Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant is doubtful for the rest of the NBA postseason due to a bone bruise in his right knee, the team announced Tuesday. Morant exited during the fourth quarter of Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals on Saturday against the Golden State Warriors with right knee soreness and missed Game 4.

Warriors guard Jordan Poole appeared to grab Morant's knee late in the fourth quarter of Game 3. The Grizzlies guard limped off the court during a timeout and went to the locker room, before going to get his knee evaluated. There will be no action taken from the NBA on Poole.

Morant, 22, claimed the NBA's Most Improved Player award after posting averages of 27.4 points, 6.7 assists and 5.7 rebounds a contest this year while leading Memphis to a 56-26 record in the regular season.

The Warriors lead the series 3-1. Game 5 in Memphis tips off Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. ET.
