MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

As several Grizzlies adjusted to their new roles, the team was blown out in their second preseason game by the Atlanta Hawks.

Marc Gasol was flanked by young guns JaMychal Green, James Ennis, Wade Baldwin IV, and D.J. Stephens in the starting lineup, with former starter Zach Randolph coming off the bench.

A pair of Grizzlies out to prove themselves led the way in scoring—rookie Troy Williams led the way with 15 points, and D-League star D.J. Stephens followed with 13 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 steals.

Several Grizzlies got some important minutes as they work their way back from injury. Marc Gasol logged in 15 minutes, and Brandan Wright logged 24. Mike Conley and Chandler Parsons did not hit the floor as they work to recover from their injuries for the regular season.

Memphis now stands at 1-1 in the preseason and will take on Philadelphia in their final preseason game at FedExForum.
