Markieff Morris will be in the starting lineup of the Lakers for the game against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday.

Morris will replace Anthony Davis, who will miss the contest, due to a left adductor tightness.

Alongside Markieff Morris, Andre Drummond, Talen Horton-Tucker, Wesley Matthews and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will also start for the Lakers.

The defending champions will be without five players in the game, whereas the Rockets will be extremely undermanned, with 11 players being out.
