Darius Morris (flu) did not practice on Friday.
We're going to be considering Morris questionable for Game 1 on Sunday, but he's a negligible part of the Nets' rotation, so there aren't any fantasy implications if he's unavailable. Apr 17 - 1:16 PM

Date:

Darius Morris played 19 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday with 10 points, two rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers during a 98-93 loss.

The Nets want to limit Jarrett Jack's minutes and that could lead to Morris playing in the high teens. With Deron Williams out indefinitely, Morris could have some low-end value in deep leagues.
Jan 10 - 10:26 PM

Darius Morris could step into the rotation for Friday's game against the 76ers.

Coach Lionel Hollins said that he didn't want to overwork current starter Jarrett Jack with Deron Williams (ribs) sidelined, so Morris will have a chance to step into the rotation Friday. However, with career averages of 3.5 points and not much else, there's not much reason to get excited about Morris. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 9 - 6:04 PM

The Nets have signed G Darius Morris.

Morris boasts career-averages of 3.7 points, 1.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game, and he'll struggle to find minutes playing behind Deron Williams and Jarret Jack. Leave him on the wire.

Blazers waive G Diante Garrett and G Darius Morris.

Neither had much of a chance to make the team. Garrett and Morris are likely headed to the D-League.

Darius Morris has signed a non-guaranteed contract to join the Portland Trailblazers training camp.

Morris was reportedly close to signing with Crvena Zvezda of the Euroleague, but will now get a shot to earn a spot with the Blazers. He has been bouncing around the NBA on various 10 day contracts and stints with the D-League and will likely take his talents overseas if he cannot latch on to an NBA team.

Crvena Zvezda of the Euroleague is reportedly in talks to sign Darius Morris.

The deal is reportedly close to happening and would be for $450,000 next season. The 23-year-old has played with the Lakers, Clippers, 76ers, and Grizzlies over three NBA seasons and would hope to use his time in Serbia as a springboard towards a return to the NBA.

Darius Morris has been acquired by the Rio Grande Valley of the D-League.

Morris had been playing with the Memphis Grizzlies as recently as February, but failed to hook on with the team for a second 10-day contract once Mike Conley returned to action. Morris wasn't much of a fantasy option when he was with the Grizzlies, so it goes without saying that his fantasy value is non-existent outside of D-League fantasy leagues.

Grizzlies sign PG Darius Morris.

Morris will be playing on a 10-day contract, providing some depth at PG behind Nick Calathes until Mike Conley (ankle) is ready to return. He's not worth fantasy owners' attention outside of the deepest leagues.

Darius Morris will be signed to a second 10-day deal on Thursday.

He signed his first 10-day deal on the first day NBA teams can offer that type of deal and he'll get another look. Morris played just six minutes on Wednesday, so he might not last beyond the second 10-day. NBA teams would need to offer a guaranteed deal after two 10-day contracts.

The Clippers sign G Darius Morris.

Teams can sign players to 10-day deals starting today and LA didn't waste any time. The Clippers have been using Darren Collison and Jamal Crawford at point guard with nobody behind them, so Morris will provide some emergency depth.

The Grizzlies will work out free agent Gs Darius Morris, Reggie Williams, Seth Curry and Kendall Marshall this week.

A few more D-League players may also join the workouts. Memphis is eager to add guards after Tony Allen's hip injury shifted Jerryd Bayless to the SG spot and exposed their lack of depth. No matter which player or players are signed, they're doubtful to have fantasy value.

Darius Morris was waived by the Sixers on Wednesday.

He was nice Tony Wroten insurance and got some run in the last five games, averaging 9.4 points, 2.6 assists and 1.4 triples in 18 minutes over that span. Wroten has been very impressive and this move basically secures his spot in the rotation for Philly.

Darius Morris played 11 minutes off the bench on Monday, scoring three points with two rebounds and one assist.

Morris hit 1-of-5 shots and if you were in a very deep league speculating that he might join the party, this should be a reminder that his role is still too tenuous to count on.
Mon, Nov 18, 2013 11:38:00 PM

Darius Morris hit 6-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers off the Sixers bench for a season-high 20 points in 27 minutes of Saturday's ugly loss.

Believe it or not, that's not even a career high for Morris, who has quietly scored in double digits for the Sixers in three of their last five games, hitting nine 3-pointers in that stretch. He's seeing more run with Michael Carter-Williams out of action, but still isn't fantasy-worthy yet.
