Ja Morant still with no timetable on returning to Grizzlies’ lineup

Memphis Grizzlies superstar guard Ja Morant has entered a counseling program in Florida and there is still no timetable for his return, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Ja Morant has been seeking assistance for his off-court issues and has taken time out of Memphis on a leave from the team, the NBA insider reports.

The Grizzlies announced that the 23-year-old superstar guard will miss another four games and would be out at least through Wednesday’s game against the Miami Heat.

Morant had initially been suspended two games for a social media post, where he live streamed himself holding what appeared to be a gun at a nightclub. The incident took place in Denver on Saturday, March 4.

The NBA has an ongoing investigation into the matter and the franchise has repeatedly indicated publicly that Morant will be held accountable for a pattern of questionable decision-making and behavior.

This is at least the second time in the last few weeks that Ja Morant, who has deactivated his social media accounts, has been the subject of a league investigation for his actions on and off the court.

Ja Morant is averaging 27.1 points and 8.2 assists per game, while the Grizzies are second in the Western Conference standings with a 41-26 record, 4.5 games behind the West leaders Denver Nuggets (46-22), who are on a 3-game losing skid.
