Suffers a knee injury: SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Dillon Brooks was suspended for one game by the Memphis Grizzlies after his flagrant foul-2 resulted in an injury. Taylor Jenkins is now waiting to see how the league reacts after Ja Morant departed Saturday’s game early due to a knee injury.
Morant was hurt midway through the fourth quarter against the Golden State Warriors when his Duffers a knee injury: was seized by Jordan Poole. He hobbled away from the floor and did not return. Morant was assessed after the game, according to Jenkins.
Jordan Poole grabbed his suffers a knee injury
Jenkins said, “We simply watched the replay.” “He was trying for a dribble when Jordan Poole grabbed his suffers a knee injury: and pulled it, which sort of sparked whatever occurred. So I’m going to be really intrigued what happens after that.”
Morant subsequently tweeted a clip of the injury with the caption “broke the code,” a reference to Steve Kerr’s remarks regarding Brooks’ foul in Game 2 that resulted in Gary Payton II’s broken elbow. Morant quickly removed the tweet after that.
Poole said he couldn’t recall the play in issue, but after seeing footage from a reporter’s phone, he shook his head and denied attempting to damage Morant.
“It was a game of basketball. We doubled him, and I struck the ball while running for it “Poole said. “Obviously, you don’t want anybody to be injured. I’m not that kind of player; I respect everyone. Obviously, we hope he improves and that we see him in the next game. That’s not how I play; it’s not my kind of game.”
Morant had a game-high 34 points, but the Grizzlies were defeated 142-112 in Game 3. Game 4 is scheduled for Monday (10 p.m. ET, TNT).
