  • Morris averaged 14.9 minutes per game off the bench for the Lakers after coming over from Detroit. Morris made his debut on Feb. 25 against New Orleans and went on to appear in eight games before the league suspended play. He averaged just 4.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in that span, with his highest-scoring game (10 points) coming against the Pels on March 1.

  • Morris accrued 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 15 minutes during Sunday's 122-114 win over the Pelicans. Through his four games since joining the Lakers, Morris has put up 6.8 points, 3.3 boards and 1.3 triples, while shooting 40.0 percent from the field, and 100 percent from the line in that span. Morris wasn't exactly a fantasy option outside of the deepest of leagues before moving to Los Angeles, and he still isn't now. It was only a couple of years ago that the 3-year old was relevant in standard leagues, but it would take a miracle for him to leap back onto that radar with this Lakers team.

  • Morris officially signed with the Lakers on Sunday night, Dan Woike of the LA Times reports. The move was initially reported on Friday, but Morris had to wait to clear waivers for the signing to become official. In order to accommodate Morris on the roster, the Lakers will waive the injured DeMarcus Cousins, who has not played this season while rehabbing his torn ACL. Morris could be available to make his Lakers debut as soon as Tuesday's home matchup against New Orleans.

  • Morris cleared waivers Sunday and is expected to sign with the Lakers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The Lakers have been the favorites to add Morris since he reached a buyout with the Pistons on Friday, but he had to make it through waivers unclaimed before being able to sign as a free agent. The veteran forward will be joining a busy frontcourt in Los Angeles which includes LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma, Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee. Morris averaged 11.0 points and 3.9 rebounds in 22.5 minutes for Detroit this season, but he's unlikely to reach those totals on a consistent basis with his new team.

  • Morris is expected to sign with the Lakers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Less than a day after reaching a buyout with the Pistons, Morris already has a destination planned. He'll join the loaded Lakers frontcourt, which already includes LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Kyle Kuzma, Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee. Morris was seeing 22.5 minutes per game with Detroit this season, but it seems unlikely he'll reach that mark on a consistent basis in this new situation. As a result, fantasy owners should feel confident leaving Morris on the waiver wire in the vast majority of leagues.
