Ja Morant Reportedly Blamed Heavy Drinking For His Bad Decisions

Ja Morant has since been in the news after the NBA suspended him for brandishing a handgun during an Instagram Live video for the second time in a little more than two months.

The ban, this time, is for 25 games, the league announced Friday in a statement.

Ja Morant reportedly blamed “heavy drinking” for his bad decisions in Colorado during a meeting with Adam Silver, Joe Dumars, and Tamika Tremaglio.

“They heard him blame the poor decision making inside that Glendale, Colo., strip club on the heavy drinking, recalling how the events of that night were all so fuzzy because of the booze that was flowing so freely. They believed him when he shared a message that was both humble and contrite.”

On May 16, Morant issued a statement taking full accountability for his actions. Morant again issued a statement after the latest suspension was announced, saying he will spend the “offseason and my suspension continuing to work on my own mental health and decision making.”

The Grizzlies said in a statement on Friday that they respect the league’s decision. “Our standards as a league and team are clear, and we expect that all team personnel will adhere to them,” the statement read.

The league said that Morant will be required to meet certain conditions before he returns to play and will be ineligible to participate in any public league or team activities, including preseason games, during the suspension.
