After Ja Morant injury, Grizzlies could make big trade

Just a few days ago, the Memphis Grizzlies were mentioned as potential trade deadline bidders.

Second incident within three months, with the first resulting in an eight-game NBA suspension and $669,000 salary loss for Morant.

The NBA reacted to Morant's punishment. “Hopefully Ja gets the message this is aiming to send,” Philly Sports Network's Sean Barnard wrote.

Location and timing of the video remain unknown. NBA spokesperson, Mike Bass, acknowledges the social media post and states they are gathering more information.

The Grizzlies are aware of the situation and have taken action by suspending Morant.  

Further updates and consequences for Morant are expected as more information is gathered. 

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."
