Ja Morant Will Be Able To Return To The NBA On This Date


Ja Morant has been through it over the last two weeks. However, this is due to his own actions. Ultimately, Morant found himself suspended from the league after he flashed a gun on Instagram Live. Overall it was a boneheaded move that immediately captured the attention of the NBA. That said, Morant has spent the last week and some change at a counseling program in Florida. He wanted to get his head right, and it was a step in the right direction.

Today, however, it was revealed that Morant would be leaving the program. Additionally, Morant met with Adam Silver who decided that Morant would be allowed to return to the court. Although, at the time of the initial report, there was no direct timeline for when he would be allowed to come back. That has since changed as the NBA and Silver released a statement today. Essentially, Morant was suspended retroactively for eight games. This means the NBA star can come back to the Grizzlies on March 20th.

Ja Morant Can Play Again

"Ja's conduct was irresponsible, reckless and potentially very dangerous," Silver said in the statement. "It also has serious consequences given his enormous following and influence, particularly among young fans who look up to him. He has expressed sincere contrition and remorse for his behavior. Ja has also made it clear to me that he has learned from this incident and he understands his obligations and responsibility to the Memphis Grizzlies and the broader NBA community extend well beyond his play on the court." Subsequently, Morant will get to practice with his teammates. Furthermore, if he does come back on the 20th, it will be against the Dallas Mavericks.

If you are a Grizzlies fan, this is some fantastic news. Morant is the heart and soul of the team, and they need him for this upcoming playoff run. Hopefully, Ja was able to get his mind right so that he doesn't make another mistake, in the future. Let us know what you think of the NBA's latest decision, in the comments below.
