Marcus Morris News

Marcus Morris    F  Celtics

 

 

Marcus Morris scored 13 points off the bench with 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Clippers on Wednesday. It's his second double-double of the season with those 11 boards coming as a season-high. Encouraging game aside, Morris' body of work indicates he needs serious volume to have fantasy value, and he's not going to get it on this deep team. He only has 14th-round value per game this year, so most owners can do better.

Marcus Morris will move to the bench against the Clippers on Wednesday. He was productive as a scorer in a start on Sunday with 17 points, but the Celtics will go with a bigger lineup against DeAndre Jordan. Morris doesn't do enough in the non-scoring areas to be added in most formats.

Marcus Morris will start on Sunday vs. Cleveland, pushing Aron Baynes to the bench. Coach Brad Stevens isn't afraid to mix up his lineups based on the matchups, so this is nothing new. He averages 25.2 minutes as a starter compared to 24.2 minutes as a reserve, so this doesn't move the needle much.

Marcus Morris returned from his hip injury on Tuesday and hit 4-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 12 points, two rebounds and one assist in a 111-91 loss to the Raptors. Greg Monroe still hasn't signed with the Celtics, which is good news for Morris, but once Monroe's on board, it's hard to envision Morris holding much value, if any.

Marcus Morris (hip) is expected to play Tuesday in Toronto. Morris sat out the past two games, but it looks like he'll be back out there tonight. That said, Morris' value is trending in the wrong direction with the signing of Greg Monroe, so he's not worth owning in most leagues.

Coach Brad Stevens said Marcus Morris (hip) will participate in shootaround and "the hope is" that he'll be available to play Tuesday vs. Toronto. Morris has missed each of Boston's last two games. More importantly, the Celtics signed free agent Greg Monroe over the weekend, further crowding the Bonton frontcourt. Even when fully healthy, Morris will have a tough time securing enough minutes on a consistent basis to make a significant fantasy impact.

Marcus Morris (hip) made the trip to Toronto for Tuesday's game. The hip issue has forced Morris to spend the past two games on the sidelines, but him traveling to Toronto is an encouraging sign regarding his status for Tuesday. We should get another update after tomorrow's shootaround, but with Greg Monroe likely to make his debut on Tuesday, Morris could struggle to find meaningful minutes in the rotation.

Marcus Morris (bruised left hip) is listed as out for Sunday's game vs. Portland. This will be his second straight game on the shelf, but he remains day-to-day. The Celtics have another weapon to use in Greg Monroe and we know coach Brad Stevens loves to play the matchup game, so Morris could see a dip in minutes going forward.

Morris (hip) will remain out for Sunday's game against Portland, Blazers digital reporter Casey Holdahl reports. Morris is battling a bruised left hip, which kept him out of Friday's win over the Hawks. The Celtics will play it safe Sunday, keeping Morris out for a second straight game, and he'll be joined in street clothes by fellow-starter Kyrie Irving.

Morris (hip) is listed as out in the Celtics' official game notes for Friday's game against the Hawks. Morris left Wednesday's game agains the Knicks with a bruised left hip after scoring a season-high 20 points in just 19 minutes. It's unclear exactly how severe the injury is, but Morris' absence Friday could just be precautionary given that Boston is going up against the lowly Hawks. In Morris' absence, Semi Ojeleye will likely see the biggest boost in minutes off the bench for the Celtics.
