In a potentially troubling turn of events, NBA star, Ja Morant, finds himself in the middle of controversy as yet another video, involving the presence of a firearm, has emerged on social media platforms, reports the New York Post.

In an Instagram Live video attributed to the account ” _dtap2,” wherein Morant can be seen seated in a vehicle, brandishing what seems to resemble a gun. On Sunday, the Memphis Grizzlies took decisive action and promptly suspended their standout guard from engaging in any team-related activities.

“We are aware of the social media video involving Ja Morant,” the Grizzlies said in a statement. “He is suspended from all team activities pending League review. We have no further comment at this time.”

This new footage follows a previous incident that occurred just over two months ago. Back on March 4, Morant stirred up controversy after sharing an Instagram Live video wherein he was seen brandishing a firearm while inside Glendale’s renowned Shotgun Willie’s strip club.

“Ja Morant is facing the very real possibility of a lengthy suspension to start next season,” Adrian Wojnarowski reported Sunday on ESPN’s “NBA Countdown.”
