Memphis Grizzlies center Steven Adams has entered the NBA’s Health and Safety Protocols.

Adams will miss Friday’s Game 6 against the Minnesota Timberwolves and remain away from the team until he clears protocols.

Additionally, Memphis lists rookie Ziaire Williams as doubtful with knee soreness.

The 6-foot-11 New Zealander has not played his usual minutes in the first-round playoff series, with coach Taylor Jenkins opting to have a smaller lineup on the floor.

Adams averaged 6.9 points and a career-high 10 rebounds in the regular season, his ninth in the NBA.

Williams has played sparingly in the playoffs and averaged 8.1 points and 2.1 rebounds in his first NBA campaign.
