Pistons’ Monte Morris to Miss 6-8 Weeks

The Detroit Pistons, grappling with injuries this season, have faced a challenging stretch, losing 11 consecutive games.

According to Marc Stein, the Pistons announced that Monte Morris, dealing with a right quad strain, will undergo a PRP injection and will be re-evaluated in 6-to-8 weeks.

Despite being acquired in the summer to provide stability to the young backcourt, Morris has yet to make an appearance this season.

Morris encountered lower back soreness during the preseason, and his quad suffered an injury while he was recovering, keeping him on the sidelines for the entire season.

Even if he manages to make a comeback in six weeks, he won’t be back in action until early January, 2024. 

Morris delivered an average performance last season for the Wizards, scoring 10.3 points, providing 5.3 assists, and grabbing 3.4 rebounds in 27.3 minutes per game across 62 appearances. 

On a brighter note, the Pistons’ official statement shared positive health updates. Jalen Duren, dealing with a right ankle issue, is set to resume practice this week, as per the team.

Meanwhile, Bojan Bogdanovic, nursing a right calf strain, has entered the return-to-play process and received clearance for full-contact activities. Duren missed the last five games, and Bogdanovic has yet to make an appearance this season.
