Morris averaged 9.0 points on just 36.6 percent shooting in nine games since the All-Star break. The Clippers acquired Morris from New York before the deadline, but he was somewhat of a disappointment prior to the suspension of the season. Morris scored in double-digits in five of his first six games with the Clippers, but over his last six games, he shot just 33.3 percent from the field, including 20.7 percent from beyond the arc (4.8 3PA/G). In a high-profile loss to the Lakers on Mar. 8, Morris scored just one point on 0-of-9 shooting in 29 minutes.
Morris racked up 18 points (6-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one block in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 102-92 win at Phoenix. Morris hasn't missed a beat since joining the Clippers and quickly secured a starting role in Doc Rivers' scheme. The veteran power forward, who was acquired from the Knicks via trade earlier this month, has started all six of his games with the Clippers so far and has scored in double digits in five of those contests. He is averaging 11.7 points and 4.2 rebounds in 30.8 minutes per game as a Clipper thus far.
Morris totaled 13 points (5-11 Fg, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block in 24 minutes during Monday's 124-97 victory over Memphis. Morris managed to contribute despite the return of both Paul George and Patrick Beverley, though he didn't exactly fill up the stat sheet. With the Clippers back to full strength, Morris is likely to fade out of standard-league consideration. Still, he could see boosts from time to time when the team's main pieces receive rest days.
Morris collected 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt), eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 41 minutes in Thursday's 141-133 double overtime loss versus the Celtics. Morris started in this game and played huge minutes with Patrick Beverley (groin) out and Paul George (hamstring) exiting after only 14 minutes of action. His usage has seen a dramatic dip since being traded to the Clippers, but Morris is still worth a start in most season-long formats, especially if George misses any time due to the new hamstring injury. The former Knick would have to play big minutes and would be a nightly double-double threat.
Morris posted 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and one block across 35 minutes Tuesday in the Clippers' 110-103 loss to the 76ers. Playing time wasn't an issue for Morris despite both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George suiting up in the loss, but the 30-year-old's usage predictably suffered while he shared the court with the two superstars. It's clear that Morris won't get the sort of opportunity he received with a rudderless Knicks squad earlier this season, but if he can replicate this sort of line on a regular basis, he'll at least keep himself relevant in 12-team leagues.
