The homepage of the Memphis Grizzlies Club has just updated very unfortunate information about Ja Morant, the number 1 star of the “Bears” who has only been playing again for less than a month.
Due to a complicated injury to his right shoulder, Ja Morant will have to have surgery and say goodbye to the rest of the NBA Regular Season 2023-24.
Reputable journalist Shams Charania added that the Memphis star suffered a torn meniscus and a sub-dislocation of his shoulder joint, leading to constant pain and discomfort for many days.
After a thorough examination and expert opinions, the parties decided to put Ja Morant on the operating table for complete treatment. This is the second injury that forced the Grizzlies to miss the rest of the season, previously striker Steven Adams
The Memphis Grizzlies said that if no incidents occur, the player born in 1999 will fully recover in the summer and be ready to play in the 2024-25 season.
Ja Morant has only played 9 matches this season but every time he plays, he has extremely high quality stats. The player born in 1999 averaged 25.1 points with 8.1 assists and 5.6 rebounds per game.
This is quite a high statistic for a player who just re-appeared after a 25-match suspension. Not only that, Morant also helped the Memphis Grizzlies play with more fire and enthusiasm, immediately helping the team regain the feeling of victory.
In 9 matches with Ja Morant’s presence, the Grizzlies had 6 wins (including a 4-match unbeaten streak from the day he returned).
