Marcus Morris twisted his ankle on a jump shot Wednesday and came up hobbled.
Morris came down hard on his left ankle. We’ll keep you updated on his condition but any absence would probably kick a few more minutes Tobias Harris’ way and could allow Stanley Johnson to get into the rotation.
Update: Morris returned to action and doesn’t look any worse for wear.

Coach Dwayne Casey spoke highly of Bruce Brown's defensive play, calling him an 'elite defender.'
Brown remains in contention for a starting spot with the Pistons, but he is not a high-usage player, and the Pistons have stocked up with offensive threats such as Derrick Rose and the immortal Joe Johnson. It will be tough for Brown to rack up enough touches or minutes this season.

There is some optimism in league circles about Kevin Durant's (Achilles) chances of playing this season, according to Brian Lewis of the New York Post.
Looking back on Durant's decision to return during the Finals, the Nets may want to exude caution when considering KD's return to action. However, Durant is pursuing his rehab with a sense of purpose, and it would be great to see him get back on the court this season. We'll keep you posted when a real timeline on Durant's rehab emerges. This news does not make him a target on draft day for standard leagues.
