Markieff Morris said his ejection during Wednesday's win over the Hornets stemmed from his emotions getting the best of him.
Of his ejection that occurred in the second half after two technical fouls that were two minutes and 33 seconds apart, Morris said, "I let my emotions get the best of me, which wasn't right." Morris shouldn't face suspension for his ejection and was still able to score 13 points with eight rebounds and one 3-pointer, so there will be better days to come for his fantasy owners.

Markieff Morris was ejected for two technical fouls against the Hornets on Wednesday.

He started slow, but had it going as he was ejected for arguing with a ref. Morris finished with 13 points, eight rebounds and one 3-pointer on 6-of-10 from the field. He won't be suspended and hopefully he keeps his temper in check against the Knicks on Saturday.
Dec 17 - 8:50 PM

Markieff Morris made 9-of-13 from the field for 25 points with seven rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers and six turnovers against the Bucks on Monday.

He had an awful game against the Thunder due to foul trouble and bounced back nicely in 37 minutes. Morris has seen his fouls go up recently, but it's still not enough to be alarmed. He's posting top-30 total value on the season and there's no reason to think he won't be in that neighborhood at season's end.
Dec 16 - 1:17 AM

Markieff Morris scored just four points in Sunday's loss to the Thunder, adding one rebound in 10 minutes.

It was by far his worst game of the season, and the low minutes occurred due to the fact that he had five fouls in 10 minutes. Morris' owners should give him a break after this dud, as he has managed to post early-round value in what has been his breakout season. Expect him to bounce back against the Bucks on Monday.
Dec 14 - 10:04 PM

Markieff Morris scored 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting (including three treys) with seven rebounds, two steals and one block in Monday's overtime loss.

Morris has checked in with late early-round value on the season and should hang around that ballpark all year.
Dec 9 - 2:20 AM

Markieff Morris made just 2-of-14 from the field for four points on Saturday to go with seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in 31 minutes.

He fouled out for the second time this season in what was easily his worst game of the year. Morris was coming in hot off a 22-10 game on Friday, but several of his shots were not even close. There's no reason to be worried here and he was posting top-30 value before this stinker.
Dec 7 - 12:03 AM

Markieff Morris dominated against the Mavericks during a 118-106 win on Friday with 22 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He's been a top-30 player in the past two weeks and has been a nine-category player despite his inability to knock down treys this season. Morris has thrived off the dribble and has been the first option on several plays this season, so his hot start is no fluke. Keep him active in your lineup all year and enjoy the ride. He's also only missed one game in the last two-plus seasons, so that's just a bonus.
Dec 6 - 2:23 AM

Markieff Morris nearly triple-doubled in a loss to the Magic on Sunday finishing with 18 points, 10 boards, seven assists and one block in 39 minutes.

Easily the best player on the court Sunday, Morris has shown why he has emerged as a fantasy stud this season. He did fail to score a 3-pointer on four attempts, but that is nothing to be concerned about. The best thing about this line is that he continues to play big minutes and owners have to be thrilled with his rapid development.
Nov 30 - 11:03 PM

Markieff Morris was all over the court against the Nuggets on Wednesday, posting a monster line of 15 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, four blocks and three steals in 37 minutes.

He made the Manimal look like a pedestrian tonight and had a highlight-reel block in transition. Morris is filling it up like few others in his last five, averaging 14.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.4 blocks, 1.8 steals and 0.2 treys on 50.8 percent from the field and 92.3 percent from the line. He's a fantasy star and he's going to do this all year.
Nov 27 - 3:03 AM

Markieff Morris had an easy 18 points against the Sixers on Friday with four rebounds and one 3-pointer.

He scored a very quick seven points and only needed 23 minutes to do his damage. Morris is starting to roll again and he's been a third-round player so far this season. There's no reason to think he can't keep up this pace.
Nov 21 - 9:50 PM

Markieff Morris, who had a career-high 30 points on Monday, hit 5-of-8 shots for just 10 points on Wednesday, but added four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in a tough win over the Pistons.

His offense has been a problem of late and he's scored 12 or fewer points in four of his last five games. And even with Monday's 30-point stunner, he's averaging just 13.2 points and 5.6 rebounds over that stretch. However, the talent and opportunity are there, and we're guessing Morris has more big scoring nights in his near future. The good news is that he has totaled 11 steals, four blocks and four 3-pointers in those five games. Morris also had the quote of the night, ripping Kentavious Caldwell-Pope for his late miss that secured the Suns win. "KCP got it and you know he doesn't have any heart so we knew he was going to miss it," Morris said after the game.
Nov 20 - 12:53 AM

Markieff Morris busted out of his slump with a career-high 30 points against the Celtics on Monday, adding seven rebounds, five assists, four steals and one 3-pointer.

He shot 14-of-21 from the field and gave the Celtics a headache on defense. Morris didn't shoot above 39 percent in any of his previous three games, but he was still at a respectable 46.3 percent on the season even before this explosion. He has a legitimate chance to be a top-25 player in fantasy leagues.
Nov 17 - 11:19 PM

Markieff Morris made just 2-of-10 from the field for five points with six rebounds and one block in 24 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

This will probably be his low point on the season with his third game in single-digit scoring over his last four. Morris was putting up top-20 value before this recent cold spell, so this is a prime opportunity to see if his fantasy owner doesn't believe in the preseason hype. He should be a top-40 guy this season.
Nov 16 - 3:03 AM

Markieff Morris scored in the single digits for the second consecutive game on Wednesday with nine points, five rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

Everyone always gets caught up with scoring in fantasy hoops, but Markieff had a decent game tonight. This is probably one of the better buy-low chances to get him and he should have a big game against the Hornets on Friday.
Nov 13 - 1:23 AM

Jeff Hornacek said Markieff Morris has proven to be a starting power forward in the NBA.

Morris, who is second in minutes played on the Suns to Goran Dragic, is living up to the challenges the Suns presented him. "We've asked him at the beginning of last year, that's your next step is to be consistent and he has been consistently good. So far, he's proved he is a starting power forward in this league," Hornacek said. Morris is averaging 19.6 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.8 3-pointers on 50.7% shooting.
