Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant has been suspended for two games today for showing a gun while in a club.
It has been a week to forget for the NBA and Memphis Grizzlies superstar Ja Morant because of his actions. A few days earlier, he was accused of pulling a gun on a 17-year-old kid during the summer, which Morant said was due to self-defense. Yesterday, during a live Instagram video, the Memphis forward showed a gun while enjoying a night out at a club in Denver.
Since the video surfaced online, things have escalated quickly, and the NBA has opened an investigation on the same issue. The Memphis Grizzlies have issued a statement confirming the suspension for a minimum of two games, in which he will miss the upcoming games against the Lakers and Clippers.
Ja Morant himself has apologized for the incident, saying, “I take full responsibility for my actions last night. I’m sorry to my family, teammates, coaches, fans, partners, the city of Memphis, and the entire Grizzlies organization for letting you down.” “I’m going to take some time away to get help and work on learning better methods of dealing with stress and my overall well-being,” he wrote.
