Pelicans' Markieff Morris: Dealt to New Orleans

Morris (neck) was traded to the Pelicans on Wednesday in exchange for Wesley Johnson, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Morris hasn't played since Dec. 26 and isn't expected to resume on-court activity until after the All-Star break while he recovers from transient cervical neuropraxia. Even if Morris is able to gain clearance to play for New Orleans at some point, he could have a tough time securing minutes in a deep frontcourt, especially if Anthony Davis stays put prior to Thursday's trade deadline. Morris' new landing spot and unclear timeline for a return makes it tough to justify holding him in most fantasy leagues.
