Ja Morant averaged 24.5 points and an NCAA-leading 10 assists in his sophomore season.

Murray State point guard Ja Morant, the presumed No. 2 pick in this June's NBA Draft, will have a minor arthroscopic procedure on his right knee Monday, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Murray State guard Ja Morant -- the projected No. 2 pick in this month's NBA draft -- will undergo a minor arthroscopic procedure on his right knee Monday, league sources told ESPN. Morant is expected to be fully recovered in three to four weeks, sources said.

The scope is designed to remove loose bodies in his knee, sources said.

 NBA.com's Consensus Mock Draft has Morant going to the Grizzlies with the No. 2 pick, possibly learning behind veteran Mike Conley.

In addition to averaging 24.5 points and 10 assists, Morant chipped in 5.7 rebounds and 1.8 steals in his sophomore season.
