Morris tallied nine points (4-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt), 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal across 33 minutes during a 92-83 win over the Magic on Friday. Morris cooled off after his career night Wednesday, but did match a season high with 11 rebounds in the win. He has played at least 30 minutes in five of the last six games, and while he isn't completely consistent, Morris is receiving enough minutes right now to be at least worth a look in most leagues.
Morris produced 31 points (11-22 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-7 FT), nine rebounds, two steals and an assist in 44 minutes during Wednesday's 125-124 loss to the Wizards. Morris drew the start at power forward with Al Horford (illness) sidelined, and he took full advantage. It was easily his best game of the season, as he scored a full 11 points more than his previous best total. If Horford remains out Morris should see extended time, although he does produce decent stat lines with the second unit as well.
Morris will pick up the spot start for Sunday's game against the Pacers, Celtics play-by-play announcer Sean Grande reports. Al Horford was a surprising scratch for Sunday's contest due to an illness, so Morris will get the call to start in his place. Look for Morris to take on a 30-plus minute role, which should mean a temporary uptick in value. In 14 previous starts this season, Morris boasts averages of 12.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 25.1 minutes.
Morris accounted for 21 points (8-13 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), four rebounds, one assist and three steals in 34 minutes Saturday as Boston came up short against Houston. Morris was a monster off the bench for Boston in a game where they needed the scoring punch. He was the Celtics high-scorer in a game where the bench totaled 67 points. Morris is a useful piece for the Celtics because he can guard multiple positions and score from anywhere on the floor. Saturday's performance is a bit of an outlier, but it serves as a reminder of what the best-case scenario is for him, and for that reason you should keep tabs on his availability, and his role in the Celtics offense.
Morris managed 13 points (6-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight rebounds, and two assists in 34 minutes during Monday's 109-98 win over the Grizzlies. Morris has scored in double figures and surpassed 30 minutes in three of the last four games despite moving back to the bench. The 28-year-old forward is averaging a career-high 5.4 rebounds per game while providing steady scoring even though he is seeing his fewest load of playing time since 2013-14, and he remains a decent option in deep leagues.
