To a man, Grizzlies players spoke in the locker room about the need to stay together — mainly because the Warriors are so lethal and effective at ripping a team’s collective confidence apart. “We’ll go one or two possessions without scoring, or even when we made a play, they’d come back down and hit a couple 3s,” said Grizzlies shooting guard Courtney Lee, who handled makeshift duty at the point. “They’ll take our two points and then score six. That’s how the numbers keep doubling.”
Allen took part in the Memphis shootaround, but he was told to stay home as he recovers from the aforementioned virus. Quincy Pondexter was also kept out. “I’ve never witnessed anything like that, especially with it hitting that fast,” said Lee of the illness that ripped through the team. “It hit me as soon as I got off the plane in Toronto, and then it started happening one by one. I thought I was the only one that had it, and then Drew (Graham, the trainer) texted me at 3 a.m. that four other people had it. So I had a little company going to the hospital, but I’m glad it’s over with.”

Seven members of the Memphis Grizzlies now are dealing with a stomach virus, and their status is uncertain for Friday’s game with the Boston Celtics. The Grizzlies announced Thursday that guards Tony Allen, Courtney Lee and Beno Udrih, forwards Jon Leuer and Jarnell Stokes, center Kosta Koufos and guard/forward Quincy Pondexter all are ill and are questionable for the Boston game.

A footnote relating to the Boston Celtics-Memphis Grizzlies-Oklahoma City Thunder trade that was completed earlier this week: the Grizzlies didn’t just get shooting guard Courtney Lee and a 2016 second-round pick (via the Celtics), they were also given $1.1 million from the Thunder that must be paid within 30 business days. Considering Memphis dealt the expiring deal of Jerryd Bayless ($3.1 million) for Lee’s contract that has approximately $11 million combined from this season and next, the extra cash should come in handy.

The Memphis Grizzlies acquired guard Courtney Lee and a 2016 second round draft pick from the Boston Celtics in a three-team trade also involving the Oklahoma City Thunder, the team announced today. As part of the deal, Memphis traded guard Jerryd Bayless to Boston and traded a conditional 2017 second round draft pick to Oklahoma City. Oklahoma City also traded forward Ryan Gomes to Boston.
The Celtics reached an agreement that will send Courtney Lee to Memphis in exchange for Grizzlies guard Jerryd Bayless, a league source confirmed to the Globe Sunday. The deal will give the Celtics a young, athletic perimeter player who has torched them in the past while, more importantly, giving the team more financial flexibility, which the organization greatly covets in this new era of rebuilding. A potential trade announcement was expected to come as early as Monday.
