It will be a tough matchup for the Grizzlies, who lost last season’s Rookie of the Year, Ja Morant, to an ankle sprain last Monday. They won the game versus the Brooklyn Nets but the price was just too steep.
On the other hand, the Celtics will look to take advantage of the wounded and will put up a fight against the Memphis Grizzlies when they enter TD Garden.
Memphis Grizzlies: Team News
Ja Morant will be out for three to five weeks with what was diagnosed as a Grade 2 left ankle sprain. This means the Memphis Grizzlies will be missing their leading scorer for several games, and other players will need to step up.
Jaren Jackson Jr. and Justise Winslow won’t be back until January, though the timetable for both will be different. If that’s not enough, Xavier Tillman, De'Anthony Melton, Killian Tillie and Jontay Porter are also on the injured list.
Injured: Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr., Justise Winslow, Xavier Tillman, De'Anthony Melton, Killian Tillie, Jontay Porter.
Boston Celtics: Team News
Kemba Walker won’t be back on the Boston Celtics bench until at least January 10 as he is out with a knee injury. Meanwhile, Romeo Langford will miss the game against Memphis with a wrist injury.
According to the latest report, Tacko Fall will be a game-time decision for Celtics coach Brad Stevens.
Injured: Kemba Walker, Romeo Langford
Doubtful: Tacko Fall
