Fans tune into Memphis games to watch Ja Morant, the dynamic rookie point guard who has led the Grizzlies to the playoff chase in the West (the Grizzlies currently hold down the eighth spot and final playoff slot).
Those same fans often come away saying, “who is that No. 15?”
It’s Brandon Clarke, another Memphis rookie, this one out of Gonzaga. Clarke is averaging 12 points a game shooting 62.3% from the field, and he’s been a solid part of the Memphis rotation.
Now, he’s going to be out a couple of weeks with a thigh bruise.

It’s another tough blow for a Memphis team trying to hang on to the eight seed. The Grizzlies also are without Jaren Jackson Jr. due to a sprained left knee.
