Warriors @ Grizzlies in NBA Playoffs Game 5
Morant was diagnosed with a bone bruise in his right knee on Tuesday and the club indicated the face of their franchise is doubtful to return this postseason.
The 22-year-old Morant injured his right knee in Game 3 and sat out Monday’s Game 4, won 101-98 by the host Warriors. Golden State holds a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference semifinals and benefited by Morant’s absence while overcoming a 12-point, fourth-quarter deficit. Morant typically seizes control in fourth quarters and the Grizzlies felt the void while seeing their bid to tie the series slip away.
“It’s a tough one. It’s a tough pill to swallow,” said Tyus Jones, who had 19 points while starting in place of Morant. “It felt like we were leading the whole game.
“It felt like we were in a good position. It felt like we put ourselves in a good position to win a ballgame and things didn’t go our way down the stretch.”
