Los Angeles Clippers PF Marcus Morris (knee) is a game-time decision against the Phoenix Suns during Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals on Tuesday.

Morris is likely to start again after playing 21 minutes and scoring just six points during a Game 1 loss against the Suns. Continue monitoring Morris' status as the 9 pm EDT tip-off approaches.
