Markieff Morris (hernia) was able to play full-contact 1-on-1 at Saturday's practice. When asked if Morris is still on track to return in a few weeks, coach Scott Brooks sounded optimistic. "As of right now, yes," Brooks said. "If there’s no setback, and he hasn’t had a setback yet." Brooks added that his conditioning is better than expected, but fantasy owners should keep in mind that he'll likely be eased back into action. Once Morris is cleared, Kelly Oubre's minutes could take a hit.

Markieff Morris (hernia) was able to participate in Saturday's practice with light contact. Morris is making gradual progress as he works his way back from sports hernia surgery. On Thursday, coach Scott Brooks said Morris is close to returning to full-contact practice, and it appears Morris is a bit ahead of schedule. His original target date was mid-November, but Morris may be able to return closer to the start of next month.

Markieff Morris (hernia) participated in Thursday's non-contact practice. Coach Scott Brooks said Morris is close to returning to full-contact practice and it sounds like he has a real shot to beat his original timetable that had him returning in mid-November. Once Morris is cleared to play, that would likely dampen the fantasy appeal of Kelly Oubre. Jason Smith (shoulder) would also lose minutes.

Markieff Morris (hernia) was limited to getting up some set shots and doing light sprints during Monday's practice. Morris still has about a month to go before he's fully up to speed, so he's not really worth stashing in leagues without an IR-spot. With Morris set to begin the year on the sidelines, there will be more minutes for guys like Jason Smith, Kelly Oubre and Ian Mahinmi, but none of these guys are expected to make a difference in 12-team leagues.

Scott Brooks said he expects to have Markieff Morris (hernia) back with the team within the next day or so. Morris was away from the team tending to legal matters, but was found not guilty on all charges on Tuesday afternoon, so he should be back with the club shortly. However, he's still recovering from hernia surgery, and he's not expected back on the court until mid-November. Morris could be worth a late-round flier in deep leagues that offer an IR-spot, but there are higher upside guys to take a flier on in standard settings.

Markieff Morris (hernia) was found not guilty on all charges in the Morris' twins assault case. Morris will now head back to Washington where he'll continue his rehab from the sports hernia surgery. He's not going to be ready for the start of the year, and with just top-75 upside, he's not really worth a late-round target unless your league offers an IR-spot.
