Morris has agreed to a two-year contract with the Pistons for the bi-annual exception, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Morris saw his role reduced significantly last season, garnering his fewest minutes per game since his rookie year. Though he struggled shooting the ball, Morris still provided value as a rebounder. It's possible he'll be able to find his touch again in a new environment. Morris will presumably back up Blake Griffin at power forward, and he could see some minutes as a small-ball center.
Morris had eight points (3-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt), five rebounds, and one steal in 17 minutes during Saturday's 110-88 loss to the Warriors. Morris has amassed eight points across 17 minutes in each of the last two contests, contributing nearly identical stat lines. He has had some good games here and there since joining the Thunder in late February, but thus far Morris hasn't been able to earn enough minutes to make a consistent impact outside of deeper formats.
Morris (neck) will be active and could play Thursday against the Pacers, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports. Morris was initially listed as out by the Thunder, but he'll end up being a true game-time call. "He's trying to play. I think he feels considerably better than he did yesterday," stated head coach Billy Donovan. Morris will go through pregame warmups before being reevaluated, at which point his status will be revealed.
Morris (neck) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Pacers, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports. A neck injury cost Morris a chunk of time earlier this season, and the issue appears to have resurfaced of late. Thursday will mark his second straight absence after he was held out of Wednesday's win over the Nets.
Morris (neck) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Nets, Royce Young of ESPN.com reports. After undergoing pregame warm-ups, Morris' neck was still bothering him too much to play Wednesday. In his absence, Patrick Patterson could see an increased role. Morris should be considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Pacers.
