Morris posted 21 points (8-12 FG, 3-4 3pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and two steals across 32 minutes in Thursday's 111-98 win over the Pacers.
Morris was aggressive on the boards Thursday and tied with Martin Gortat for a team-leading seven rebounds. While he's not known for the long jumper, he went 3-for-4 from beyond the arc against a Pacers team that ranks 25th against defending threes. That stat held water Thursday as Indiana yielded 15 triples to the Wizards in a game where they trailed from the tip-off. Morris' reliability has been integral to the Wizards' winning ways over the past month and can be equally dependable with impressive stat lines in Washington's fast-paced offense.
Morris scored 23 points (8-14 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT) to go along with six rebounds, two steals and one assist across 32 minutes during Monday's 120-98 win over the Thunder.
Morris led all scorers in a game that was scarcely competitive, connecting on 57 percent of his shot attempts and going perfect from downtown. He is averaging 24.5 points, eight rebounds, three treys and 1.5 steals in two games since returning from a calf injury and appears to be fully healthy heading into Thursday's matchup with the Pacers.
Morris (calf) returned to the court and recorded 26 points (11-18 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and one steal across 31 minutes during a 112-107 win over the Pacers on Friday.
After a one-game absence, Morris returned in a big way with a season-high 26 points, which tied John Wall for a team high. He also tallied a double-double and matched a season high with three three-pointers made. It's safe to assume that the calf injury isn't something to worry about going forward after this performance.
Morris was sidelined for Wednesday's overtime victory over the Nets due to the sore right calf, but it was apparently never viewed as a major issue. The forward indicated he was only held out for precautionary reasons Wednesday, and with some added time off to recover from the injury, he should take back his spot in the starting five and face no restrictions Friday. Kelly Oubre, who provided zero points in 33 minutes in a starting roel Wednesday, will presumably shift back to the bench.
Morris has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Nets with a calf injury.
When exactly Morris suffered from a calf injury, or how serious it is, is currently unknown, so consider the power forward questionable for Friday's game against the Pacers. In his absence, Kelly Oubre will get the start and likely see a heavier dose of minutes with the Wizards going to smaller lineups. In the only other game Oubre started this season, he played 40 minutes and recorded 15 points and six rebounds.
