Sources: Grizzlies get $12.4M exception for injured Ja Morant

According to ESPN, the National Basketball Association (NBA) granted the Memphis Grizzlies a $12.4 million   

injured player exception on Wednesday due to star guard Ja Morant's season-ending injury.  

According to the provisions of the exemption, the Grizzlies can either acquire a player in the final year of his contract or sign a player to a one-year contract.   

According to ESPN, the team has until March 11 to make use of the exception.  

Morant sustained a shoulder subluxation during practice earlier this month, which revealed a labral tear.   

An MRI was used to confirm the diagnosis. He needed surgery to bring the season to an end.  

Before the 2024-25 season, it is expected that Morant would have completely recovered from his injuries  

The two-time All-Star appeared in only nine games during the 2023-24 season, hence it will be remembered as a season he did not participate in.  

Since the start of the season, he has been ordered to serve a 25-game suspension owing to several instances of "conduct detrimental to the league."  

This was Morant's second time posing with a gun while a live-streamed video was being broadcast.
