Marcus Morris Sr. News
Los Angeles Clippers forward Marcus Morris Sr. (personal) won't be available for Tuesday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. It's uncertain why Morris is away from the team or when he'll actually return. That being said, it wouldn't be shocking to see Morris miss more time going forward. The Clippers will use a committee approach to help fill the void. Nicolas Batum will likely start alongside Norman Powell on Tuesday. Terence Mann, Luke Kennard and Robert Covington will also pick up additional playing time.
Los Angeles Clippers forward Marcus Morris Sr. finished with 10 points during the preseason win over Maccabi Ra'anana. The veteran logged 14 minutes on Friday night, shooting 4-for-10 from the field and 2-for-5 from deep while adding four boards and two assists. Nonetheless, Morris is currently slotted behind Nicolas Batum on the depth chart. With that said, the 33-year-old probably won't be a consistent contributor for fantasy managers this season. However, he should make sporadic appearances in the starting lineup, which would temporarily increase his stock for those in need.
LA Clippers small/power forward Marcus Morris Sr. (rest) and shooting guard Norman Powell (rest) will be held out of Sunday's regular-season finale vs. Oklahoma City. The duo will join Paul George (rest) on the sidelines, as the Clippers have nothing to gain in the second leg of the season-ending back-to-back. Luke Kennard, Nicolas Batum, Robert Covington, and Terance Mann are all candidates to see elevated run and offensive usage without Morris and Powell (and George) in the mix. Morris finishes the season having averaged 15.4 points and 4.4 boards across his 54 games, while Powell sets a new career high at 19 PPG, including 21.4 points on a nightly basis in his five outings with the Clippers. Both will be integral to LA's odds of advancing in the Play-in Tournament next week and should be considered sound DFS choices.
Los Angeles Clippers forwards Marcus Morris Sr. (knee) and Nicolas Batum (ankle) have been ruled out for Friday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Both players took part in the team's overtime loss to the Chicago Bulls on Thursday, despite the fact that both players carried injury designations going into the contest. It's no surprise to see the two veterans receiving the day off after they logged nearly 40 minutes each on Thursday. The Clippers will be extremely short-handed on Friday as Paul George (elbow) and Reggie Jackson (rest) are resting as well. Robert Covington and Isaiah Hartenstein will help make up for the absence of Morris and Batum while Terance Mann, Luke Kennard and Amir Coffey will lead the backcourt.
