Marcus Morris played just 18 minutes on Monday, scoring five points on 2-of-8 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Morris logged 33 minutes on Saturday and this derails the small amount of momentum he had made. If he heats up we'll let you know, but he's just a deep league asset at this time.

Marcus Morris played 33 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday with 17 points, two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

It's clear he is going to benefit with Goran Dragic out of town. The Suns used about 17 percent of their possessions with three-guard sets, so that really opens up some minutes at forward. Morris scored 14 points in 25 minutes on Friday and has shot the ball over 53 percent in each of his last two. He's worth a look in standard leagues.
Feb 21 - 11:04 PM

Marcus Morris, who scored a career-high 34 points on Friday, finished Sunday's road loss with just five points on 2-of-8 shooting, one 3-pointer and six rebounds.

He played 22 minutes without any assists, steals or blocks, and owners hoping that he'd stay hot vs. the Kings' defense were sorely disappointed. Friday's 34-point outburst was nine points above his previous season-high and he's just a borderline option in 12-team leagues.
Feb 9 - 1:07 AM

Marcus Morris had a career-night setting highs in scoring (34) and rebounding (12) in Friday's win over the Jazz.

Morris hit 11-of-17 shots (5-of-7 3PTs, 7-of-8 FTs) with two steals and a block in 33 minutes, and he's certainly on the radar as a pickup, but Alex Len's absence certainly had a role in this. Len is expected to be out through the All Star break at least, so there's a small ramp for owners to take a test drive on, and with this game he's a top 75-100 guy over the past month. Plan accordingly.
Feb 7 - 3:41 AM

Marcus and Markieff Morris are being investigated by Phoenix police for their role in an alleged assault from Saturday, according to CBS 5 News in Phoenix.

The details are not yet known, but the alleged assault occurred in central Phoenix outside of a gym. The Morris twins are basically inseparable and have almost the exact same tattoos. We'll look for an update, but neither twin is expected to be suspended in the near future, if at all. Marcus scored six points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

Marcus Morris shouted at coach Jeff Horacek on Wednesday and only played 14 minutes with eight points and one turnover.

Yeah, yelling at your coach isn't the best way to get playing time and Morris has already apologized. "Gotta be a better professional for my younger teammates and can't let my emotions get the best of me," Morris wrote on Twitter afterwards. "Love my coach and my team. Great win." This is really the first blip on the radar for Marcus, so he should be ready to roll on Friday against the Spurs. He's not worth owning in standard leagues. You can check out the video of him shouting in the link below.
Jan 8 - 3:01 AM

Marcus Morris hit 7-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for 18 points, five rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block off the bench on Wednesday.

Morris had scored nine or fewer points in three of his previous four games, so there's no reason to get too excited about tonight's mini explosion.

Marcus Morris hit six 3-pointers off the bench on Friday against the Kings, finishing with 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting with nine rebounds, five assists and one steal in 28 minutes.

We're not entirely sure he and Markieff (17 points, two rebounds, three steals, one three) don't sometimes switch jerseys but all kidding aside it's a great night for the other Morris twin. He'll have a hard time having more than borderline value in 12-team standard leagues, but if he can build off this we'll let you know.

Marcus Morris scored 25 points off the Suns' bench against the Heat on Tuesday, adding five rebounds, four assists, two steals and five 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

Morris has pretty much vanished since being replaced in the starting lineup by P.J. Tucker, so this was likely a fluke. We'll let you know if he can muster up a few more performances like this, but for now he belongs on the waiver wire in anything but the deepest of leagues.

Marcus Morris said he doesn't mind coming off the Suns' bench after being replaced in Monday's starting lineup by P.J. Tucker.

Morris played 23 minutes to Tucker's 31 during Monday's loss as head coach Jeff Hornacek attempted to put Morris with a unit that would get him more shots. "For me as a basketball player, it should come natural," Morris said. "If I go to a different unit, I still have the same mindset. I still am going to compete. I still want to win. It's the same for me." While Morris holds some deep league value, he can be safely left on the waiver wire in standard fantasy leagues.

Marcus Morris came off the Suns' bench on Tuesday for seven points and six rebounds in 23 minutes.

P.J. Tucker took Morris' spot in the starting lineup, but Marcus still logged the most minutes of any reserve. That's encouraging enough to hold him in deep leagues, but he belongs on the waiver wire in standard fantasy formats.

Marcus Morris will shift to the Suns' bench on Tuesday, allowing P.J. Tucker to start at small forward vs. the Pacers.

Morris has been struggling offensively while Tucker has played well since returning from his season-opening suspension, so this isn't a surprising move. Hopefully the demotion will light a fire under Morris.
Tue, Dec 2, 2014 08:08:00 PM

Marcus Morris hit just 2-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for five points and on rebound on Wednesday.

He got off to a hot start, but has cooled off, scoring 5, 13 and 3 points in each of his last three games. He might still hold some deep-league value, but you can probably do better off your waiver wire in standard ones.
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 12:58:00 AM

Marcus Morris played 32 minutes against the Celtics on Monday with 13 points, five rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

The assists are a career high and he rebounded nicely off a 1-of-10 game from Saturday. Morris has been better in the games sans P.J. Tucker, so he might be a solid asset should the Suns keep Tucker out of the lineup. You can leave him on the wire in standard leagues for now.
