The Thunder are expected to keep Anthony Morrow for next season.
His $3.48 million contract for next season will be guaranteed if the Thunder don't cut him before July, but that's not a bad value with the rising salary cap. The sharpshooter is also one of Kevin Durant's better friends on the team and he's a solid locker room guy. If Morrow does return to OKC, he likely won't see enough minutes to impact fantasy leagues.

Anthony Morrow would like to return to the Thunder.

The Thunder own a $3.48 million team option on Morrow for 2016-17, so Morrow said he knows the decision isn't in his hands. While the 30-year-old is a capable scorer, he just doesn't seen enough minutes to matter outside of deeper fantasy leagues.
Jun 2 - 9:43 AM

Anthony Morrow scored 19 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers against the Blazers on Wednesday.

He wasn't just shooting in this game as the Thunder looked to fill the void left by two of the NBA's best scorers. Morrow won't have value unless both Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are rested again.
Apr 7 - 12:55 AM

Anthony Morrow is starting at SF vs. the Blazers on Wednesday, in place of Kevin Durant (rest).

Morrow is worth a glance as a punt DFS option but that's about it, as he contributes very little beyond some points and 3-pointers. Someone is going to need to score tonight with both Durant and Russell Westbrook resting, however, so don't be surprised to see Morrow bombing away from the perimeter.
Apr 6 - 9:48 PM

Anthony Morrow returned to the bench with Kevin Durant (toe) active on Wednesday, posting 14 points with two 3-pointers and two rebounds in just 18 minutes of action.

Morrow made 3-of-4 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs in one of his better bench performances of the season, carrying over some momentum from his 20-point game as a starter on Monday. He's in a nice groove right now but remains a mere 3-point specialist in leagues with 14 or fewer teams.
Jan 7 - 1:19 AM

Anthony Morrow dropped a season-high 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting on Monday vs. the Kings, adding one board, one steal and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He drew the start at small forward in this one with Kevin Durant (toe) on the sidelines, but it was very encouraging to see him log this many minutes. KD is day-to-day, but give Morrow a look if you need 3-pointers just in case KD misses more time. Prior to Monday, Morrow was shooting 41.4 percent from beyond the arc.
Jan 5 - 2:32 AM

Anthony Morrow will start for Kevin Durant (toe) on Monday against the Kings.

It'll be a team effort from the Thunder as Dion Waiters should get more minutes off the bench. Enes Kanter should also benefit with more usage. It's still going to be all Russell Westbrook tonight.
Jan 4 - 7:49 PM

Anthony Morrow scored 10 points in 19 minutes against the Lakers on Saturday with one assist and two 3-pointers.

He picked up a little extra run because of garbage time. Morrow is usually going to be around 12-15 minutes most nights because Dion Waiters actually hasn't played too poorly.

Anthony Morrow (personal) will return on Saturday against the Lakers.

He missed Thursday due to a personal reason and should go back to his role of getting minutes in the mid teens. Morrow is not a someone fantasy owners should be using right now.
Sat, Dec 19, 2015 03:29:00 PM

Anthony Morrow (personal) will not suit up for Thursday's game against the Cavs.

Dion Waiters and D.J. Augustin will likely split Morrow's minutes, and Cameron Payne will have the opportunity to get into the rotation tonight. Waiters is someone to consider as a punt play in DFS (revenge game?) but Payne isn't likely to get enough minutes to matter.
Thu, Dec 17, 2015 06:49:00 PM

Anthony Morrow is back in the Thunder rotation because of the spacing he can provide.

"In order to play small, you want to create spacing," Billy Donovan said. "He creates spacing on the floor and provides that shooting. You have to play him to open the floor for Kevin and Russell." Even with an ability to hit the 3-point shot, Morrow's minimal role doesn't warrant fantasy attention.

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.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 09:46:00 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.
Fri, Nov 20, 2015 07:58:00 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.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 09:44:00 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.
