Markieff Morris is not with the Miami Heat on their four-game road trip, which means he will likely miss at least 10 games with what the team is listing as whiplash.
Morris suffered the injury after he was shoved from behind by Nikola Jokic. Jokic received a one-game suspension for the incident.
“He’s doing a lot better, but other than that, we don’t have a new update,” Spoelstra said on Saturday morning.
Spoelstra was asked about the league's punishment of Jokic in light of the seriousness of Morris' condition.
“Look, we’ve covered all of that while we were in Denver,” Spoelstra said Saturday. “It is disappointing. It was a very dangerous play and it’s really unfortunate. That’s the byproduct of those kind of dangerous actions.
“But he is feeling better. We’ll just continue to take it one day at a time.”
