More on Marcus Morris Injury

Marc D'Amico: #NEBHInjuryReport: Daniel Theis (broken nose) is questionable for Wednesday night's game against the Miami Heat. Marcus Morris (sore knee) is ruled out.
“Really hoping to play Christmas [against the Washington Wizards],” he said before Friday night’s game against the Utah Jazz. “Maybe a game before that just to get warmed to it. I will probably be on limited minutes.” Morris said he still doesn’t know the source of the pain, which began shortly after he arrived at training camp upon being found not guilty in his assault trial in Arizona. He said it was almost pain-free when he sustained a bruise that forced him out of the lineup.
Marc D'Amico: Jaylen Brown (eye) will play tonight, according to Brad Stevens. Marcus Morris (knee) will go through his pre-game warmups with the hope of playing. #NEBHInjuryReport
Steve Bulpett: Jaylen Brown (eye) and Marcus Morris (knee) were both on the Celtics' flight here to San Antonio. They're listed as questionable for tomorrow night's game against the Spurs.

A. Sherrod Blakely: Marcus Morris will likely have his minutes continue to be restricted through the end of this month. Still no word if he will continue to not play in back-to backs. @NBCSCeltics
Steve Bulpett: Strange that Marcus and Markieff Morris coming back from injury on same night? Marcus: "You got a better chance of hitting the lottery."
Jay King: Marcus Morris said his knee has "come along really well." He's gonna play whenever the training staff believes he's ready.
Boston Celtics forward Marcus Morris is expected to miss at least the first week of the regular season due to right knee soreness, according to head coach Brad Stevens. Stevens said Morris has been dealing with the issue since arriving to training camp. He is expected to undergo reevaluation sometime within the next 10-14 days.
With Morris out, Stevens hinted the Celtics will likely start rookie Jayson Tatum against the Cleveland Cavaliers. There could be bench minutes available in Boston's frontcourt.

NBA scout: Utah a first-round exit away from Donovan Mitchell going to New York

The incessant buzz around the league is that there are those in Mitchell’s circle who believe he is too big of a star for Salt Lake City. Further, some say it’s only a matter of time before he joins former Creative Artists Agency agent and current New York Knicks president Leon Rose “They’re a first-round exit from Donovan being in New York,” an Eastern Conference scout said.

Adrian Wojnarowski: James Harden has repeatedly told management, ownership, you know, those in the organization that he is committed to being a Net that he wants to win a championship there and, and more than that, the Big Three in Brooklyn, Kevin Durant, James Harden, Kyrie Irving… What they say publicly, they also say privately, which is, when they’re together, they believe they’re unstoppable and that the Nets are going to get that group back.
Harden can opt out of the 2022-23 season to become a free agent and sign elsewhere or the Nets could agree to a sign-and-trade deal in which Harden opts into the final year of his contract with plans to sign a long-term deal with his new team in 2023. ESPN’s front-office insider Bobby Marks projects only the Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic and San Antonio Spurs to have cap space this offseason.

Aron Baynes not playing this season

As much as NBL teams would love to have Baynes clogging up the key, Hoops Heaven reached out to the Baynes camp and was told he is still hard at work building up his body and won’t be playing for anyone this season. Baynes has all his focus on playing in the NBA next season and isn’t considering the NBL. NBA teams would love to have a rim defender and rebounder of Baynes’ quality next season; let’s hope he can regain the match fitness and strength to make this a reality.
