Ja Morant Gets 2-Game Suspension


The Memphis Grizzlies announced that Ja Morant will be away from the team for at least their next two games, after the NBA opened an investigation into a social media post by the guard, who livestreamed himself holding what appeared to be a gun at a nightclub.

Morant said in a statement that he takes “full responsibility” for his actions and that he was going to “take some time away to get help.”

The video was streamed by Morant on his Instagram page early Saturday, hours after the Grizzlies played in Denver.

Without any further comment, the Grizzlies said, Morant will miss those two games.
