Frank Vogel reacted to Markieff Morris returning to the Lakers lineup after a two-game absence.

Morris didn’t play in the last two games of the Lakers, due to Vogel’s decision, but he was a starter against the Thunder.

For his part, Vogel called Morris a ‘true professional’ because of his patience to get on the floor.

“Frank Vogel had high praise for Wes Matthews. Said his performance tonight after numerous DNPs was “exceptional” and also praised Markieff Morris for being a “true professional” in terms of being patient to get on the floor,” Ryan Ward of Lakers Daily reports.

Markieff Morris had six points and four rebounds in 26 minutes of action.
