Markieff Morris To Miss At Least 10 Games With Whiplash From Nikola Jokic Shove 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Nov 21, 2021 1:29 pm

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.”

Too bad it wasn't season ending, that's what he really deserves.

Fake-a$$ schoolyard bully. Got a push from behind after a cheap shot of your own and you claim whiplash? Hope you get charged fake-a$$ chiropractic prices for your "doctor's" visits

1 game suspension while putting that paper tiger out at least 10. Somewhere the Joker is laughing his behind off, lol. Shaq and Chuck said it best, don't turn your back when you cheapshot someone, that's just cowardly.

Mirroring all the other comments on this situation, but I don't feel sorry at all.

Don't cheap shot someone and then turn your back. :crazy:

For once, someone got what they deserved.

Not once, was Morris man enough to turn to face Jokic after the dirty foul so don't f'ing complain.

Morris started it. Jokic gave him what he deserved. I'm sure Morris thinks twice about pulling that kind of **** again.

I don't care that Morris' back was turned when Jokic shoved him. Maybe he shouldn't have just started walking away as if he did nothing wrong.

I have absolutely no problem with what Jokic did.

Kieff making sure he doesn't play on the 29th against Joker. Step right up, Jimmy Butler.
