After a troubling video showed Ja Morant flashing a gun, Nike released a statement saying they will “support” Morant despite the hot water he finds himself in with the NBA.
The 23-year-old Grizzlies guard will miss two games after an Instagram live video went viral of Morant at an unnamed strip club holding up a handgun with his left hand, the team announced on Saturday.
