Updated: 04-01-2019 00:33 IST

Washington Wizards forward Markieff Morris will miss the next six.weeks after being diagnosed with transient cervical neuropraxia, the team announced Thursday.

Morris was diagnosed Wednesday at a clinic in Dallas after experiencing neck and upper back stiffness following a blow to the chin in a game against the Los Angeles Lakers in mid-December. He reaggravated the injury Dec. 26 against the Pistons, the team said.

After an MRI came back clean, Morris saw back specialist Dr. Andrew Dossett, who diagnosed the injury.

Morris will be limited to non-contact activities for the next six.weeks, the team said. The 6-foot-10 forward is expected to be cleared for full activities at that point.

Morris, 29, has averaged 11.5 points and 5.1 rebounds in 34 games for the Wizards this season.
