March 6 (UPI) -- Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant has no timetable to return amid an NBA investigation into a video he posted, which showed him holding what appeared to be a gun at a nightclub, coach Taylor Jenkins told reporters.
Jenkins spoke about the incident before the Grizzlies lost to the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday in Los Angeles. The Grizzlies announced Saturday that Morant would be "away from the team" for "at least the next two games."

"There is not a definitive timeline," Jenkins told reporters. "We've said it's going to be at least these next two games. We are taking it day at a time. This is going to be an ongoing healing process.
"I can't comment in terms of what the exact timetable is going to be because it's really not a timetable situation."

Morant posted the video of himself early Saturday on Instagram, hours after the Grizzlies lost to the Denver Nuggets on Friday in Denver. He held what appeared to be a gun in his left hand, while rapping along with background music. Morant later deactivated his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Morant also issued an apology Saturday through his agents.
