Coming into the 2018-19 regular season, the Washington Wizards were projected to be one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference. However, they’ve played their way to a 2-8 record through their first 10 games, raising a few eyebrows around the league. Wizards forward Markieff Morris doesn’t seem to be all that concerned with his team’s sluggish start, though.

Most experts and analysts thought the Wizards would shine in a LeBron James-less Eastern Conference. That hasn’t really been the case, but many of the players are showing an unwavering support for third-year head coach Scott Brooks.

In an interview with Candace Buckner of The Washington Post, Morris defended his head coach.

“He’s a guy who’s coming in and doing a job like the rest of us,” Morris tells The Washington Post. “Sh– happens. You take losses but it’s like, we started like this before. You know what I’m saying? We’re just trying to find it.”

Though his words were blunt, Morris makes a solid point. There is still time for the Wizards to recover.

Morris, now 29 years of age, has made nine appearances with the Wizards this season, racking up averages of 11.1 points on 44.4 percent shooting from the field (31.6 percent from beyond the arc), 4.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 26.3 minutes per outing.

The Wizards are coming off a 119-100 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night. Washington’s next shot at claiming a victory comes on Friday night, when they’ll travel to Orlando for a matchup against the Magic. Tip-off inside the Amway Center is set for 7:00 p.m. ET.
