Morris put up 19 points (8-12 FG, 3-3 3Pt), four rebounds, three steals and two assists across 22 minutes in a 101-99 win over the Bulls on Tuesday.
Morris battled foul trouble and saw far less minutes than normal, but his scoring surge continued against a shorthanded Bulls squad, as he hit double figures for the ninth game in a row, and the 18th time in the last 20 games. That kind of consistency has been a beacon of light for fantasy owners, with Morris bringing further value for his work on the defensive end. He's now tallied three steals in back-to-back games, bringing his average up to 1.2 per game on the season, which matches a career high.
Morris recorded his second double-double of the season on Sunday, and it was his third performance with 10 or more rebounds. The 27-year-old forward hasn't shot the ball well on a regular basis in 2016-17, but he has now scored in double digits during eight straight games while connecting on 51.7 percent from the field.
Morris put up 12 points (5-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and a block over 32 minutes Monday in a 91-101 loss to the Rockets.
Despite never shooting over 35 percent from three in a full season for his career, Markieff Morris now finds himself tasked with spacing the floor for a Wizards team desperate for shooting. Other than Bradley Beal, Washington doesn't feature a single outside threat, and Morris is ill-fitted for the role.
Morris scored 23 points (10-17 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding nine rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block in 33 minutes during Sunday's 117-110 win over the Clippers.
It's the first time in over a month Morris has scored 20 or more points in a game, but he has put up double-digit points in nine straight. The former Sun doesn't play a large part in a Wizards' offense dominated by its backcourt, but he's still providing consistent production in a secondary role.
Morris (foot) returned from a one-game absence during Washington's 122-108 win over Detroit on Friday and posted 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt), four assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block across 18 minutes.
Morris returned to the starting lineup and scored in double figures for the eighth straight game despite only playing 18 minutes due to foul trouble. He had shot below 45 percent from the field in his last four contests but shot the ball better in limited run Friday. Kelly Oubre, who started and played 40 minutes during Morris' absence, got 34 minutes in this game. Morris' minutes will likely trend up against the Clippers on Sunday.
