Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale after a 7-12 start of the 2017-2018 season.
The Grizzlies haven’t had a hot start due to injury to all star guard Mike Conley and the new nucleus of teammates that have been put on the Grizzlies. The team hasn’t had a chance to fully gel together yet with Conley being hurt, Gasol being benched in the 4th quarter, and Parsons on a slow progressing minutes restriction.
Fizdale has had success with this team but the front office isn’t too pleased with the slow start.
Associate head coach JB Bickerstaff will be promoted as Memphis’ interim head coach.
