"Really Good Chance" Ja Morant Could Miss Game 4 Versus Warriors

Memphis Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins said that there is a "really good chance" Ja Morant could miss Game 4 versus the Golden State Warriors on Monday, per Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

The Grizzlies have yet to give specific updates on what Morant's injury really is. 

Morant left midway through the fourth quarter on Saturday after feeling some discomfort in his right knee. He limped his way to the locker as the Grizzlies were being blown out en route to a 142-112 loss in Game 3.

This is certainly concerning news for Grizzlies fans as they could potentially go down 3-1 without their star point guard. Memphis did go 20-5 this season without the 2021-22 Most Improved Player. 

However, the playoffs are a different beast. They will need Morant to win, especially against a championship-caliber team like Golden State.

After the game, Jenkins spoke about Morant's injury and hinted he may have injured the right knee when Warriors guard Jordan Poole yanked on it while trapping him on a double team. 

The All-Star guard also tweeted a video of the play with a caption "broke the code" that he has since deleted.

Jenkins and the Grizzlies doubled down on Sunday that they believe Morant injured his knee on that particular play.

Game 4 tips off at 10pm ET in San Francisco.
