Ja Morant is making headlines…again.
We previously reported that on Sunday (May 14), Ja Morant was suspended by the NBA again after a video showing the Memphis Grizzlies point guard flashing a gun while on Instagram Live in a car with friends.
“We are aware of the social media post involving Ja Morant. He is suspended from all team activities pending league review,” the Grizzlies said in a statement. “We have no further comment at this time.”
This incident comes two months after the 23-year-old was hit with an eight-game suspension after another Instagram Live captured him brandishing a gun at a strip club called Shotgun Willie’s in Glendale, Colorado.
Following the second incident, Morant issued another statement saying, “I know I’ve disappointed a lot of people who have supported me,” the statement began. “This is a journey and I recognize there is more work to do. My words may not mean much right now, but I take full accountability for my actions. I’m committed to continuing to work on myself.”
