Draymond won't go 'tit for tat' with Morant after deleted tweet originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Draymond Green is not looking to get involved in the fallout from the Ja Morant injury.

In the fourth quarter of the Warriors' 142-112 win over the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinal series at Chase Center, Morant got tangled up with Jordan Poole on a loose-ball play where Poole grabbed near Morant's knee, who appeared to sustain an injury on the play that sidelined him the remaining five minutes of the game.

In his postgame press conference, Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins insinuated that Poole caused the injury to Morant, who then tweeted -- and deleted -- a video of the play with the caption "broke the code."

Both Steph Curry and Klay Thompson offered strong responses of their own, defending the play that Poole called a "basketball play." Draymond, on the other hand, isn't looking to get involved in a back and forth with Morant and the Grizzlies.

"Nah I don't have a response to it," Draymond said when asked about Morant's tweet. "It looked to me like they bumped knees before he even reached. That's kind of what I thought I saw. But no, I'm not going to sit here and go tit for tat, we got a basketball game to try and win Monday."

Draymond has been in the spotlight already this series, receiving a Flagrant 2 foul and subsequent ejection from Game 1 and then taking an elbow to the face in Game 2 before proceeding to flip off the booing Grizzlies fans in attendance at FedExForum. He received a $25,000 fine days later, and it's clear that now he's looking to stay out of the fire.

Every game there's something new, and Game 4 on Monday night should be more of the same.
