Memphis Grizzlies star guard Ja Morant has been diagnosed with a bone bruise in his right knee and is doubtful to return this postseason, the team said Tuesday.

Morant, who exited during the fourth quarter of Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Golden State Warriors on May 7, is expected to make a full recovery, the team said.

He had averaged 38.3 points, 8.3 assists and 6.7 rebounds in this second-round series against the Warriors.
