Darius Morris

  1. With Mike Conley out at least a week, Memphis Grizzlies sign Darius Morris

    Feb 3, 2014, 1:49 PM EDT

    Dion Waiters, Darius Morris

    Mike Conley is out at least a week with a sprained ankle, and the Memphis Grizzlies already traded their backup point guard, Jerryd Bayless, to the Boston Celtics. Nick Calathes will start in Conley’s place, but the rookie is more of a shooting guard. The Grizzlies clearly need help at point guard if they want…

  2. Sixers waive Kwame Brown, Darius Morris

    Nov 20, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Dallas Mavericks

    If you’re a team looking for a backup big man to soak up a few minutes in the paint, Kwame Brown is available… not that your team should pick him up. Just saying he’s available. Brown and teammate Darius Morris have been waived by the Philadelphia 76ers, something first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo…

  3. Brett Brown: 76ers’ have just six NBA players

    Oct 23, 2013, 10:50 AM EDT

    Brett Brown, Daniel Orton

    Many advanced stats, in basketball and other sports, rely on a concept called a replacement player. A replacement player is a hypothetical player who can easily be obtained to fill out the roster. In his definition of an NBA replacement player, Kevin Pelton says a team of replacement players would win 10 games in a…

    Kobe Bryant

    Last season: It was supposed to be yet another year spent contending for a championship for a storied Lakers franchise that already has 16 of them. L.A. loaded up with free agent talent in Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, and was on paper the team most believed would stand in the way of a second straight…

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    Last season: The 76ers went 34-48, the 11th time in the last 12 seasons they won between 33 and 48 games. They made the playoffs most seasons during that span, but they only one two postseason series. With the emergence of the NBA’s second-youngest All-Star last year, Jrue Holiday, Philadelphia seemed like it had a…

  6. 76ers sign Darius Morris, he is likely to make squad

    Sep 12, 2013, 12:44 PM EDT

    Darius Morris

    Darius Morris couldn’t crack Mike D’Antoni’s tight rotation last season with the Lakers. He played sparingly until injuries in the playoffs forced D’Antoni’s hand and Morris started Game 3 against the Spurs in the first round. Morris put up 24 points (on just 15 shots) and had six assists, but he got torched at the…

  7. Trey Burke ready to compete with new teammate point guards right now

    Jun 26, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    Michigan v Louisville

    NEW YORK – When Trey Burke committed to Michigan, the Wolverines still had Darius Morris. Though Morris’ NBA success as a Lakers second-round pick has been moderate at best, he was a star at Michigan. Morris left early for the NBA before Burke arrived in Ann Arbor, but Burke’s preparation for playing with Morris could…

    Lakers Dwight Howard reacts after being fouled by the Spurs during Game 4 in Los Angeles

    LOS ANGELES — Coming into Sunday’s Game 4 against the Spurs and dealing with a mountain of injuries that has finally become insurmountable, the only thing left for the Lakers, who were just a single game from this season being brought to its merciful conclusion, was to see whether or not the team would come…

  9. Spurs take care of business against injured Lakers, lead series 3-0

    Apr 27, 2013, 2:32 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Dwight Howard

    LOS ANGELES — This is what good teams do. They take care of business. With injuries forcing the Lakers into lineups without any guards you can name — unless you’re a big D-League fan — the Spurs looked every bit the contender, racing out to an early double-digit lead, never letting up and cruising to…

  10. No Nash for Lakers; Goudelock, Morris to start, try and be unlikely heroes

    Apr 26, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    SPO-BKN-NBA--WIZARDS-LAKERS

    LOS ANGELES — The virtual worst-case scenario has become the Lakers reality. No Kobe Bryant No Steve Nash (two epidurals, one cortisone shot). No Steve Blake. No Jodie Meeks. Mike D’Antoni made it official pregame: Your Lakers starting backcourt is Andrew Goudelock and Darius Morris. They will bring Chris Duhon off the bench. By the…

  11. More Lakers injury fun: World Peace has knee drained, will play Game 3

    Apr 26, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    World Peace knee

    Lakers trainer Gary Vitti is going to need more than a room off the side of the locker room, he needs his own wing. To add to the injuries expected to keep the top four Lakers out of a crucial Game 3 Friday night, Metta World Peace had his knee drained on Thursday. Teams try…

  12. Lakers’ Blake out indefinitely; Nash, Meeks doubtful for Game 3

    Apr 25, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    It looks like the Lakers will head into Game 3 against the Spurs Friday night without their top four guards. Steve Blake is out indefinitely with a right hamstring injury suffered in the fourth quarter of the Lakers latest loss on Wednesday night, the team announced Thursday afternoon. The injury was checked out by ultrasound…

  13. Kobe will be back, but what do Lakers do this summer now?

    Apr 13, 2013, 11:02 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant isn’t going to let his career end this way, limping off the court with a torn Achilles tendon. It is going to end on his terns. He would not allow it to be any other way. He will be back. An hour after he limped off the court he was telling the media…

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Excellent information from Marc Stein of ESPN.com in his weekend column, where he details the circumstances surrounding the ability of various players to either block or veto a trade involving them this season. There are 19 players in total that can throw a wrench in their respective team’s trade talks if they so choose, due…

  16. Another loss puts Lakers in deep hole to even make playoffs

    Jan 9, 2013, 12:15 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Houston Rockets

    For the past five years, it has taken at least 45 wins to make the playoffs in the Western Conference (technically Utah had 36 wins last season because of the lockout, but that was a 45-win pace). Coming into Tuesday night, Denver was the eight seed in the West and they are on pace for…

  18. Lakers problems: It’s all about the defense

    Jan 6, 2013, 9:28 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Pau Gasol cannot find his place in the Mike D’Antoni offense. Steve Nash is still clearly not fully used to his new teammates. The Lakers lack shooters. With all the talent the Buss family is paying a pretty penny (well, many pennies) for we all expected an exceptional offense from the Lakers. So it’s been…

  19. Lakers vs. Clippers: Not a battle for soul of L.A., but a real battle

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant brushes past Los Angeles Clippers' Paul during their NBA preseason game in Los Angeles

    The soul of Los Angeles is not at stake on Friday night when the Clippers “host” the Lakers at Staples Center. First off, Los Angeles sold its soul for year-around 70 degree weather  long ago. Second, Los Angeles is a Lakers town. Trust me, I live there, and while Clippers fans are no longer afraid to…

    Hawks forward Smith reacts after a shot in the first half during their game against the Celtics in Game One of their NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs basketball game in Atlanta

    Play enough basketball and chances are you’ll run into a player who likes to justify his relentless jump shooting with a catchy phrase like, “you miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take” or “there’s a reason it’s called feeling it instead of thinking it” or maybe “I was open.” These people, of course,…

  21. Report: Steve Blake could return to Lakers in 2-3 weeks

    Dec 27, 2012, 12:05 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    Steve Nash is back with the Lakers and all is right with the world… well, except for the loss in Denver where the Lakers looked wooden and old, or the heavy minutes Nash and Kobe Bryant are racking up, or the fact the Lakers are below .500 and have a lot of work to do…

  22. No, the Lakers are not adding Derek Fisher. Or anyone else.

    Dec 26, 2012, 3:02 PM EDT

    fisher-kaman-flagrant-2

    Steve Nash is back for the Lakers and that means less Chris Duhon and Darius Morris. Which is good thing for the Lakers offense. But plenty of Lakers fans saw Derek Fisher ask out of the Dallas Mavericks and say, “we should totally pick him up, he could help us.” Which is absolutely not true,…

  23. With Nash on court, Lakers offense full of options

    Dec 26, 2012, 1:55 PM EDT

    Lakers' Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash celebrate after teammate Pau Gasol scored against the Knicks during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Lakers are 2-0 since the return of Steve Nash, both wins over quality teams in Golden State and New York. Let’s not go overboard with what this means — it means they won two games in December. It doesn’t speak to the playoffs. But we are starting to see just how things open up…

    LOS ANGELES — The Lakers beat the Knicks 100-94 on Christmas Day to earn their fifth straight victory, one that came in an intense and competitive game that came down to the final few possessions. Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony each finished with 34 points, J.R. Smith had 25 off the bench for New York,…

  25. Nash says playing Saturday iffy, but he will go Christmas Day for sure

    Dec 21, 2012, 5:34 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    Steve Nash watch has reached its final days — sometime in the next few days Nash is going to be back on the court as a Laker. The only question is Saturday against Golden State or Christmas Day against the Knicks? Nash hinted Christmas, as reported by Mark Medina at the Daily News. “There’s probably…
