Pelicans vs Grizzlies Tuesday: Lineups, Injury Reports & Broadcast Info

Ja Morant, Memphis Grizzlies, NBA
NBA Analysis Network

Brandon Ingram and the New Orleans Pelicans (27-37) will take on Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies (44-22) during the NBA Tuesday slate.

The Pelicans still are without Zion Williamson, but recently, he did travel to New Orleans to continue his rehab efforts after positive recent scans of his foot.

The team has been playing well since the CJ McCollum trade given he has offered a needed scoring and playmaking punch to a previously underwhelming backcourt. New Orleans is coming off a heartbreaking overtime loss against the Denver Nuggets with Nikola Jokic taking over in MVP fashion.

It has been an impressive season for the Grizzlies with Ja Morant leading the charge. They will look to bounce back from a letdown loss against the Houston Rockets in their previous game.
