Morant enters counseling program, still out indefinitely

Grizzlies star guard Ja Morant has entered a counseling program in Florida and there is no timeline for his return to court, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Tim MacMahon report.

Morant has already missed five games. He took time off following an incident in which he displayed a gun on an Instagram Live video while at a Denver-area strip club. Glendale, Colorado police said last week that Morant would not be charged with a felony for his actions at the club.

However, Morant was reportedly involved in a number of disturbing off-court incidents, convincing him to seek help.

Ahead of Memphis’ Monday game against Dallas, coach Taylor Jenkins was asked about Morant’s potential return date. He didn’t provide any details, MacMahon tweet.

“There are a lot of internal dialogues going on and obviously there are still things going on at the league level that we are in communication with,” Jenkins said. “Ja is fully committed to this process and ready for whatever comes after these two games.”
