It appears that Ja Morant is going to be getting a lengthy suspension.
Memphis Grizzlies star point guard Ja Morant remains under investigation by the NBA for appearing to brandish a handgun in an Instagram Live video, but a verdict has seemingly been reached.
Silver announced that the league has found additional information and his suspension won’t be announced until after the NBA Finals is over.
“We’ve uncovered a fair amount of additional information. We probably could have brought it to a head now, but we’ve made the decision that it would be unfair to these players and these teams to announce that decision in the middle of this series.”
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver told reporters that the outcome of the investigation will not be announced until after the NBA Finals series between the Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat concludes.
His new comments only raise more questions about what the league has found, but it certainly doesn’t sound good for Morant.
Silver would not comment either way on whether Morant would be available to start the season, but it seems clear that the Grizzlies’ star guard will a fairly significant chunk of games to start next season.
The former Murray State star was suspended by the NBA (for eight games) during the regular season due to a similar incident.
