X-Rays on Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant’s left ankle reveal no fracture, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Morant, 21, left in the first half of the team’s game against the Brooklyn Nets after landing on the ankle of another player and had to be taken off the court in a wheelchair.

The Grizzlies announced that Morant suffered a left ankle sprain and was wearing a boot when he returned to the bench.

Morant was off to a hot start to the season, averaging 36.0 points, 2.5 rebounds, 8.0 assists and 1.0 steal per game in the first two games.
