Brandon Clarke’s Achilles injury ends his season for the Grizzlies

NBA ARTICLES » Brandon Clarke’s Achilles injury ends his season for the Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies have been having a hard time as of late due to various issues. In addition to the bans handed down to Ja Morant and Dillon Brooks, the Grizzlies lost their big man Brandon Clarke for the remainder of the 2022-23 NBA season due to a lower-body ailment.

On the other hand, Brandon Clarke is in a good mood and has a positive outlook, believing that he will continue to recover well from his injuries.

“thank you, everyone, for the love and support.”

I’ll come back, and I’ll be stronger this time.” According to Brandon Clarke’s Instagram Stories, he stated.

Despite this, the Grizzlies will be severely hindered by the absence of Clarke. Clarke was a high-impact player for the Memphis Grizzlies before his injury against the Denver Nuggets last Friday, which was ultimately determined to be a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee. He was shooting 65.6 percent from the field, averaging 10.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, and only playing 19.5 minutes per game on average.

The Grizzlies’ frontcourt just got much weaker as it was announced that Brandon Clarke would not play again this season. They are still missing Steven Adams, who has not participated in any games since January due to a damaged right posterior cruciate ligament. Even if Adams finally makes it back to the active roster for the Grizzlies, Santi Aldama and Xavier Tillman will probably see an increase in the amount of playing time they get. In the power forward position, Jaren Jackson Jr. is also anticipated to shoulder a greater burden than usual.

Because the Grizzlies will probably participate in the NBA Playoffs, there is still a lot of time before the playoffs to figure out the best frontcourt rotation.

The Memphis Grizzlies have a record of 38-24, with them in second place in the Western Conference.
