Marcus Morris caught an Adreian Payne elbow to his face and went to the locker room in the fourth quarter on Friday.
Morris was on the floor face down for about two minutes. He had a towel over his nose and went to the locker room without assistance, but he was walking back slowly. There's a good chance Morris broke his nose and could miss time. If he's out, Jon Leuer would get a bump and perhaps Stanley Johnson gets in the mix. Morris finished with 15 points, seven boards, one dime and three 3-pointers. Dec 9 - 10:18 PM

Marcus Morris grabbed a season-high 10 rebounds during Wednesday's road loss, adding seven points on 3-of-10 shooting with two assists, one block and one turnover.

Morris did his damage in 34 minutes and it was nice to see him hitting the glass hard -- he came in averaging just 3.9 boards per game, which is lower than guys like Tony Snell, Luis Scola, Evan Turner and Goran Dragic. He's still just a late-round guy in the vast majority of formats.
Dec 7 - 9:49 PM

Marcus Morris made a season-high five 3-pointers en route to 21 points on Sunday, going 7-of-12 from the field overall with five boards and two steals in 35 minutes.

Morris has double-digit points in six straight games, but his roto value has been limited by a lack of supporting stats -- he's averaging just 4.0 boards, 2.1 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.4 blocks this season, while shooting 43.3 percent from the field. He remains a viable low-end fantasy forward.
Dec 4 - 8:31 PM

Marcus Morris had another strong game on Wednesday with 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting, four rebounds, three assists, three blocks, one steal and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

Morris went through a very rough stretch earlier this month, during which he scored single-digit points in five out of eight games. He's since hit 10+ points in four straight, and is averaging 19.0 points in his past two, so don't hesitate to grab him if he's floating on your waiver wire.
Nov 30 - 10:36 PM

Marcus Morris hit 8-of-18 shots for 18 points, four rebounds, and a steal in Tuesday’s win against the Hornets.

Morris led the Pistons with 36 minutes and was second on the team with 18 points. After some subpar performances in recent games, he shot the ball well and drained two from beyond the arc. He faces the Celtics on Wednesday who are amongst the top four in fantasy points allowed to small forwards. His solidified role makes him a safe play most nights and could be deployed against Boston on Wednesday.
Nov 29 - 9:48 PM

Marcus Morris was hampered by foul trouble on Friday, but he still scored 17 points on 8-of-13 shooting with three rebounds and two turnovers in 22 minutes.

Morris couldn't get out of his own way tonight, which resulted in more minutes for backup PF Jon Leuer (11 points, 11 boards in 33 minutes). Morris was terrific in crunch time tonight and he posted a decent line considering the circumstances. At least he'll be rested for Saturday's back-to-back game vs. the Thunder.
Nov 25 - 10:11 PM

Marcus Morris was very quiet vs. Miami on Wednesday, finishing with seven points, six assists, one rebound, one steal and one block in 26 minutes.

The playing time tied a season-low for Morris, but this game was an aberration. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (22 points, five boards) also played just 29 minutes, Ish Smith played 18 minutes, Andre Drummond played 26 minutes, and the Pistons leaned heavily on their bench in a blowout win vs. the visiting Heat. Don't read into this boxscore.
Nov 24 - 2:03 AM

Marcus Morris drained 10-of-16 shots during Saturday's narrow 94-92 loss to the Celtics, tallying 24 points, five boards, two assists, four 3-pointers and one turnover in 33 minutes.

Triples and points, that’s what Morris does. Consistency tends to be an issue, but he's fun to own on the nights he gets hot from beyond the arc, and he’s putting up eighth-round value on the year in standard 9-cat leagues. His upside isn't spectacular, but he's worth owning.
Nov 19 - 10:12 PM

Marcus Morris hit just 3-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points on Wednesday and has now scored seven or fewer points in there of his last four games.

Jon Leuer had 17 points, nine boards and a couple 3-pointers off the bench and might be ready to steal Morris' job. Morris still played 37 minutes, compared to Leuer's 27, but Leuer's been the better player over the last 10 days. Morris should bounce back, but Leuer has earned a spot on most fantasy rosters, averaging 11.8 points, 6.9 rebounds and 0.8 3-pointers in November.
Nov 17 - 7:13 AM

Marcus Morris hit just 3-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, six rebounds and five assists in 30 minutes of Monday's win over the Thunder.

Morris has really struggled in two of his last three games, hitting just 5-of-23 shots in the two bad ones. He was having a nice season prior to the recent struggles and is still starting, so we fully expect him to get back on track soon.
Nov 14 - 10:59 PM

Marcus Morris was held to four points vs. the Spurs on Friday, shooting 2-of-11 from the field with two rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal in 31 minutes.

That's what happens when you go into Kawhi Leonard's town. Morris was putting up averages of 16.4 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.5 3-pointers prior to this dud, so his owners should give him another chance.
Nov 12 - 12:50 AM

Marcus Morris scored 15 points with six rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

He's been on a roll to start the season. In his previous games, Morris averaged 18.0 points, 6.0 boards, 1.2 steals and 2.0 treys on 45.5 percent from the field. He was hot to start last year and did cool off, so he's more of a sell-high player. He should be owned while he's playing well.
Nov 5 - 11:19 PM

Marcus Morris hit 9-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for a season-high 22 points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal in Tuesday's win over the Knicks.

Morris had a season high in points and a season low in rebounds tonight, so look for him to come in somewhere in the middle on most nights. If he's available in your league he's worth a look, as he's scored in double figures every night, has hit at least one 3-pointer in each game, and is rebounding the ball well on most nights.
Nov 1 - 10:52 PM

Marcus Morris shot just 4-of-16 from the field to finish Sunday's home win with 11 points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal and three turnovers.

Morris logged 36 minutes and the lousy shooting will balance out in time -- he hit 43.1 percent of his shots last year, including 36.2 percent from downtown. His minutes are expected to dip this season, however, and he's just a low-end fantasy player due to limited statistical versatility.
Oct 30 - 8:38 PM

Marcus Morris scored 17 points on 7-of-14 shooting vs. the Magic on Friday.

He's still firmly ahead of Stanley Johnson (three points) on the depth chart and added eight boards, three assists and two treys in 29 minutes. This comes on the heels of a 17-point effort in the season opener with nine rebounds, three assists and two treys. His upside isn't great, but he's worth deploying while he's hot or until Johnson eats into his workload.
