Sources: Boston forward Marcus Morris is expected to miss extended time as he and the team work on solution for nagging left knee.

Is it just me or did Detroit trade the Celtics damaged goods? Why is there not more talk about the Cís getting fleeced?

Probably for the best.

Marcus is a polarizing player, but he'll be important come playoff time as a bench scorer.  Rest him as much as necessary in December, January, and February now that the team has banked quite a few wins.

Jaylen, Jayson, Semi, and perhaps Nader will all get more time.  Probably some more minutes for Theis, as well.

Marcus has bailed the second unit out of some spots with his individual scoring.  Could be an issue, but the team can afford some such issues.

Morris is an average player, but we need him considering the lack of talent we have at the end of the roster.

Because the Celtics passed his physical.  There was about a week between when the trade was rumored an announced ó most of that time was waiting on his physical.

Also because a healthy Morris on a healthy Celtics is probably the 7th man in the rotation, and people tend to not get worked up about non-key players making less than 5% of the teamís payroll.  Especially when the team has the best record in the league.  Morris is clearly not a critical player.

I expect to see him return on either 1/11 or 1/16, unless he needs surgery instead of rest and PT.

When I hear the words "working on a solution" I feel that he's likely going to go under the knife.

We will miss his scoring for the 2nd unit, especially on nights when Terry and Marcus Smart are heaving bricks.

They ve never even said WHY his knee is sore .   Surely with 100's years modern medicine ,  we know all the parts  , and 1000's of sports injuries to that area ......

and no one can even make a ...diagnosis with a 100 Harvard Doctors ?
