Gorgui Dieng starting for Memphis on Saturday in place of injured Brandon Clarke

Memphis Grizzlies forward/center Gorgui Dieng will play on Saturday in the team's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

What It Means:

Usual starter Brandon Clarke has been ruled out due to a calf injury, leaving a hole in the starting five. That spot will be filled by Dieng on Saturday, getting the start against Zion Williamson and Co.

In 14 games this season, Dieng has averaged 9.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 22.0 FanDuel points.
