Grizzlies' Ja Morant Out 3 to 5 Weeks with Left Ankle Sprain
The Grizzlies' start to the season is off to a rocky start.
Morant was wheelchaired off the court after attempting to block a shot by Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot late in the second quarter of the team's five-point win.

It's terrible timing for the Grizzlies and Morant, who appeared to be taking another leap to superstardom. The guard scored a career-high in the Grizzlies' season opener against the Spurs.
The Grizz are also without Jaren Jackson Jr. who injured his knee last season.
