Ja Morant, star of the Memphis Grizzlies, is looking forward to returning to the parquet. The high-flying acrobatic player announced his return in a post on X, letting Grizzlies fans know he is counting down the days.
“Returning soon. 8 days and 4 games.”, Morant said.

Dotted with controversy, 2023 has been a problematic year for Morant. From the laser-tipped incident with the Indiana Pacers in February to a pair of live videos on Instagram in which he displayed a gun, the last of which led Morant to be sanctioned with a 25-game suspension, the Grizzlies faithful can only hope that he gets his act together this time.
It doesn’t help that the Grizzlies are plagued by injuries. Center Steven Adams has been ruled out for the season because of knee surgery. Brandon Clarke is still recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon suffered last March. To make matters worse, former Defensive Player of the Year Marcus Smart suffered a foot sprain a month ago and is still unable to play. Let’s hope Ja Morant can help them regain success.
