Markieff Morris has received an “excused absence” from the team and is expected to join the Lakers in Orlando soon. (The Athletic L.A. on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Morris is expected to be back with the team soon, which is great for the Lakers as they prepare for the season restart. His defense, grit, and versatility add more depth to the rotation. Since joining the Lakers, Morris has played in eight contests and has averaged 14.7 minutes of playing time, 4.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, and .6 steals per game. Because he has only played eight games with the Lakers before the shutdown, it can be hard to evaluate his potential value with such a small sample size. Based on his entire “book” of work, he has the potential to be a reliable option in a deep-league format, other than that a wait-and-see approach would be ideal for the evaluation of other considerations.
