Insight: He tested positive for Tamoxifen, a drug commonly associated with steroid use. Unless the Grizzlies make it to the finals, we won't be seeing Calathes (4.9 ppg) during this year's postseason.

Description: Memphis guard Nick Calathes had another fantastic game Tuesday against the Wizards, scoring 18 points with seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and a three in 36 minutes.
Insight: Calathes has started the last six games in place of the injured Mike Conley and averaged 15.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.5 threes per game. If Conley doesn't return Wednesday he'll most certainly be back immediately after the All-Star break.

Description: Memphis backup guard Nick Calathes saw the most benefits from the absence of Mike Conley (ankle sprain), playing 40 minutes.
Insight: Calathes should get about four more chances to prove whether his 22-point outing Saturday night was a fluke or for real. Still, when Conley returns he'll go back to playing his 13 minutes per night.

Description: Nick Calathes started at shooting guard for the Grizzlies Saturday night and had 22 points, five rebounds, four threes, three assists and one steal over 40 minutes.
Insight: Tony Allen and Mike Conley were out, leaving Courtney Lee to play the point. Instead of going with Mike Miller or Jamaal Franklin at shooting guard Saturday, Memphis started Calathes and he had the best game of his 35-game career. Calathes came into Saturday averaging 12.6 minutes and 3.0 points per game.
