Ja Morant is one of the most exciting players in the NBA today. Morant is one of the flashiest young point guards in the league right now and has become an All-Star for the first time this season. But there was a scary moment for Morant during the Grizzlies' game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Ja Morant suffered a pretty gruesome-looking injury during the Grizzlies-Timberwolves game. Morant was very clearly in a lot of pain and even had to be helped to the back. It looked like a devastating injury, one that could derail the momentum he built up throughout the course of this season.
Fans of the Memphis Grizzlies were not the only ones concerned about Morant's health. Morant's daughter was captured on camera reacting to her dad's injury. She seemed very concerned about Morant and audibly noted that he looked better now that he had gotten up and walked to the back. Luckily, Morant's daughter would not have to be worried for too long, as Ja returned to the court later.
Morant was eventually fine, and he even returned to the game. Despite Morant's return to the court, the Minnesota Timberwolves had pretty much sealed their victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. One can wonder why Morant returned to the court, as the game was pretty much lost, and Morant could have used the rest of the game to rest his injury.
The Grizzlies will be hopeful that Morant's injury is not that serious, and he is not putting himself at risk by continuing to play for them. If the injury is that serious, then the Grizzlies should not risk Morant, and keep him rested. If anything, the Grizzlies have shown that they can win without Morant, putting together an impressive winning streak while he was out injured earlier in the season.
