    Markieff Morris came off the bench to play 15 minutes in his Lakers debut on Tuesday, recording four points (1-of-3 shooting), one rebound and one block.

    Morris' value will likely take a big hit with the Lakers, but he's certainly capable of putting up standard league value if he can regularly exceed 20 minutes per game. Keep an eye on how his role unfolds.

    Shams Charania is reporting that Markieff Morris plans to sign with the Lakers.

    And there you have it. It looked like it was heading this way upon the initial news of the Morris buyout, and the Lakers will now be able to add Morris as a midseason acquisition. Morris will be useful as a 3-pointer streamer on the Lakers but is unlikely to emerge with any sort of standard-league value on a team this deep.

    Shams Charania is reporting that the Lakers have emerged as the frontrunners to sign Markieff Morris, while the Raptors have also expressed interest.

    Morris is shooting nearly 40% from 3-point land this season and fits nicely with most contenders as a depth stretch four. He should have his choice of landing spots and won't be on the open market for long, though it would likely take an injury on his new team for him to come near standard-league fantasy appeal.

    Markieff Morris has greed to a contract buyout with the Pistons, per Shams Charania.

    This isn't surprising — frankly it's more shocking that the Pistons didn't move Morris, who is on a one-year deal, for a second-round pick at the deadline. He was a DNP-CD on Thursday so the writing was on the wall. Morris is currently shooting a career-best .397 from behind the arc and should generate interest from contenders in need of a stretch four. He's unlikely to hold legitimate fantasy value on a good team, while this opens up some breathing room for Sekou Doumbouya in Detroit.

    Markieff Morris was productive off the bench on Wednesday, chipping in 14 points (5-of-7 shooting) with four threes, eight rebounds, one assist and one block in 21 minutes.

    Kieff's minutes appear to be stable (21 in the last game as well) and his role secure moving forward. He's worth streaming for stretch-four cats (3s, blocks). He's easy on the turnovers but can be nasty on the FG%.

    Markieff Morris (illness) returned from a five-game absence on Monday and logged 21 minutes off the bench, posting 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting, as well as one rebound, three assists and one triple.

    Morris was a surprise hold by the Pistons at the deadline. And while he's got a limited upside and is a walking injury-risk, he does get enough minutes off the bench to dampen the upside of Christian Wood.

    Markieff Morris (illness) will be available for Monday's game.

    Morris had been considered probable, so this was expected after he missed over a week. It will be interesting to see how he fits in with newcomer John Henson.

    Markieff Morris (flu) is being listed as probable for Monday's game versus the Hornets.

    Morris is set to see a larger role with Andre Drummond being traded and he's worth keeping on your watch list until we see how the minutes shake out.

    Markieff Morris (flu) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Knicks.

    Morris will miss his third straight game with an illness and fifth straight overall. We should continue to see a healthy dose of Christian Wood and Thon Maker. Newly acquired John Henson is also available for this game so he might be someone to monitor to see how he fits into the rotation.

    Markieff Morris (illness) and Svi Mykhailiuk (right hip strain) have both been ruled out ahead of Friday's game vs. the Thunder.

    The Pistons traded away Andre Drummond on Thursday, creating more opportunity in the frontcourt. However, it appears like Christian Wood will be the primary beneficiary. Mykhailiuk had some streaming appeal while the Pistons were dealing with some injuries but can now be safely dropped in standard leagues. Their next opportunity to play will come on Saturday vs. the Knicks.

    Markieff Morris will miss Wednesday’s tilt vs. the Suns as he continues to recover from a body illness.

    Wednesday will mark Morris’ third straight absence. There has been a lot of speculation revolving around the veterans on the Pistons and Morris has drawn interest from several contenders. Continue to monitor the wire as the deadline approaches. Christian Wood, Sekou Doumbouya and Thon Maker will continue to see more minutes on Wednesday with Morris sidelined.

    According to Kevin O'Connor of the Ringer, several teams have expressed interest in forward Markieff Morris ahead of the trade deadline.

Continue to monitor the news as trade season is upon us. Morris is currently questionable to play in Wednesday's game against the Suns due to a body illness.

    Markieff Morris (illness) is being listed as questionable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Suns.

    Morris missed Monday's contest with a hip injury, but it seems as though he is over that issue, and now sickness is potentially keeping him out. The Pistons have seemingly everyone on the trade block and could look completely different by Thursday afternoon. Keep tabs on who goes in and who leaves town, as there could be fantasy-friendliness to be found here.

    Markieff Morris (right hip soreness) will not play during Monday's game.

    The Pistons could be dealing Morris soon, so they aren't taking any risks. Christian Wood should see more action against the Grizzlies.

    Markieff Morris (right hip soreness) is questionable for Monday's game.

    Morris was a late scratch on Sunday and the injury isn't expected to be all that serious. He may be traded at the deadline, though his best route to fantasy value is one where he stays in Detroit and both Andre Drummond and Christian Wood get traded. That's too many conditions to waste a roster spot on right now.
