Though he’s off the court, Morant is reportedly still in contact with his teammates and active on the Grizzlies’ group chat. In addition, ESPN said he’s spoken to a few of his fellow Grizzlies on the phone.
“His spirit has been great so far when I have spoken to him,” Grizzlies point guard Tyus Jones told ESPN. “It’s a unique time. There comes times in life when you’ve got to put yourself first before your family, before basketball, before a lot of other stuff, and I don’t know if a lot of guys have ever done that. It’s a time where he’s getting to put himself first, and I think he’s taken advantage of that. I hope he’s taking advantage of that, and it will be good for him.”
