All hands were on deck on a cold Monday night at FedExForum. Every Memphis Grizzlies player not injured put in playing time. And all of this fresh off of yet another player having joined the injured list.
With that painful backdrop and home-losing woes to contend with, the Grizzlies persevered, racking up a much-needed 95-84 win against the 6-16 Orlando Magic.
Before the game, the Grizzlies announced that Quincy Pondexter is out indefinitely with a tarsal navicular stress fracture in his right foot. Pondexter sustained the injury on Saturday (Dec. 7) as Memphis fell to the Golden State Warriors 108-82. He went down in the first half and did not return. Pondexter was in the starting lineup that night, replacing Tony Allen, who was out with a right hip contusion.
