Forward Markieff Morris will sit out, and the team could be without additional players as well.
Markieff Morris will miss tomorrow's game vs. Lakers because of whiplash.
Bam Adebayo (left knee bruise), P.J. Tucker (left shoulder stinger) and Tyler Herro (lower back tightness) are questionable.
Caleb Martin (left thumb sprain) and Max Strus (left knee sprain) are probable

Afterward, words were exchanged on social media by not only Jokic and Morris, but even by their brothers.
With the exception of Jimmy Butler, everyone played poorly on the offensive end for Miami, leading to a blowout loss.
When Morris was leveled by Jokic, the Heat big man’s neck snapped backward, and a stretcher was brought onto the court in an abundance of caution, although Morris got up and walked under his own power.
At 7-3, Miami can still hold its head up high, as it is tied for second-place in the Eastern Conference.
With the defending NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks struggling to start the season, Miami can really put pressure on the rest of the conference and eliminate any remaining doubts that it is a true title contender.
