Markieff Morris got suspended one game for coming off the Wizards bench during the Bradley BealDraymond Green altercation.

But Morris couldn’t serve the penalty until recovering from offseason hernia surgery that has sidelined him so far.

An NBA-approved doctor has apparently cleared Morris to play serve his suspension.

Ben Standig of FanRag Sports:

Morris will serve a one-game suspension Wednesday as the Wizards return home to face the Phoenix Suns, a source tells FanRag Sports.

The Suns have been better since firing Earl Watson/banishing Eric Bledsoe, but in Washington, the Wizards should still handle a lesser team that was riding a jolt.

Morris should matter more Friday, when the Wizards host the Cavaliers in a game that Washington will probably take as a statement opportunity and Cleveland likely won’t care at all about.
