In an interconference matchup, two teams square off on the parquet floor in Bluff City. The Atlanta Hawks are on the road, traveling to Memphis on Monday night to face the Grizzlies.
Injury status of Ja Morant and Dejounte Murray
The Hawks have a 32-20 series lead and won both meetings last season. This includes a 120-105 win in the most recent meeting on March 18, 2022.
Dejounte Murray (ankle) left the game against the Knicks on December 7 after only four minutes. He is expected to be out of commission for at least two weeks.
Collins (ankle) will be out for at least two weeks after injuring himself on November 30 against Orlando.
Hunter (hip) suffered an injury in the same game and has missed the last four games; he is considered day-to-day.

Memphis won at home against the Pistons on Friday night, extending their winning streak to five games. On Sunday, the Grizzlies improved to 17-9 on the season and were second in the Southwest Division, half a game behind the Pelicans.
Ja Morant is questionable for Monday’s game against Atlanta due to right thigh soreness.
Morant has been spectacular in his last three games, averaging 24.7 points, 11.0 assists, and 8.0 rebounds in 32.7 minutes. If Tyus Jones does not show up on Monday, he will almost certainly see more playing time.
Steven Adams is questionable for Monday’s game against Atlanta due to right ankle soreness.
In the last three games, Adams averaged 8.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 24.0 minutes per game. If Brandon Clarke is unable to play on Monday, he will most likely see increased playing time.
