Jonas ValanciunasA was traded from theA Toronto RaptorsA to theA Memphis Grizzliesahead of the trade deadline last Thursday in a deal that sentA Marc GasolA to the Raptors, but Valanciunasa€™ transition to Memphis hasna€™t been easy thus far.

The big man has not yet been cleared to join the Grizzlies, failing to go through practice with his new teammates on Monday due to the fact that he is still awaiting his post-trade immigration clearance,A according to Grizzlies beat writer Michael Wallace.

The good news for Valanciunas is that the process is expected to be finalized either on Monday or at least before Tuesday nighta€™s game against theA San Antonio Spurs.

Valanciunas has been sidelined since mid-December with a thumb injury, but he is expected to play immediately upon joining Memphis.
