Heat's Markieff Morris: Available Monday

Morris (illness) is available for Monday's Game 1 against the 76ers, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports. Morris was dealing with a non-COVID illness and was listed as questionable ahead of Game 1, but the veteran will be available off the bench. However, even when healthy, he hasn't cracked Miami's rotation, so his availability shouldn't impact much.

Heat's Markieff Morris: Dealing with non-COVID illness

Morris is questionable for Monday's Game 1 against the 76ers due to a non-COVID illness, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Morris dealt with a hip issue during the Heat's opening-round series, but despite being available, he didn't crack the rotation. The veteran's potential absence shouldn't impact Miami's rotation.

Heat's Markieff Morris: Good to go Friday

Morris (hip) is available for Friday's Game 3 at Atlanta, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports. As expected, Morris will be available despite the questionable designation. That said, he hasn't been a part of the rotation in the first two games of the series.

Heat's Markieff Morris: Questionable Friday

Morris (hip) is questionable for Friday's Game 3 at Atlanta. Morris was deemed available for Games 1 and 2 but didn't play, and the same situation could play out for Game 3. Even if he does see the floor, he likely won't be out there long enough to make an impact in fantasy.

Heat's Markieff Morris: Available Tuesday

Morris (hip) is available for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Hawks, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Morris was cleared to play in Sunday's Game 1 but didn't see the floor during the blowout win. Given how well the Heat played Sunday, it seems unlikely they will adjust their rotation Tuesday, so Morris' availability won't have much of an impact on how Game 2 plays out.

Heat's Markieff Morris: Listed as questionable

Morris (hip) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 2 against Atlanta. Morris was cleared to play in Sunday's Game 1 but didn't end up seeing the floor in the blowout win. He's apparently still dealing with some discomfort in his left hip, but the veteran is currently not a part of Miami's rotation, so his status won't have much of an effect on how Game 2 plays out.

Heat's Markieff Morris: Ready to go Sunday

Morris (hip) will warm up with the intention of playing Sunday in Game 1 of the Heat's first-round playoff series with the Hawks. One of five players listed as questionable or probable in advance of the Heat's postseason opener, Morris should be good to go as long as his hip doesn't prove too bothersome during pregame warmups. Though he's ostensibly healthy heading into Game 1, Morris isn't a safe bet to be included in head coach Erik Spoelstra's rotation.

Heat's Markieff Morris: Questionable for Game 1

Morris (hip) is questionable for Sunday's Game 1 against the Hawks, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. A hip injury has kept Morris out for seven of the past eight games. If he's out for Game 1, more minutes could go to Caleb Martin, Duncan Robinson and Max Strus.

Heat's Markieff Morris: Won't play Sunday

Heat's Markieff Morris: Questionable for finale

Morris (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against Orlando. Morris played through his hip injury Friday against Atlanta but continues to deal with the issue ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale. Duncan Robinson and Bam Adebayo should see increased run if Morris is out.

Heat's Markieff Morris: Questionable for Friday

Morris (hip) is questionable for Friday's game against the Hawks. The Heat's injury report has been a complete mess of late, so it's very much unclear how many of the six players listed as questionable for Friday are truly injured. Morris was most recently listed as available for Tuesday's game against Charlotte but then did not end up dressing for the contest.

Heat's Markieff Morris: In street clothes despite listing

Morris, who was officially listed as available for Tuesday's game against the Hornets, is on the bench in a hat and T-shirt, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports. He is dealing with a hip flexor injury. Unless the NBA suddenly and drastically relaxes its uniform policy, Morris isn't actually...

Heat's Markieff Morris: Intends to play Tuesday

Morris (hip) is expected to play Tuesday against the Hornets, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Morris is officially listed as questionable, but barring no setbacks in warmups, the veteran forward will likely be available for a second straight contest. With Jimmy Butler and P.J. Tucker both out, he drew his first start of the season during Sunday's win over the Raptors, but with both of the aforementioned forwards expected to be back in the lineup Tuesday, Morris will likely revert to his typical bench role.

Heat's Markieff Morris: Available Tuesday

Morris (hip) is available for Tuesday's game against the Hornets. As expected, Morris will play, but he'll come off the bench with the Heat's frontcourt healthy. Across his past seven appearances, he's averaged 7.4 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 16.0 minutes.

Heat's Markieff Morris: Dealing with hip issue

Morris is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Hornets due to a hip flexor strain, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports. Morris drew his first start of the season Sunday and totaled 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt) across 26 minutes. However, he presumably picked up the hip issue as well and is now one of six Heat players listed as questionable for Tuesday.

Heat's Markieff Morris: Making first start of season

Morris will start Sunday's game against the Raptors. With Jimmy Butler (toe) and P.J. Tucker (knee) out, Morris will have an opportunity to make his first start of the season. The veteran forward missed significant time from November through mid-March, but he returned to action March 12 and played in six straight games. However, prior to Sunday's contest, Morris had been a DNP-CD in each of Miami's last four games.

Heat's Markieff Morris: Barely touches the floor in loss

Morris amassed zero points (0-2 FG) and one rebound over four minutes during Wednesday's 118-104 loss to the Warriors. Morris saw just four minutes in the loss, his lowest amount since returning from injury. Over that five-game span, he is averaging just 6.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.0 assists. To the surprise of no one, Morris has not been a fantasy commodity, and it's reasonably safe to assume nothing will change moving forward.

Heat’s Markieff Morris, Victor Oladipo on different trajectories in returns

The thought when the Miami Heat got closer to whole was that the rotation blueprint would come into focus. Instead, with Victor Oladipo and Markieff Morris back in Erik Spoelstra’s mix, it could be argued that lines have become blurred. In fact, at the moment, a case could be made that the return of Morris from his 58 games missed due to whiplash is having more impact on the rotation in these ...

Heat's Markieff Morris: Out again

Morris (neck) will remain sidelined for Saturday's tilt against the Timberwolves, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Morris has been sidelined since Nov. 8 due to whiplash. He has been nearing a return recently, but it will have to wait at least one more game.
