What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Peter Edmiston @peteredmiston
Grizzlies calling it a left knee injury for Ja Morant, who won’t return tonight. Worst case scenario would be an Achilles, so the fact that it’s not listed as an ankle injury might be a tiny bit of good news. I’m reaching here, to be fair. – 9:00 PM

Michael C. Wright @mikecwright
Hoping that’s just a minor ankle injury for Ja Morant. – 8:57 PM

Michael Scotto @MikeAScotto
Ja Morant left tonight’s game and was helped to the locker room. Morant has been playing at an All-Star level for the Grizzlies ranking eighth in points (25.3), ninth in player efficiency rating (24.9), and 11th in assists (7.1) and steals (1.7) per game. pic.twitter.com/NSZFIwcKhg8:52 PM

Ja Morant gets stepped on right foot, but looks like his injury is to his left leg/ankle/knee. pic.twitter.com/NOZs2HBf9A8:40 PM

Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Ja Morant exits the game with an injury. Hope this isn’t serious. Kings play in Memphis on Sunday.

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Ja Morant’s injury was kind of a weird one. Collins moved over to double him on defense, Ja looked like he stepped on Collins’ foot with his right foot but as he was hopping to his left foot and he seemed to be grabbing his left knee as a result. – 8:35 PM

Peter Edmiston @peteredmiston
Oh no, Ja Morant looked like he twisted his ankle then immediately hobbled off the court and is headed to the locker room. – 8:29 PM

Chris Vernon @ChrisVernonShow
nooooooooooo Ja Morant was just carried to the locker room. – 8:29 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Ja Morant is heading back to the locker room… not entirely sure what happened pic.twitter.com/HXC9apqViI8:28 PM

Peter Edmiston @peteredmiston
Is there a rule prohibiting Ja Morant from doing anything offensively? Never seen the Grizzlies go out of their way to avoid him like they have so far tonight. – 8:26 PM

Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington
Ja Morant setting a high pick for Jaren Jackson Jr. Haven’t seen that much. Jaren got tot eh rim and scored. – 8:16 PM

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Kevin Huerter is getting the first crack at guarding Ja Morant. – 8:13 PM

Ja Morant is not just a basketball player, he’s a performer. It’s why his stardom is skyrocketing.
“I feel like if I was a dancer, I would have that touch like Michael Jackson,” Morant said. “I would be able to just look at somebody and they would faint.” dailymemphian.com/section/sports…9:51 AM
