Following his hard fall in the fourth quarter of Game 1 against the Los Angeles Lakers, Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant stated that his participation in Game 2 is uncertain.

Morant injured his right hand during a charge against Lakers forward Anthony Davis, leading him to leave the game early.

As he was making a drive to the basket, Morant was called for a charge and crashed hard onto the court, clutching his right wrist in agony. He immediately went to the Grizzlies' locker room for treatment.

Despite already having a pregame wrap around his right hand due to a contusion, Morant managed to score 18 points before his injury.

However, his departure left a significant void in the Grizzlies' lineup. The 21-year-old, who has become a crucial player for the Grizzlies this season, has been the driving force behind their playoff appearance this year.

Therefore, if he is unable to participate in Game 2, it could significantly affect their chances of progressing to the next round of the playoffs.

Morant's status for Game 2 will likely depend on the severity of his injury and his ability to recover in time.

Nevertheless, the Grizzlies will be hoping that their star point guard will be fit to play in their next game.
