Is Ja Morant back in action for the Memphis Grizzlies? Learn all there is to know.

Ja Morant, the star point guard for the Memphis Grizzlies made a reputation for himself to be one of the brightest young stars in the league – however, the last month was not too kind to the young guard courtesy of a number of controversies. In a string of incidents dating back to last summer, Morant and people close to him were accused of threatening and even violent behaviour – while Morant made it even worse.

While it was revealed that police were looking into the allegations, Morant decided to make things even worse for himself after he flashed a gun in a Denver nightclub only days after.

While in Denver after playing against the Nuggets, the All-Star guard chose to display a firearm on his Instagram live stream – that saw him get suspended by the Grizzlies for at least two games. Morant made things even worse for himself soon after that, as he reportedly carried the gun with him on the Grizzlies’ team premises.

Morant has since received wholesale criticism for his actions, while there have been all sorts of rumours about his future. Morant was sent for counselling for his behaviour, and has also received an eight-game suspension without pay. However, Morant made his return back to the court recently after serving his time out.

It felt good to be back, super excited. Glad we were able to get the win,” said Morant. He had been available to face the Dallas Mavericks on Monday but sat the game out. Morant played 24 minutes against the Rockets and finished with 17 points, four rebounds and five assists.

Once I got out there on the court and saw the fans’ reaction to me being back, it definitely helped me a lot. Made me feel good inside,” Morant commented.
