The Memphis Grizzlies have been banged up for the majority of the season. Already having played without Marc Gasol (MCL sprain), Ed Davis (ankle) and Tony Allen (hip contusion) in their loss to the Golden State Warriors on Saturday, and having lost Zach Randolph for a period of time earlier in the year, the last type of news the 9-10 squad wanted was of another long-term injury. Quincy Pondexter, who left the game in the second quarter due to an apparent foot sprain, will be out for the season due to a stress fracture in his foot, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

 

 

Pondexter, 25, was averaging 6.3 points in his fourth-year in the league. The 6-6 wing player signed a four-year, $14 million extension in October after serving as an extremely effective piece during Memphis’s playoff run last season. The Washington product averaged 8.9 points in 15 playoff appearances while shooting 45 percent from three-point range.
