Ja Morant injures ankle, leaves court in wheelchair in Grizzlies-Nets

It was the worst sight for Memphis Grizzlies fans: Ja Morant hopping off the court without putting any weight on his left ankle.

The NBA's reigning Rookie of the Year leaped to block a shot by the Brooklyn Nets' Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot with 2:43 left in the second quarter Monday night. Morant came down on Luwawu-Cabarrot's foot, turning his ankle, and hobbled off the floor to the baseline.

After being tended to by Grizzlies trainers, Morant was taken to the locker room in a wheelchair. The team announced in the third quarter that Morant was out for the rest of the game due to a left ankle sprain.

Morant had seven points and three assists in 12 minutes before the injury. For a team already down several players due to injuries, losing Morant is another blow to the roster.
