Ja Morant Suffered Knee Injury During Hawks Game

Ja Morant exited Friday’s Grizzlies-Hawks game with a left knee injury and will not return, per the team.

Ja Morant hobbled off the court with 3:12 remaining in the first quarter after what appeared to be a non-contact injury. His right foot came in contact with Hawks forward John Collins, but came up limp after planting his left leg.

Morant laid down in front of the Grizzlies bench where he was briefly attended to and was later helped to the locker room, putting no pressure on his left leg. Minutes later, the Grizzlies announced that he was ruled out for the remainder of the game.

“I think seeing the way that he went off the floor kind of sent shockwaves through the team,” Memphis coach Taylor Jenkins said. “The Hawks played really, really well. We had a lot of looks that didn’t fall. Definitely the mojo was kind of lost.”

The 22-year-old played nine minutes scoring just two points. Morant is eighth in the NBA in scoring with 25.3 points per game.

Said Memphis forward Jaren Jackson Jr. said: “It’s just tough when you see stuff like that. It’s just nothing you want to see in the game.”

After the loss, Morant posted a statement on social media that read: “It’s in God’s hands now. All we can do is pray.”
