A week removed from a tough baseline fall into a photographer against the Indiana Pacers, former Murray State Racer point guard Ja Morant has had back spasms resurface that will keep him out "week-to-week." He did not travel with the team to Minnesota as "a period of short-term off-loading is needed," according to Memphis Grizzlies officials. The early frontrunner for the 2020 NBA Rookie of the Year award is averaging 18.6 points, 6.4 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 28.7 minutes per game so far this season.
