Markieff Morris scored 16 points on 5-of-9 shooting with five rebounds, one assist, four steals and two turnovers in 33 minutes against the Nets on Monday.
He's clearly trending up again. Morris has played 33 or more minutes in four straight games and has scored in double digits in his last three. The only thing holding him back right now is his 3-point shot and turnover rate -- he hasn't hit a 3-pointer in four straight games and he's averaging 3.5 turnovers in that span. Dec 5 - 10:55 PM

Markieff Morris (ankle) scored 12 points with four rebounds, three assists and one block in 38 minutes vs. the Spurs on Friday.

He twisted his left ankle on Wednesday, but it's not the same ankle that bothered him earlier in the season. Considering he played 38 minutes, it's safe to assume that his injury is very minor. Morris shot 4-of-7 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line, but did turn the ball over four times. He's been a low-end asset in standard leagues so far, but he has room to grow.
Dec 3 - 2:05 AM

Markieff Morris (ankle) will start against the Spurs on Friday.

The Wizards made it clear he only has a "twisted" ankle and not a sprain, so Morris had a good shot to play tonight. He should get a good amount of run and is coming off a 37-minute, 19-point Wednesday. We'll see if he can keep LaMarcus Aldridge in check tonight.
Dec 2 - 7:38 PM

Markieff Morris (left ankle) received treatment on Thursday.

He's likely going to be listed as questionable on Friday due to his twisted ankle on Wednesday. Morris had a right ankle injury last month, but this one appears to be more minor than that one. If he's out on Friday against the Spurs, Jason Smith would get more run while Andrew Nicholson could get in the mix. We'll get an update at shootaround on Friday.
Dec 1 - 3:05 PM

Markieff Morris twisted his left ankle against the Thunder on Wednesday, finishing with 19 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes.

Morris had a right ankle injury earlier this month, so this is something different. The Wizards will re-evaluate Morris on Thursday and will see if he can play against the Spurs on Friday. If he's out, we could see more Otto Porter at the four, Jason Smith could play more and maybe Andrew Nicholson gets in the mix.
Dec 1 - 12:20 AM

Markieff Morris hit just 2-of-12 shots for eight points, five rebounds, four assists, a steal and six turnovers in 44 minutes of Monday's 101-95 overtime win over the Kings.

He was ejected in the third quarter of Saturday's game and really hasn't done much for the Wizards lately. He's averaging just 8.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 0.4 3-pointers on 37 percent shooting over his last five games. He'll get it turned around at some point, but he's been struggling for some time and might start showing up on waiver wires any day now. If you need a buy-low power forward, he's probably worth a look. Especially because the 44 minutes (yeah, it was overtime) were very encouraging.

Markieff Morris was ejected in the third quarter on Saturday.

Referee Ken Mauer gave him two technicals after Morris wouldn't stop talking. He didn't appear to make contact with the ref, so he shouldn't be suspended. Morris finished tonight's game with 12 points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes. He's worth owning in standard leagues. For tonight, Jason Smith replaced him and should get a few extra minutes.
Nov 26 - 8:33 PM

Markieff Morris (ankle) played 32 minutes against the Magic on Friday with 11 points, three rebounds, two assists, three steals and one block.

The Wizards having a few days off following their Monday game helped to get Morris back up to his normal playing time. Before his injury limited him in his previous three, Morris was turning the corner and flirting with mid-round value. He's a hold in standard leagues.
Nov 25 - 10:08 PM

Markieff Morris (foot) will play against the Magic on Friday.

He is good to go after missing some practice time on Tuesday. Morris did have his minutes monitored on Monday, logging just 26 minutes. His injury has caused him to have some quiet numbers in his last three, averaging 6.4 points, 4.3 boards and 1.0 steals. Expect him to play around 30 minutes on Friday and he should remain owned in standard leagues.
Nov 24 - 5:50 PM

Markieff Morris (sore foot) did not practice on Tuesday.

Morris was limited to 26 minutes during Monday's matchup with the Suns, but with the Wizards off until Friday, he has plenty of time to get his sore foot some rest. For now, we'll consider him on the probable side of the questionable-tag for Friday night, and owners can expect to get more than a few updates leading up to Friday's tip.
Nov 22 - 2:32 PM

Markieff Morris came into Monday's game with an ankle injury and was under the watchful eye of coach Scott Brooks, but managed to play 26 minutes and hit 2-of-8 shots for five points, five rebounds and two steal in a win over the Suns.

Morris really wanted to play against his former team, but really didn't do much. The fact he played tonight was a good sign that his injury isn't serious, but owners will want to watch for news on Morris on Tuesday.
Nov 21 - 10:36 PM

Scott Brooks said that he'll be monitoring Markieff Morris' (ankle) minutes during Monday's game against the Suns.

Morris will be in the starting lineup for tonight's revenge game, but the monitoring of his minutes does detract slightly from his DFS appeal. Season-long owners can feel free to get him active.
Nov 21 - 5:48 PM

Markieff Morris (ankle) will play on Monday vs. the Suns.

He said on Sunday that he was playing, but now we have confirmation. He's dealing with some soreness, but he's not going to miss out on the opportunity to get some revenge against his former team. This should be fun.
Nov 21 - 12:28 PM

Wizards coach Scott Brooks said on Sunday that he's not sure if Markieff Morris (ankle) will play on Monday vs. the Suns.

"I don't know what his status will be tomorrow," Brooks said. "He did say he's feeling a little better, but he's sore." Morris sat out of practice, but contradicted his head coach by confidently saying that he would play. He's going to face his former team Monday, so we'd be a little surprised if he didn't give it a go. Hopefully we'll get an update after the morning shootaround.
Nov 21 - 9:45 AM

Markieff Morris (right ankle) was withheld from competing during Sunday's practice, but he said he'll be "ready" for tomorrow's game against the Suns.

Morris was forced out of Saturday's game with the ankle injury, but X-rays came back negative, and it sounds like he's pretty determined to suit up for his revenge game on Monday night. Owners can expect to get another update following Monday morning's shootaround.
