Grizz prep for Saturday night playoff game

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - Grizzlies fans lined up at FedEx Forum this morning to get their hands on some of the first tickets of the play off season. WMC Action News 5 will have team updates Saturday night including live coverage from the road, ticket sales and parties.

What started out as a routine trip to the first round of the playoffs has turned into anything but, with the Grizzlies now looking at a lineup shuffle off the bench.

Preparing for a Oklahoma City team that beat them three times during the regular season, the Memphis Grizzlies now have the added distraction of reconfiguring their bench. Official word from the NBA is that the Grizzlies will go on in the playoffs without backup point guard nick Calathes, who is suspended for 20 games after testing positive for a banned substance.

Stepping in will be veteran Beno Udrich, who was picked up by the Grizzlies as a free agent in February and has seen action in just 10 games with Memphis.

Beno has the experience, just not with this team. He has played on five NBA teams and won two titles with San Antonio, in 2005 and 2007.

We will have more from Oklahoma City and how this affects the Grizzlies game plan coming up tonight at 6.
