Fans on Twitter Are Convinced Marcus Morris Intentionally Stepped On Luka Doncic's Injured Ankle

Fans on Twitter Are Convinced Marcus Morris Intentionally Stepped On Luka Doncic's Injured Ankle

Marcus Morris could be in hot water with the NBA after newly-released vision shows him stepping on Luka Doncic's already-injured ankle.

Eagle-eyed basketball fans flocked to social media after seeing the sideline view of the incident involving Clippers forward Morris and Dallas Mavericks star Doncic.

While no one can ever be certain as to whether the move was intentional or not, the footage itself paints a pretty damning picture.

Following a successful three-pointer from the Clippers, Doncic and Co were seen lining up in position for the restart.

Turning on the spot to receive a pass, 21-year-old Doncic was stopped firmly in his tracks when he was met by the oncoming Morris who was clearly intent on playing some full-court defence.

Just as he was about to catch the ball, Mavs ace Doncic tripped over and hit the deck when his opponent made contact with his ankle.

The force of Morris' weight on Doncic's ankle even saw his left shoe come flying off.

While the contact itself looks fairly innocuous, the most damning aspect of the video is the fact that Morris sprinted over from the sideline when the play hadn't even began.

And another tweeted: "Marcus Morris did this on purpose, he really tried to hurt the ankle of Luka Doncic... NBA suspension coming."

Meanwhile, Morris has since come out and responded to claims that he intentionally tried to injure his opponent.

He tweeted: "I play this game with a level of respect for myself and other players. To think I would try to injure somebody is crazy to me. 10 years going against the best. I stand on morals and hard work. I compete and leave it out there every game.

"Basketball has never been that serious to try to hurt somebody. I'm not apologising for s*** because I know what I put into this game day in and day out. It was a mistake deal with it. Competing is why I play."
