Wesley Matthews and Markieff Morris don’t have enough playing time in the last few games of the Los Angeles Lakers.

As a result, the Lakers and head coach Frank Vogel are looking for ways to give more time on the floor to Matthews and Morris.

“When you have guys like ‘Kieff and Wes that are really good players, they fit our culture, they represent who we want to be on the floor with the toughness, the selflessness, the play hard mindsets and just a lot of veteran savvy, you just don’t want those guys going too long where they’re getting DNPs or not staying involved.

We’ll continue to look on it at a game-to-game basis so that we’re keeping all of our weapons sharp. But certainly we’re seeing some good things with the rotation we’re using right now, so we’ll keep evaluating game to game,” Vogel said, via Lakers Nation.

Both Matthews and Morris are under one-year contracts with the Lakers.
