Morant without fractures, PO 1st round 2nd round participation is uncertain

It is not easy for the Memphis Grizzlies to maintain power in the first gate of the playoffs.

According to reporter Shams Charania of 『The Athletic』, Ja Morant (guard, 191cm, 79kg) of Memphis said that it is unclear whether he will participate in the second leg of the first round of the playoffs.

Morant injured his hand in the first leg of the first round of the playoffs against the Los Angeles Lakers on the 17th (Korean time). He was injured during the match and never returned. Memphis lost 128-112 in Game 1 that day. After Morant was also injured, he suffered a fatal injury as he gave up the game.

Fortunately, it was confirmed that there were no fractures in Morant’s injury. However, he is still not easy to anticipate for the coming second leg. It is predicted that it will not be easy to go on a business trip to the second game in the local area. If Morant can’t play in the second game, Memphis will have to go into the game with a lot of pressure. This is because even Morant is injured even though his power is not perfect.

Memphis held up well even when Morant was missing during the regular season. However, during the season, you can meet other relatively weak teams while taking a break. But in the playoffs, it’s different. Above all, they were overpowered by giving up the first game. It is not easy to guarantee advancing to the next round if they lose even the second game while giving up the home court advantage by already giving up the first game.

Memphis has been plagued by injuries since the beginning of the season. It’s because the players got hurt while taking turns. Since the beginning of the season, Jaren Jackson Jr. has not been able to join, and Desmond Bain has been injured. Jackson returned, but shortly afterwards Adams and Clark were injured. Adams ended up missing a playoff trip. It is difficult to predict when it will return.

Even Morant was injured here. He appeared in 61 games in the regular season. He recorded 26.2 points (.466 .307 .748), 5.9 rebounds, 8.1 assists and 1.1 steals in 31.9 minutes per game. After last season, he averaged more than 26 points for two consecutive seasons. His point average fell slightly, but he averaged the most assists. He was selected as an All-Star for the second year in a row.
