Markieff Morris    F  Wizards

 

 

Morris will not play Wednesday against the Grizzlies. This is the first we've heard of the issue, and at this point it's unclear if Morris is in any danger of missing multiple games. Regardless, he apparently sustained the injury sometime during Tuesday's loss to Brooklyn, in which he finished with six points in just 19 minutes. Mike Scott will get the start in Morris' place Wednesday.

Markieff Morris (hip) is out and Mike Scott will start against the Grizzlies on Wednesday. It's another Morris late scratch and he apparently tightened up after warmups. Both Morris brothers have struggled to stay on the court, but Markieff doesn't sound like he'll be out for long. Scott has played well recently and he could get some extended minutes while Kelly Oubre could also be asked to step up.

Markieff Morris    F  Wizards

 

 

Markieff Morris played just 16 minutes with two points, one rebound, two assists and three turnovers against the Clippers on Saturday. A red-hot Mike Scott closed this game out over Markieff. While Morris is starting to play a little better these days, it's possible Kelly Oubre or Mike Scott get hot and take his minutes late in games. Still, Morris is healthy and he we've seen him flourish at times, so he could be had at a steep discount. He's not a slam-dunk own in very shallow leagues, though.

Markieff Morris    F  Wizards

 

 

Morris totaled 21 points (8-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block across 31 minutes in Thursday's 109-99 victory over Phoenix. Morris had arguably his best outing of the season, chipping in across the board. He has been disappointing since returning from an early-season injury, but with John Wall (knee) likely out for another few games, he should be able to put up some nice numbers. This performance did come against an understrength Suns team, so we will need to see him do it again before we are believing in him.

Markieff Morris hit 8-of-12 shots and two 3-pointers for 21 points, six rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block in 32 minutes of Thursday's win over the Suns. Morris got some revenge on his former team and might finally be on the verge of playing well for his fantasy owners, although neither the minutes nor points were season highs. However, this was probably his best game of the season, and even though it came against the Suns, he should be owned in most leagues.

Markieff Morris    F  Wizards

 

 

Markieff Morris hit just 2-of-10 shots (both 3-pointers) and finished with eight points, but also had four rebounds, a steal and three blocks in Tuesday's win over the Blazers. He's still not doing it consistently and has fizzled a bit after Friday's 23 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers, but he can't be this bad forever. If he's floating around on your waiver wire and you have someone to drop, think about grabbing him before he puts it all together.

Markieff Morris    F  Wizards

 

 

Morris tallied 11 points (4-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound and two blocks across 22 minutes in Monday's 116-69 loss to the Jazz. Morris' scoring total -- albeit modest -- was good enough to rank second on the team behind Otto Porter in the blowout defeat. The 28-year-old was coming off a season-high 23 points on Friday, but his contributions Monday were much more along the lines of his season figures. Morris is shooting a respectable 44.5 percent, but both his shot attempts (9.1) and scoring average (10.0) are his lowest since the 2012-13 season in Phoenix.

Markieff Morris scored 23 points with seven rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Pistons on Friday. Before the game, coach Scott Brooks said he sat down with Morris for a 1-on-1 film session. Well, it apparently worked. Morris still hasn't looked very explosive and again he was struggling before this one, but maybe he can parlay this one with another good game on Monday. He should be owned in standard leagues.

Markieff Morris    F  Wizards

 

 

Morris scored 23 points (10-16 FG, 2-3 3PT, 1-1 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, three assists, and two blocks over 28 minutes in Friday's 109-91 win over Detroit. Since returning from sports hernia surgery, Morris has been an inconsistent scorer. The center had scored less than 10 points in 8-of-14 games prior to Friday. Against Detroit, Morris exploded for a season-high 23 points while shooting a very efficient 10-of-16 from the floor. He will look to score in the double-digits in back-to-back games for only the third time this year when Washington takes on Utah on Monday.

Markieff Morris    F  Wizards

 

 

Markieff Morris hit just 1-of-6 shots for two points, four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Timberwolves. Morris has yet to break out and hasn't looked particularly good since returning from his hernia. He's averaging just 7.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and is shooting 39 percent over his last five games. He should eventually get it going, but if you're tired of waiting, dropping him for a hot free agent might not be a bad idea. Just know that if you drop him, you probably aren't going to have a chance at picking him back up.
