The Cleveland Cavaliers signed forward Marcus Morris Sr. for the rest of the season, the team announced Friday.

Morris signed a 10-day contract with the Cavaliers on March 18 in the wake of injuries to guard Donovan Mitchell (nasal fracture), forward Evan Mobley (ankle) and guard Max Strus (knee). Mobley returned to action on Sunday, Strus came back on Wednesday and Mitchell reportedly could return as early as Friday night against the visiting Philadelphia 76ers.

Morris, 34, has averaged 7.8 points and 3.0 rebounds in five games with the Cavaliers. He shot 43.8 percent from 3-point range in that span.

The Cavs are the third team to employ Morris this season. He played 37 games with the 76ers and was dealt to the Spurs in a three-team deal on Feb. 8 before agreeing to a contract buyout. He was waived on Feb. 29 without playing a game for San Antonio.

Morris has played in 825 career games with the Houston Rockets, Phoenix Suns, Detroit Pistons, Boston Celtics, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers and 76ers.

He has career averages of 12.0 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.
