Ja Morant’s NBA Season Cut Short by Shoulder Surgery

Ja Morant’s season is over. The Memphis Grizzlies star underwent shoulder surgery and will not return to the floor this season.

First Ja Morant missed 25 games due to off-field misconduct, now the NBA season has ended prematurely for the Memphis Grizzlies star just weeks after his return. The 24-year-old will not play again this season due to shoulder surgery, his franchise announced.

Due to “ongoing pain and instability,” the guard underwent an MRI scan and discovered a torn labrum, the Grizzlies said. The right shoulder is affected; Morant injured it in training last Saturday.

Morant returned to the floor on December 19th and the two-time All-Star shone with 34 points in the win over the New Orleans Pelicans (115:113). The NBA banned the professional for “conduct detrimental to the league” in the summer after he was repeatedly seen with weapons in social media posts.
