NBA suspends Ja Morant 25 games for latest gun incident

Jun 16, 2023

The NBA has suspended Ja Morant for 25 games to start the 2023-24 season following the most recent instance of the Memphis Grizzlies star brandishing a firearm on social media, the league announced Friday.

Two months after NBA commissioner Adam Silver suspended Morant for eight games for a series of off-court infractions, including multiple gun-related incidents, Morant flashed what appeared to be a handgun from a vehicle during an Instagram Live video last month. The league launched an investigation, which it concluded prior to the NBA Finals. Morant is currently on an indefinite suspension from the Grizzlies.

In a short statement Friday, the Grizzlies said they respected the league's decision to suspend Morant. The team added, "Our standards as a league and team are clear, and we expect that all team personnel will adhere to them."
