Memphis Grizzlies awarded $12.4 million exception following Ja Morant's season-ending injury

The Memphis Grizzlies earned a huge lift on Wednesday when the NBA gave them a $12.4 million injured player exception following star guard Ja Morant's season-ending injury, ESPN reports.  

This provision allows the Grizzlies to sign a player for one year or acquire someone in the final year of their contract. The team has until March 11 to effectively use this exception.  

Tyreek Hill denies filing for divorce despite court filings and insists on a good marriage.

when he sustained a shoulder subluxation. A later MRI indicated a labral tear, prompting the decision for season-ending surgery.   

Despite the delay, Morant is projected to fully recover in time for the 2024-25 NBA season.     

Morant has only played nine games in the 2023-24 season. Morant began the season serving a 25-game suspension for multiple incidents of "conduct detrimental to the league."   

His suspension was due to his posing with a gun during a live-streamed video for the second time in a short period.
