NBA star Ja Morant suspended again for social media gun video

Memphis Grizzlies player Ja Morant has been suspended for the second time in three months after appearing in a social media video with what appeared to be a gun. The video, which was streamed live on Instagram, is currently being investigated by the NBA. Morant was previously suspended for eight games and fined $669,000 for a similar video in March. It is unclear what penalties he will face this time. The 21-year-old, who is entering the first year of a five-year, $194m contract, has been working on his behaviour after previously apologising for his actions.

Ja Morant, the star point guard for the Memphis Grizzlies, has been suspended by the team after another video surfaced of him holding what appears to be a gun during an Instagram live stream.

This is the second incident of this nature within three months and could have serious repercussions for his career and reputation. The first incident led to an eight-game NBA suspension and a loss of approximately $669,000 in salary.

It remains unclear what penalties Morant will face for the second video. The Grizzlies have suspended him from all team activities pending league review, and the NBA is currently gathering information on the matter.
