Marcus Morris OUT tonight, but not worried about sprained ankle

Marcus Morris has officially been ruled out for tonight's game versus the Utah Jazz, per Marcus Morris, who claims that he has a "right ankle bruise."

Morris re-injured the ankle during Monday night's game against the Phoenix Suns. He was a crucial piece in the Boston Celtics' victory, and finished the night with 20 points, 3 rebounds, and 1 assist on 75% shooting from both the field and behind the arc. He only played for three-quarters, having not returned after dinging the ankle.

The Celtics, and Morris, don't seem too worried about the injury, as X-rays after the game came back negative.

Morris has been playing his best offensive ball of the season this month. In March, he's recorded season highs in points per game (18.3), field goal percentage (.485), three-point percentage (.482), true shooting percentage (.613), and offensive rating (118).

Mook's month has been his most efficient, and he's also attempted more shots along the way. He's currently put up 136 field goals in March, which ties his monthly high, and has attempted 56 three-pointers, which is at least ten more takes from deep than in any other month. Of those 56 three-pointers, he's hit 27, which is also at least 10 more than in any other month this season.

For the calendar page, he's averaged 18.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1 assist per game, and has come up in some extremely clutch situations.
By the way, Al Horford is considered questionable for tonight's game.

Tip off is at 9:30 EST. Let's go Celtics!

UPDATE: Horford is OUT, Yabu is IN.
