TheA Houston RocketsA could be putting a close eye on free agentA Markieff Morrisand his health situation, as a potential candidate to join the team, according toA Kelly Iko of The Athletic.

Morris, who is dealing with a neck injury, recently sought out a second opinion for it and now expects to be back right after the All-Star Game, according toA Candace Buckner of The Washington Post.
