in the Western Conference. There was hope the season would turn around after Ja Morant came back from his 25 game suspension. But it was a short return as Morant fell to a season ending injury. Memphis is far behind the playoff race and considering Desmond Bane and Marcus Smart are still out, it might time to pull the plug on the season.
With that said, there is still a reason to be optimistic about this Grizzlies team. Ja Morant and everyone else should return to the lineup fully healthy. Additionally, Memphis will have great draft capital and have a chance to land a stud rookie to the roster. The future is still bright for this franchise. It’s just this season was a total disaster thanks to the injuries.
