Former NBA star Isaiah Thomas has joked Ja Morant keeps being drug tested because he “jumps too high,” emphasizing the Memphis Grizzlies guard’s stunning form.

Morant, 23, claimed he was checked for illegal substances for the seventh time this season after Monday’s 136-106 win over the Phoenix Suns.

Morant logged 29 points and seven assists, going 5-for-8 (62.5%) from beyond the arc to lead the Grizzlies to a victory against the Suns.

The game came after the former No. 2 pick pulled off two outrageous dunks the week before.

The guard first posterized Jakob Poeltl, a 7-foot-1 San Antonio Spurs center with a one-handed jam.

He then did the same to Indiana Pacers big man Jalen Smith, coming up with a strong candidate for the dunk of the year.

As Morant keeps pouring in buckets and coming up with highlight plays, the NBA is seemingly feeling obliged to make sure he isn’t using performance-enhancing drugs.

“Been drug tested like 6 times this season. Walked in the arena and found out I got another one today,” he tweeted the day after the Grizzlies beat the Suns.

A few hours later, Thomas retweeted Morant’s tweet and joked he might know why the league keeps bothering the former Murray State standout.

“Jumping too high killa!” the former Boston Celtics star wrote.

“That s–t ain’t real what we seeing lol. Well it’s real in your world haha.”

And NBA fans agreed with Thomas as they commented on Morant’s tweet.

One wrote: “[The drug tests] are basically MVP votes. It is a compliment in the most backwards way possible. Yet still a compliment.”

Another tweeted: “Price of being to awesome.”

A third added: “It’s gotta be flattering though. You’re balling out so crazy they think you’re on drugs.”

And another wrote: “They said the way he’s jumping he either on something or hot springs in his shoes.”

Morant’s spectacular dunks have seemingly given the young guard lots of confidence.

“Jump with me if you want to go viral,” the Grizzlies All-Star tweeted after his one-jam slam against the Pacers.

Morant is averaging 27.5 points, 7.9 assists, and 5.7 rebounds over 36 games in 2022-23.

Morant came up with two strong candidates for the dunk of the year award last week, one of which put Indiana Pacers forward Jalen Smith on a poster
