Ja Morant Leaves Game 1 Loss With Right Hand Injury, Game 2 Status ‘In Jeopardy’

Ja Morant left the Memphis Grizzlies’ Game 1 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers in the fourth quarter with a right hand injury and did not return.

X-rays were negative, though Taylor Jenkins said that Morant was in “some pain.”

Jenkins also added that Morant’s status for Game 2 was “in jeopardy.”

Morant fell on his hand after charging into Anthony Davis on a drive midway through the quarter.

Morant was already playing with the hand wrapped due to an injury suffered during the last week of the regular season.

Morant returned to the Grizzlies bench but did not re-enter the game. The Grizzlies medical staff is currently evaluating Morant’s hand and wrist.
