Brad Stevens said Marcus Morris needs a “good, hard practice with teammates before returning.”
This implies that he is close, but unlikely to be back soon enough for the Celtics’ game against the Spurs on Monday. His return will hurt the minutes of Jayson Tatum, who has been playing very well in a starting role and could already be a better player than Morris. Nevertheless, the expectation at the moment is that Morris will start for his new team when he returns. He’s more of a 12-team guy.
