Grizzlies Battling Team-Wide Stomach Virus Entering Game Vs. Celtics

The stomach bug is alive and well in the Memphis Grizzlies’ locker room.

Seven players are questionable for Friday night’s game against the Boston Celtics because of a stomach virus that kept five players, including Tony Allen, out of their game Wednesday night.

The two new players with the bug are Quincy Pondexter and Jarnell Stokes. The Grizzlies were without Beno Udrih, Kosta Koufos, Jon Leuer, Courtney Lee and Allen in their loss against the Toronto Raptors, but they managed to lose by just four points despite missing nearly half of their team.

Now with more players getting sick, the Grizzlies might want to invest in some disinfectants and a large supply of tissue paper rolls. It appeared Friday morning that all the sick players will be a go for the game, but they might want to avoid eating whatever they did that caused all of this, regardless.

The Celtics, for their part, are taking no chances. [tweet https://twitter.com/Marc_DAmico/status/535844160197386240 align=’center’]
