The 2015–16 Memphis Grizzlies season was the 21st season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA).[1] While the team was able to make the postseason, they were affected by several injuries and were swept by the San Antonio Spurs in the first round.

Dave Joerger was fired immediately after the end of the series, hearing of his firing after a tearful press conference.
