Morris missed the Celtics’ game on Saturday against Sacramento after spraining his ankle in Portland on Friday. He returned to action Monday in Phoenix, but tweaked his ankle again while taking a deep three. He told reporters that his ankle is bruised, but should be able to return this Saturday as the Celtics host the Toronto Raptors.
Brad Stevens also said that center Al Horford is questionable to play Wednesday with a left ankle sprain.

With two days of rest before the Celtics play the Raptor at home, tonight’s game can give Stevens a stretch to give Horford four days off between games.
The Celtics and Jazz at 9:30 p.m. EST as the Celtics can clinch the second seed in the eastern conference with a win and a Cleveland loss.
