Memphis resting Ja Morant in meaningless matchup Friday

Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant will be rested Friday against the Sacramento Kings.

What It Means:

The Grizzlies are resting all of their starters on Friday because the game doesn't have any impact on their position in the standings. Tyus Jones will likely start at point guard in place of Morant and play as many minutes as he can handle. De'Anthony Melton and Desmond Bane also figure to see larger usage rates.

Jones is numberFire's fifth-best overall point-per-dollar value on Friday's eight-game slate. He has a $4,200 salary and is projected for 31.6 FanDuel points.
