Seven members of the Memphis Grizzlies 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 have been hit with the virus and are questionable for the Boston game.

Lee and Stokes are new additions to the injury list. The other five players didn't play in a 96-92 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday due to their illnesses.
