Washington Wizards forward Markieff Morris started in Game 2 against the Boston Celtics just days after he injured his ankle so severely he said that he thought he had broken it.

Morris was injured by Celtics big man Al Horford, who slid under the Wizards forward on a long jumper in Game 1. Horford did not give Morris enough room to land, and was called for a foul. After taking his free throws, Morris checked out of the game.

Meanwhile, in the first minutes of Game 2, Morris and Horford were again getting physical with each other. This time it was Morris getting chippy, throwing Horford to the ground as the two were battling for a ball on the baseline.

Do you think when he did this he asked Horford if he undercut him intentionally?
