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. Nov 23 - 10:09 PM

Date:

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.
Nov 22 - 12:33 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.
Nov 20 - 2:56 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.
Nov 18 - 11:38 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.
Nov 16 - 10:10 PM

Anthony Morrow scored just 10 points on 4-of-15 shooting with two threes, three boards and one steal in 36 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Owners are going to see Jeremy Lamb's career-night of 24 points and 10 boards and consider jumping ship, but coming off a 28-point night of his own Morrow has earned a bit of patience here. He still got good minutes and plenty of shot attempts and even if Lamb does have staying power there's a solid 1-2 week window where he can still do some damage.
Nov 15 - 2:20 AM

Anthony Morrow had his minutes restriction lifted against the Celtics on Wednesday, finishing with 28 points, five rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers on 11-of-16 from the field.

He played 31 minutes and the Thunder have made it pretty clear that he'll be a big part of their offense. Morrow scored 10 points in his 14-minute debut on Tuesday and he should be able to flirt with 20 points per game with multiple treys until OKC gets some guys back. He should be owned in all standard leagues.
Nov 12 - 11:06 PM

Anthony Morrow (knee) will be available to play up to 30 minutes vs. the Celtics on Wednesday.

He may not get that high, but it's a significant increase after he was limited to 14 minutes in his season debut on Tuesday. His playing time is a threat to starters Jeremy Lamb and Lance Thomas, but the Thunder are still short-handed enough to give all three players substantial minutes. Give Morrow a look if you're in need of scoring and 3-pointers.
Nov 12 - 6:23 PM

Anthony Morrow made his Thunder debut on Tuesday finishing with 10 points and one 3-pointer in 14 minutes.

He was limited to 10-17 minutes coming into Tuesday's game but it was nice to see him back healthy. As he progresses, Morrow could emerge as a solid pickup for his 3-point shooting but will need to carve out more minutes before becoming a standard league asset. Keep a close eye on him for now.
Nov 11 - 10:49 PM

Anthony Morrow (knee) will make his Thunder debut Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

Morrow will come off the bench, and he'll be limited to 10-17 minutes as he's eased into the rotation. Jeremy Lamb is currently the Thunder's starting shooting guard, and he's been playing well, so his job looks safe for now. Morrow is more of a 3-point specialist, but he could carve out a role as the Thunder's sixth man and sustain value with the eventual returns of Kevin Durant (foot) and Russell Westbrook (hand). If you got a guy to cut, Morrow looks like a quality add in standard leagues for owners seeking some 3-point shooting.
Nov 11 - 6:34 PM

Anthony Morrow (knee) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Kings.

Morrow went through practice on Saturday, and Scott Brooks has said that he’s getting close to making his return, but Sunday will not be the day. The Thunder currently only have nine healthy bodies on their roster, so he'll have plenty of opportunity when he does finally return to the court. If you need some 3-point shooting, Morrow looks like a solid add in standard leagues.
Nov 9 - 5:24 PM

Anthony Morrow went through practice on Saturday and could make his debut on Sunday against the Kings.

The Thunder are running out of guys and would likely plug Morrow into the starting lineup. He's more of a catch-and-shoot guys, so he won't be asked to put the ball on the floor a lot. Of course, guys like Kyle Korver and Klay Thompson have turned in huge fantasy value with that style. If you need treys, Morrow is worth a look.
Nov 8 - 2:24 PM

Anthony Morrow (knee) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

Head coach Scott Brooks said that Morrow is getting close, but he's not yet ready to make his return to the court. Morrow's original timetable had him making a return in late-November, but it appears he's going to beat that initial projection. He's going to have a lot of opportunity once he returns to a decimated Thunder squad, and he'll be a sure bet for plenty of 3-pointers. He makes sense as a speculative add in standard leagues.
Nov 7 - 6:40 PM

Anthony Morrow (knee) made a surprising return to practice on Thursday.

Additionally, Morrow has not been ruled out for Friday's game. Morrow was expected to be out until at least mid-November, so he's absolutely crushing the projected timetable. Owners in need of 3-pointers should give Morrow a long, hard look as the Thunder need him to play a sizable role when he's ready. It sounds like Friday could be the day.
Nov 6 - 2:26 PM

The Thunder announced that Anthony Morrow's sprained MCL could sideline him 4-6 weeks.

Morrow will be evaluated in about a week but we're unlikely to see him on the court until late November. Andre Roberson is already expected to start at SG which leaves Perry Jones as the most likely candidate to fill in at SF until Kevin Durant (foot surgery) returns to action. OKC's offense will fall primarily on Russell Westbrook, with most of his help coming from Serge Ibaka, Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb.
