Ja Morant Doing 'Good' After 2nd Gun Incident, Says Teammate Jaren Jackson Jr.

Ja Morant is doing “good” as his fate hangs in the balance after again flashing a gun on social media … so says teammate Jaren Jackson Jr. who believes the Grizzlies superstar will come back with a vengeance!

“He’s good,” 23-year-old Jackson said Monday on Paul George‘s podcast.

“He’s I think just growing up with this much attention on you, especially being this young. It’s a lot to deal with.”

Of course, Morant, outside a short, prepared statement, has been silent since the controversial video … a moment Jaren clearly believes doesn’t accurately portray the 23-year-old NBA superstar.

“Dude’s great. People always gotta understand that everybody human. That’s my brother though, no matter what. I stand my brother and I think that’s the lesson everybody should take away from this.”

Morant’s going to be suspended — the only question is for how long. After the Denver-area strip club incident, the NBA sat Ja down for eight games. The incoming punishment will presumably be much more severe.

But, Jackson — who’s played with Morant since 2019 — wholeheartedly believes Ja will come back with a chip on his shoulder, and be better than ever.

“He works hard. He’s smart as hell. He should’ve been MVP the other year,” Jackson says, adding … “The dude is high-level.”

NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced the league will impose discipline on Morant after the NBA Finals have concluded.
