Second incident within three months, with the first resulting in an eight-game NBA suspension and $669,000 salary loss for Morant.
Unclear sanctions for the latest video, which was widely shared online.

The Grizzlies are aware of the situation and have taken action by suspending Morant.
Further updates and consequences for Morant are expected as more information is gathered.
