Morant flashed a gun on Instagram Live while at a nightclub on Friday night. Memphis was defeated by the Denver Nuggets on Friday, but Morant still decided to go out following the loss. But that obviously wasn’t the primary issue, as the gun ultimately stole headlines.
He’s dealt with other drama as of late and the Grizzlies have to wonder what is truly going on with their star player.
Ja Morant is one of the most talented players in the entire NBA. He’s averaging over 27 points per game along with six rebounds and eight assists per contest. Morant has led the Grizzlies throughout the 2022-23 season, but this incident will certainly throw a dent in their NBA Finals-pursuit plans.
For now, Morant is suspended only two games. But he may be in line for a longer absence following the NBA’s investigation.
Morant was one of the most beloved players in the league up until the past couple of months. His attention-catching dunks and all-around ability on the court have wowed fans over the past few years. However, he now has a long way to go if he wants to rebuild his reputation.
We will continue to monitor and provide updates on the Ja Morant situation as they are made available.
