Morant, who showed a gun on Instagram Live early Saturday morning, will miss at least two Grizzlies games.
Despite being second in the Eastern Conference, the Grizzlies (38-24) will keep Morant out of Sunday's game against the Clippers and Monday's game against the Lakers (Tuesday).
“With all the gun violence in todays america, suspending ja for 2 games, considering his influence, seems like a slap in the face literally EVERYONE,” a fan said of Morant and the Grizzlies.
Brandon Nwokeji, a fan, said, "The Memphis Grizzlies franchise from top to bottom must take the reins to assure Ja's behavior doesn't happen again moving forward." He's too valuable to the city and league to let these PR issues continue unchecked. It's time for a major intervention.”
