Ja Morant, the point guard for Memphis Grizzlies has been suspended indefinitely by the franchise, just after his second gun video surfaced on the internet yesterday. A couple of months ago, the 23-year-old was also suspended from 8-games by the Grizzlies for flashing a firearm at a Denver-area strip club, while broadcasting it live on Instagram.
On May 14, the statement from Memphis Grizzlies read, “We are aware of the social media video involving Ja Morant. He is suspended from all team activities pending League review. We have no further comment at this time.”
