey Mozgov, he will have a hard time finding consistent minutes in the rotation. Andersen saw just 5.1 minutes per game in Miami last season before being traded to Memphis. He saw a relatively large jump in workload for the Grizzlies; posting 4.6 points, 4.5 rebounds, 0.7 steals, and 0.5 blocks in 18.3 minutes per game.

Jordan Adams

Update: N/A

Analysis: Adams has dealt with recurring issues in his right knee, and he underwent surgery in January, ending his season after playing in only two games. This latest procedure will be the third in less than a calendar year, and he figures to miss extended time throughout the summer. The Grizzlies are yet to release a timetable, but it's possible Adams' absence could extend into fall training camp.

Mike Conley

Update: N/A

Analysis: Conley missed the final month of the regular season and the Grizzlies' first-round playoff series loss to the Spurs with tendinitis in his left Achilles, but after taking the last three months to recuperate, it looks like he's finally healed. While Conley remains one of 26 players remaining on the United States' preliminary roster, he may need at least two of John Wall, Russell Westbrook, Damian Lillard and Kyrie Irving to withdraw from the competition if he hopes to crack the final 12-man roster. If Conley does get the call to Rio, it would mark an especially busy summer for him, as he's set to become an unrestricted free agent in July and should attract interest from several suitors.

Marc Gasol

Update: N/A

Analysis: While Gasol hasn't hit any roadblocks in his recovery, he was always facing long odds to suit up for Spain in the Olympics after undergoing the surgery in late February. Foot injuries are often career-altering or even career-ending setbacks for big men, so it's expected that Gasol will take the cautious route and sit out the Olympics in preparation for camp with the Grizzles in the fall.

Jarell Martin

Update: N/A

Analysis: Martin's rookie season was limited to 27 games due to a pair of surgeries on his left foot, the latter of which came during the playoffs in April. While Martin's most-recent procedure is labeled as more of a follow-up of the first surgery, it's still expected to sideline him for at least a few more weeks, making it doubtful that he'll be back to full health for Summer League play. That said, Martin should be back in game shape by the time training camp kicks off, and may be a candidate to earn more minutes in new coach David Fizdale's frontcourt rotation.

Jordan Adams

Update: N/A

Analysis: Updates on Adams' condition have been rather sparse since he underwent what ultimately proved to be season-ending arthroscopic surgery on the knee in early January. Adams played just two games in 2015-16 -- with none coming after Nov. 2 -- and has appeared in only 32 games total during his two NBA seasons. The 2014 first-round pick's injury issues look as if they could put his career at risk, and at the moment, it appears doubtful that he'll be able to recover in time to play in the Summer League. If that's the case, Adams could be at risk of losing his roster spot heading into the upcoming season.

Jarell Martin

Update: N/A

Analysis: Martin, who required surgery on his left foot shortly after being drafted last summer, recently underwent a second procedure on the foot, something that was apparently planned all along. This latest operation is more of a follow-up surgery, so while it will limit Martin's activity during the offseason, he's still expected to be ready to go for the start of training camp in the fall. Thanks to a slew of injuries to the Grizzlies' big men in the second half of the season, coach Dave Joerger was forced to lean more heavily on the raw Martin than expected, as the rookie ended up appearing in 26 consecutive games -- including two playoff contests -- after Feb. 29, averaging 6.2 points (on 47.1% shooting from the field) and 3.6 rebounds over 16 minutes.

Brandan Wright

Update: N/A

Analysis: Wright underwent arthroscopic right knee surgery in December and only played five games upon returning in February before he was shut down for the rest of the season after suffering an MCL sprain in the same knee. The Grizzlies were initially optimistic that Wright would return to the court after February's injury, but it sounds like the recovery process has dragged on far longer than anticipated. Nonetheless, Wright is still on track to be healthy by the time training camp begins. He's in line to serve as the team's top backup at center behind Marc Gasol (foot).

Chris Andersen

Update: N/A

Analysis: The Birdman brought his typical energy Sunday, as he saw some extra minutes after San Antonio effectively put the game away with a big third quarter. Andersen averaged 7.8 rebounds in 19.8 minutes per game during the series, serving as one of the only available frontcourt options for the Grizz. He will be a free agent this summer, and there has been no indication as to whether or not Memphis intends to bring him back.

Matt Barnes

Update: N/A

Analysis: The veteran chipped in across the board Sunday, but he struggled from downtown as Memphis tried and failed to keep pace with the Spurs in the third quarter. Barnes finishes the series with averages 10.8 points, seven rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.3 steals. He will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and it is unclear at this time whether Memphis intends to retain his services.
