The Memphis Grizzlies’ next three games have been postponed in accordance with the league’s health and safety protocols, the NBA announced Thursday.

The postponed games are Friday’s contest at the Portland Trail Blazers and home dates on Sunday and Monday with the Sacramento Kings.

The Grizzlies’ game Wednesday night in Portland was previously postponed.
