Anthony Morrow was a late scratch for Sunday's game against the Clippers due to soreness in his right shoulder.

Morrow has been averaging 9.5 points with 1.5 3-pointers in 24.3 minutes per game this season, so he hasn't really been worth owning outside of deeper leagues. Expect Dion Waiters and Reggie Jackson to benefit the most with Morrow on the sidelines, while Jeremy Lamb could step back into the rotation as well.

Anthony Morrow has been in a major shooting slump during the month of January, connecting on just 11 of his 42 3-pointers.

He ranked 4th in the NBA in 3-point percentage last season at 45 percent, but this season he is currently in 45th place while shooting a career-low 36 percent. "I don’t look it as a slump," Morrow said. "I don’t really call it that. It’s more of a course of the season thing, a marathon. You can make 10 3s one game and miss your next 20, miss 20 and make your next five or six." While Morrow should be able to bounce back soon, the arrival of Dion Waiters has further complicated his playing time, making him tough to own in most formats.

Anthony Morrow made the most of his 18 minutes vs. the Heat, scoring 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting with two 3-pointers, four rebounds and one steal.

Morrow has scored 12 points twice in OKC's past five games, but he's been held to just two points in the other three contests. That inconsistency isn't likely to improve with Dion Waiters lurking in the backcourt, reducing Morrow to a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
Jan 20 - 10:16 PM

Anthony Morrow played 26 minutes on Wednesday, but hit just 3-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for eight points and two rebounds.

The minutes were there and he came in hot, but never got it going tonight. The good news for Morrow is that Dion Waiters didn't hurt his minutes tonight, but that could change with time.
Jan 8 - 2:07 AM

Anthony Morrow scored 17 points in Monday's blowout loss, hitting 6-of-11 shots with 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one three in 29 minutes off the bench.

Morrow gets this nice line amidst the acquisition of Dion Waiters and he wasn't exactly doing much prior to this. Owners can safely ignore Morrow until he does it again.
Jan 6 - 2:51 AM

Anthony Morrow scored 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting off the bench, to go with five rebounds, three 3-pointers, one assist, one block, and one turnover as the Thunder defeated the Spurs.

Morrow can be viewed as a 3-point specialist in deeper leagues, but his production is too sporadic to be considered a viable option in standard leagues.

Anthony Morrow scored 14 points on 4-of-11 shooting off of the bench on Sunday, adding six rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

He has now scored 11 or more points in his last three games, and has become a reliable option off of the Thunder bench. However, Morrow doesn't do much else besides contributing points and 3-pointers, so he is only an option in deeper leagues.

Anthony Morrow made three 3-pointers on his way to 11 points with two rebounds, one assist and one steal against the Cavs on Thursday.

He was a big reason why the Thunder put up a 31-point third quarter. Morrow is not going to be getting consistent minutes, so he's only an option in deep leagues as a specialist.
Thu, Dec 11, 2014 11:12:00 PM

Anthony Morrow hit two 3-pointers and 3-of-7 shots overall, finishing with eight points, two rebounds, three assists and two steals in 24 minutes.

While the idea of Morrow excelling in a short-handed situation was fun the larger reality is that he could function quite well next to Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. Don't sleep on the late-round value averaging 11.7 points, 1.9 treys and 1.0 steals on the season.

Anthony Morrow was OKC's best bench player on Sunday, contributing 16 points and a career-high-tying 12 rebounds in a narrow loss to the visiting Warriors.

Morrow played 33 minutes and he's worth fantasy owners' attention until Kevin Durant returns to action. He's scored double-digit points in six of the past eight games, he's a deadly 3-point shooter, and he's recorded at least one steal in six straight games. Just be ready to cut him loose if the return of Durant and Perry Jones slashes into his playing time.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 10:09:00 PM

Anthony Morrow hit three triples and 4-of-11 shots overall on Friday, finishing with 11 points, two boards and one steal in 25 minutes off the bench.

Morrow missed his window and it sounds like the cavalry is coming soon, but one had to know he'd get things turned around a little bit after a short cold stretch entering tonight. Feel free to move on in 12-14 team formats, but don't be surprised if he carves out value as a 3-point shooter sometime down the road.
Sat, Nov 22, 2014 12:33:00 AM

Anthony Morrow played 28 minutes and hit 4-of-9 shots for 10 points, without making a 3-pointer.

If he's not going to hit threes, he has no fantasy value. Despite getting at least 28 minutes in all but one of his games this season, Morrow hasn't really done anything outside of a 28-point game on Nov. 12. Maybe he'll get it turned around at some point, but the odds aren't in his favor with the return of Andre Roberson from a foot injury tonight.
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 02:56:00 AM

Anthony Morrow logged 34 minutes off the Thunder bench on Tuesday, but he scored only eight points with five rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Morrow hit a 3-pointer and he doesn't usually contribute many boards or defensive stats, which take the sting out of his low-scoring game. He blew up for 28 points and four triples last Wednesday but is just 7-of-31 from the field since then (22.6 percent), so fantasy owners should deploy him with caution.
Tue, Nov 18, 2014 11:38:00 PM

Anthony Morrow shot just 1-of-9 from the field on Sunday, finishing a tough home loss vs. Houston with four points, one rebound, one steal and three personal fouls in 29 minutes.

Morrow poured in 28 points vs. the Celtics on Wednesday but he's struggled since then, going a combined 5-of-25 from the field in OKC's past two games. He'll be better most nights and is worth owning if you're in need of scoring and 3-pointers, but don't expect well-rounded production.
