Ja Morant has been summoned to testify in a civil case.

According to court records obtained by ESPN, subpoenas have been issued for Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant and members of his family to appear and testify at an upcoming court hearing for a civil action in Memphis.

Morant is accused of abusing a teenager during a pickup basketball game at his home near Memphis in July 2022, according to a lawsuit filed more than a year ago.

An immunity hearing is set to begin Dec. 11 at the Shelby County Circuit Court in Memphis, where Morant's lawyers will argue that he was acting in self-defense when he punched Joshua Holloway, then 17, after Holloway hit Morant in the jaw with a basketball. 

The hearing is scheduled to go until December 13 and possibly into the following week. A trial might begin as early as April 2024.

Morant has yet to appear in court. His own attorney would interrogate him under oath, and Holloway's attorney, Rebecca Adelman, would cross-examine him.

"On behalf of Joshua, we are preparing and will be ready for the hearing," Adelman was quoted as saying by ESPN.

The Grizzlies did not respond to requests for comment. Morant's attorneys did not respond quickly to a request for comment.

Morant's testimony would come roughly a week before he is allowed to return to action for the Grizzlies on Dec. 19 after serving his 25-game suspension for flashing a weapon in a video that surfaced in May.
