Ja Morant doubtful for rest of playoffs with bone bruise in knee

Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant will be listed as doubtful for the remainder of the playoffs due to a bone bruise in his right knee, the team announced. The injury occured during the fourth quarter of Game 3 against the Golden State Warriors, when Morant and Jordan Poole collided (and Poole grabbed his knee). 

Morant has been the breakout star of this postseason, and he's been virtually unstoppable in this series against Golden State, averaging 38.3 points, 8.3 assists, 6.7 rebounds, 4.3 threes and 3.0 steals on .518/.451/.797 shooting splits.

The Grizzlies were 20-5 without Morant during the regular season, but losing their best player is obviously a huge blow to their championship hopes.

Morant seems to think that Poole grabbing and pulling his knee "broke the code," as he tweeted (and later deleted) this shortly after he suffered the injury.

Several Grizzlies players and head coach Taylor Jenkins agreed with Morant, while several Warriors players (such as Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson) shot down the notion that Poole intentionally injured Morant.

Game 5 between the Grizzlies and Warriors is Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. ET on TNT. The Warriors are leading the series 3-1.
