"Tennessee Police Perform Welfare Check on Grizzlies Star Ja Morant After Cryptic Social Media Messages"

Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant has found himself at the center of an unexpected media frenzy. Police conducted a welfare check after the All-Star posted cryptic messages to his Instagram story. According to the Shelby County Sheriff's Office, Morant is doing well and simply "taking a break from social media."

The messages and pictures posted by Morant included heartfelt comments such as "Love ya ma," "Love ya pops" and "You da greatest baby girl," followed by a post that ominously read, "Bye." This comes after Morant was suspended from all team activities earlier this year over a video of him holding a gun that circulated on social media.

He is also being sued by a high school prospect after a fight during a pickup game in his backyard. However, his five-year, $194 million max contract is still set to begin this season. As the Memphis Grizzlies' star player, he is a valuable asset to the team and you can be sure he will be looking to make up for his earlier mistakes.
