Marcus Morris will not be available for the season opener of the Los Angeles Clippers against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday.

Morris is dealing with a knee injury (knee soreness) and will miss the first game of the season. The versatile forward did not play in any of the Clippers’ three preseason games.

Nicolas Batum will replace Morris in the starting lineup of the Clippers.
