The New York Knicks will wrap up their quick road trip with a game in Memphis, but like the Grizzlies, could be without their star guard. Jalen Brunson injured his calf in New York's 128-124 loss to Dallas on Thursday.

The good news is that the Knicks will face a squad without several key players. After it was reported Ja Morant would undergo season-ending surgery (he played in only nine games after his suspension), it was reported Marcus Smart would be out for at least six weeks. The Grizzlies truly can't catch a break.
