  • Morris was ejected from Sunday's game against Houston, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports. Morris got into it with the Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins after Cousins gave Morris a shove that sent him to the ground. Morris immediately retaliated, prompting the ejection late in the first quarter. Morris grabbed one rebound and did not attempt a shot in four minutes before the ejection.

  • Morris will get the start at power forward in Friday's game against the Bulls, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports. Morris will replace Anthony Davis (hip) in the starting lineup. He is averaging just 3.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.8 triples across 14.4 minutes in nine games this season, but will presumably be in line for a bigger workload Friday.

  • Morris recorded three points (1-4 FG, 1-4 3Pt) and four rebounds in 13 minutes during Friday's 109-103 win over the Spurs. Morris' role this season is similar to last year's, and he's seeing 14.8 minutes per game with averages of 4.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists. Outside of very deep leagues, there's no reason to consider Morris in fantasy.

  • Morris put up nine points (3-5 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 0-0 FT) seven rebounds, two assists and one steal in 15 minutes of Friday's 138-115 win over the Mavericks. Morris has played at least 15 minutes in each of the Lakers' first two games and has produced in limited playing time. The Kansas product is hot from beyond the arc so far this season, making four of his eight attempts. While that percentage won't keep up, he'll look to stay hot against the Timberwolves on Sunday.

  • Morris agreed Monday with the Lakers on a one-year contract for the veteran's minimum, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Both Los Angeles teams were bidding for Morris' services in free agency, but rather than joining twin brother Marcus on the Clippers, Markieff elected to stick around with the Lakers for another season. After securing a buyout from the Pistons in February, Morris joined the Lakers for the stretch run and stepped in as a key rotational piece in the team's run to the NBA title. He earned double-digit minutes in all but two of the Lakers' 21 postseason contests, averaging 5.9 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.4 triples and 1.0 assists per game while knocking down 42 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc. He'll likely slot in as the No. 4 big man for the Lakers behind Anthony Davis, Marc Gasol and Montrezl Harrell.
