Since he provoked Nikola Jokic and he responded with a hard blow against his back, which resulted in one of the ugliest tanganas of this season in the NBA, which resulted in one of the ugliest tanganas this season in the NBA, there has been no more trace of Markieff Morris on the courts. The Heat player has only played 10 games this season and has not been able to participate in 30 games, the same ones that have elapsed since that brawl.

The Morris twin who plays in Miami has had recurring neck problems in recent years. At 32 he had to make this break after the hard butt that the Serbian center from Denver hit him in the aforementioned incident on November 8, 2021.

The League’s performance on that occasion was as follows: a suspension game for Jokic and financial fines for Morris ($ 50,000) and Butler ($ 30,000), the latter for getting into the fight. The account for the most affected, Markieff, is counted in matches and goes by 30.

The controversial player has taken to his social networks to reply to his followers about how he is doing. A Twitter account recalled the fact, qualifying as “wild” I haven’t played since, and he said the following: “There’s no wild shit in all of this. It’s a real injury! Imagine having a 300-pound fat man carelessly running full speed and contacting your spine.”. He also added that he will be back soon.

Markieff has been in the NBA since 2011 and has been champion once, with the Lakers in the bubble that was created to end the campaign in 2020. He has gone through the Suns, Wizards, Thunder and Pistons, now part of a Heat that are candidates to win the title this course.
