    Nuggets' Monte Morris: Hopes to start Opening Night

    Monte Morris said Tuesday that he hopes to start on Opening Night, but he's yet to discuss his role with coach Michael Malone, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.With Jamal Murray (knee) set to miss at least the first few months of the season, the Denver Nuggets have an obvious hole at point guard and -- on paper, at least -- Morris would make sense as the fill-in starter. It's not a guarantee, however, as the Nuggets tried both Facundo Campazzo and Austin Rivers in the starting five late last season, and both players remain on the roster for 2021-22. Regardless of how the lineup shakes out, Morris projects as the best fantasy option of the three until Murray returns. Last season, the Iowa State product averaged 10.2 points, 2.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.1 threes per game to go with a 48/38/80 shooting line.

    Nuggets' Monte Morris: Scores 19 in start

    Monte Morris finished Sunday's Game 4 against the Suns with 19 points (8-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-3 FT) and six assists.Morris got the start in place of Facundo Campazzo, and while he was productive in 35 minutes, he finished as a team-worst minus-17 in the seven-point loss. Overall, it was a disappointing, four-game sweep for the Denver Nuggets, but Morris played well in Games 3 and 4, totaling 40 points, 11 assists and five three-pointers. With Jamal Murray (knee) set to miss a large portion of the 2021-22 campaign, Morris could find himself in an elevated role to begin next season.

    Nuggets' Monte Morris: Bounces back with 21 points

    Monte Morris had 21 points (8-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and five assists in Friday's Game 3 loss to the Suns.Morris really struggled through the first two games of the series, scoring just five points on 2-of-17 shooting (1-7 3Pt). He was able to break out of that mini-slump Friday night, but it wasn't enough to prevent the Denver Nuggets from falling behind 0-3 in the series. Morris saw 30 minutes of action off the bench, while starter Facundo Campazzo played only 18 minutes, so that playing-time split will be something to monitor as Sunday's Game 4 approaches.

The point guard averaged 15.3 points per game during the first-round series and should be in line for a sizable role off the bench again during the upcoming Western Conference Semifinals.

His 30 minutes on the court is a solid indicator that his hamstring injury is behind him.
