NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is scheduled to have a meeting with Ja Morant, the standout player for the Memphis Grizzlies, as Morant approaches the conclusion of his suspension.
Morant faced a suspension of at least 25 games in June due to a second instance of displaying a firearm in public.
Silver, when announcing the suspension, mentioned his intention to evaluate Morant’s preparedness for a comeback before lifting the suspension.
As of Saturday, Silver suggested that the two-time All-Star is making positive progress.
“I have been monitoring this situation closely,” Silver told reporters before the in-season tournament finale in Las Vegas.
“We together laid out a program for him over the last several weeks, and to the best of my knowledge, he’s complied with everything he’s been asked to do.”
