TMZ Posts Video Allegedly of Grizzlies' Ja Morant Using Lighter Resembling Gun

After Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant was suspended for 25 games by the NBA on Friday for a second incident of displaying a pistol on Instagram Live,

TMZ obtained video reportedly showing Morant holding a lighter mimicking a gun that was recorded after the live feed.

According to TMZ, Morant allegedly recorded himself carrying the lighter "back on May 14 in an effort to

show his family and friends that he did not have a real firearm during his now-infamous Instagram Live [session].

It has not been confirmed that the video features Morant, however TMZ recognized Morant's distinct tattoos on the forearm.

The video shows only one hand utilizing the lighter, which was reportedly provided "to those close to

[Morant] after they had questioned why he was seen brandishing a firearm in a social media video yet again."

Morant has never publicly admitted that the gun he was seen holding in a May 13 social media video was not a real handgun

The incident occurred roughly two months after he was suspended for eight games following an Instagram Live video in which he was seen brandishing a weapon in a Denver nightclub
