Ja Morant is likely to miss Game 4 against the Golden State Warriors with a knee injury, head coach Taylor Jenkins said. The Memphis Grizzlies are currently down 2-1 in the playoff series.

“He’s got further evaluation going on. But from what I have been told, there is probably a really good chance he doesn’t play tomorrow,” the coach said.

Memphis didn’t give details regarding the exact nature of Morant’s knee injury and has listed him as doubtful with right knee soreness.

The team believes that the injury was caused by a play in which Jordan Poole grabbed Morant’s knee while going for a steal during a double-team trap near half-court.

However, the NBA investigated and decided not to take any disciplinary action on Poole, per ESPN’s report.
