Wizards' Markieff Morris: Will miss six-to-eight weeks following surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris (abdomen) is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks after undergoing successful surgery to repair a sports hernia.

The timeline puts Morris' return sometime around early-to-mid November. That said, he's still standing trial for felony assault charges -- a situation which could end in league discipline if he's found guilty, possibly extending his absence. In any event, the Wizards will have to find a replacement starting power forward, with the most likely suitor being Otto Porter, who could slide one spot up in the lineup. That would create a void at small forward, which Kelly Oubre could fill nicely. The situation certainly puts Morris' fantasy value in flux, though assuming he's found innocent in the trial, he may only end up missing around 10 games.

Wizards' Markieff Morris: Expected to miss camp after sports hernia surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris will undergo sports hernia surgery Friday and is expected to miss training camp, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.

Morris, who is currently on trial facing felony assault charges, will now add sports hernia surgery on top of his busy offseason. He's dealt with the issue before, undergoing surgery for the same problem back in 2010 as a junior at Kansas. That year, he only missed preseason practices and went on to have the best season of his collegiate career. While that's somewhat promising, Morris is still expected to miss this year's training camp, with a more comprehensive timetable coming after the conclusion of the surgery. Even then, it's no guarantee he'll play if he's healthy, as the outcome of the trial could mean disciplinary action by the league if he's found guilty. If Morris ends up missing a chunk of the regular season, it seems likely the Wizards would slide Otto Porter up to power forward while inserting Kelly Oubre into the starting five at small forward.

Wizards' Markieff Morris: Could miss start of camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris could miss the start of training camp while standing trial in a 2015 assault case, CBS Sports reports.

Both Markieff and his twin brother Marcus were alleged to be involved in an assault that took place in Phoenix back when they were members of the Suns. While the details of the case are being disputed, there's a chance Morris could miss the first few days of training camp, which is set to begin Sept. 26, if the trial drags into the latter days of September. Perhaps more concerning, though, is the possibility that Morris could face legal punishment or discipline from the league if he's ultimately found guilty in the assault.
