Markieff Morris received high praise from his teammate in the Los Angeles Lakers Dennis Schroder.

Schroder says Morris has helped the Lakers significantly on both ends, calling him ‘tough’.

“He’s gotta get paid. He’s tough. He’s helping us on the defensive end, he has such toughness. On the offensive end, spreading the floor, getting offensive rebounds after free throws,” Schroder said about Morris, via Lakers Daily.

Markieff Morris has replaced Anthony Davis in the Lakers starting lineup, but he is expected to come off the bench when the superstar big man returns to action later this week.
