Los Angeles Lakers guard Darius Morris suffered a bruised left wrist Saturday while playing for the franchise’s D-League affiliate team, the D-Fenders, against the Dakota Wizards. Morris was examined today by Dr. Steven Shin of the Kerlan Jobe Orthopedic Clinic and his status is listed as day-to-day.
Morris, a rookie out of Michigan, has appeared in 13 games for the Lakers this season, averaging 2.7 points and 1.1 assists in 10.3 minutes.
Selected by the Lakers in the second round (41st overall) of the 2011 NBA Draft, Morris appeared in 67 games (53 starts) in two seasons at the University of Michigan, averaging 9.9 points, 2.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists. Morris became the 51st Wolverine to be drafted into the NBA and was an All-Big Ten Third Team selection last season. The first Wolverine to lead the Big Ten in assists since Gary Grant in 1988, Morris set a Michigan record for assists in a single season (235) last year.
