A while ago, some shocking revelations emerged about Ja’s physical altercation with a 17-year-old boy. Many claimed that the victim even filed a lawsuit against the NBA player. For those who don’t know, Ja punched the young boy after a basketball game between the pair went horribly wrong.
Ja Morant’s off-the-court antics land him in trouble once again
According to TMZ, Morant got into a verbal altercation which later led the player to punch the boy with a “closed fist.” When the young teenager filed the lawsuit, Morant claimed that it was an act of defense and that it was an accident. However, as recent reports suggest, it looks like Ja may have landed himself in quite a lot of trouble if these rumors are true.

The Washington Post reported that Ja pointed a gun at the teenager after punching him “12-13” times during the fight. As per Molly Hensley-Clancy, Ja “re-emerged with a gun visible in the waistband of his pants and his hand on the weapon” when he was coming out of his house.
It is not confirmed whether these reports are true and we do not know if Ja will address them soon. However, it will be heartbreaking for fans to find out that his career could be at stake if the crimes he’s accused of are proven to be true. The 17-year-old boy’s identity has not been disclosed. It is understandable considering his age and the fact that the case is in the middle of an investigation.
Ja is undoubtedly a talented player and fans would be hoping that these are just rumors. The Grizzlies are performing well on the court, and they would certainly need Ja to go all the way.
