Marcus Morris played 23 minutes for 12 points, four rebounds and two 3-pointers, and was the only Sun to score in double digits in a very ugly loss to the Raptors on Wednesday night.
The Suns scored a total of 31 points in the second half and committed a season-high and U.S. Airways record 29 turnovers on the night. And the bad news doesn't stop there, as Marcin Gortat left after hearing a 'pop' in his foot, and suggested he could miss "weeks" with the injury. Jermaine O'Neal is currently tending to his young daughter, who is having heart surgery, leaving a huge hole at center in Phoenix. Hamed Hadaddi is not the answer, so look for Marcus and his brother Markieff Morris (3 points, 6 boards, 1 steal, 1 block, 1-of-7 shooting in 27 minutes) to see plenty of minutes in the middle going forward, along with Luis Scola and O'Neal, once he's back with the team.
