Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant is considered week-to-week after further evaluation on his left ankle showed a Grade 1 sprain, the team announced Saturday.

Morant injured his ankle and needed help off the court during Friday's win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The 23-year-old point guard missed one game last week after rolling the same ankle.

Morant exited the win over OKC with 19 points and 11 assists. The one-time All-Star is averaging 28.5 points and 7.1 assists in 14 contests this season.

Memphis is also playing without shooting guard Desmond Bane, who suffered a Grade 2 sprain of his right big toe on Nov. 11 against the Minnesota Timberwolves. He will be sidelined for two-to-three weeks.
