Grizzlies’ season goes from bad to worse with latest news on two starters

    The Grizzlies will continue to be without guards Desmond Bane and Marcus Smart for several more weeks, the team announced in a press release.

    Bane is progressing well from a Grade 3 left ankle sprain he suffered on Jan. 12 game against the Clippers. He is expected to return to play during the next three to five weeks.

    Bane was producing a career year prior to the injury, averaging 24.4 points, 5.3 assists and 4.6 rebounds in 37 games.

    Smart, who suffered a left finger/hand injury during a Jan. 9 game against the Mavericks, will continue to wear a splint for another three weeks. At that time, he will be re-evaluated.

    Acquired from the Celtics during the offseason, Smart is averaging 14.5 points and 4.3 assists in 20 starts with Memphis.

    The injury-ravaged Grizzlies return Friday from the All-Star break with a 20-36 mark, so it wouldn’t be surprising if Smart is eventually shut down.
