Morant says he feels healthier and is "leaving the floor easier" following the NBA's hiatus, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.
Morant underwent surgery on his knee a year ago. By all accounts, he's seemed healthy, throwing down high-flying dunks and making hyper-athletic plays. He's on pace to win Rookie of the Year, averaging 17.6 points, 6.9 assists and 3.5 rebounds. Morant's performance will be crucial to the Grizzlies and their hope of retaining the eighth seed in the Western Conference.
