Ja Morant News
Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant (knee) is expected to miss a few weeks, according to head coach Taylor Jenkins. The organization announced on Sunday that Morant is dealing with a right knee sprain. Fantasy managers should expect to be without Morant for a few weeks, but it's better than the rest of the season. In the meantime, Tyus Jones and De'Anthony Melton should see more minutes and expanded roles. Kyle Anderson should see more ball handling as well. Melton has struggled at times, but has the highest upside out of the three.
Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant (knee) will be sidelined for an undetermined period of time at this stage after sustaining a sprained left knee in Friday's contest. Head coach Taylor Jenkins confirmed Saturday that Morant would return again this season, but he will officially miss his first game of the year Sunday vs. Sacramento. Tyus Jones and De'Anthony Melton both stand to see increased PG duties without Morant in the mix, with Jones presenting a sound short-term stream option while Memphis reconfigures its rotation. Having averaged 24.1 points, 6.8 assists, 5.6 rebounds, and 1.6 steals across his first 19 contests, Morant was marching toward his first All-Star appearance, an honor that may have to wait depending on his timetable. Check back for relevant updates as they become available.
Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant (knee) will not return to Friday's matchup against the Hawks. Morant injured his left knee during the first quarter and required assistance back to the locker room, where he subsequently was ruled out for the rest of the night. Without a doubt, the team and fantasy managers alike are hoping for the best, although it certainly doesn't look promising. Nonetheless, an update should come soon, but in the meantime, Tyus Jones could be in line for a more prominent role moving ahead.
Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant scored a game-high 28 points as his team defeated the Clippers on Thursday 120-108. He scored 17 third-quarter points and finished with 13-for-21 shooting from the field, sinking two of five shots from deep. Morant delivered five assists with one turnover and had five rebounds and one steal in 31 minutes. The 22-year-old is performing well above expectations this season and has shown off good consistency. The Murray State product will look to shine against Minnesota next in a matchup where he's already had success this season. Morant led all scorers with 33 points in a 125-118 overtime win against the Timberwolves on Nov. 8.
