Ja Morant Exits Game 1 Versus Lakers After Scary Fall

Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant had a scary fall in the fourth quarter of Game 1 against the Los Angeles Lakers and immediately exited the game. He grabbed his hand and went straight back to the locker room.

Morant's absence ended up costing the Grizzlies the game as they fell to the Lakers in Game 1, 128-112.

The Grizzlies guard left the game with Memphis down four with 5:48 remaining in the fourth.

Morant ended his night with 18 points, six rebounds, and two assists. 

The Grizzlies have yet to give an official diagnozis on the 23-year-old's status. He was present on the bench following the injury, but did not return to the game.

The good news is that Morant's X-rays were reportedly negative.

Stay tuned for more updates.
