Markieff Morris (sports hernia surgery) was a light participant in practice on Saturday, while Jason Smith (shoulder) did not participate.
It is a good sign that Markieff Morris is beginning to go through light practice but he should remain out for at least the next five to six games. He was a top-80 player last year so it may be time to consider stashing him. Kelly Oubre has done a stellar job filling in for Morris and Smith so far and should be owned in more leagues than he currently is. He is averaging 7.5 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.5 triples after two games and the minutes should be there as long as Morris is out.
