Ja Morant has been the biggest story in the entire NBA over the past few weeks. Overall, this is due to the fact that he flashed a gun on Instagram Live. He was subsequently suspended by the NBA for a total of eight games. Moreover, during the midst of this controversy, he was accused of threatening a teenager and a mall cop. These alleged instances had happened in the past, although they were definitely publicized quite a bit throughout this controversy.
Now, however, Morant is allowed back with the Memphis Grizzlies. Morant was reinstated by the league on Monday. That night, his team had a game against the Dallas Mavericks, although he did not play. Instead, the team wanted him to gradually get back into the swing of things, instead of just going full force back into the game. It was a solid decision that ultimately allowed Morant to have fun with his teammates yesterday. According to TMZ, head coach Taylor Jenkins even offered a nice update on Morant and what he did on Monday.
Ja Morant Is Almost Back
As Jenkins explained, Morant got to address the team on Monday, where he outlined his changed behaviors. Additionally, Jenkins suggested that Morant will likely return to the court on Wednesday, which is tomorrow. The Grizzlies are set to play the Houston Rockets in Memphis, so it's the perfect time for Morant to return. He won't be dealing with any of the vices from the road, and he will be playing a very easy opponent. No matter what, the Grizzlies fanbase will be happy to have him back.
This whole situation has been very stressful for Ja, the franchise, and of course, the fans. However, it seems like the matter has been resolved, at least for now. It will now be up to Morant to showcase that he has truly changed. Hopefully, this last stretch of the season goes off without any issues. Below, you can find what fans have to say about all of this.
