Markieff Morris News

Markieff Morris (illness) returned from a two-game absence on Monday vs. the Celtics, scoring 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting. He didn't look limited and it's safe to say he's over his flu. Morris added four rebounds, one block and one triple in 31 minutes, and while he has slowed down significantly since the All-Star break, he's still a decent low-end option with three more games this week and four games next week. Hopefully he heats up soon.

Markieff Morris (illness) will return to the starting five for Monday's game against the Celtics, sending Jason Smith back to the bench. Morris will be returning from a two-game absence tonight, and there's been zero talk of a potential minutes limit, so his owners can feel free to get him active. Smith had a nice run in his previous two starts, but he'll likely return to being a non-factor with the second unit on Monday.

Markieff Morris (illness) is probable for Monday's game vs. the Celtics. Morris has been battling the flu and missed the previous two games, but he went through shootaround and it sounds like he's fully expected to return which will bump Jason Smith back to the bench. Morris has slowed down a bit since the All-Star break, but he's still worth owning in standard leagues with four games on the schedule this week and next week.

Markieff Morris (illness) is out against the Hornets on Saturday. He did travel, but he is going to miss both games of the back-to-back set. Morris should be well enough to play on Monday night against the Celtics. For tonight, Jason Smith will look to build off his stunning 17-point Friday. That is unlikely to happen again, but feel free to chase that line in a much worse matchup against Marvin Williams. Otto Porter, Bojan Bogdanovic and Ian Mahinmi may also slightly benefit.

Markieff Morris (illness) will not play against the Bulls on Friday and Jason Smith will start in his place. He has a sinus issue and this news came out of nowhere just a few minutes ago. With Morris out, Smith should see minutes close to 20, but you can bet the Wizards will use a lot of lineups with Otto Porter and Bojan Bogdanovic at the forward spots. Plus, Marcin Gortat's minutes are also safer because Morris has played a lot of five recently.
