Grizzlies have fifth straight game postponed

Grizzlies have fifth straight game postponed

Wednesday’s game between the Bulls and Grizzlies at FedExForum in Memphis has been postponed due to the NBA’s health and safety’s protocols.

It will be the Grizzlies’ fifth straight game postponed under the policy and sixth overall, matching the Washington Wizards for most in the NBA. The Wizards returned to action on Sunday, their first game in 13 days after six players tested positive for COVID-19 and three others had to miss several days following contact tracing.

The NBA said the game is being postponed due to contact tracing with the Grizzlies and the fact the team will not be able to practice before the scheduled game.

The Grizzlies have no new players entered into the health and safety protocols, a source told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The next scheduled game for the Grizzlies is Saturday in San Antonio against the Spurs.
