It’s been a roller coaster of a time for the Memphis Grizzlies lately. While the team has found recent success, they have been without their best player Ja Morant.

With that in mind, it sounds like the superstar point guard has his eyes set on a return to the court soon. However, he’s not out of the mud just yet.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Ja Morant met with Adam Silver about returning to action soon. The Grizzlies’ point guard has officially left the counseling program in Florida and is ready to return to action.

Even so, the league is still conducting its investigation into the incident that took place in a strip club in Denver.

With that said, the league finally made its decision on Morant, per Woj. The Grizzlies superstar will officially be suspended for eight games before returning to the lineup.

What’s more interesting is that ESPN reports that the suspension includes the games Morant has already missed. So, he’s set to return to action on March 20.

Hopefully, Ja Morant has learned his lesson and stays out of trouble from here on out. If that’s the case, then the Grizzlies are back on track to being a powerhouse in the NBA.

If not, well, then there could still be a long journey ahead for the superstar point guard.

At the end of the day, this is exciting news for Memphis. Even so, many are still worried about Morant.

Despite some of the jokes people are making, Woj claims Ja Morant entered counseling shortly after he made the initial announcement to step away from the team. So, that’s give or take 10 days.

We just hope the best for Morant, as it would be a shame if his career fell short all due to his off-court antics.
