Coach Erik Spoelstra said Morris (conditioning) practiced Tuesday, but there's no update on when he might play again, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Morris has been sidelined since Nov. 8. First, he was out due to a neck injury suffered during a blindside blow from Nikola Jokic, but more recently, he's been absent due to a stint in COVID-19 protocols. The veteran forward's neck issue isn't listed on the injury report anymore, but he remains out due to conditioning concerns. Given Spoelstra's comments, it would be surprising to see Morris suit up during the Heat's upcoming three-game week.
Morris (conditioning) is out Sunday against the Lakers. Morris still needs to work on his conditioning. After Sunday, the Heat don't play until Wednesday. It seems possible Morris' conditioning could be up to speed by then.
Morris (conditioning) won't travel with the team for Friday's game against the Hawks, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports. Morris cleared the COVID-19 health and safety protocols late last week but continues to work on his conditioning. The 32-year-old missed 30 straight games due to neck issues prior to entering the protocols Jan. 10.
Morris (conditioning) won't play Wednesday against Portland. Morris will remain on the sidelines as he continues to work on his conditioning after exiting COVID-19 protocols this past Friday. Prior to entering the protocols, Morris had missed 30 consecutive games with neck soreness, but he appears to have moved past that injury. His next opportunity to potentially make his return will come Friday against the Hawks.
