This is where the pick up of Jeff Green may turn out to be very useful.

Grizzlies reserve guard Vince Carter —who left Thursday night’s Memphis win in the second quarter and did not return — has a left foot tendon injury, the team announced Friday. It was confirmed by an MRI. As for his return…

Carter will be re-evaluated within the next week at which time an update will be provided.

The Grizzlies start Courtney Lee and Tony Allen at the two and three, but now they have Jeff Green can come in for either one of them. Green was recently acquired in a trade with Boston.

Carter is averaging 6 points a game in less than 17 minutes a night this season while shooting 33.4 percent. He has looked like Father Time is winning the race this season. That said he had scored in double digits two of the last three games before the injury.
