GRIZZLIES PLACE BONZI WELLS ON THE INJURED LIST;
ACTIVATE GUARD ANDRE EMMETT
Memphis, Tennessee — The Memphis Grizzlies today placed guard Bonzi Wells on the injured list with a slightly herniated disc in his back and activated guard Andre Emmett from the injured list.
Through 51 games played, Wells averaged 10.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.27 steals in 22.2 minutes per game. He was shooting 41.7% from the field and a 36.9% from three-point range. In Tuesday’s game against the Warriors, he left the game in the second quarter with back spasms. An MRI on Wednesday at the Campbell Clinic revealed a slightly herniated disc. He is expected to miss two to three weeks to undergo treatment.
Emmett was placed on the injured list on Jan. 25 with a right ankle sprain. Through four games played this season, he is averaging 1.0 points, 0.3 rebounds and 2.0 minutes.
