Ja Morant suspended from Memphis Grizzlies after flashing apparent gun in second video

Ja Morant has been suspended from all team activities after brandishing a gun in another Instagram Live video, the Memphis Grizzlies announced on Sunday morning.

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

The NBA is also taking a look at the video that gained traction across social media on Sunday morning. This comes after Morant was previously suspended eight games due to conduct detrimental to the team in March after brandishing a gun in a Colorado nightclub.

“We are aware of the social media post involving Ja Morant and are in the process of gathering more information,” NBA spokesperson Mike Brass said.

The viral video was taken from Morant’s close friend Davonte Pack’s Instagram account. Pack was also with Morant on the night of the gun incident in Colorado, and he was suspended from Grizzlies home games earlier this season after a confrontation with players from the Indiana Pacers.
