Marcus Morris scored 22 points against the Kings during Wednesday's 104-99 win with six boards, two steals and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.
He's played well against the Kings this season with a 13.0 points per game average in his previous three. Morris didn't quite have the year his brother Markieff had, but he made some nice strides as an offensive weapon. He'll be on the radar in deeper leagues depending on how the Suns handle their business in the offseason. Apr 17 - 1:29 AM

Date:

Marcus Morris played just 10 minutes against the Celtics on Friday with three points, one rebound and one steal.

While he did get the start on Wednesday, Morris had scored in double figures for six games prior to that night. In that seven-game span, he averaged 13.7 points, 4.3 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.9 triples on 55.4 percent from the field. His twin bro is a better own and Eric Bledsoe returning does hurt Marcus’ value, so he’s only on the radar in deep leagues after this dud.
Mar 15 - 12:05 AM

Marcus Morris started for P.J. Tucker (suspension) on Wednesday against the Cavs, scoring 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting (including three treys) with three rebounds and two steals in 38 minutes.

Morris got the extra minutes and touches that one would expect with Tucker out, and he's just a deep league guy at best these days. Tucker's suspension was just for one game.
Mar 13 - 1:28 AM

Marcus Morris will start at small forward against the Cavs on Wednesday for the suspended P.J. Tucker.

Tucker was suspended for his blow to Blake Griffin on Monday and the Suns will have to go without their best wing defender tonight. Morris has essentially played starters minutes over his previous three, averaging 29.4 minutes per game with 12.3 points, 3.0 boards, 2.7 assists and 1.7 triples on 53.8 percent from the field. Now that Eric Bledsoe is back, Gerald Green should also see a nice chunk of minutes at small forward tonight.
Mar 12 - 2:20 PM

Marcus Morris hit 5-of-7 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, three rebounds and two assists in Thursday's win over the Thunder.

Marcus is following his brother's (Markieff) footsteps and has become a hot pick up in fantasy, scoring at least 12 points in four straight games. He's averaging 13.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.8 3-pointers over his last five games, making him worth a look in all fantasy leagues. And Markieff, for what it's worth, has become a must-own, must-start player for the Suns.
Mar 7 - 12:37 AM

Marcus Morris hit 4-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 11 points, two rebounds and one assist on Wednesday.

He failed to score in eight minutes last Tuesday, but has scored in double figures in four of his last five games. He's worth a look, but his brother, Markieff, looks like a safer add. However, with Gerald Green, P.J. Tucker and Goran Dragic doing the heavy lifting for the Suns, and Channing Frye starting at power forward, neither of the Morris brothers are exactly must-own, must-start material right now.
Feb 20 - 12:56 AM

Marcus Morris scored 16 points in just 21 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday, adding six boards, two assists and one 3-pointer on 7-of-12 from the field.

It was his second consecutive game with 16 points, but his minutes took a hit tonight. Coach Jeff Hornacek really likes to give P.J. Tucker big minutes against the upper-echelon wings, so the dip in playing time is not a surprise. His minutes are too inconsistent to be considered as a standard-league asset.
Jan 30 - 9:50 PM

Marcus Morris came off the bench and hit 5-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, four rebounds, four assists and a steal in 29 minutes.

Morris gets hot occasionally, but there is too much time between good games for him to be owned in most leagues. He had scored seven or fewer points in his previous four games, but this could be a signal that he's about to heat up. Even if it happens, as long as he's not starting over P.J. Tucker, Morris will be too inconsistent to own. And speaking of Tucker, he missed his only shot tonight and gave way to a hot Morris, which explains his big line.
Jan 30 - 12:06 AM

Marcus Morris scored just two points on 1-of-5 shooting with three rebounds and three steals in 18 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

Morris has really been slumping lately and given his low upside he can certainly be dropped in 12-team standard leagues, and in 14-team leagues owners should be willing to move on for any mid-level free agent. Just don't be surprised if he becomes a low-end asset in standard leagues later on in the year.
Jan 16 - 1:45 AM

Marcus Morris scored 12 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 4-of-9 shots (including a three) with two rebounds in 24 minutes.

While it would have seemed that Eric Bledsoe's injury would open things up for the Morris twins, the ascension of Leandro Barbosa has essentially kept them in the same place they've always been. Both have late-round value on the year but, especially in Marcus' case, they're best suited for deeper formats.
Jan 13 - 11:27 PM

Marcus Morris came off the bench to hit 7-of-15 shots and three 3-pointers on his way to 18 points, three rebounds, two steals and a block in 25 minutes on Saturday.

Twin brother Markieff had just four points and eight boards on 2-of-7 shooting, while Channing Frye had eight points and 11 boards. If Marcus could be consistent he might be fun to own, but he's scored 18, 7, 19, 8, 14, 5, 11, 7 and 22 points in each of his last nine games. If you can start him every other game, it might work out.

Marcus Morris scored 19 points off the bench against the Lakers on Monday during an easy 117-90 win, adding four boards, three assists and five 3-pointers on 6-of-9 shooting.

Apparently, he likes playing the Lakers. In Marcus' two games against them, he's averaged 20.5 points, 5.0 boards, 0.5 blocks and 3.5 triples in 26.0 minutes. Morris has alternated games with single- and double-figure outings over his last seven games, so he needs to establish some consistency to be a trustworthy player in most leagues. Although, it's not a bad idea to pick him up based on his 11 triples over his last three games.

Marcus Morris cooled off against the Kings on Friday with seven points, two boards, one steal and one block in 20 minutes.

He torched the Lakers for 22 points on Tuesday, but that line was a little fluky. Coach Jeff Hornacek has used Marcus at both forward spots, but it's hard to like him as a pick pin fantasy unless he's playing him over 26 minutes per game on a nightly basis. Markieff Morris is a better fantasy asset despite his quiet Friday of nine points, six boards, two assists, one steal and one turnover.
Sat, Dec 14, 2013 02:20:00 AM

Marcus Morris made the most of his 27 minutes on Tuesday, hitting 10-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 22 points, four rebounds and a block.

Markieff Morris played two more minutes and hit 6-of-10 shots for 15 points, seven rebounds, three assists and a block. Both Morris twins outplayed Miles Plumlee and got a lot more minutes, but there's no way to tell if that will become a trend in the future. Both Morris boys are playing well enough to be added in any league, while both are also going to have bouts with inconsistency going forward. But if you're interested in adding rebounds, Markieff is probably the Morris brother you'll want to look at.
Wed, Dec 11, 2013 01:50:00 AM

Marcus Morris scored 18 points with six boards, two assists, one block, two steals and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

He saw 10 minutes of action in the fourth quarter of a game that turned out to be a blowout, but that has nothing to do with this outburst since all of his points came while the game was somewhat close. With Gerald Green moving to the bench, it's going to be difficult for Morris to see consistent minutes. He's only worth a look in deeper leagues since he's struggled at power forward the past couple seasons.
