MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant filed a countersuit against a teen who accused him of assault.

The assault report alleged that the Grizzlies point guard beat a 17-year-old boy in July of 2022.

According to the report, the victim told deputies that he was assaulted while playing basketball at Morant’s house. The victim alleges Morant got angry and “jumped him,” striking him in the head and face with a closed fist.

The countersuit claims Morant is the victim of slander, battery and assault.
