Ja Morant is seeking help.

Ja Morant has been in the news for a plethora of reasons as of late. Firstly, Morant was in the news over allegations that he threatened a teenager at his home with a gun. Subsequently, he was seen flashing his gun on Instagram Live. In the end, this acted as the final straw for the league. Morant had previously allegedly been involved in an altercation with members of the Pacers, as well. All of these instances forced the league to take action, and consequently, Morant was suspended indefinitely.

Since that time, there has been no timetable for his return. Overall, it seems like the Grizzlies and Morant have an understanding of the situation. Mostly, they just want Morant to get right so that he can return to the team as an improved person. There have been fears that he could ruin his career with this behavior, and based on his apology, it is clear that Ja understands what's at stake. That said, it should come as no surprise that Morant is officially seeking help for his off-court problems.

Ja Morant Seeks Help

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Morant has entered a counseling program. This program is located in Florida, although there are no specifics on what the program entails. The only thing that is really known at this point is that Morant will be getting help for his issues. Overall, this is good news and an important step forward for the young man. The entire NBA world is worried about him, and they are ultimately rooting for him to rise up and conquer any demons he may be battling. While it will not be an easy time, he will have all of the support in the world.

Now, the Grizzlies must keep their spot in the Western Conference without Morant by their side. It is not going to be an easy task, and if Morant is not available for the playoffs, then their season could very well be over. However, one would hope that Morant would come back next year with no distractions to hamper his team. Let us know what you think of all this, in the comments below. Additionally, stay tuned to HNHH for more news and updates from the sports world.
