Marcus Morris has avoided any suspension by the NBA.
A league source confirmed to SNY's Ian Begley that Morris won't be suspended for Monday's incident.
The nine-year veteran had a very strong preseason debut against Washington, going off for 17 points in the first half.
Early in the the second half, after some back-and-forth with Justin Anderson, Morris hit Anderson in the head with the ball as Anderson guarded him. He received a Flagrant 2 foul and was ejected from the game.
"I just kind of overreacted a little bit," Morris said after the game"… At the end of the day you never want to get thrown out of a game. There are different ways to go about different things and setting tone. It's preseason so something to learn from. I'm happy it's preseason. Things happen and it escalated."
While he showed some remorse for committing the foul, Morris also said the incident showed the Knicks' new, tougher identity.
"Like I said in the beginning, we're not taking no s--t. So it is what it is." Morris said.
As of now, it seems like Morris will be on the floor on October 23 when the Knicks open their regular season against San Antonio.
"If that was regular season I wouldn't have done that. My team needs me," Morris said. "I've got to be smart."
Marc Berman of the New York Post was the first to report that Morris would avoid suspension.
