MEMPHIS – At the end of the first quarter against the Grizzlies, Juan Toscano-Anderson scored his first points as a member of the Utah Jazz.

The shot was a corner three-pointer off of the catch-and-shoot.

Juan Toscano-Anderson is a career 34.7% shooter from deep. The Jazz as a team shoot 36.3% from three.

Damian Jones, who came to Utah in the same trade as Toscano-Anderson, did not play in the first half against Memphis.

The Jazz are in Memphis to close a four-game road trip before returning home to host the All-Star Weekend in Salt Lake City.

Despite a significant shakeup to the team’s roster at last week’s trade deadline, the team is 2-1 through the first three games of the road swing.

Markkanen Out Against Grizzlies

Markkanen is preparing to start in Sunday night’s All-Star game but is out against the Grizzlies with right knee soreness.

The forward hasn’t missed a game since January 16 and is averaging 25.7 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 1.7 assists over the last 12 games since returning to the floor.

In addition to Sunday’s main event, Markkanen is also set to compete in Saturday night’s Three-Point Shootout.

Since trading Mike Conley, Malik Beasley, and Jarred Vanderbilt a week ago, the Jazz have gone 2-1.

Grizzlies Limping Into All-Star Break

Despite owning the second seed in the West heading into Friday’s All-Star break the Grizzlies have hardly looked like a contender in recent weeks.

Memphis is just 3-9 in its last 12 outings including a 119-109 loss to the league-leading Boston Celtics on Sunday.

The team’s struggles are due in part to the absence of Steven Adams. Adams hasn’t played since suffering a right knee sprain in January.

The Grizzlies are 3-7 in their last 10 games without the veteran center.
