  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Records second triple-double

    Morant contributed 26 points (8-16 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 8-10 FT), 13 rebounds, 11 assists and two steals over 30 minutes during Wednesday's 123-102 win over the Thunder.

    Morant only connected on two of seven shot attempts in the first quarter for six points but added seven boards and two assists to help Memphis get out to an early lead. He finished the first half with 12 points, nine rebounds and four assists before going 4-of-6 for another 14 points in the third quarter alone, matching Shai Gilgeous-Alexander with a game high 26 on the night. Morant also dished out seven dimes in the second half, giving him just his second triple-double of the season.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Off injury report

    Morant (ankle) is off the injury report for Wednesday's matchup against the Thunder, Damichael Cole of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

    Morant returns following a one-game absence that appeared to be rest-related. In his past six games, he's averaged 28.2 points, 8.3 assists, 6.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 33.7 minutes.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Officially out

    Morant (ankle) won't play in Monday's game against Miami.

    Morant was downgraded to doubtful earlier in the day, so this announcement comes as no surprise. With Desmond Bane (toe) and John Konchar (toe) also ruled out, look for Tyus Jones to shoulder another heavy workload in the backcourt.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Unlikely to play Monday

    Morant is doubtful for Monday's game against the Heat due to left ankle soreness.

    Morant was added to the injury report Monday due to the issue. However, when paired with the fact that Jaren Jackson (injury management) and John Konchar (toe) are out and doubtful, respectively, it seems likely that the Grizzlies are giving out a rest day. If this were is the case, Tyus Jones and Kennedy Chandler will likely handle the brunt of the minutes at point guard.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Reaches 30-point threshold

    Morant supplied 33 points (12-23 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 6-8 FT), five rebounds, 10 assists and one steal over 35 minutes during Sunday's 122-112 win over the Pistons.

    Morant shot well from the field in this one, knocking down 52.2 percent of his field goals while also proving his value as a passer. He registered his fifth double-double of the season and dished out 10-plus assists for the third time in his last five matchups.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Triple-double helps edge Knicks

    Morant contributed 27 points (9-20 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 9-11 FT), 14 assists, 10 rebounds and one steal over 35 minutes during Sunday's 127-123 win over the Knicks.

    Morant recorded his first triple-double of the season Sunday, helping the Grizzlies to a narrow win. After averaging 27.4 points per game in 2021-22, the star point guard has somehow raised the bar in 2022-23 (to 28.5 points per game) without sacrificing much efficiency (47.2 percent mark from the field) while also increasing his three-point production (from 1.5 three-pointers per game to 1.8).

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Turns in effective game in return

    Morant (ankle) totaled 34 points (12-21 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 9-15 FT), seven rebounds, six assists and two steals across 34 minutes during Tuesday's 113-109 loss to the Kings.

    Though Morant was labeled as week-to-week after suffering a Grade 1 right ankle sprain in last Friday's win over the Thunder, he missed just one game before gaining clearance to return to the lineup. Poor free-throw shooting aside, Morant looked as strong as ever Tuesday, converting well from the field while pulling down at least seven boards for the fourth straight contest. The point guard has been dominant over the first month-plus of the 2022-23 campaign, averaging 28.9 points, 7.0 assists, 6.3 rebounds, 1.9 three-pointers and 1.1 steals over 15 games.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Active Tuesday

    Morant (ankle) is active for Tuesday's game against the Kings, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    After being originally ruled doubtful then questionable, Morant will return to the lineup despite nursing a Grade 1 ankle sprain that he suffered during the team's win over the Thunder on Friday. Morant will presumably resume his normal starting role versus the Kings, which will move teammate Tyus Jones back to the bench. The former Murray State star has averaged 28.6 points, 7.1 assists and 6.2 rebounds across 14 starts this year.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Upgraded to questionable

    Morant (ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Tuesday's matchup against the Kings.

    Morant was expected to be week-to-week after suffering a Grade 1 ankle sprain Friday against the Thunder. However, after initially being listed as doubtful, the dynamic point guard is now looking like a game-time decision Tuesday. Even if he doesn't return against Sacramento, Morant appears to be well ahead of the initial timetable and should be able to suit up Friday versus the Pelicans or Sunday against the Knicks.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Listed as doubtful

    Morant (ankle) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against Sacramento.

    Morant sustained a Grade 1 ankle sprain Friday against the Thunder and is considered week-to-week, but it's slightly encouraging that he wasn't immediately ruled out for Tuesday's matchup against the Kings. It seems unlikely that he'll be able to take the court Tuesday, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him miss multiple games. However, it appears as though the Grizzlies are evaluating him on a game-by-game basis despite his initial week-to-week designation.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Considered week-to-week

    Morant suffered a Grade 1 ankle sprain in Friday's game versus the Thunder and is being listed as week-to-week.

    Morant's injury is a massive blow for a Grizzlies team that's gotten off to a solid 10-6 start through the first 16 games. Morant is typically the engine that runs the offense, sitting fourth in the league in usage rate (35.1) behind only Joel Embiid, Luka Doncic and Giannis Antetokounmpo. The wording of Charania's report is discouraging, and fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised if Morant misses the next few weeks. In the star guard's absence, Tyus Jones should step in as the starting point guard, while John Konchar and Kennedy Chandler are candidates to see increased minutes and usage.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Requires MRI

    Grizzlies head coach Taylor Jenkins said that Morant would have testing and imaging on his left ankle Saturday after exiting with 3:09 remaining in Friday's 121-110 win over the Thunder, Damichael Cole of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

    Morant finished with 19 points, 11 assists, seven rebounds and one block in 32 minutes before suffering the injury in the fourth quarter and requiring assistance to get to the locker room. Grizzlies teammate Brandon Clarke relayed after the game that Morant was able to walk under his own power in the locker room, but the All-Star point guard looks like he'll face an uphill battle to make it back in the lineup for Sunday's game in Brooklyn even if the MRI brings good news. Tyus Jones would presumably draw the start at point guard Sunday if Morant can't play.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Exits with ankle injury

    Morant exited Friday's 121-110 victory over the Thunder late in the fourth quarter due to a left ankle injury, Damichael Cole of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

    The severity of the injury isn't yet known, but head coach Taylor Jenkins indicated the team will provide an update Saturday when Morant is re-evaluated. The star point guard accumulated 19 points (7-10 FG, 5-7 3PT), 11 assists, seven rebounds and one block across 32 minutes before exiting. With Desmond Bane (toe) already sidelined, the Memphis backcourt would be stretched thin if Morant is forced to miss time. Tyus Jones would be first in line to replace Morant in the starting five.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Near triple-double outing

    Morant (ankle) registered 19 points (5-20 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 9-10 FT), seven rebounds, 11 assists and one block in 32 minutes during Friday's 121-110 win over Oklahoma City.

    The big news from this game was that Morant had to be helped to the locker room after suffering an ankle injurie late in the fourth quarter. Before departing, Morant registered a solid all-around performance while nearing a triple-double against Oklahoma City, finishing three assists shy of a triple-double. Morant has reached double-figures in both points and assists twice this season.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Pours in 36 against Pelicans

    Morant totaled 36 points (13-27 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 8-11 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and three steals over 36 minutes during Tuesday's 113-102 loss to the Pelicans.

    With Desmond Bane (toe) sidelined, Morant stepped up with another big scoring effort, but he didn't get enough help to hold off New Orleans. The fourth-year superstar has scored 30 or more points in seven of 13 games to begin the season, thanks in part to improvement from beyond the arc. Morant's averaging a career-high 40.3 percent on three-point attempts.
