No fans at FedExForum for Grizzlies, Memphis men's basketball games

No fans will be allowed inside FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee, to watch either the NBA's Grizzlies or the Memphis men's basketball team due to rising COVID-19 cases.

The Grizzlies announced the decision Sunday morning, saying it was consistent with pending recommendations from local health officials. The Grizzlies had been planning to have about 20% capacity inside their arena when their season starts Wednesday with a game against the San Antonio Spurs. Plan holders will get a credit to their account, while single-game ticket buyers will get refunds.

The University of Memphis is emailing fans later Sunday about its refund policy.

Fans also will not be allowed inside the Elma Roane Fieldhouse for the Memphis women's basketball program until further notice.
