The Memphis Grizzlies faced point guard Ja Morant’s cryptic social media posts, which have since been deleted, prompting agents to conduct a wellness check on Wednesday.
A spokesperson for the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to Fox News Digital that following the social media posts and receiving inquiries about Morant, deputies went to the star’s home to check on her.
“Shelby County Sheriff’s Office deputies checked Ja Morant at his residence this morning and he is doing well. He informed us that she is taking a break from social media,” the spokesperson said.

Morant’s Instagram Stories caused concern when she posted photos of her mother, father, and daughter, showing her love for them, and later posted a fourth story with the caption «Goodbye.» with a photo of him doing an interview on the pitch.
Morant has been in the spotlight once again after his latest incident in which he displayed a firearm on social media. Morant’s friend Davonte Pack, who has been involved in off-court incidents in the past, was doing an Instagram Live and Morant was seen briefly displaying the firearm before Pack quickly moved the camera away.

The Grizzlies immediately suspended Morant from all team activities pending the NBA’s investigation into the matter. Commissioner Adam Silver told ESPN on the night of the NBA Draft that he expected the worst, although the investigation was still ongoing.
“I know that I have disappointed many people who have supported me. This is a journey and I recognize there is more work to be done,» Morant said in a statement obtained by Fox News Digital. «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 was suspended last season after an earlier incident at a Denver nightclub where he displayed a firearm on his own Instagram Live. He ended up checking into a Florida stress management clinic after that case, while meeting with Silver, who said Morant seemed remorseful.
«I just have to be better with my decision making,» Morant said.
