Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant is likely to miss the rest of the NBA playoffs.
The Grizzlies announced on Tuesday, as relayed by The Athletic’s Shams Charania, that Morant had suffered a bone bruise during Saturday’s Game 3 and “is doubtful for remainder of the playoffs.”
Fans who tuned in to Saturday’s Game 3 between the Warriors and Grizzlies are still debating whether Golden State’s Jordan Poole deliberately tugged on Morant’s right knee to cause the untimely injury.
Morant was ruled out of Game 4 against the Golden State Warriors after dealing with “right knee soreness.”
The Grizzlies face an elimination game against the Warriors on Wednesday as Golden State leads the series, 3-1.
In April, Morant was named the NBA’s Most Improved Player, as relayed by HoopsWire. He finished his season averaging 27.4 points, 6.7 assists and 5.7 rebounds in 57 appearances.
