During the Memphis Grizzlies third consecutive road loss on Monday against the Sacramento Kings, Ja Morant was ruled out for the contest due to left ankle soreness.
Before the Grizzlies travel to San Francisco on Wednesday, Morant has been removed from the injury report and is expected to play against the Golden State Warriors at Chase Center.

Ja Morant will return against the Warriors tomorrow night after missing the Sacramento game. Not listed on the injury report. Steven Adams is out again. Knee soreness. The Grizzlies are trying to avoid an 0-4 open to their road trip.
