Grizzlies star Ja Morant left in the first quarter of Memphis’ Friday game against the visiting Atlanta Hawks due to a left knee injury.

Morant was dribbling in the paint, fending off a double-team before retreating. He came up hopping, avoiding putting weight on the left leg after passing the ball. He was helped to the locker room.
