The Memphis Grizzlies suspended Ja Morant on Sunday after he appeared to have a gun in another social media video streamed on Instagram, the latest in a series of concerning incidents involving the two-time All-Star.
Morant has been seen holding what appears to be a weapon twice in less than three months. As a result of the first incident in March, Morant was suspended from the NBA for eight games, costing him about $669,000 in salary.
Morant may face sanctions for the second video, which was captured Saturday night and widely shared online. Persons familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that Morant associate Davonte Pack streamed the video on his Instagram account. Neither the NBA nor the Grizzlies have commented on the latest video.
The Grizzlies, whose season is over, said Morant is suspended from all team activities “pending league review.”
