Morris has agreed to a contract with the Thunder, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Morris, who was released by the Pelicans on Feb 7., was given clearance by doctors earlier this week to play. In joining the Thunder, Morris figures to slot in as a reserve frontcourt option, even potentially playing some small-ball center for OKC in matchups that dictate the change. He might struggle to find the 26.0 minutes per game he was seeing with Washington earlier in the year considering the impressive play of Jerami Grant at power forward, but Morris could be worth a speculative add in a variety of fantasy formats.
Morris (neck) has been cleared to play, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports. Morris has been out since Dec. 28 due to a neck injury, but he's been given clearance to play after visiting with a specialist in Los Angeles on Monday. The veteran forward is still a free agent after getting let go by the Pelicans earlier in the month, but he shouldn't out of work much longer now that he's able to play. Prior to getting hurt, Morris was averaging 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 26.0 minutes.
Morris (neck) was released by the Pelicans on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Morris was traded to the Pelicans on Wednesday in exchange for Wesley Johnson, but he's been sidelined because of a neck injury since the end of December. He's expected to seek a second opinion on the issue in the near future, although a timetable for his return to health remains unclear. It's possible that the injury will hold him out for the remainder of the season, especially after hitting the open market.
Morris will seek a second opinion on his neck injury, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports. Morris was diagnosed with transient cervical neuropraxia in early January and ruled out six weeks, but there have been no updates on his condition. It seems there is concern that the big man could be dealing with something more serious, and he could be out for a longer period of time. More information should arrive after he sees another specialist.
Morris (neck) was traded to the Pelicans on Wednesday in exchange for Wesley Johnson, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Morris hasn't played since Dec. 26 and isn't expected to resume on-court activity until after the All-Star break while he recovers from transient cervical neuropraxia. Even if Morris is able to gain clearance to play for New Orleans at some point, he could have a tough time securing minutes in a deep frontcourt, especially if Anthony Davis stays put prior to Thursday's trade deadline. Morris' new landing spot and unclear timeline for a return makes it tough to justify holding him in most fantasy leagues.
