It’s not easy for the Memphis Grizzlies to build their own in the playoffs.
According to ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnalowski, Memphis’ ‘Big Kiwi’ Stephen Adams (center, 211cm, 120kg) said it was not easy to come back.
Adams is sidelined by a right knee injury sustained during the season. Having been injured in late January, he was expected to return at least in late February or early March. However, his return was delayed as he agreed to have a reexamination four weeks later in early March. This made it uncertain whether he would be able to return at the end of the regular season.
Memphis also did well in the long absence of Adams. The atmosphere in the team subsided greatly as ace Ja Morant committed a very unnecessary act in response to Adams’ injury. Even Brandon Clark, who has contributed from the bench, ended this season with an injury, making it difficult to maintain power. Nevertheless, Memphis secured a spot in the playoffs this season by securing second place in the Western Conference.
Although Adams’ recovery was disrupted, Memphis hoped to maintain the inside power in time for the playoffs. However, the red light was put on Memphis’ playoff preparations as Adams was left with no room to play. Originally, I hoped to reorganize the line with the return of the main center. However, with Adams possibly not being able to play, at least early in the playoffs, his existing power usage could be difficult.
With Adams out, Memphis put a lot of pressure on Jaren Jackson Jr. Adams was replaced by Xavier Tillman Sr. as the starting pitcher.온라인바카라 As Tilman, who had to sortie from the bench, came out as the starting pitcher, it became difficult to configure the height. Even Clark couldn’t come forward here, so Jackson had to perform more duties than at the beginning of the season.
Memphis coach Taylor Jenkins also mainly used the small lineup after Adams’ injury. Memphis acquired Luke Kennard ahead of the trade deadline. As Kennard came in, the outskirts’ power was breathless. Utilized his existing power. In Clark’s place, Kenneth Lofton Jr. is gaining playing time and taking his place.
