Markieff Morris scored seven points with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

The NBA could be looking at an incident from the first half with Morris and OG Anunoby getting into it. Morris did have a mild shove to referee Ken Maurer, so it's possible he can be suspended. For now, it doesn't sound like he will be, but obviously the NBA cares a lot about their player-ref relationships.
Apr 20 - 10:54 PM

Markieff Morris scored 22 points with 11 rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

He did hurt his left ankle late in the fourth quarter and limped to the bench, but he returned for the final two minutes. Morris' six dimes were a playoff career high and was a big part of keeping the Wizards in it, especially with how he had to play center early in the first quarter. For now, expect him to be ready for Game 2.
Apr 14 - 8:08 PM

Markieff Morris was ejected in the first quarter of Friday's game vs. the Hawks with a pair of technical fouls.

He had a lot of words for the officials and will be looking at a fine from the league office. Mike Scott should pick up some run and we'll likely see Washington roll with more small-ball lineups.
Apr 6 - 7:28 PM

Markieff Morris (illness) had eight points on 4-of-7 shooting, five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 31 minutes on Sunday.

The Wizards clinched a playoff spot on Saturday but remain in the thick of a competitive multi-team race for seeding, so there's incentive to play key guys until the bitter end. That's great news if you're counting on guys like Morris, Marcin Gortat and Otto Porter in roto leagues.
Apr 1 - 6:04 PM

Markieff Morris (illness) will play vs. the Bulls on Sunday.

Morris exited Saturday's game with flu-like symptoms, but he's going to suit up for this Easter Day matinee. It should be safe to keep him locked into active lineups.
Apr 1 - 2:09 PM

Markieff Morris (illness) will not return against the Hornets on Saturday.

It's flu-like symptoms for Morris. He went to the locker room about 10 minutes ago and it was unclear why, but now we know. With him out, that means plenty of Mike Scott while Kelly Oubre also benefits a lot here. Morris should be considered questionable for Sunday.
Mar 31 - 4:01 PM

Markieff Morris played just 17 minutes, but hit 7-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, two rebounds, one assist and a steal to lead the Wizards to a 116-106 win over the Spurs.

He picked up four fouls and the box score for both teams was pretty weird tonight, and Morris has played very well in three straight games. The low minutes were a fluke, so look for them to be back in the 30s for Thursday's game against the Pistons. If everything goes Washington's way that night, they can clinch a playoff berth on Thursday.
Mar 27 - 9:58 PM

The Wizards' two-game win streak ended on Wednesday, with Markieff Morris contributing just five points on 2-of-6 shooting, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 25 minutes.

The Wizards still haven't won at San Antonio since 1999 and the Spurs' defense gets credit for Morris' lousy night. After really struggling defensively in February, the Spurs have again tightened the screws during their five-game win streak. Morris was hot in his past three games and should fare better this weekend vs. the visiting Nuggets (Friday) and Knicks (Sunday).
Mar 22 - 12:22 AM

Markieff Morris hit 10-of-15 shots, 3-of-5 3-pointers and 4-of-4 free throws for a season-high 27 points, four rebounds and two assists in Tuesday's tough loss to the Timberwolves.

This was quite a bit better than Saturday's disaster when he hit just 2-of-4 shots and scored four points in 19 minutes of action. But if you throw that dud out the window, Kieff has scored in double digits in the rest of his previous seven games and has been playing very well. Make sure he's in your lineup.
Mar 13 - 9:27 PM

Markieff Morris scored four points with four rebounds and four assists in a blowout loss to the Heat on Saturday.

The whole Wizards team was flat, so just chalk this up to a road second game of a back-to-back set for Morris -- shoutout to the SEGABABA crew. Morris has played very well lately, so his fantasy owners should just ignore this one. John Wall coming back later this month could hurt him, though.
Mar 10 - 9:48 PM

Markieff Morris double-doubled vs. the Heat on Tuesday with 16 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two triples.

Morris logged 42 minutes in the overtime win and played some small-ball center as well, hitting 6-of-12 shots and 2-of-3 free throws. He's starting to get into a rhythm with at least 12 points in each of his last five games, averaging 14.6 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.8 blocks, 0.6 steals and 1.8 triples in that span. He's one of those guys that is hard to get excited about on your roster but is too good to be on the wire. He'll get a matchup vs. the Pelicans on Friday.
Mar 6 - 11:07 PM

Markieff Morris finished with 12 points and seven rebounds across 28 minutes in a loss to Indiana on Sunday.

Morris was an efficient 5-of-7 from the field, and 2-of-3 from behind the arc, but he was a dismal minus-21 which was a game worst. He'll look for better results at the defensive end of the floor in Tuesday's contest against Miami, the first contest in a three-game week for the Wizards.
Mar 4 - 10:15 PM

Markieff Morris ended up with 13 points, eight assists and six rebounds over 27 minutes in Friday's 122-105 loss against the Hornets.

Morris was under the weather before the All-Star break, but his energy level appears to be back after the time to rest. He is averaging 11.0 PPG, 7.0 RPG, 5.5 APG and 1.0 SPG across the past two out of the break, all at or slightly above his seasonal averages. He remains a solid, yet unspectacular fantasy option across most formats.
Feb 23 - 10:27 PM

Markieff Morris (illness) returned to action on Wednesday with 13 points, seven rebounds and three assists in a huge comeback vs. the Knicks.

Morris logged 25 minutes after sitting out Saturday's game with the illness. He rarely jumps off the stat sheet but has quietly regained mid-round roto value over the past month, averaging 12.4 points (47.1% FGs, 84.6% FTs), 1.1 triples, 6.3 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.5 blocks. You could do far worse in most leagues.
