Ja Morant reportedly subpoenaed to testify in civil lawsuit over alleged assault of teenager

Dec 2, 2023

As Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant's return to the basketball court looms, so do his upcoming legal obligations.

The 24-year-old was issued a subpoena to appear at an immunity hearing for a civil lawsuit in Memphis, according to a Friday report from ESPN's Baxter Holmes.

Morant is being sued by Joshua Holloway, who told police the point guard punched him 12 or 13 times during a pickup basketball game at Morant's home during July 2022. Holloway was 17 at the time. He claimed Morant and a friend's strikes were so hard that a "large knot" formed on the side of his head, adding that Morant allegedly went into his home after the incident and came back outside with a gun.
