When will Ja Morant return to represent the Grizzlies?

Due to the suspension imposed on Morant, he will be out of action for the first 25 games of the 2023-2024 season. As the self-proclaimed Black Jesus was involved in a gun-related incident for the second time, the NBA decided to ban the 2x All-Star. So, as a result of the ban, Morant is forced to be a spectator during the 2023 In-Season Tournament. Not only would he not be playing, he would be deprived of more than $7 million in income as a result of his punishment.

The one positive side for Morant and Memphis supporters is that the ban is just temporary. Morant is expected to make his much-anticipated comeback on December 19th against the New Orleans Pelicans. The fans are eagerly waiting for Morant to make his comeback as he holds the power to resurrect the Grizzlies. After being in the spotlight for negative reasons, he finally has the opportunity to make up for lost time. All eyes are on Ja Morant’s return, as he could lead the Grizzlies to new heights.
