Report: Grizzlies’ Garrett Temple, Omri Casspi had physical altercation

Memphis Grizzlies

Matters got physical in the Memphis Grizzlies’ locker room following a loss to the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday, according to a report.

The Grizzlies lost at home 101-94 to the Detroit Pistons and had an emotional team meeting afterwards, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania. Charania says Garrett Temple and Omri Casspi had a physical altercation during the meeting.

Memphis Flyer’s Grizzlies reporter said on Twitter they had heard about a verbal altercation between Casspi and Joakim Noah.

They also say members of the front office, including the team’s GM, lingered around the arena for an unusual amount of time afterwards.

Once 16-11, the Grizzlies have gone in the wrong direction since mid-December. They’re just 2-8 over their last 10. Temple scored just 7 points on 2/8 shooting on Wednesday. Casspi, Noah and Mike Conley all went scoreless, with Casspi playing just five minutes. Casspi has had problems on other teams in the past.
