What you need to know about the game
One of the hottest topics this season is whether Zion Williamson will miss many games and win the Rookie of the Year award from Ja Morant.
The Rookie of the Year winner has played at least 50 games, which is the record held by Patrick Ewing and Vince Carter
But Williamson cannot be more than 27 years old.
Zion performed well, but so did Ja, and he has been in this job for longer.
Zion Williamson: 22.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, 21 games
Ja Morant: 17.7 points, 7 assists, 60 games
The Grizzlies have a 6% chance of entering this year’s playoffs, but Morant led them to the eighth seed anyway.
To its credit, Zion is even just a debate, but Morant should definitely not be an overwhelming favorite.
Darius Miller (Achilles) – absent this season
Tyus Jone (knee) – reassessment on August 5
Justise Winslow (hips) – absent this season
Jonat Porter (knee) is out indefinitely
Pelicans $1.53 – Grizzlies $2.50 – The odds are here.
* Sporadic injuries as of 3 p.m. EST on August 3
