Video shows play where Jordan Poole grabbed Ja Morant’s knee

Jordan Poole grabs Ja Morant

Ja Morant left Saturday night’s Game 3 between his Memphis Grizzlies and the Golden State Warriors due to a knee injury, and a play by Jordan Poole may have led to the injury.

Poole was seen reaching and pulling back against Morant’s knee as two Warriors players trapped the Grizzlies guard near halfcourt.

Morant stayed in the game briefly but then left and did not return.

Here is the video angle that makes the play look much worse:

Morant left without talking to reporters. He had a slight limp.

Morant had 34 points in 36 minutes during his team’s 142-112 loss to fall behind 2-1 in the series.

Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins was not happy over the play.

One angle made Poole’s play look really bad. But looking at the other angle makes it seem evident that Poole was just trying to reach for the ball to pry it loose.
