After being suspended, Ja Morant returned to the Memphis Grizzlies’ bench with a standing ovation.

Memphis‘ high-flying star has been caught in a whirlwind of backlash after his decision to flash a gun on Instagram lLve while in a Colorado strip club has turned his life upside down. Ja was immediately suspended for two games, then faced an indefinite suspension before the NBA decided on 8 games. During his time away Morant reportedly sought treatment in Florida to find better ways to deal with stress. Luckily he has maintained all of his sponsorships while he handles this sticky situation.


Last night, Morant was finally able to rejoin the team and reunite with his Memphis teammates and the city of Memphis gave him a standing ovation.

Memphis head coach Taylor Jenkins revealed it was a “good first day back” for Ja upon his return. Furthermore, Jenkins revealed the goal is to have Ja back on the court tomorrow. Memphis fans are certainly ready for Ja to return and leave the off-court drama behind him.
