(NBA) Ja Morant who’s one of the top prospects coming out of college basketball is getting a minor procedure done on his knee just weeks before the 2019 NBA Draft.
Murray State guard Ja Morant is scheduled to undergo a minor procedure on his right knee on Monday. The injury is only expected to sideline Morant for three to four weeks.
Murray State guard Ja Morant the projected No. 2 pick in this month’s NBA draft — will undergo a minor arthroscopic procedure on his right knee Monday, league sources told ESPN.
Morant is expected to be fully recovered in three to four weeks, sources said.
The scope is designed to remove loose bodies in his knee, sources said.
Morant’s agent, Jim Tanner of Tandem Sports, has reportedly spoken with teams in the lottery about the upcoming surgery. The top three picks in the upcoming NBA Draft, Zion Williamson looks like he’s going first to the New Orleans Pelicans. Ja Morant will head to the Memphis Grizzlies. The New York Knicks will use the No. 3 choice to take R.J. Barrett from Duke. But wait, according to the New York Post, the Knicks might end up landing Morant on June 20.
Not for nothing at this point anything can change once the NBA Finals are over. At any point, the Pelicans might officially put star center Anthony Davis on the block, with New York being one of the biggest suitors. So you just never know what’s going to actually happen until it happens.
