Additionally, Morant’s career has so far been a promising one in terms of his playing. The Grizzlies star has numerous awards to his name. Notably, he was named Rookie of the Year, Rookie of the Month thrice, 2x Player of the Week, etc. This current season was disappointing, as he was suspended for 25 games. However, he is expected to be back by December 19.
The lookalike of Ja Morant is Chaunce Jenkins
It turns out that the lookalike of Ja Morant, who is also deemed to be his brother, is Chaunce Jenkins. He is currently playing for Old Dominion University at the guard position. Before joining the roaster of ODU in 2022, Jenkins was a key player for the basketball team at Wichita State University. Notably, he has proved to be a key player on the team ever since high school.
Furthermore, he was born in Virginia to his proud parents, Demeka Yarborough and Cecil Jenkins. The jersey number 2 has collected a long list of awards and recognitions in his high school and college career. Some of these are 2x WSU Varsity Letterman, named Third Team All-Sun Belt Conference, etc. Additionally, his career stats stand at an impressive 17.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.7 assists.
Who is Ja Morant’s sister?
The fans might be disappointed knowing that Ja Morant does not have a brother named Za Morant. However, he does come from a family of basketball players who have left their mark. He was born to Tee and Jamie Morant, who played the sport during their college years. While neither of the two played it professionally, they gave the basketball world, Ja Morant, who is undeniably a star.
Furthermore, the Grizzlies guard has a sister named Teniya Morant, who is five years younger than him. Teniya, who is fondly known as ‘Niya’, is a basketball player at Mississippi Valley State University. Her basketball gene and her discipline have made her a key player on the team. Even though she is not as tall as his other family members, it doesn’t stop her from dominating the field.

Despite being compared to Ja Morant more often than not, she has expressed that Teniya wants to be her own person at the end of the day. Fans are expecting to see Ja’s only sibling, Teniya, make her debut in the WNBA and, hopefully, Chaunce Jenkins in the NBA, who was assumed to be Ja Morant’s brother.
