VIDEO: Ja Morant Helped off Court vs Pacers After Taking Scary Spill

Anyone connected with the Memphis Grizzlies is currently holding their breath and awaiting any sort of positive news on breakout rookie point guard Ja Morant. After a particularly hard fall on a layup against the Indiana Pacers, Morant needed to be helped into the locker room, and it remains unclear if he'll return in this game.

The No. 2 overall pick out of Murray State has established himself as the early favorite for Rookie of the Year. Morant came into this game averaging 19.1 points and 6.0 assists-per-game, electrifying the Memphis crowd with his show-stopping athleticism and forming a terrific 1-2 punch with fellow Top-5 pick Jaren Jackson Jr. inside.

The Grizzlies might not be a great team, but they're fun to watch, and Morant is at the center of it all. It could be a death blow for their season if he misses any extended period of time.

Let's cross our fingers and hope Ja can shake this off, as his unique, rim-rocking style of play has quickly become one of the must-see shows in the 2019 NBA season.
