Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant is doubtful to return during the playoffs, as an MRI revealed a bone bruise in his right knee, the team announced on Tuesday. Morant injured his knee in the second half of Saturday’s Game 3 loss to the Golden State Warriors and did not play in Game 4.
Memphis coach Taylor Jenkins said that the injury occurred when Warriors guard Jordan Poole yanked on Morant’s knee when seemingly swiping for the ball. The moment came with 6:19 remaining in the fourth quarter, and Morant was removed from the game then.
