Marcus Morris scored eight points on 3-of-14 shooting with nine rebounds, one steal and two treys in Friday's loss to the Hornets.

The Morris twins have off-the-court stuff that may or may not be impacting their on-court performance and the Suns are in a prime spot for a letdown to finish the season. Though they play in San Antonio on Sunday and they'll have more than enough time to get there, they experienced a massive delay getting out of New Orleans and that just adds to the stale flavor. Morris hasn't been great lately, but he has still held late-round value this past week.
Apr 11 - 2:21 AM

Marcus Morris hit 5-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 12 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and two steals in Wednesday's loss to Dallas.

Morris has struggled recently, but been a nice pick up off the waiver wire this season. Next year may be a different story, but he's been pretty fun to own this season.
Apr 9 - 12:35 AM

Marcus Morris' struggles continued on Tuesday as he made only 3-of-10 shots to finish a blowout loss vs. the Hawks with eight points in 24 minutes.

Morris' playing time has bounced around from the low-20s to the high-30s over the past week, but the bigger issue is his inability to make shots. He's a combined 18-of-48 in the Suns' past five games (37.5 percent), though he at least aided owners tonight with four rebounds, one 3-pointer and one steal.
Apr 7 - 10:08 PM

Marcus Morris didn't make any of his three shots from the field against the Jazz on Saturday, making four shots at the line with six boards, two assists, three steals and one block.

He played 39 minutes and some of that was due to T.J. Warren not having it because of foul trouble. Morris will be at risk of losing playing time to Warren and Gerald Green, so he's a questionable player to own right now.
Apr 5 - 2:45 AM

Marcus Morris is listed as the probable starter to face the Jazz on Saturday.

T.J. Warren is outplaying Morris in a big way and Warren's off-ball skills are a better fit next to Eric Bledsoe. Marcus played just 24.0 minutes per game in his last two, which is down from 40.5 in his two games before that. He'll likely be closer to 24 tonight.
Apr 4 - 5:00 PM

Marcus Morris made 5-of-14 from the field for 10 points with four rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 26 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

He lost some playing time to T.J. Warren and there's absolutely a chance that is going to continue based on how this week is going for Warren. The Suns really don't have any power forwards besides the Morris brothers and Earl Barron, so Marcus can still get some run there, too. He's worth owning in standard leagues while Brandon Knight (ankle, heel) is out.
Apr 3 - 1:33 AM

Marcus Morris played 22 minutes against the Blazers during a 109-86 loss on Monday, scoring 11 points with one rebound, one steal and one 3-pointer.

The Suns were blown out, so Morris didn't play in the fourth quarter. He should be a safe bet for around 30 minutes, but the Suns losing ground in the standings could change their rotation to favor the young guys. Morris is still worth owning in standard leagues until Brandon Knight (ankle) gets back. As a side note, the Suns have been a complete disaster in the third quarter in their last four, posting a putrid 71.1 offensive efficiency rating in those four quarters combined.
Mar 31 - 1:49 AM

Marcus Morris scored 19 points in 44 minutes against the Blazers on Friday with 12 boards, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

He's been very busy on the glass with four double-digit board games in his last five, averaging 13.6 points, 9.8 boards, 3.6 dimes, 1.4 steals and 1.8 treys on 42.9 percent from the field. Brandon Knight (ankle) was very close to a return yet again tonight, so Marcus will likely be losing playing time in the near future. He's worth owning in standard leagues until Knight can actually make it through a warmup, though.
Mar 28 - 2:18 AM

Marcus Morris scored 19 points with three rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers on 7-of-11 from the field against the Kings on Wednesday.

Perhaps he's earned more playing time now that he's playing well, averaging 13.8 points, 8.2 boards, 1.2 steals and 1.6 treys on 48.3 percent from the field in his last five. Brandon Knight could be back soon, so Morris owners might want to start planning for his value to dip.
Mar 26 - 3:08 AM

Marcus Morris flirted with a triple-double during Sunday's 98-92 win over the Mavericks, scoring 11 points with 11 boards, seven assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

Brandon Knight (ankle) has a chance to return from injury on Wednesday vs. the Kings, but Morris has shown what he can do with extended minutes. Morris has posted averages of 13.6 points, 8.8 boards, 3.8 assists and 1.6 3-pointers over his last five games, and he certainly gave head coach Jeff Hornacek something to think about after this performance. Even though Knight's return would likely see Morris shift to the bench, he is simply too hot to let go of right now.
Mar 22 - 11:47 PM

Marcus Morris finally got it going against the Rockets on Saturday with 17 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

This was the production we were expecting since the Brandon Knight (ankle) injury. Morris should continue to log minutes and get shots in the first team, so he's worth owning in standard leagues. Knight still hasn't practiced yet and could miss another game or two. Although, if Morris is still on the wire, most of his value is probably behind him.
Mar 22 - 12:02 AM

Marcus Morris made 1-of-11 from the field for two points with 13 rebounds, four assists and no turnovers in 40 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday.

To make matters worse, Morris missed both attempts from the line to give him a true shooting percentage of 8.4. March has been a fiasco for his shooting, making just 33.3 percent from the field, which is even worse considering he's making 75.0 percent of his shots at the rim in that span. Awful shooting aside, Morris is still worth owning in standard leagues until Brandon Knight (ankle) gets back.
Mar 20 - 12:48 AM

Marcus Morris dropped 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting in another start in place of Brandon Knight (ankle), adding two 3-pointers, four rebounds and two assists to help the Suns defeat the Knicks.

Morris logged 39 minutes and he's established himself as a viable option while Knight is out, though fantasy owners should be wary of his FT shooting -- he was 0-of-4 at the line tonight and is just 58.3 percent in March.
Mar 15 - 11:51 PM

Marcus Morris hit 7-of-18 shots (including three treys) for 18 points, six rebounds and two assists in Friday's loss to the Hawks.

Morris has been performing at a late-round level despite a brutal shooting slump and he'll have mid-round upside if he ever truly gets hot. He should be owned in most standard formats.
