More than a few Mountaineer faithful were looking forward to watch Mountaineer great Jevon Carter go to battle for the Memphis Grizzlies. Unfortunately, there will be a wait for Carter’s NBA debut.
Carter is listed as inactive by the Grizzlies PR on Twitter. Since there can only be 13 players listed as active for tonight’s game against the Pacers, three players were inactive. Carter was one of them.
Jevon Carter, Andrew Harrison, DJ Stephens and Yuta Watanabe are listed as inactive.
