Ja Morant (conditioning) limited to low-20s off Grizzlies' bench Wednesday
Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant (conditioning/suspension) will play off the bench Wednesday versus the Houston Rockets, per head coach Taylor Jenkins.
Jenkins said Morant will play minutes in the low-20s in his first game back from a nine-game absence, as he continues to regain his conditioning. This will be the first time Morant comes off the bench in his NBA career, but Jenkins indicated that the 23-year-old will likely play off the bench for a couple games.
Ja has a $10,200 salary on Wednesday’s 10-game slate and numberFire's models project him for 34.0 FanDuel points over 23.6 minutes. Per our NBA Heat Map, the Clippers’ implied total is 122.25 and the game total is 232.0.
