Fantasy Impact:

Just a short time ago, the Grizzlies ruled out star PG Ja Morant for the second consecutive game. Head Coach Taylor Jenkins told the media on Wednesday that they won't rush back the superstar and that from what he has heard, Morant will not require surgery on his knee. It remains unknown if he returns in the series, but the Grizzlies are down 3-2 heading into a crucial Game 6 matchup on the Warriors' home court. With the veteran out of the lineup, Tyus Jones will likely start again and Steven Adams will also see an increase in his minutes once again for likely the third consecutive game.
