Despite suffering what he called the worst sprained ankle of his life in Game 1, and initially thinking it was broken, Wizards power forward Markieff Morris remains optimistic he can play in Game 2 on Tuesday.
Morris left Game 1 in the second quarter and did not return. But afterwards he told reporters in Boston that he expects to be ready to go.

Head coach Scott Brooks said that Morris will need to be re-evaluted on Monday.
“It didn’t look good,” Brooks said of the replay. “We’ll know more tomorrow.”
Morris had five points and three rebounds in 11 minutes before getting hurt.
