MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Wednesday’s Memphis Grizzlies game against the Trailblazers is postponed.

The NBA announced the game in Portland is postponed because of ongoing contact tracing within the Grizzlies organization.

Memphis does not have the league-required eight available players to proceed with the game.

It’s the first time Memphis’ play has been paused because of contact tracing within its own organization.
