Ja Morant claims he has disappointed people that have supported him following the video that surfaced online as he take full accountability of his actions.

Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant has apologized after a video of him in possession of firearms surfaces online.

The players was suspended by the team pending the league office’s review of the video that surfaced over the weekend.

The Memphis Grizzlies superstar released a statement Tuesday night acknowledging the disappointment he has caused those who have supported him.

“I know I’ve disappointed a lot of people who have supported me,” Morant said in the statement. “This is a journey and I recognize there is more work to do. My words may not mean much right now, but I take full accountability for my actions. I’m committed to continuing to work on myself.”

NBA commissioner Adam Silver expressed his shock at seeing another social media video of Ja Morant holding a firearm

“Honestly, I was shocked when I saw this weekend that video,” Silver told ESPN’s Malika Andrews from the NBA’s draft lottery Tuesday in Chicago. “Now, we’re in the process of investigating it, and we’ll figure out exactly what happened to the best we can. The video is a bit grainy and all that, but I’m assuming the worst.”

Morant was previously suspended in March after he could be seen during an Instagram Live session holding up a handgun while intoxicated at a Denver-area club when the Grizzlies were in town to play the Nuggets.
