Injure Reports Brooklyn Nets - Memphis Grizzlies

Following a 2-2 road trip, the Brooklyn Nets return home. They lost two straight games to the Lakers and Kings before rebounding with a 109-107 victory over the Trail Blazers on Thursday, despite being a two-point underdog.

Kevin Durant is having another productive season. The power forward, 34, has scored at least 30 points in two of his last three games and is shooting at least 50% in the majority of them.

Kyrie Irving (suspension) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Grizzlies.

Irving was set to return to the field on Sunday after serving an eight-game suspension. However, his questionable status makes his return less certain.

The Memphis Grizzlies are upbeat about this game. They had dropped two straight games to the Wizards and Pelicans before snapping a two-game losing streak with a convincing 121-110 home win over the Thunder on Friday night, covering the 6.5-point spread. Memphis is now the division’s leader.

Ja Morant suffered a Grade 1 ankle sprain against the Thunder on Friday and is expected to be out for at least a week.

Morant’s injury is a significant setback for a Grizzlies team that is 10-6 through 16 games. Morant is typically the offense’s engine, trailing only Joel Embiid, Luka Doncic, and Giannis Antetokounmpo in usage rate (35.1).

The tone of Charania’s report is depressing, and fantasy owners should not be surprised if Morant is sidelined for several weeks.

Jaren Jackson will miss Sunday’s Nets game due to right foot injury management.

Because Jackson is recovering from a serious foot injury, the team is being cautious with him.
