Ja Morant enters NBA health and safety protocols

- by

Ja Morant’s return to the Memphis Grizzlies could be delayed further as the star guard entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols on Wednesday, the team announced. Morant was not present at shootaround this morning. He’s still recovering from a sprained knee and per coach Taylor Jenkins’ timeline of a “couple of weeks”, he wasn’t expected to return for the Grizzlies’ three remaining games this week.

Grizzlies PG Ja Morant has entered the COVID-19 health and safety protocol. Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins said: “He’s feeling well and the thing else to note is that he’s fully vaccinated and recently got his booster not too long ago.” The Mavs play the Grizzlies tonight at 7. – 6:50 PM

Coach Jenkins couldn’t give much of an update on Ja Morant besides the fact that he is in health & safety protocols. Jenkins said Ja is doing well and they are following the league’s guidelines. – 6:26 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
The Grizzlies will miss having @Ja Morant on the sideline with them tonight. Maybe Taylor Jenkins can pick up the vibes by coaching in a tech suit?
“Ja can (convince him),” Jaren Jackson said. “Taylor is just waiting for someone to ask him.” dailymemphian.com/section/sports…3:33 PM

Starting to wonder if this short-term Ja Morant injury ends up being the best thing to happen to the Grizzlies’ future, if only to show them just how good Bane and Jackson can be. – 4:17 PM
