Marcus Morris had a big game off the bench in Boston's Game 1 win over Milwaukee, finishing with 21 points, even rebounds, and two triples in 35.5 minutes of action.
Morris was the only member of the second unit to play more than 16 minutes, and he played starter's minutes while starter Aron Baynes (zero points, 14.5 minutes) barely saw the floor. Although Morris wasn't terribly efficient from the field (8-of-20 shooting) in this one, we'd expect he'll continue to have the green light given the Celtics need his offense off the bench.

Marcus Morris (rest) is not expected to play Wednesday vs. the Nets.

Morris, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown will all be in uniform, but they'll only be used in an emergency scenario. They're fine, but they obviously should be avoided in fantasy hoops today.
Apr 11 - 6:25 PM

Marcus Morris (rest) will not play on Sunday against the Hawks.

Hey, maybe he won't get ejected. Kidding aside, the Celtics are basically going to swap Jayson Tatum for Morris for this game. Al Horford being back also takes time from Semi Ojeleye and Greg Monroe.
Apr 7 - 5:52 PM

Marcus Morris was ejected in the third quarter on Friday.

Hey, make it two Morris brothers getting tossed today with Markieff getting ejected in the first half. Marcus has now been ejected twice in the last six days. On Saturday, he was chatting with C.J. Miles and touched a ref after, but this time it was Bobby Portis that upset him. The Celtics are going to be really shorthanded at forward to finish this one.
Apr 6 - 9:13 PM

Marcus Morris was ejected on the last possession of Saturday's win over the Raptors.

C.J. Miles fouled Morris with 10 seconds left and the Celtics up 10, so Morris had some things to say. They were split up, but Morris kept talking moments led to eventually lead to the ejection. He was ejected between free throws, so Jabari Bird had to take the second one, so that's a fun fact. Before that, he was outstanding with 25 points, nine rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer. He's worth owning in most leagues right now, but beware of some rest on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Marcus Morris (ankle) will play against the Raptors on Saturday.

He should see a good amount of minutes at small forward tonight with the Celtics likely having to play bigger because of their lack of guards. Morris is a little risky to use and his ankle issue is more legit than some guys getting the night off because he rolled it on Monday.
Mar 31 - 5:44 PM

Marcus Morris (sprained right ankle) said he will not play Wednesday against the Jazz.

This isn't surprising considering Morris said he "could be out a couple days" after spraining his right ankle during Monday's win, and for now, we'll be considering him questionable for Saturday's game against the Raptors. With Morris unavailable, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier will see an uptick in usage, and there will be more minutes for guys like Greg Monroe and Semi Ojeleye.

Marcus Morris (ankle) said that he "could be out a couple days" after injuring his right ankle in Monday's win over the Suns.

Morris landed on the foot of Suns guard Troy Daniels after attempting a 3-pointer in the third quarter. He went to the locker room and did not return. Fortunately, X-rays came back negative. He was walking with a slight limp in the locker room but downplayed the seriousness of the injury. "I could be out a couple days, but nothing long term," said Morris. "So, I’m good." We'll consider him doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. Utah. If Morris is ruled out, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown will likely soak up additional minutes.
Mar 27 - 9:57 AM

Marcus Morris came down on the foot of Troy Daniels and will not return to Monday's game with a sprained left ankle.

He missed his last game with a sprained right ankle, so he's going to be pretty iffy for the next few games with both ankles banged up. This should mean more good stuff for Jayson Tatum if Morris is going to miss time. Morris had 20 points, three boards and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes before leaving and is day-to-day.
Mar 26 - 11:57 PM

Marcus Morris (ankle) is good to go for Monday's game vs. the Suns and will be available off the bench.

Morris sat out of Sunday's game vs. the Kings, but the Celtics were probably just being cautious. He was on a tear before that DNP, scoring 21+ points in three out of his previous five games. He's safe to deploy this week, but the Celtics only play three times.
Mar 26 - 8:35 PM

Brad Stevens hinted that Marcus Morris (ankle) could be back in action as soon as Monday's game against the Suns.

It sounds like the Celtics are just being cautious with Morris and holding him out of the first game of this back-to-back set with a matchup against one of the worst teams out West. The Celtics won't host a shootaround tomorrow, so Morris will likely be a game-time call.
Mar 25 - 5:02 PM

Marcus Morris (right ankle sprain) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Kings.

Morris sprained his ankle on Friday, but was able to play through it, so maybe his absence from tonight's game against the 24-49 Kings is more precautionary than anything else with it being the first game of a back-to-back set. Jaylen Brown (concussion) is probable to play, so he'll be soaking up most of Morris' minutes and should be operating with a hefty usage rate with Kyrie Irving (knee) out.
Mar 25 - 3:04 PM

Marcus Morris (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Kings.

Morris rolled his ankle on Friday vs. Portland, but he was able to remain in the game after getting it re-taped. We'll hopefully have an update after their morning shootaround, but Morris is probably closer to probable unless his ankle swelled up on him. Morris has scored 21+ points in three out of his last five games and has stepped up in a big way for the injury-depleted Celtics. If he can't go, the good news is that Boston is expected to get Jaylen Brown (concussion) back today.

Marcus Morris ended up with 30 points across 35 minutes in Friday's 105-100 win at Portland.

Morris rolled his right ankle during the game, had it re-taped and was able to finish up. He obviously wasn't affected by the ailment, finishing an impressive 9-of-13 from the field, including 5-of-6 from behind the 3-point arc, while adding 7-of-7 from the free-throw line. He didn't really contribute much else across the board, but he also turned it over just one time.
Mar 24 - 12:56 AM

Marcus Morris hit a contested 3-pointer with 1.2 seconds on the clock to win Tuesday's game against the Thunder, finishing with 21 points, four boards, a steal and three 3-pointers on 8-of-13 shooting in 30 minutes.

Morris' shot was beyond clutch and he's rolling, averaging 17.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.0 3-pointers over his last five games. The Celtics were helped in the 100-99 win by Carmelo Anthony missing a pair of free throws that allowed Morris to hit the game-winner, and he should be in all fantasy lineups until further notice.
