The NBA star, who met with NBA commissioner Adam Silver and executives in New York City on March 15, will be eligible to play for the Memphis Grizzlies against the Dallas Mavericks on March 20.



According to the investigation, Ja was “intoxicated” when he displayed the firearm on his Instagram Live.




The league also stated that the investigation was unable to determine whether Ja owned the gun, brought it to the club, or even had it “for an extended period of time.” It went on to say that its investigation found no evidence of Morant having the gun while travelling with the Grizzlies or at any NBA facility.



Ja’s actions were also described as “irresponsible, reckless, and potentially very dangerous” by Silver. He also stated that “It also has serious ramifications given his massive fan base and influence, particularly among young fans who look up to him. He has expressed genuine regret and remorse for his actions.”




Silver concluded that Morant “made it clear” that he used the incident as a learning experience and now understands his role as one of the NBA’s faces.



Morant apologised shortly after the video surfaced and sought treatment at a Florida counselling centre.
