Despite the setbacks, Rose emphasized Morant's resilience and praised him for staying focused and out of the headlines.

"He's a hardworking motherf—er. I know that," said Rose, commending Morant's commitment to the team's practices and routines. Rose expressed pride in Morant's ability to create his own positive bubble and maintain a low profile, especially considering the challenges the team has faced with injuries to key players.

As Memphis, currently 6–19, eagerly anticipates Morant's return, the Grizzlies find themselves 7 1/2 games behind the final play-in spot for the Western Conference postseason. With injuries plaguing the team throughout the season, Morant's comeback provides a glimmer of hope for a potential turnaround.

The spotlight now shifts to Morant as fans and analysts wonder if his return can spark a resurgence for the struggling Grizzlies. With an impressive average of 26.2 points and 8.1 assists per game last season, Morant's presence on the court is expected to have a significant impact on the team's performance in the coming weeks and months.
