Game Preview

The Tuesday matchup between the visiting Memphis Grizzlies and the New Orleans Pelicans might appear to be another normal contest on the busy NBA schedule.

For Memphis, the game is anything but ordinary. With star Ja Morant set to make his much-anticipated season debut, the Grizzlies are hoping the matchup marks the start of a concerted playoff push.

Memphis has struggled mightily without Morant, who received a 25-game suspension after he held a gun during a livestream video last year. The NBA ruled that his actions were detrimental to the league and announced the punishment.
