Losing Dillon Brooks for a long period of time is tough, but the Grizzlies have put themselves in a manageable situation. They have the 2nd easiest remaining strength of schedule in the Western Conference and have a five-game cushion between themselves and the fifth seed. – 5:16 PM

Memphis Grizzlies list Ja Morant as questionable for tonight’s game against the Lakers because of left thigh soreness. Steven Adams (health and safety protocols) & Dillon Brooks (left ankle sprain) are both out. – 4:01 PM

Jaren Jackson Jr. said it was tough tough to see Dillon Brooks get hurt. Jaren said he checked out the next few possessions and didn’t want to play but they all knew they had to play for Dillon. – 6:34 PM

Jaren Jackson Jr. on seeing Dillon Brooks get hurt:
“It was tough. I didn’t even want to play for like three possessions. I was checked out for a second. It affects you for sure, but you know you have to play for him at the end of the day.” – 6:31 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Jaren Jackson Jr. on what goes through when Dillon Brooks went down: “It’s tough” — he said he checked out for a few possessions after he went down. Only thing you can do is keep going — “that’s what he wants” — and have his teammates back.
Next-man up mentality. – 6:29 PM

Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
Acting Head Coach Brad Jones said Dillon Brooks will get evaluated tomorrow and will have a better idea of what it is. Jones said it is just very disappointing for Dillon with what he has to deal with this season with injuries and H&S protocols. – 6:20 PM

Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
Great win for the @Memphis Grizzlies but still a heavy heart for Dillon Brooks! Hoping for a speedy recovery and hope he is ok! – 6:06 PM
