Darrell Arthur will be out for approximately four months, the Grizzlies announced this afternoon:

DARRELL ARTHUR UNDERGOES SURGERY TO REPAIR
PARTIALLY TORN RIGHT PECTORALIS MUSCLE

Memphis, Tennessee — Memphis Grizzlies forward Darrell Arthur underwent surgery Friday afternoon to repair a partially torn right pectoralis muscle and will miss up to four months, the team announced today. The surgery was performed by Grizzlies Team Physician Dr. Fred Azar at the Memphis Campbell Clinic in Germantown

Quick reaction: This will accelerate what I already thought was inevitable — DeMarre Carroll getting major minutes at the power forward slot as well as behind Rudy Gay at the three. This could also open up some consistent spot minutes for Steven Hunter, who can play both interior spots and has shown in the preseason that he's still capable of contributing. What you could see is Carroll and Hunter splitting the minutes behind Zach Randolph depending on defensive match-ups, with Carroll getting the call against perimeter-oriented fours and Hunter getting the call against purer post players.

The Grizzlies roster currently stands at 15, but the team still has one or two roster spots to play with (Trey Gilder is non-guaranteed and Marko Jaric is a buyout candidate) and might be wise to look for a cheap free-agent forward as teams continue to make cuts to get down to their final rosters.
