Miami Heat forward Markieff Morris will miss his team’s road game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday because of whiplash, per Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald.
Morris left the Heat’s 113-96 loss to the Denver Nuggets on Monday after a hard foul from reigning NBA MVP Nikola Jokic:
Morris initially committed a hard foul on Jokic, who responded with one of his own. A stretcher came out for Morris, but he walked off on his own power with teammates by his sides. Both players were ejected.
Morris signed with the Heat in August to mark his fifth team since February 2019 and the sixth of his career. He averaged 11.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists across his first 10 NBA seasons,
