With NBA announcement that Grizzlies star Ja Morant is suspended through Monday when he can start working out with the team, Rockets are in Memphis to play next Wednesday and Friday. Would he play that quickly? FWIW, they are the final games of the Grizzlies’ four-game homestand. – 3:27 PM

Ja Morant is eligible to return to the Memphis Grizzlies on a March 20 after serving an eight-game suspension. He’ll have to go through a ramp-up period before playing, but the clock is officially ticking on 12’s return.

Ja Morant suspension: Eight-game ban for NBA star for ‘reckless’ conduct; league counting games already missed

Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
NBA makes Ja Morant eligible to return for Monday’s game in MEM w/Mavs. Rooting for his recovery. @NBA is a much more exciting place when he plays, so not trying to be flip here. He entered a program in Florida on Monday. Does a few days in said program solve his issues? – 3:11 PM

The games Ja Morant has already missed will count toward his suspension, making him eligible to return as soon as Monday vs. the Mavs 👀 pic.twitter.com/aYa0AZ82tu3:10 PM

The NBA did not conclude that the gun at issue belonged to Ja Morant, was brought by him into the nightclub or was displayed by him beyond a brief period.  The investigation also did not find that Morant possessed the gun while traveling with the team or in any NBA facility. – 3:09 PM

The NBA says that the games Grizzlies star Ja Morant has already missed will count as part of his eight-game suspension, making him eligible to return Monday at home against Dallas. The league’s full statement on its Morant investigation: pic.twitter.com/TG6lnkSSPm3:07 PM
Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
Ja Morant has been suspended eight games, per NBA. Morant will be eligible to return on March 20th. In a statement, Adam Silver calls Morant’s conduct “irresponsible, reckless and potentially very dangerous.” – 3:04 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Not gonna pretend like I know Ja Morant or what he’s been dealing with, but I hope he’s all right. What amounts to a couple games suspension – including time already missed where he only spent a few days in counseling –
doesn’t feel like much. – 3:04 PM
Kurt Helin @basketballtalk

Here’s the basketball bottom line of the NBA’s Ja Morant announcement: He’s eligible to be on the court in five days (home against Dallas).

Jaren Jackson Jr. is having a good fifth season, but that’s not enough right now with Ja Morant away.
