Steven Adams has missed the Memphis Grizzlies last 17 games with a sprained right knee. However, Adams has ramped up to 5-on-5 work and should return to the Grizzlies lineup soon, per head coach Taylor Jenkins.
Memphis has gone 7-10 without their veteran big man in the lineup since late-January. The Grizzlies are also shorthanded in the frontcourt, with Brandon Clarke out for the season following a torn Achilles.
Adams has started all 42 games he’s played this season. In his 10th season, Adams is averaging a career-high 11.5 rebounds, including a league-leading 5.1 offensive rebounds per game.
