  • Morant will play 28 minutes against the Charlotte Hornets.
  • Morant will have a double-double against the Orlando Magic.
  • Morant will score 32 points along with 12 assists and nine rebounds against the Utah Jazz.

In what will likely be a handily win for the Grizzlies against a beat-up Charlotte team, Ja Morant will get limited minutes in a blowout win playing only 28 minutes.

The young Orlando Magic team has created a tough-nosed identity as they have been competitive with every team this season. In a close and scrappy game between two young teams, the Murray State product will post a double-double with 23 points and 13 assists.

Returning to Memphis on Sunday, the home team fans will lift Morant and the Grizzlies to a win over the Jazz. In the victory, Morant will finish with an impressive stat line. The star guard will have 32 points, 12 assists, and nine rebounds, coming up just short of a triple-double.
