Ja Morant's 25-game NBA punishment, including his off-court scandals.  

Ja Morant, the star player for the Memphis Grizzlies, has been suspended by the NBA for 25 games, or almost one-third of the upcoming season.   

This is his second suspension of the year, and it happened after it seemed like he was carrying a gun in another video. This event bore similarities to the one that resulted in his initial eight-game suspension.   

NBA commissioner Adam Silver issued a statement saying, "Ja Morant's decision to once again wield a firearm on social media is alarming and disconcerting given his similar conduct in March for which he was already suspended eight games."   

Morant will have to pay $7.6 million for the punishment.
