Ja Morant is one of the best point guards in the league, and a lot of people simply enjoy watching him play. Unfortunately, he was sidelined with an injury for the Memphis Grizzlies' Game 4 against the Golden State Warriors.
The team clearly missed their superstar point guard, and they ended up being unable to close out the game and thus losing to the Golden State Warriors, even though the Warriors had a historically poor shooting night. After the game, Ja Morant claimed that it was "one of the worst feelings" for him to watch his team lose without him, but added that he was "proud" of his teammates.
def one of the worst feelings for me but proud of my brothers
There is no doubt that things look bleak for the Memphis Grizzlies currently. They are now down 3-1 to the Golden State Warriors, and it seems unlikely that they will end up coming back in the series, especially if Ja Morant ends up sitting out even longer.
However, there have been teams that have been able to come back from 3-1 down in the past and it is not entirely out of the question. The Memphis Grizzlies will need to keep playing physically in this series and keep up their defense.
Even if they lose this series against the Golden State Warriors, there is a lot to like about the team's future. They have a top-tier young backcourt in Desmond Bane and Ja Morant, and they also have solid defenders in Jaren Jackson Jr. and Dillon Brooks.
The Memphis Grizzlies will have to try and keep being a contender next year in a much more loaded Western Conference. With the Los Angeles Clippers and the Denver Nuggets healthy, it will be much more difficult to be a top seed. However, with Ja Morant at the helm, it is likely that they will be even more powerful in the future, and can be a powerhouse for years to come.
