Markieff Morris signs a one-year deal to return to the Lakers

PF Markieff Morris has signed a one-year deal to return to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Fantasy Impact

Morris signed a one-year contract for the league minimum on Monday to return to the Lakers and compete for a second-straight championship during the 2020-21 season. Morris should provide decent fantasy value with the limited minutes he receives, as the veteran forward averaged 9.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 0.4 steals in 14.2 minutes in 14 games with the Lakers last season.

Markieff Morris scores 14 in spot start against Kings

Markieff Morris registered 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-5 3PT), five rebounds, and one assist in Thursday's loss to the Kings.

Fantasy Impact

Morris was traded to the Lakers at the end of February and did little on his new team averaging just 4.6 points, 3.1 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.5 blocks, and 0.4 steals over 13.8 minutes. Morris is a talented player that proved he can stuff the statsheet in Detroit. If he goes into the 2020-2021 season on the Lakers though, don't expect him to be on the fantasy radar.

Markieff Morris to make scrimmage debut on Monday

Markieff Morris will make his Lakers' scrimmage debut on Monday per head coach Frank Vogel.

Fantasy Impact

Morris was late to join the Lakers in the bubble and is still in the process of working himself into game shape. He should be a full go for the team scrimmage on Monday but he's not expected to have a material fantasy impact once the season resumes on Thursday.

Markieff Morris has cleared quarantine in Orlando

Dave McMenamin of ESPN is reporting that Lakers F Markieff Morris has cleared his quarantine and is now eligible to rejoin all team activities.

Fantasy Impact

After arriving in Orlando on Tuesday, Morris was required to quarantine for 48 hours before officially rejoining the team and participating in team activities. Now that he has officially cleared quarantine, Morris is now eligible to practice with the Lakers and should be considered questionable for Thursday's scrimmage against the Mavericks. Although Morris was a decent streaming option in fantasy leagues to begin the season, he has seen his numbers decrease across the board since arriving in Los Angeles back in February. Through eight games with the Lakers, the nine-year vet has put up only 4.8 points and 3.3 rebounds per game while only seeing 14.8 minutes a night.
