Ja Morant’s ultra-worrying post-match video!

Injured in Game 3 against the Warriors, Ja Morant could miss the games due to the injury. He will pass exams, but a video of him is not at all reassuring. You can see the point guard walking out of the room in Golden State, and let’s just say he’s struggling with his knee.

Unplayable in this series against the Warriors, Ja Morant still scored 34 points on defense Saturday night, except his teammates weren’t on the same level. Lots of mistakes, missed shots, and now the Grizzlies are in the water, 112-142. And yet it’s not the worst possible news, as Morant injured his knee during this match, and in a very strange way (See you here).

Has Ja Morant already lost for Game 4?

Sanctions against Jordan Poole? Even if the gesture isn’t voluntary, the NBA is likely to impose a fine in the rear, not a suspension. It feels more uncomfortable for the player, and no one really knows when Ja was injured. What is certain, however, is that the leader is not sure for Game 4. He was seen leaving the room, and that does not bode well for the future.

For now it is impossible to know if Morant will miss the next game, but seeing it like this we can have doubts. Only good news? He doesn’t use crutches, which means he can get around on his own. Some relief for the Grizzlies, who will know more later in the day, or even Monday, after new tests on Ja, but he doesn’t look too good.

After the game, and before the journalists, Jordan Poole justified himself after this gesture. He explains his version of events and assures him: he did not want to hurt Morant:

It’s a simple basketball action. We defended it with two and I wanted to get the ball out. Obviously we don’t want to see anyone get hurt, I’m not that type of player, I respect everyone. I hope he is better and that he is on the court in the next game.

Was Ja Morant the victim of a misplay by Jordan Poole? The answer is clear with the Grizzlies, who will want penalties. At the moment, we are mainly waiting for news from the player, very uncertain for the future. Too bad for the show.
