Grizzlies Expect James Ennis Back Soon

Grizzlies forward James Ennis, who has been sidelined for three weeks by a Grade 2 right calf strain, should be ready to play in a few days, tweets Chris Haynes of ESPN.

Ennis was a participant in most of today’s practice and is showing substantial progress. His return may happen as soon as Friday’s game against the Kings, but seems more likely next week (Twitter link).

Memphis signed Ennis over the summer to a two-year, $6MM deal. He had started 13 games for the Grizzlies before suffering the injury last month and was averaging 9.1 points and 5.3 rebounds per night.
