Scott Brooks told reporters “I still don’t know” when asked about whether Markieff Morris would be able to play in Tuesday’s Game 2, and the power forward remains a game time decision.
Morris himself promised he would play, but it’s probably not his call to make. He participated in shootaround this morning and will do some pregame work to see if he can go. If he is out, Jason Smith and Kelly Oubre will see the biggest bumps in playing time. Smith had a few strong games with Morris out of the lineup in the regular season while Oubre started the second half in Morris’ place on Sunday. It will be Oubre who starts if Morris can’t play.
