The Memphis Grizzlies confirmed that Ja Morant will miss at least two games.
Despite being second in the Eastern Conference, the Grizzlies (38-24) will keep Morant out of Sunday's game against the Clippers and Monday's game against the Lakers (Tuesday).
The NBA reacted to Morant's punishment.
“Hopefully Ja gets the message this is aiming to send,” Philly Sports Network's Sean Barnard wrote.
What's Ja doing? "Too good and young to be destroying his own career," wrote Vic Lombardi.
Brandon Nwokeji, a fan, said, "The Memphis Grizzlies franchise from top to bottom must take the reins to assure Ja's behavior doesn't happen again moving forward."
