The Bulls–Grizzlies game on Wednesday night has been postponed in accordance with the NBA’s health and safety protocols, the league announced in a press release.

The postponement is a result of contact tracing within the Grizzlies and the length of time preceding the game during which Memphis will be unable to practice, the release said. This marks the Grizzlies’ fifth-straight postponed game (Wednesday and Friday against Portland, plus Sunday and Monday against Sacramento).

As labeled in our NBA Game Postponement Tracker, this is the 21st game suspended by the NBA this season. The Grizzlies (7-6) currently are sixth in the Western Conference, while the Bulls (7-9) are 10th in the East.
