Jonas Valanciunas removed from game due to health and safety protocols

Grizzlies center Jonas Valanciunas was removed from Friday’s game due to health and safety protocols. 

The NBA has already run into some COVID-related issues this season. Players are missing games due to positive tests and for being deemed close contacts.

That is why there was a bit of a scare Friday night when Memphis Grizzlies center Jonas Valanciunas was removed at halftime for health and safety protocols.

Valanciunas removed Friday night

One report states this is not a removal due to a positive COVID test.

That is great news, with the next logical reason being he is a close contact of someone else.

This was a scary report, for obvious reasons, and fans will wait to see what the explanation is for the abrupt exit.

The center had eight points at halftime against the Brooklyn Nets and his absence will loom large for the 2-6 Grizzlies. Hopefully, he is healthy and the Grizzlies won’t be dealing with a quarantine situation of their own.
