Marcus Morris Practices For Red Claws, Recalled By Celtics

BOSTON (CBS) — Marcus Morris will not make his long-awaited Celtics debut on Monday night.

Instead, he hit the practice floor with Boston’s G League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws, on Monday.

The veteran forward wasn’t a G Leaguer for very long. He was recalled after the conclusion of Monday’s practice, which took place at the C’s practice facilities in Waltham.

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens recently said that Morris could use a good practice before returning to game action, an opportunity the Celtics couldn’t offer with a game in Miami on Saturday night before returning home for Monday night’s matchup with the Spurs at the TD Garden.

Morris, who has been shelved with a knee injury, could make his Boston debut on Wednesday when the Celtics host the Sacramento Kings. He figures to be a key part of Boston’s rotation this season.
