The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office sent police to Ja Morant’s home Wednesday for a welfare check after the Grizzlies star’s social media posts, according to TMZ Sports.
Citing a spokesperson for the mayor’s office, TMZ reports that Morant told officers “he’s been taking a break from social media.”
“He’s fine,” the spokesperson told TMZ.
The sheriff’s office was unable to confirm TMZ’s reporting when The Post reached it.
Morant, who was caught on Instagram Live with a gun for the second time in three months 11 days ago, posted pictures of himself with his family via his Instagram story.
He ended the slideshow with a caption saying, “Bye.”
The posts were later deleted.
In his only public comment since the second video came to light, Morant issued a statement last Tuesday saying, “I know I have disappointed a lot of people who have supported me. This is a journey and I realize there is more work to be done.
“My words may not mean much right now, but I take full responsibility for my actions. I am committed to continuing to work on myself.”
Morant, 23, first filmed himself in an Instagram Live video holding a gun on March 4 while at Shotgun Willie strip club in Glendale, Colorado, after losing to the Nuggets in Denver.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, who suspended Morant eight games over the first video, said on ESPN’s draft lottery broadcast that he was “shocked” and that the league was investigating the latest incident.
The commissioner also said he “assumes the worst,” and the Grizzlies have suspended Morant from all team activities.
