National Basketball Association issues suspensions, fines for Grizzlies-Knicks scuffle, Morris' comments

N.B.A. Suspends 3 Players Over Knicks-Grizzlies Squabble

Suspensions And Fines Were Handed Out For The Grizzlies-Knicks Scuffle

Marcus Morris spoke hard in the pre-season when the New York Knicks gave up their annual boast that things would change.

Grizzlies guard Marko Gudurick and forward Jaren Jackson Jr., along with Knicks guard Elfrid Payton, have been suspended for one game. The league stated in a press release that Guduric and Jackson have been suspended as a result of they left the bench throughout the incident.

Less than 24 hours later, the National Basketball Association weighed in with official discipline stemming from the incident, with a trio of players earning one-game suspensions and two others forced to pony up with fines.

Jean Carroll asking court for a DNA sample
Trump mentioned in June that Carroll was "completely mendacity" and he had "by no means met this particular person in my life ". Trump, a Republican, isn't the primary president to face the prospect of a DNA check associated to a girl's costume.

After that, it got worse when Payton said that he would do the same thing again and ridiculed Morris Crowder for playing with "female tendencies".

The fracas began close to the top of a contentious matchup, which the Knicks misplaced, 127-106. Elfrid Payton responded by shoving Crowder into a row of empty seats, sparking a scuffle between the two teams. Morris ran over and pushed Ja Morant, the star rookie for Memphis. "Again I apologize with my comments".

"While we do believe his apology was honest, that type of speech does not reflect the values of respect and inclusion that our organization stands for, and cannot be tolerated", the team said.

The Farcical Bruno Fernandes Negotiations Sum Up United's Problems
Manchester United's efforts to sign Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes has received a major boost. Pogba is now failing after an ankle surgery this month, but is expected to fail in February.

"First, I'll start off just apologizing deeply", Morris said.

"My comments were unnecessary and I wasn't even thinking when I was talking", he said in a brief statement, without taking questions.

Without Payton in the lineup, interim head coach Mike Miller will have to rely on a pair of third-year point guards. Smith was a massive disappointment this season, unable to take out Payton as a starter and not even outperforming Frank Ntilikina, who had a blow in the top 10 of the 2017 draft and none of them scored an average of 6 points in his three seasons. The Indiana Pacers will play host to the Knicks on Saturday night (7 p.m. ET).
