The former Murray State sensation went down Monday against the Nets, and had to be taken off of the court in a wheelchair.
Now, it sounds like we know the severity of the situation, and he’s going to miss roughly a month of action.

Is missing up to five weeks of action good? Obviously not. Morant is one of the most electric guards in the entire league.
The NBA needs him out there playing and putting up highlights. Unfortunately, that won’t be happening for a little bit.
As anyone who knows anything about sports injuries will tell you, sprained ankles are no joke. They can be absolutely brutal.

Let’s hope he bounces back better than ever. He’s one of the best players in the NBA, and the league needs him playing at his best.
