Videos by OutKick

Oh no. Memphis Grizzlies’ emerging superstar Ja Morant has left tonight’s game against the Brooklyn Nets in a wheelchair. After rolling his ankle contesting a shot, he clearly couldn’t put any weight on his left leg.

Here’s a better look at what happened.

Morant attempts to close out on a jump shot from Nets’ forward Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and gets tangled up. No details have been made available yet on the extent of the injury, but that’s a decent sign that contact was made.

Basketball fans are holding their breath for one of the game’s brightest stars.


Huge sigh of relief for Grizzlies’ fans. It’s obviously not ideal to lose a franchise star for any amount of time, but an ankle sprain is usually manageable and considered short term.

Memphis, you can breathe again.
