Los Angeles Clippers forward Marcus Morris has a son due in September and said he plans to be there for the birth.
“Wouldn’t miss it for the world,” Morris said, via Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times.
Morris’ late arrival to Orlando was due to taking care of family, as he already has a two-year-old son at home.
The Clippers have already had Montrezl Harrell, Patrick Beverley and Lou Williams temporarily leave the “bubble”.
Morris could end up missing some of the Western Conference Semifinals or Western Conference Finals, depending on when exactly he leaves and how the Clippers do in the playoffs.
