Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant has been away from the team over the last week, as he entered the NBA's health and safety protocols. Grizzlies head coach Taylor Jenkins said the teams hopes Morant rejoins them this weekend.
Jenkins said Morant is "feeling great" from both his injury and illness. There hasn't been a firm return-to-play date set yet for Morant, as he recovers from a sprained left knee.
Morant has missed 11 straight games for the Grizzlies since getting injured on November 28. Since that point, Memphis has won 10 of their last 11 games. The Grizzlies have had two five-game win streaks sandwiched around a lone loss.
