Grizzlies suffer major blow losing Steven Adams for the season

It has been a rough NBA offseason for the Memphis Grizzlies, to say the least. The team has been dealing with everything that comes with all the drama surrounding superstar guard Ja Morant. As well as that, they’re now without their starting center for the entire 2023-24 NBA season.

According to ESPN, the Grizzlies won’t have center Steven Adams at their disposal for the entirety of the upcoming season, as he will undergo knee.

Memphis Grizzlies center Steven Adams will not play this season as he needs to undergo surgery on the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, the team announced Sunday.

Adams missed a big bulk of last season and the NBA playoffs that followed, which didn’t help the Grizzlies as they struggled with a big lineup of the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of the postseason. The Grizzlies big man hasn’t played a game since last January. He won’t be seeing a basketball floor anytime soon after this surgery.

Adams has not played a regular-season game for the Grizzlies since suffering the injury in January, and Memphis said Sunday that “non-operative rehabilitation did not resolve ongoing knee instability.”

The Grizzlies said they expected Adams to make a full recovery for the 2024-25 season.

With Adams already done for the year, the Grizzlies will likely be scrambling to find a replacement, as his absence leaves a big void in the paint.

As if losing Morant for the first 25 games wasn’t bad enough, losing Adams will only make things that much tougher for Memphis during the upcoming season.
