MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Grizzlies assistant Barry Hecker has left the team during the Western Conference semifinals for what coach Lionel Hollins says is a "personal matter."

Hollins said after the Monday morning shootaround that Hecker's departure is "nothing that's public consumption."

Hecker was with the Grizzlies for their Game 2 win in Oklahoma City. But he was not with the team in Memphis for Saturday night's 87-81 win that gave the Grizzlies a 2-1 lead. Team officials say only that Hecker is "no longer" with the Grizzlies.

Hecker had been on Hollins' staff in Memphis the past five seasons. Hecker also has worked as a scout, player personnel director and assistant coach for the Clippers and Cavaliers.
