Ja Morant out for the rest of the season! BAD injury to right shoulder.

Memphis Grizzlies superstar Ja Morant, recently returned from a 25-game suspension at the start of the 2023-24 season, will miss the rest of the year due to a right shoulder injury, the team announced on Monday night..

Morant suffered a right shoulder subluxation during a training session on Saturday. Due to continued pain and instability, Morant underwent an MRI that revealed a labyrinthine tear in his right shoulder.

Since returning from his early-season suspension, Morant has played at an All-Star level. In nine total games, the Grizzlies guard averaged 25.1 points, 8.1 assists and 5.6 rebounds per game, shooting 47.1 percent from the field. He won Western Conference Player of the Week in Week 9 of the NBA season, Dec. 18-24.

Ja Morant, 24, now joins a long list of Grizzlies players who are out due to injury. Before the season began, starting center Steven Adams suffered a right knee injury and was declared out for the entire year. Brandon Clarke, who suffered a ruptured left Achilles tendon in March 2023, has not yet made his return to the court and hopes to return in some fashion at the All-Star Game in February.
