Miami Heat forward Markieff Morris will make his return to the team’s lineup tonight vs. the Minnesota Timberwolves and will play for the first time since November, having suffered whiplash resulting from a push in the back by Denver Nuggets star and reigning MVP Nikola Jokic, per Shams Charania.

The player was initially expected to miss around 10 games but has spent four months sidelined.

The Heat recently welcomed Victor Oladipo back into the lineup and will expect their prospects to be further boosted by Morris’ return.
