Sources: Grizzlies get $12.4M exception for injured Ja Morant – 

Due to star guard Ja Morant's season-ending injury, the NBA has awarded the Memphis Grizzlies a $12.4 million injured player exception,

according to sources who spoke with ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on Wednesday.

The exception, which enables a team to sign a free agent to a one-year contract or trade for a player who is in the final year of his contract, can be used by the Grizzlies until March 11.

During a training session earlier this month, Morant sustained a dislocation of his right shoulder. 

 By the time the 2024–25 season begins, he should have totally healed.

After serving a 25-game ban at the beginning of the season, he only appeared in nine games for the Grizzlies.

. Morant was suspended due to actions that were bad for the league.

Friday night was a memorable one for Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic, who lit up State Farm Arena with a career-high 73 points in a 148-143 victory over the Atlanta Hawks, who were hosting the game.
