Morant suffered the injury Friday vs. the Hawks, and the Grizzlies feared the worst. But an MRI revealed a left knee sprain. Morant was using a crutch as he greeted the Grizzlies’ starters prior to their game Sunday.

Morant, 22, is 6-foot-3 and is averaging 24.1 points, 6.8 assists and 5.6 rebounds, shooting 48 percent from the field, in 19 games.
“Memphis will still be without its best player for several games, meaning guards Tyus Jones and De’Anthony Melton will likely see increased minutes,” wrote JD Shaw of Hoops Rumors, noting that Jones got the start on Sunday.
