Grizzlies activate Cardinal off IL

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) – The Memphis Grizzlies activated forward
Brian Cardinal from the injured list prior to Saturday night’s 104-95 win over
the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Cardinal had been on the injured list since November 30 due to a sprained
right ankle. He played 22 minutes and scored four points against the
Timberwolves.

Cardinal signed as a free agent with Memphis after spending last season with
Golden State. The fifth-year pro averaged 6.7 points and 3.4 rebounds in 13
games coming into Saturday’s game.

Forward Ryan Humphrey, also sidelined with a sprained ankle, was placed on the
IL to open a spot on the roster. Center Stromile Swift did not play against
Minnesota due to neck spasms.
