It has been speculated that Markieff Morris, the Los Angeles Lakers striker, is not with the team in the NBA bubble in Orlando, Florida.
Lakers head coach Frank Vogel was not worried after his comments on Wednesday.
I asked Frank Vogel what Markieff Morris looked like. He said he would not comment on how players look in practice to protect their privacy. Then @mcten asked if Morris was here in Orlando. Vogel declined to answer.

30-year-old Morris joined the Lakers after the All Star break in February.
The striker only played in eight games with the Lakers before the novel corona virus paused the season on March 1
The Lakers took in the veteran to strengthen the second unit. Morris keeps his distance with his 3-point shooting, solid defense and toughness.
However, due to his apparent absence in the bubble, the Lakers could do without another key player if they continued their season.
Defender Avery Bradley decided not to attend at the end of the 2019-20 season. In addition, the former All-Star Rondo district has failed for a few weeks after a thumb injury.
Still, the Lakers have made no excuses as they focus on bringing a championship home. You are number 1 in the Western Conference.
The 2019-20 season will continue on July 30th.
