Washington Wizards forward Markieff Morris sprained his left ankle in the first half of Sunday’s Game 1 loss to the Boston Celtics and did not return but said he plans to play in Tuesday’s Game 2. Wizards coach Scott Brooks said after Boston’s 123-111 victory that he did not have an update on Morris, who will be re-evaluated on Monday, but admitted the injury did not look good.

Inside the Wizards’ locker room, Morris remained adamant he’d play. “For sure,” said Morris. “Hell yeah. It ain’t broke. It’s what I do.” Morris said he wanted to come back into Sunday’s Game 1 but was held out by the team. Said Morris: “It’s a long series.”
