Injury: Knee

Injury Status: Expected to be out until at least Jul. 1

UPDATE (Mar. 09):

Adams suffered a right knee sprain on January 22 and has been out of action ever since. In his absence, Xavier Tillman should keep getting the nod to start. Adams will get another opportunity to play this coming Saturday when the team takes on Dallas.

UPDATE (Mar. 07):

Steven Adams (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday’s contest against the Lakers.

The veteran center will miss his 18th game in a row because he is still taking care of a knee injury. Adams’s next chance to play is Thursday, when the Warriors are in town.

UPDATE (Mar. 05):

Adams’ (knee) absence from Sunday’s game against the Clippers has been confirmed.

UPDATE (Feb. 28):

Adams (knee) has recently moved up to 5-on-5 work, according to Grizzlies head coach Taylor Jenkins. However, The Daily Memphian’s Chris Herrington reports that the Grizzlies don’t expect the big man back until after their upcoming four-game road trip.

Adams hasn’t played since Jan. 22 because he sprained his right knee. Based on the coach’s plan, the veteran center will have to sit out at least five more games before he can play again.

UPDATE (Feb. 25):

Adams will not play against the Nuggets on Saturday because he hurt his knee.

Adams is still out because of a PCL sprain he got at the end of January. It’s not clear when he’ll be back on the court, but Tuesday against the Lakers will be his next chance.

In his absence, Brandon Clarke and Xavier Tillman have taken on bigger roles. After Tillman started six straight games for the Grizzlies, Clarke has started the last two games for the team.

UPDATE (Feb. 23):

Adams won’t be able to play against the 76ers on Thursday because of a knee injury, says Chris Herrington of The Daily Memphian.

Adams hasn’t played since late January because he sprained the PCL in his right knee. He won’t play in the Grizzlies’ first game after the All-Star break, either.

Even though coach Taylor Jenkins didn’t say that Adams wouldn’t be able to play on Saturday against the Nuggets, it doesn’t look like the center will be able to come back over the weekend.

UPDATE (Feb. 05):

Adams’ right knee PCL has been sprained, and he will be out of action for three weeks.

The Grizzlies say Adams got hurt in their game against the Suns on Sunday. In the coming weeks, he will most likely undergo another evaluation.

A sore right knee kept the veteran center out of Monday’s game against the Kings, and it will keep him out again on Wednesday. While Adams recovers from his injury, players like Xavier Tillman, Brandon Clarke, and Santi Aldama could see increased playing time in the middle.
