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.MORE NEWS: Delta Variant Making It Harder To Reach COVID-19 Herd Immunity
