Markieff Morris News
Los Angeles Lakers guard Dennis Schroder (foot) and forward Markieff Morris (ankle) will suit up for Saturday's game against the Utah Jazz. Both players are a little banged up, but willing to give it a go here. Schroder should see significant minutes despite struggling last outing. DFS players can roster him at your own risk, while Morris seems like a safe bet until Anthony Davis returns to the court.
Los Angeles Lakers forward/center Markieff Morris (ankle) is now a game-time decision Tuesday against the Charlotte Hornets. Morris has been acting as the starting power forward in the absence of Anthony Davis (calf) and is coming off a 17-point outing on Monday. Morris picked up an ankle sprain in the loss after playing 27 minutes and is in danger of missing Tuesday. If Morris sits, Talen Horton-Tucker and Montrezl Harrell should see a boost in minutes.
Los Angeles Lakers forwards LeBron James (ankle), Kyle Kuzma (heel), and Markieff Morris (knee) are probable to suit up against the Timberwolves on Tuesday. James' fantasy managers have nothing to worry about, as he has routinely been listed on the injury report and almost consistently suits up every night. Morris is off the fantasy radar, but James and Kuzma are both poised to have good games against a bad 'Wolves squad. Kuzma is coming off of a 17-point game with three triples.
The Los Angeles Lakers shook up their starting five for Wednesday's contest against Utah, elevating shooting guard/small forward Talen Horton-Tucker and power forward/center Markieff Morris to the starting lineup. Horton-Tucker takes the place of Wesley Matthews, with the second-year wing earning his second career start. Horton-Tucker has shown flashes of offensive brilliance when given the opportunity, as he stands to be a DFS upside play for those fantasy managers that are still able to slot him into lineups. Morris starts ahead of Kyle Kuzma, whose fantasy value may actually be aided by leading the second unit. The start marks the third of the year for Morris, who has combined for 17 points and 10 boards in previous starting gigs in 2020-21.
