Ja Morant was supposed to be out week-to-week with a Grade 1 ankle sprain, but he won't even miss a week.

Morant will return tonight when the Grizzlies take on the Kings.

Memphis needs him — especially against a red-hot Sacramento team — the Grizzlies were a shockingly impressive 20-5 when Morant missed games last season but are 0-3 this season.

The Grizzlies are already without Morant’s backcourt running mate Desmond Bane sidelined with a sprained toe. Morant is playing at an All-NBA level to open the season, averaging 28.6 points a game, along with 7.1 assists and 6.2 rebounds a night.
