Ja Morant 'Suspended From All Team Activities' After Flashing Gun On IG Live

Ja Morant ‘Suspended From All Team Activities’ After Flashing Gun On IG Live

Ja Morant has been suspended from all team activities by the Memphis Grizzlies after a video surfaced of him brandishing a gun on Instagram Live.

“We are aware of the social media video involving Ja Morant,” the team said in a statement on Sunday. “He is suspended from all team activities pending League review. We have no further comment at this time.”

According to NBA spokesperson Mike Bass, the league is “in the process of gathering more information.”

The video in question started circulating late Saturday night after an Instagram Live session on Morant’s friend Davonte Pack’s account. The star player is seen sitting in a car listening to NBA YoungBoy and is shown holding an alleged handgun in his hand.

The suspension comes just two months after Morant was suspended for eight games after a similar incident occurred in a Colorado strip club. Morant admitted to flashing the gun but denied it belonged to him.

The 23-year-old apologized for his actions and left the team to begin counseling. The league suspended him for eight games without pay. After an investigation, Glendale Police announced that “there was not enough available evidence to charge” him with a crime.
