Dillon Brooks Picks Up Third Suspension Of Season

The Memphis Grizzlies' behavioral issues continue to haunt them. Just as they're finally on the verge of getting Ja Morant back in the lineup, it appears that they'll be without Dillon Brooks, who has picked up his third suspension of the season. 

The technical foul call by Tony Brothers was for Brooks' taunting of the Dallas Mavericks' bench following his poster dunk on Maxi Kleber. The tech was Brooks' 18th of the season, which means an automatic suspension for Wednesday night's game.

Brooks was also suspended back on Feb. 3rd for one game, for hitting Donovan Mitchell in the groin, and again on Mar. 4th for receiving his 16th tech.

The feisty sixth-year wing was also fined last week $35,000 for unsportsmanlike actions for shoving a camera person.

The Grizzlies are a very talented team, but their extracurricular nonsense could be the team's undoing when all is said and done. 

For now, they will be getting Morant back on Wednesday, but are without center Steven Adams for the rest of the regular season with a knee injury, and without Brooks as well for Wednesday.

As for Brooks, he is averaging 14.2 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.6 assists this season, but doing it very inefficiently, as his shooting has been dreadful, with a career-low 39% on FG, and just 32.4% from three.
