Marcus Morris scored 14 points with six rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday.
He took a shot to his nose in the first half and was bleeding, but Morris didn't need to go to the locker room after the training staff was able to patch him up. Unlike his brother Markieff in Washington, Marcus is playing well these days with with two strong games coming into this one, averaging 15.5 points, 8.0 boards, 2.0 dimes and 2.0 treys over his previous two. Still, he is likely going to have a back-to-back restriction and he doesn't offer much outside of scoring, so he's probably not a guy most 12-team owners should target. Jan 18 - 9:37 PM

Date:

Boston won their seventh straight game on Thursday, with Marcus Morris coming off the bench for 19 points (7-of-13 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal.

It was a tale of two halfs for the Celtics, who trailed by as many as 22 points in the first half before pulling away for a 114-103 victory. Morris was a steadying force early in the game and he moved well throughout, so maybe his nagging left knee injury is finally behind him. He added three 3-pointers in just 24 minutes tonight, but has been too inconsistent to trust in typical leagues.
Jan 11 - 5:57 PM

Brad Stevens' said that he'll be upping Marcus Moris' minutes limit a bit for Thursday's game against the 76ers.

Morris said on Tuesday that he'll no longer be working with a minutes limit for Thursday's game in London, but Stevens indicated on Wednesday that he'll still be conscious of Morris' minutes moving forward. That said, with just one game on the schedule for Philly this week, it sounds like there's a chance Morris could see his playing time hit the 30-minute mark on Thursday.
Jan 10 - 9:55 AM

Marcus Morris said that he will not have any minutes restrictions for Thursday's game vs. the Sixers.

Morris has yet to play more than 27 minutes in any game this season. He's also been held out of back-to-backs. Hopefully, he's turning the corner in regards to his knee issue, but as of now, he's still difficult to trust in standard leagues. We'll see how he is deployed Thursday and over the next few contests.
Jan 9 - 9:44 AM

Marcus Morris made start for Al Horford (knee) on Saturday with eight points, four rebounds, one assist and one block in 26 minutes against the Nets.

He sandwiched his DNP-REST on Friday with 25 minutes on Wednesday and this game, so maybe his playing time is trending up again. However, his back-to-back restriction makes it hard to add him in standard leagues.
Jan 6 - 9:05 PM

Marcus Morris will start next to Aron Baynes on Saturday against the Nets.

No surprises here with Al Horford out. Morris is going to have a minutes limit on a back-to-back after missing Friday, so he's really not worth owning in most fantasy leagues.
Jan 6 - 5:59 PM

Marcus Morris (knee) will not play against the Wolves on Friday.

He is expected to play against the Nets on Saturday on this back-to-back set. Morris is still not playing in back-to-back sets and he cleared the 20-minute mark on Wednesday for the first time since Dec. 8. While he's out, Semi Ojeleye should be the next man up while Aron Baynes could see additional run against the bigger Wolves frontcourt.
Jan 5 - 5:13 PM

Marcus Morris (knee) is listed as out in the game notes for Friday's contest vs. Minnesota.

The Celtics continue to limit Morris' workload as he works his way back from a nagging knee injury. Friday is the front end of a back-to-back, so Morris will likely return on Saturday when the C's take on the Nets. He started Wednesday vs. Cleveland, but finished with just three points on 1-of-6 shooting, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes. He belongs on waivers in standard leagues.

Jan 5 - 11:21 AM

Marcus Morris started vs. Cleveland on Wednesday and had three points on 1-of-6 shooting, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens will mix-and-match his lineups based on opponents, and tonight he opted to go small vs. the Cavs. They face the Wolves on Friday, with Karl-Anthony Towns and Taj Gibson in the frontcourt, so this was likely just a one-game promotion for Morris. He's best left on the wire in nearly all leagues.
Jan 4 - 1:27 AM

Marcus Morris will replace Aron Baynes in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

This move makes sense going up against the small ball Cavs, and Morris is a more attractive option when in the starting lineup. Over nine starts this season, Morris has put in averages of 13.4 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.7 triples, 1.6 assists and 1.0 turnover per contest on 44.6% shooting.
Jan 3 - 6:21 PM

Marcus Morris (left knee) said he didn't experience any pain during Sunday's game, which he finished with 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting, four 3-pointers and two rebounds in 17 minutes.

When asked before the game whether Morris is still on a minute-limit, coach Brad Stevens replied, "I think so. I haven't gone into that yet with the training staff about exactly what the timeline is." He added that Morris is an important part of Boston's depth, saying, "We need him to score the ball." Even with a green-light offensively and his knee on the mend, Morris is an unreliable fantasy option with his minutes typically in the low-20s.

Marcus Morris (knee) will be available to play Sunday against the Nets.

Morris logged 19 minutes off the bench on Thursday, and he should be looking at a similar workload today, so he's not a great target in most settings. With Morris active, Aron Baynes might not play as much.
Sun, Dec 31, 2017 04:01:00 PM

Marcus Morris (knee) is expected to play against the Nets on Sunday.

He was back in action on Thursday and only played 19 minutes. Morris' knee problem won't be going away for the foreseeable future, so he's really not a guy fantasy owners can count on in 14-team leagues.
Sat, Dec 30, 2017 02:48:00 PM

Marcus Morris hit 4-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, four rebounds and a block in 19 minutes off the bench on Thursday.

He missed Wednesday's game with his sore knee and isn't likely to play in back-to-backs until he's fully healthy, making him a pretty risky player to own in fantasy leagues right now. If he gets hot and healthy though, he'll be worth consideration. Just keep an eye on him.
Thu, Dec 28, 2017 11:27:00 PM

Marcus Morris (knee) is available for Thursday's game vs. Houston.

Morris will have restrictions for a while and was held out on Wednesday on the front end of a back-to-back set. Expect him to flirt with about 20 minutes tonight, meaning Aron Baynes may not play as much with Guerschon Yabusele likely falling out of the rotation.
