When asked about Marcus Morris Sr.’s availability for Tuesday night’s season-opener, Clippers head coach Ty Lue didn’t really have an update.
“We don’t know as of right now.”
So far, Morris Sr. hasn’t made an appearance yet this preseason, as he’s dealing with a sore right knee. With the season just a few days away and no real gameplay under his belt, I would lean towards the side of him not playing on Tuesday. It’s a long season, no need to rush him back. Just make sure he gets healthy.
This offseason, Morris Sr. and the Clippers agreed to a four-year, $64 million contract, keeping him in Los Angeles for some time. His numbers took a hit when he came over to LA last season, but once he got to the bubble he looked like the player the Clippers traded for.
- Serge Ibaka and Patrick Patterson had “full practice” today. Ibaka also practiced yesterday. Certainly good news ahead of Tuesday’s game.
- Paul George talked about the fact that him and Kawhi Leonard are both healthy at the start of camp this year, unlike last season. Says that it will definitely be an advantage.
