Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant suffered a serious injury in the match against the Atlanta Hawks.
The Grizzlies suffered a convincing defeat by the Hawks (100: 132), but that worries them the least at this moment. Ja Morant was injured in the first quarter.
He dribbled and entered the racket and there was no contact with the opposing player, he just passed the ball and started limping. Scary injuries are the ones that look like nothing. In the middle of the game, he left the field in pain, so with the help of the professional staff, he went to the locker room, and all the time he had a bandage on his left knee.
Everyone was in shock, and after the game, Morant posted on social media: “Everything is in God’s hands now. All we can do is pray.”
Adrian Vojnarovski said that it was a sprain of the left knee and that the injury was more serious.
