Ja Morant will return to the floor against the New Orleans Pelicans

Ja Morant, the controversial Memphis Grizzlies point guard who was suspended for 25 games by the National Basketball Association (NBA) in connection with displaying a firearm on his social media, confirmed that he will return to the court at the first opportunity — in a road game with the New Orleans Pelicans. .

Under one of the fan posts on social networks, Ja Morant left a terse comment: “December 19th,” which is the date of the game with the Pelicans.

After 19 NBA regular season games, the Grizzlies have just five wins and are in second-to-last place in the Western Conference.
