One of the hottest teams in the league is getting their star point guard back.
Morant sprained his knee in a Nov. 26 loss to the Atlanta Hawks and has missed the past 12 games. Yet Memphis has barely missed a beat, holding firm as the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference after going 10-2 in Morant’s absence.
Morant, 22, was having a breakout year in his third season before the injury, averaging 24.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 6.8 assists while shooting 47.6% from the field.
