NBA Draft prospect Ja Morant resumes basketball activity just one week after minor knee surgery

Ja Morant, NBA Draft

Highly rated 2019 NBA Draft prospect Ja Morant has resumed basketball-related activities just one week after undergoing a minor knee surgery.

Morant’s cousin, Graysen O. Morant, tweeted a video of the NBA aspirant getting his shots. The Murray State guard knocked down eight consecutive 3-pointers with a shooting coach’s hand in his face. Apparently, his knee is doing just fine.

Morant’s camp confirmed to Christian Dudley of BaleStreetBears.com that they shot the video of his hot shooting on June 11 — exactly one week after the minor arthroscopic┬áprocedure on his right knee.

The 19-year-old is projected to be selected in the Top 3 of the NBA Draft. The Memphis Grizzlies, who hold the second overall pick, are reportedly locked-in on selecting the Racers standout.

Of course a lot can still happen with still one week left before the draft. However, Morant’s quick recovery is a good sign which should ease the concerns of Memphis or any team hoping to draft or make a move for him.

In his two years in college, Morant averaged 18.7 points, 6.1 rebounds, 8.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game. In his second and final year in Murray State, he put up 24.5 points, 5.7 rebounds, 10.0 assists and 1.8 steals while shooting at an efficient 49.9 percent from the field.
