Another Shorthanded Night for Grizzlies when Heat Comes to Town

The Memphis Grizzlies play their final NBA Home Pre-Season game Friday at FedExForum and, once again, it'll be a question of who's healthy and who's not.

  The latest casualty, guard Jr. Harrington..

Harrington caught an elbow to the nose late in Monday's game against Chicago..

He left the game and received 5 stitches that night..

Wednesday, Doctors say Harrington suffered a fracture that'll keep him out Friday against the Heat, and Satruday at Orlando.

He'll be fitted with a mask for the rest of the pre-season.

His absence left Grizzlies with only 8-healthy bodies to finish the game.

The wounded have left more minutes for players like Rookie Alexander Johnson, and Second Year man Hakim Warrick to prove themselves to the coaching staff.

They'll have a tall task against Shaquille O'Neal, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat Friday at FedExForum.
