Morris (illness) will be available for Wednesday's contest against the Knicks and will presumably draw the start, which would push Kelly Oubre back to the bench, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. Morris missed the team's most recent game Saturday due to an illness, prompting Kelly Oubre to gain a starting role and see 39 minutes. But, with Morris back, Oubre will probably head back to the pine. Over his past 10 appearances, Morris has averaged 14.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and a combined 2.0 steals/blocks.
Morris (illness) is expected to play during Wednesday's contest against the Knicks, Zach Rosen of the Wizards' official site reports. Morris missed Saturday's contest against the Bulls, prompting Kelly Oubre to draw the start at small forward and see 39 minutes of action. But, it appears Morris will be available Wednesday, likely sending Oubre back to the pine. Over his past 10 appearances, Morris is posting 14.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and a combined 2.0 steals/blocks per contest.
Morris has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Bulls due to illness. Morris has also been dealing with a swollen hand the past few games, so the forward will get the night off with one game remaining on the schedule until the All-Star break. Kelly Oubre will get the start in his absence and Mike Scott and Jason Smith could also see some extra minutes off the bench as a result.
Morris did not practice Friday due to a swollen left hand, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports. Morris was dealing with a sprained left hand prior to Thursday's game against the Celtics, but he was able to play through it, logging 29 minutes in the overtime loss. The pain looks to be lingering though, so Morris should be considered questionable to play in Saturday's game against the Bulls. Expect another update once the team goes through shootaround in the morning.
Morris (wrist) will start Thursday against the Celtics. As expected, Morris will take the court Thursday night after spraining his left wrist Tuesday against the 76ers. Morris is averaging just under 29 minutes per game over the past month, but those numbers could take a slight dip Thursday if the Wizards choose to monitor the injury closely.
