The Thunder got a lift from Anthony Morrow on Sunday, as he came off the bench for 14 points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds, one steal and one block in 24 minutes.
This was only Morrow's second double-digit scoring game of the season, and he saw more opportunities tonight with Dion Waiters (14 points) starting in place of Kevin Durant (hamstring). Morrow's fantasy appeal is restricted to 3-point shooting, and even then he's not worth touching in standard formats. Nov 22 - 9:46 PM

Anthony Morrow will return to the bench for Friday's game against the Knicks.

Morrow has been dreadful as a starter, compiling averages of just 5.8 points and 1.3 three-pointers per game on 37.5 percent shooting. Dion Waiters will replace him in the starting five for tonight's game, and Morrow will be lucky if his minutes exceed the low-teens.
Nov 20 - 7:58 PM

Anthony Morrow was invisible despite starting in place of Kevin Durant (hamstring) on Sunday, going scoreless with two assists and one turnover in 15 minutes.

OKC had won their previous five games vs. the Celtics but they fell tonight, 85-100, primarily because they got a combined 13 points from starters not named Russell Westbrook (27 points) or Serge Ibaka (16 points). He'll be better most nights, but in most leagues Morrow belongs on the waiver wire.
Nov 15 - 9:44 PM

Anthony Morrow scored 12 points with one rebound, one steal and two 3-pointers in a start against the 76ers on Friday.

This is pretty much the expectation for Morrow. He should score in the low double-digits, hit some treys, and not do much else. He'll have low-end value in the next week.
Nov 14 - 3:23 AM

Anthony Morrow will start for Kevin Durant (hamstring) on Friday.

It'll probably stick because getting a shooter next to Russell Westbrook makes sense. Morrow probably won't take a ton of shots and doesn't do much else besides score, so he's more of a deep-league play.
Nov 13 - 7:52 PM

Anthony Morrow was a healthy DNP-CD on Sunday, and coach Billy Donovan said it was a matchup-based decision vs. the Suns.

"I wanted to put some length on [Brandon Knight and Eric Bledsoe]," Donovan said. "When you talk about Russell [Westbrook] and [Andre] Roberson, those guys have length." He went on to say that Morrow could return to the rotation vs. the Wizards on Tuesday, but that matchup once again looks ominous for Morrow's role.
Nov 9 - 12:30 AM

Anthony Morrow played just five scoreless minutes in a loss to the Bulls on Thursday.

Morrow was very solid down the stretch for the Thunder last season (though they did have several injuries), so it's a little weird to see him struggle to get decent playing time. He's averaging just 2.8 points in 11.3 minutes per game, so he isn't worth owning in most leagues unless coach Billy Donovan tweaks his rotation.
Nov 6 - 10:22 AM

Anthony Morrow is working to quicken his shot release.

"I feel like it can be done," he said. Morrow will play a reserve role on a re-loaded Thunder squad this season, and he's only worth a look in leagues where you're desperate for 3-point help.
Sep 28 - 1:29 PM

Anthony Morrow hit five 3-pointers and finished with 19 points on 7-of-17 shooting, six rebounds and two steals in 26 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Mix the Kings defense with Russell Westbrook and Anthony Morrow and this is going to happen. Unless you're allergic to 3-point shooting, he should be in all active lineups.
Apr 11 - 3:05 AM

The Spurs limited Anthony Morrow to seven points on 2-of-8 shooting in 25 minutes off the bench on Tuesday.

Since the All-Star break, Spurs' opponents are shooting 37.6 percent from deep. That's relatively high, but San Antonio is also limiting opportunities -- their 18.4 three-point attempts against ranks 29th, higher than only the Trail Blazers. Morrow has been red-hot in recent weeks, especially for owners seeking 3-pointers, and he's safe to keep active.
Apr 7 - 11:19 PM

Anthony Morrow lit it up from beyond the arc on Sunday, scoring 22 points on 8-of-15 shooting, to go with six 3-pointers, four rebounds, two assists and a steal through 36 minutes of action.

Morrow has been on quite the roll lately, scoring in double figures in 13 of his last 14 games. He doesn't have much competition for minutes, and he has the green light to go bombs-away from beyond the arc, so he should not be sitting on any waiver wires.
Apr 5 - 6:43 PM

Anthony Morrow caught fire against the Mavs on Wednesday, making 11-of-16 from the field for 32 points with four rebounds, one steal and six 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

He's obviously a system fit with Russell Westbrook breaking down defenses. Morrow has been locked in from deep, making 65.2 percent from that range in his last five with averages of 14.6 points, 2.2 boards, 0.4 steals and 3.0 treys. He has to be owned in all standard leagues.
Apr 2 - 2:26 AM

Anthony Morrow, who has been very quiet for three straight games, stunk again on Wednesday in an ugly 130-91 loss to the Spurs, finishing with six points and not much else in 17 minutes.

Morrow can be forgiven for tonight's performance, as the Spurs blitzed the Thunder by 39 points. Morrow still has plenty of potential given all the OKC injuries, and we would not be surprised to see him get hot again against the Jazz on Saturday.
Mar 26 - 2:59 AM

Anthony Morrow scored 12 points with four 3-pointers on Tuesday, and he started the second half ahead of Dion Waiters.

The bad news is that he didn't have a single rebound, assist, steal or block in 30 minutes of court-time. His second-half start may have been a temporary matchup-based move by Scott Brooks, but it's equally possible that Morrow will continue to start alongside Russell Westbrook, Kyle Singler, Enes Kanter and Steven Adams. Either way, he's a must-start fantasy player -- since Mar. 15 he's averaging 3.6 triples per game, trailing only Randy Foye (3.7) and J.R. Smith (4.2).
Mar 24 - 11:33 PM

Anthony Morrow stepped up after Andre Roberson's ankle injury on Sunday, scoring 12 points with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, two steals and one block in 30 minutes.

He could earn more than his usual 28 minutes per game if Roberson misses more games, especially with Kevin Durant (foot) already on the shelf indefinitely. Morrow has been excellent lately, shooting lights out while averaging 17.3 points, 4.2 triples and 1.0 steals over his previous six games, so make sure he's not still available in your leagues.
