Morris was extremely efficient offensively while reaching double figures in scoring for the second time in the last three games. He's coming off by far his best month of the current campaign, and Morris will try to build on this performance heading into Saturday's favorable matchup versus the lowly Cavaliers.

  • Morris totaled 12 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, three rebounds and one steal in 29 minutes during Sunday's 133-118 victory over Toronto. Morris continues to be impactful off the bench, earning himself meaningful minutes over the past two weeks. During that time, he has been a top-60 player thanks to his efficient shooting and high steal rate. The is certainly a world where he supplants Will Barton in the pecking order but until then, he is just a fringe option in standard formats.

  • Morris provided 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), six rebounds, six assists and two steals across 31 minutes Sunday in the Nuggets' 128-116 win over the Timberwolves. Morris capitalized on the playing time he received early in the contest and ended up cutting into the minutes of Will Barton, allowing the third-year guard to churn out a quality line. In his five outings since moving back to the bench, Morris is averaging 11.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.0 rebounds and 1.6 steals in 25.2 minutes, but the scoring production in particular might be unsustainable. He's shot 55.8 percent from the floor over that five-game sample, well above his career rate (48.2 percent).

  • Morris totaled 15 points (7-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block in 42 minutes during Wednesday's 98-95 victory over Utah. Morris was back in the starting lineup after Will Barton (knee) was ruled out prior to tipoff. Morris ended with a serviceable fantasy line, paying off for those who picked him up in standard leagues. Barton doesn't sound as though he is going to miss an extended period, and his return likely will send Morris back to the bench. Add to that the addition of Shabazz Napier from the Timberwolves and Morris certainly doesn't have the most appealing fantasy outlook.
