Ja Morant suspended from team activities after second video circulates showing him flash a gun


Ja Morant suspended from team activities after second video circulates showing him flash a gun

Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant has been suspended from team activities after an Instagram Live video appearing to show him flashing a gun while in a vehicle with others circulated on social media Sunday, just two months after the athlete was suspended over a similar video.

Morant is suspended from all team activities "pending League review," the Grizzlies announced on Twitter, adding the team had no further comment.

It is not known when or where the video was shot. CNN has reached out to Morant's representative, the Grizzlies, and the NBA for comment.

In March, the NBA suspended Morant for eight games without pay for "conduct detrimental to the league" after he was seen in another Instagram Live video holding a gun at a nightclub in Glendale, Colorado, a suburb of Denver.

At the time, the league said an investigation "did not conclude that the gun at issue belonged to Morant, was brought by him into the nightclub or was displayed by him beyond a brief period. The investigation also did not find that Morant possessed the gun while traveling with the team or in any NBA facility."

Glendale police did not press charges against Morant.

Morant met with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver after the Denver incident. The 23-year-old told ESPN they had an "open discussion."
