Darius Morris sat on the bench, and this time it had nothing to do with the Lakers' coaching staff refusing to give him playing time.
Less than a week after the Lakers assigned him to the Development League, Morris missed what would've been his second game with theD-Fenders on Monday against Idaho because of a left wrist injury, saidD-Fenders Coach Eric Musselman.
The team didn't make Morris available after the game, but he was wearing a brace on his left wrist. The Lakers said they're still awaiting test results before announcing anything, so it remains unclear when Morris suffered the injury and the significance of it. TheD-Fendershost Idaho on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. at Toyota Sports Center, which the Lakers also use as their practice facility.
"It's unfortunate he couldn't play tonight because of an injury," Musselman said after theD-Fenders' 108-99 victory Monday over Idaho. "But we need to keep working with him in practice and in games. Skill development becomes really important."
