ESPN’s Brian Windhorst explained why he thinks the Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant is looking at a ‘significant suspension’ after he was seen holding a firearm on social media twice over the span of two months.

“I’ve never heard anything like it,” Windhorst said. “It was very unusual.

“He basically said, ‘I know what I’m going to do but I’m not going to announce it now.’ The second part is that he’s working alongside the players’ association on this. He’s obviously bringing them along side by side. Trust me, typically the players’ association isn’t there as the discipline is being decided on and dolled out.

“So this is a situation that is wide-ranging and quite frankly, the indication here is that this is going to be a significant suspension.”
