Joe Mullinax: Jenkins expects Ja Morant to be re-evaluated “in a few weeks”. He acknowledges that whatever timeline is eventually set he usually beats it. They’re going to be cautious however.

That’s it for Coach Jenkins. Time for a pregame poll.
Hypothetically, Ja Morant returns almost a month from today, Dec. 29th, at home against the Lakers. Between tonight and that game Memphis plays 16 games.
Assuming the roster stays the same – how many do the Grizzlies win? – 4:29 PM

More on this storyline

Jason Anderson: The Memphis Grizzlies have officially ruled out Ja Morant (left knee sprain) for Sunday’s game against the Sacramento Kings. Maurice Harkless (knee) is questionable, Harrison Barnes (foot) is doubtful and Richaun Holmes (illness) is out for for the Kings. -via Twitter @JandersonSacBee / November 27, 2021

Drew Hill: Taylor Jenkins did not give a timeline for Ja Morant’s return. I followed up as and if it will be this season (obvious question, just making sure it got asked). He said it absolutely will be this season. He also expects Desmond Bane to be the secondary ball handler now. -via Twitter @DrewHill_DM / November 27, 2021

Adrian Wojnarowski: More testing to come on Ja Morant’s left knee and that’ll give the Grizzlies a clearer sense of the sprain’s severity. Once that’s done, Memphis will know better a timetable on a return. Morant’s had a monster season — and he will be back to complete it. -via Twitter @wojespn / November 27, 2021
