Big bad news about Ja Morant!
Absent for several games, Ja Morant is not necessarily better, to the chagrin of his team. The leader will be sidelined for some time, as his team has just confirmed. A real blow for Memphis, even if the franchise has proven that it can manage without him, and more than once.
With their record of 51-23, the Grizzlies confirm that they are among the favorites of the Western Conference. On a streak of three straight wins, this roster performs again and again, while Ja Morant is not even there. The latter is the victim of a small health problem, which does not seem to bother his teammates.
This Thursday evening, this collective made the difference again. Steven Adams was everywhere with 6 points, 17 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals and 3 blocks, allowing a 133-103 victory over the Pacers. Desmond Bane was also valuable with his 30 units, to replace Morant’s production.
The Grizzlies collective shines again!
A great victory for Memphis, and very easy. Nevertheless, fans are a little worried about Morant who suffered a knee problem. The medical staff are following this carefully, and have decided to put the young star to rest. A blow for this squad, but necessary for Ja to be healthy for the playoffs.

Ja Morant will be reevaluated in two weeks due to knee pain, as announced by the Grizzlies.
No risk for Morant, especially when it comes to a knee injury. The playoffs are here in a few weeks, and given the Grizzlies’ season, it is better to rest the player to allow him to return to 100%. Given the current level of his teammates, no need to be worried in Tennessee.
Upon his return, and if all goes well, Morant will be ready to jump everywhere to martyrize the opposing circle. He did not hide it: he dreams of posterizing a league star. Decidedly, the number 12 has no limit, but it is rather encouraging for the future.
Ja Morant on a floor? It won’t be for a few weeks, in the best of scenarios. Small break for the leader, before an end to the season which promises to be explosive with the Grizzlies. We can’t wait to see this roster in the playoffs.
