News

Notes 
 Ja Morant was terrific in his first-year campaign with the Grizzlies by winning the 2019 Rookie of the Year Award. He averaged 17.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 7.3 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.9 triples while shooting 47.7 percent from the floor across 31.0 minutes in 2019-20. The Grizzlies will rely on Morant to shoulder the offensive load and once again carry them to the playoffs. Morant will look build on his strong rookie campaign and is expected to go in the top-25 in upcoming fantasy drafts.
