It appears like Memphis’ Jonas Valanciunas won’t notch another preseason appearance this year.
The Grizzlies center has been shut down for the remainder of the preseason after struggling with foot soreness, according to The Athletic. Memphis is hopeful he can play in its season opener though, as there is no structural damage.
The big man averaged 19.9 points and 10.7 rebounds in 19 games with the Grizzlies last year after being traded by the Raptors.
Memphis then signed Valanciunas to a three-year, $45 million deal this summer to fortify a frontcourt that will be headlined by him and sophomore standout Jaren Jackson.
