ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski believes that Ja Morant is looking at a lengthy suspension next season after a video showing the star guard holding a gun began circulating on social media Saturday night.


The Memphis Grizzlies have suspended Morant from all team activities.

"We are aware of the social media post involving Ja Morant and are in the process of gathering more information," NBA spokesperson Mike Bass said in a statement Sunday.

On Saturday, during an Instagram Live session on Morant's friend Davonte Pack's account, the All-Star flashed a handgun while driving and singing along with a rap song. The video has since been deleted.

Morant left the Grizzlies and entered a counseling program in March after a video showed him holding a gun while intoxicated at a Denver club.  The Grizzlies were in town to play the Denver Nuggets at the time.

In the wake of the Grizzlies' first-round playoff elimination, Morant said he needed to be more disciplined.

"I've just got to be better with my decision-making," he said after a 125-85 loss to the Lakers on April 28. "That's pretty much it. Off-the-court issues affected us as an organization pretty much. Just [need] more discipline."

Morant's future odds were released this week at BetOnline.

Length of Ja Morant Suspension

Over/Under 24.5 games

"We set odds for how many games Morant will be suspended for at the start of the 2023-24 season, and the oddsmakers are expecting (Commissioner Adam) Silver to come down hard," a BetOnline spokesperson said.
