Markieff Morris    F  Suns

 

 

Markieff Morris picked up two quick fouls on Wednesday, finishing a 109-101 win vs. the Hawks with three points, three rebounds, two assists and two blocks in just 20 minutes. Morris had a minor issue with his shoes early, but the fouls were his real undoing tonight. He has a brewing feud with Paul Millsap, who said the Wizards were "playing MMA" during Game 1, and the refs were definitely quicker to call fouls tonight. Morris gave no indication that he'll temper his physical style, saying, "I’m just going headfirst every play ... if we’re gonna jostle the whole series then that’s what it’s going to be." Game on.

Markieff Morris (ankle) shined in his playoff debut on Sunday, scoring 21 points on 8-of-19 shooting to go with seven boards, two assists, one steal, four blocks and two turnovers in 38 minutes. Morris had a nice two-man game going with Wall, and he played some excellent defense, on one possession sending away back-to-back shots (video below). Morris also said prior to the game to not refer to him as a stretch-four, because stretch-fours are "soft," but added you could call Millsap a stretch-four. The two were spotted jawing at each other throughout the contest, and there will clearly be no love lost between these two when all is said and done. Kieff is in for a big series.

Markieff Morris (ankle, rest) is not on the injury report for Game 1 vs. the Hawks on Sunday. Morris sat out of a couple games in April to rest up a tweaked ankle, and clearly it worked because he scored 20 and 21 points in his previous two outings. He will have his hands full with Paul Millsap, but Morris had a lot of success against the Hawks this season with averages of 17.0 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 2.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.3 3-pointers.

Markieff Morris (ankle) returned from a one-game absence against the Heat on Saturday and scored 21 points in 30 minutes. He missed Thursday's game, but it was likely for precautionary reasons. The rest definitely seemed to rejuvenate Morris, as he shot 9-of-13 from the field and 3-of-4 from beyond the arc with five rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes. Morris has really cooled off since the break with averages of 11.1 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.6 triples, so he will be difficult to trust in the final two games of the season.

Markieff Morris (ankle) will start against the Heat on Saturday. He missed Thursday's game for what may have been lingering effects to an ankle sprain earlier this month. With Morris back, Marcin Gortat may have a tough time matching his big Thursday game while Jason Smith loses some value. Morris hasn't been great, but he should still be starting in most formats.
