Ja Morant Fined $35K By NBA

Grizzlies All-Star point guard Ja Morant has been fined by the NBA to the tune of $35K, the league announced in a press statement (Twitter link).

The NBA’s press statement indicated that Morant is being penalized for “confronting and directing inappropriate language toward a game official and failing to live the court in a timely manner following his ejection.”

The All-NBA guard received a technical and was ejected with 1:22 left in the final frame of Memphis’s eventual 109-101 road loss to the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

Fine aside, the 6’3″ lead guard out of Murray State is having a terrific fourth season for the 13-9 Grizzlies thus far, averaging a career-high 28.2 PPG on .460/.366/.743 shooting splits. He is also chipping in 7.3 APG, 6.4 RPG, and 1.1 SPG for good measure.
