The Golden State Warriors beat the Memphis Grizzlies 142-112 on Saturday night and took a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference semifinals. The Grizzlies star guard Ja Morant re-injured his right knee late in the game when Golden State’s Jordan Poole grabbed it as they fought for a loose ball.

“He’s getting evaluated now. Nothing further. We just watched the replay,” Memphis head coach Taylor Jenkins said after the game, via ESPN. “He was going after a dribble and Jordan Poole actually grabbed his knee and yanked it, which kind of triggered whatever happened, so I’m actually going to be very curious to see what happens after that.”
