Morris will join the Celtics G-League affiliated Maine Red Claws for one practice after missing the Celtics first six games of the season due to right knee soreness. Morris is not expected to play against the Spurs, but could make his first appearance of the year as a Celtic on Wednesday against the Kings at the TD Garden.
