The Memphis Grizzlies have suspended Ja Morant from all team activities after a video surfaced of the star point guard waving a handgun on Saturday night via Instagram. You read that right, Morant has been suspended again for committing an almost identical offense which got him disciplined by the league two months ago for similarly waving a handgun while intoxicated in a Denver nightclub.

The latest suspension is pending league review while the NBA is “in the process of gathering more information,” according to spokesperson Mike Bass. It’s been a rollercoaster of a year for Morant, whose Grizzlies recently crashed out of the playoffs in the first round to the Los Angeles Lakers, despite having the number two seed in the Western Conference and the best home record in the league.

Off the court, it has been far worse. Morant, along with his friend Davonte Pack, who was also in the since-deleted video, are being sued for assaulting a high school boy after a pickup game in the NBA star’s backyard in March. After serving an eight game suspension for the first gun incident in Denver, Morant pledged to be “more responsible, more smarter and staying away from all the bad decisions.”

Neither Morant nor the Grizzlies have not provided an official statement on the latest incident.
