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.
Feb 14 - 11:02 PM

Markieff Morris (illness) will play Wednesday against the Knicks.

He did not play on Saturday and was also held out of practice on Monday. Morris was also on the injury report last week for a hand injury, so hopefully the time off got him right there. His return will take minutes away from Mike Scott while Kelly Oubre should still play a bunch. Morris should be owned in standard leagues.
Feb 14 - 6:10 PM

Markieff Morris (illness) is expected to play Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

Morris was unable to practice on Monday, after sitting out Saturday's game. However, it appears he is on track to return to action on Wednesday. Check back prior to tip for confirmation. Kelly Oubre will likely get bumped back to the bench.
Feb 14 - 1:36 PM

Markieff Morris (illness) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

Morris sat out Saturday's game and was unable to practice on Monday. Kelly Oubre would be the primary beneficiary if Morris is ruled out on Wednesday. Oubre had 11 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one block and three triples when Morris sat on Saturday.
Feb 14 - 11:39 AM

Markieff Morris (illness) did not practice on Monday.

He's had the flu for a few days now, but he still has over 48 hours to recover in time for Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks. If Morris can't go, Kelly Oubre will be the primary beneficiary and we should see more of Mike Scott. Oubre had 11 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one block and three triples when Morris sat on Saturday, while Scott had 14 points, five rebounds, one assist and two treys.
Feb 12 - 1:00 PM

Markieff Morris (illness) will not play against the Bulls on Saturday.

He was on the injury report for a hand injury, but the flu will keep him out for this game. Morris was starting to play really well and part of the reason could be because of no John Wall to take shots. Kelly Oubre will start and should have a big chance to post a nice stat line.
Feb 10 - 6:36 PM

Markieff Morris (swollen left hand) did not practice with the team on Friday.

Morris injured his hand on Tuesday during a tussle with Joel Embiid in the games vs. the Sixers. Morris was able to play Thursday, but wore a wrap around his left thumb and wrist in that contest. We'll consider Morris questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls. Mike Scott and Jason Smith would see an uptick in minutes if Morris is unable to play.
Feb 9 - 12:23 PM

Markieff Morris had nine points, five rebounds and five assists in a loss vs. Boston on Thursday, adding one steal and one block in 29 minutes.

Morris made 3-of-6 field goals and 2-of-2 free throws, with one of his makes coming from downtown. He sprained his left hand in a tussle with Joel Embiid during Tuesday's game and was wearing a brace earlier on Thursday, but it didn't impact his play tonight. Fantasy owners can deploy him as usual.
Feb 8 - 11:31 PM

Markieff Morris is starting against the Celtics on Thursday.

He sprained his hand on Tuesday, but there was never much of a concern. Morris should be seeing decent run as the Wizards sprain John Wall's usage around.
Feb 8 - 7:30 PM

Markieff Morris sprained his left hand during Tuesday's game.

Kieff was wearing a brace and we'll consider him questionable to play vs. the Celtics on Thursday, but there are no indications he'll sit out. He's playing well lately and owners should simply double-check his availability as tip-off approaches.
