    News

    Morris compiled 17 points (7-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 116-110 win over the Hornets.

    Impact

    Morris returned to the lineup after sitting out Tuesday's matchup with the 76ers due to an illness. The absence of Blake Griffin (hamstring) resulted in Morris asserting himself offensively in this one. It remains to be seen how many minutes Morris will receive once the regular season arrives, but theoretically he could play alongside Griffin and Andre Drummond in bigger lineups given that he and Griffin both boast deep shooting range.

    News

    Morris will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's preseason game against the 76ers due to illness, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

    Impact

    This doesn't appear to be a significant issue for Morris, though he may be held out of Tuesday's exhibition as a precaution. If he's unable to go, expect Joe Johnson, Christian Wood and Thon Maker to see an uptick in playing time.
