The Memphis Grizzlies will be facing an uphill battle against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday.

Five Grizzlies players - Tony Allen, Courtney Lee, Kosta Koufos, Beno Udrih and Jon Leuer - will be sidelined for tonight's meeting between the top teams in their respective conferences because of a stomach virus.

The virus is bad enough that Lee and Allen had to go to the hospital with dehydration, according to ESPN Memphis' Jon Roser.

The 10-1 Grizzlies enter the contest winners of four straight and are 4-1 on the road, while the 8-2 Raptors are 6-1 at home and are playing the sixth game of a seven-game home stand.
