Ja Morant of the Memphis Grizzlies flashed a gun on Instagram Live on Saturday night while in a car with pals.
Morant danced with friends in the passenger seat. The companion holding the phone snatched it away from the Grizzly's point guard and pointed it toward his shoulder when he seemed to bring the gun out for the camera.
Morant's weapon photo went viral. Digital didn't hear back from the Grizzlies. Fox News Digital received no response from Morant's reps.
Several allegations against Morant have dominated the season. In a Denver nightclub earlier this year, he was observed flashing a gun.
He was suspended eight games in March and entered a stress management center. Morant said the off-court incidents may have distracted the Grizzlies after they were ousted from the playoffs.
"I've just got to be better with my decision-making," Morant told ESPN last month. "That's about it. Our company was affected by off-court difficulties. "More discipline."
One of several concerns surfaced. After an altercation between Morant's associates and the Pacers in January, a red laser was pointed at the team from an SUV transporting Morant, which the Pacers feared was a pistol. The NBA concluded no "individual threatened others with a weapon."
After striking a teenager last summer, Morant was accused of exposing a pistol in March.
The Washington Post reported that Morant punched the boy "12 to 13 times" in the head during a casual basketball game at his house.
After the fight, Morant went home and emerged with a revolver in his waist and his hand on it, the report said.
