Morris is expected to compete on the second team backing up starting NY forwards Kevin Knox and Julius Randle. According to a report from Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, Morris faces a possible regular season suspension for his actions.
He shot a solid 6-of-13 (46.2%) from the field and went 2-of-6 (33.3%) from beyond the arc, while only contributing two turnovers to the team's 15 - impressive, considering the number of minutes he played. If that was regular season I wouldn't have done that.
Despite losing Morris early in the game, the Knicks defeated the Wizards 104-99. I've got to be smart, set a better example.
