What makes the Memphis Grizzlies the team nobody wants to face in the playoffs is their size up front (and the balance they have with wing players like Rudy Gay).

But they got a scare with one of those big men — Marc Gasol left the Grizzlies game Sunday with 7:02 left in the fourth quarter with what is described as a hyperextended left knee, reports the Commercial Appeal. He did not return to the game and will have an MRI on Monday. Grizzlies fans will keep their fingers crossed until results are released, hoping that he doesn’t man extensive time off.

Memphis went on to  lose the game to New Orleans.

    New Orlean future is suddenly looking bright now. Playing well with Eric Gordon’s return, keeping team with new owner, and the Twolve’s picking getting better and better.
