Memphis Grizzlies Make Big Announcement On Ja Morant

Ja Morant was banished from the Memphis Grizzlies for at least two games after his much-publicized gun incident at a Denver nightclub last week. Now, the Grizzlies have announced that their superstar point guard will miss "at least four" more games.

Morant will remain away from the team for that span, which covers games against the Golden State Warriors, Dallas Mavericks (twice), and the Miami Heat.

The Grizzlies have lost three straight, and have seen the Sacramento Kings catch them for a tie for 2nd spot in the Western Conference.

Morant profusely apologized on social media for the incident, in which he appeared to flash a gun on his own Instagram Live feed from a Denver nightclub.

Some good news today for the embattled young star, however, as Colorado police have closed their investigation into the incident with no charge or crime: “There was not enough available evidence to charge anyone with a crime.”
