The Celtics could be without Marcus Morris longer than expected.
Morris, who missed the first eight games of the season due to soreness in his left knee, says he's been experiencing a different form of discomfort recently and plans to undergo a thorough examination on Tuesday, according to Boston Globe's Adam Himmelsbach.

Morris has been one of Brad Stevens' most efficient scorer in the front court this year, averaging 12 points while shooting 41 percent from the floor. He was inserted in Stevens' starting unit in 9 of the 16 games he's played this year.
