The Knicks will look to break out of their current five-game losing streak when they host the the Boston Celtics on Sunday, but they may without their leading scorer.
Following the team's practice on Saturday, the team announced that forward Marcus Morris is questionable to play on Sunday due to cervical spasms.
"His neck started having spasms, so he's questionable for tomorrow," David Fizdale said after practice.
The free agent pickup has played in every game this season with the Knicks, and he's taken on the role as the team's leading scorer during his first season in New York. He's averaged 18.7 points this season, easily the highest total of his NBA career. He's also scored 20 points or more in 11 of the Knicks' 19 games.
Morris also leads the team in minutes per game, just ahead of rookie RJ Barrett at 33.1.
If Morris is unable to go on Sunday, the Knicks will likely need to lean on Barrett and Julius Randle, both of whom could take on additional minutes in the froutcourt to make up for any potential absence.
Fizdale also said that Kevin Knox will be considered to step into the starting lineup if Morris sits out.
The Knicks also announced that point guard Elfrid Payton, who has only played in four games this season due to a hamstring injury, was a limited participant in Saturday's practice, but will once again be out on Sunday.
"He's starting to take some strides," said Fizdale. "He particpated today but he'll still be out."
