Georgia Tech Basketball Preseason: Jason Morris close to 100 percent after toe injury

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia Tech coach Brian Gregory says Jason Morris is close to being fully healthy.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets basketball coach Brian Gregory addressed the media prior to Georgia Tech's season opener against Tulane on Friday, and addressed the health of Jason Morris.

Morris, a junior guard-forward, played all of last season with an injured toe after dislocating it in 2011. Gregory said that injury is nearly fully healed now. He also told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Morris will have a big role this season:

Gregory expects to use him at shooting guard, wing and power forward.

"That's a big responsibility, but I think he's more than capable of doing that and giving us a lift at three different positions," he said.

Last season, Morris averaged 7.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game. Those numbers were all improvements over his freshman season, but his shooting percentage fell from 41 percent as a freshman to 35 percent as a sophomore. His three-point percentage fell from 40 percent as a freshman to 29 percent as a sophomore.
