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.

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.

Morris left Monday's game against the Jazz after suffering the neck injury. His status Wednesday will depend on how he is feeling closer to tip-off. Patrick Patterson could see a return to the rotation should he ultimately sit out.
Morris is doubtful to return to Monday's game against the Jazz after leaving the game with neck soreness, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Morris managed just eight minutes Monday before being forced to leave with neck soreness. If he is unable to return, he should be considered questionable for Wednesday against the Nets.
Morris tallied 12 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, and one assist in 17 minutes during Friday's 118-110 loss to the Clippers.
Morris played well off the bench for the Thunder on Friday, helping keep things close down the stretch. He has struggled to have any real fantasy value since moving to Oklahoma City and the fact he only played 17 minutes with many of the starting unit in foul trouble, does not bode well for things moving forward. He can be left on the waivers in all competitive formats at this stage.
Morris will come off the bench Saturday against the Spurs.
Morris started in place of Paul George (shoulder) during OKC's previous contest, but coach Billy Donovan will opt to give Dennis Schroder the starting nod this time around. Since joining the Thunder, Morris is averaging 8.3 points and 3.8 rebounds across 17.5 minutes.
Morris finished with 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and a steal over 37 minutes in the Thunder's loss to the 76ers on Thursday.
Morris came out strong in his fourth game in Oklahoma City, and he seems to be recovering well from his neck surgery. He's been a welcomed addition to Billy Donovan and company, but his general fantasy production is best reserved for deeper leagues.
Morris will start at small forward Thursday against Philadelphia, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Morris will take the place of Paul George, who has been ruled out Thursday due to shoulder soreness. Morris is just returning from an extended absence himself, as he missed 20 games with a neck injury. In his first three contests back from injury, he's averaging 5.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.0 assist.
Morris ended with 10 points (2-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), eight rebounds, and two blocks in 20 minutes during Saturday's 119-116 loss to the Kings.
Morris played 20 minutes in his second game for the Thunder, finishing with 10 points and eight rebounds. Many of the starters appeared flat after Friday's double-overtime game meaning Morris was able to increase his playing time. His role will likely be to backup Jerami Grant as an energy player off the bench, which is going to make it hard to have any value outside of deeper formats.
Morris (neck) played 17 minutes off the bench Friday in the Thunder's 148-147 double-overtime win over the Jazz, finishing with zero points (0-1 FG), two assists and one steal.
Morris checked into the contest in the first quarter in what amounted to his first appearance Dec. 26 after a nearly two-month recovery from neck surgery. Perhaps as a result of the long layoff as well as his limited practice time with his new team, Morris played a more muted role during his time on the court. As he becomes further removed from the injury and gains familiarity with his teammates, Morris should gradually settle in as the second-unit scoring threat he was for the Wizards earlier in the campaign.
Morris (neck) fully participated in Thursday's practice, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Morris had been battling a neck injury since just after Christmas, but he appears to be fully recovered coming out of the All-Star break. The versatile forward, who hasn't played since Dec. 26, signed with the Thunder a week ago and could make his debut as early as Friday night against Utah. Morris will likely come off the bench behind Jerami Grant, and his addition could spell the end of Patrick Patterson's time in the regular rotation.
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 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.
Morris has been diagnosed with transient cervical neuropraxia, and he will be limited to non-contact basketball activities for the next six weeks. After that period, he is expected to be cleared for a return to full basketball activities.
Morris began to experience neck and upper back stiffness after taking a hit to the chin during a game against the Lakers on Dec. 16, and he aggravated the injury again Dec. 26 against the Pistons. As a result, he'll need to avoid basketball activities for over a month, which could place his return after the All-Star break. While he's absent, Jeff Green, Trevor Ariza and Sam Dekker remain candidates to see extra run.
