Sharing this story I wrote in September 2022 ahead of the season, where Ja Morant opened up about his mental health.

Last week, a Grizzlies security official accompanied Ja Morant to a retreat-like facility in Florida, where he is receiving counseling for the personal issues that have kept him away from the organization, ⁦@The Athletictheathletic.com/4306441/2023/0…10:04 PM

With news that Ja Morant has entered counseling in Florida, it’s hard to imagine him making All-NBA, which I think would have been likely without these incidents. Not making All-NBA would cost him about $39 million, reducing his contract from a projected 5/$233m to 5/$194m – 8:46 PM

Powerade pulls Ja Morant ad in wake of gun incident nba.nbcsports.com/2023/03/13/pow…10:16 AM

More on this storyline

Tim MacMahon: Taylor Jenkins on if Ja Morant returns Fri: “There are a lot of internal dialogues going on and obviously there’s still things going on at the league level that we’re in communication with. Ja’s fully engaged in this process and ready for whatever comes next after these 2 games.” -via Twitter @espn_macmahon / March 13, 2023
Ja Morant’s off-the-court troubles are having real-world consequences — including potentially putting a dent in the NBA superstar’s wallet. Coca-Cola’s Powerade pulled its ads featuring the 23-year-old point guard after the Memphis Grizzlies suspended him because he flashed a gun on social media during a wild night at a Denver-area strip joint, according to Sports Illustrated. It’s unclear whether the popular drink-maker has severed ties with Morant, but the company also stripped his likeness from the brand’s website. -via New York Post / March 13, 2023
