Morrow will come off the bench Friday in New York, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports. Morrow had been starting in place of the injured Kevin Durant, but the Thunder have opted to start Dion Waiters instead on Friday. It could potentially be the last game they have without Durant, so Morrow will try to take advantage of his extra minutes with the Thunder's backup rotation.
Morrow scored just two points (1-4 FG), grabbed four boards, and collected an assist and steal over 29 minutes in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies. Morrow has entered the starting lineup in place of Kevin Durant for each of the Thunder's last three games, but hasn't seen much usage on the team's offensive possessions. He's attempted just 16 shots during that span, providing a total of 14 points, with only two of those coming in his last two contests. Morrow has historically shown the ability to knock down some three-pointers, but with most possessions ending in the hands of Russell Westbrook, Morrow's offensive role will remain limited.
Morrow will get the start Friday versus Philadelphia, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports. This is an interesting decision with Kyle Singler and Dion Waiters both options as well. Morrow will look to fill in for Kevin Durant the best he can and attempt to earn minutes on future occasions.
