Grow taller

Patient : Hello,my name is Jahmil and i am 18 and 5'9. My mom is around 5'4 and my dad is 5'9, but my cousins are all around 6'1. i was wondering if i am done growing or if i will have a late growth spurt, or if i will gain some inches from my family members? if there is anything i can do to increase my height please let me know. Thank You. P.S. i am a great athlete with an NBA dream, so adding a few more inches would help me out alot!!
