NBA Fans Blast Markieff Morris For Missing Miami Heat's Last 17 Games After Jokic Incident: "That's What He Gets For Trying To Act Like A Badass."

NBA Fans Blast Markieff Morris For Missing Miami Heat's Last 17 Games After Jokic Incident: "That's What He Gets For Trying To Act Like A Badass."

Markieff Morris is still sidelined following the altercation with Nikola Jokic early in November. The Morris twin hurt his neck after Jokic shoved him in retaliation from a previous cheap shot by the Miami Heat's player.

It's been over a month since that incident and Morris is yet to return to the team. The aftermath of the incident saw plenty of fans debating who was right or wrong in this situation, which escalated to an online feud between the Jokic brothers and Marcus Morris

Things got heated again in recent hours after Morris' absence for the Heat's 4-game road trip was announced, sparking a big debate among fans. Markieff has now missed 17 straight games since he was hit by Nikola Jokic. 

Many fans blasted the Miami Heat player for acting tough against the Denver Nuggets superstar, stating that when you play rough, rivals will get back at you, and that time, Nikola left no room for doubt. Others, however, defended the former Los Angeles Lakers player, even asking the league to suspend Jokic for as many games Morris has missed. 

When he got hit, Morris landed on the floor pretty badly. He hurt his neck and that seems to be the main reason why he hasn't returned to the floor for the Heat. The Morris twins have been mentioned in plenty of stories trying to demonstrate how tough they are, and people haven't forgotten about that. That's why several fans went after Markieff and his attitude towards Jokic. 

Still, we hope he gets better as soon as possible and returns to the court to help the Miami Heat, who currently rank 5th in the Eastern Conference with a 16-12 record. 

Morris averaged 7.7 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 10 games with the Floridians.
