NEW ORLEANS (AP) -Memphis guard Damon Stoudamire missed Friday night's game between the Grizzlies and New Orleans Hornets because of what team officials said was the flu.
Stoudamire had started all of Memphis' previous 18 games, averaging 8.2 points and 4.6 assists, while leading the Grizzlies in field goal percentage (57.1 percent).
Kyle Lowry started in Stoudamre's place.
