  • Mavericks' Markieff Morris: Dealing with illness

    Morris is questionable for Friday's game against Portland due to an illness, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.

    Morris has appeared in just two of the Mavericks' last seven contests, so his potential absence shouldn't impact fantasy. During Wednesday's blowout win over Portland, Morris played double-digit minutes for the first time since Dec. 22.

  • Mavericks' Markieff Morris: Rare appearance in win

    Morris totaled three points (1-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 12 minutes during Wednesday's 126-97 win over the Trail Blazers.

    Morris cracked the rotation for just the second time in the past seven games, called upon as the Mavericks ran away with the victory. Given he is outside the top 400 in fantasy this season, managers can rest assured he is not worth considering, even in the deepest of leagues.

  • Mavericks' Markieff Morris: Making first start as Maverick

    Morris is part of the first unit for Friday's game against the Rockets.

    After entering the Dallas rotation in December amidst the absences of Maxi Kleber (toe), Josh Green (elbow) and most recently Dereck Lively (ankle), Morris will make his first start of the season. Over his last five appearances, he is averaging 2.8 points and 2.6 rebounds over 11.5 minutes.

  • Mavericks' Markieff Morris: Back to bench

    Morris will head back to the bench for Saturday's game against the Spurs.

  • Mavericks' Markieff Morris: Iffy for Sunday

    The Mavericks list Morris (non-COVID-19-related illness) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Hornets.

    Morris missed Friday's 125-114 loss to the Nuggets with the illness, but the Mavericks will wait and see how he feels closer to Sunday's 7:30 p.m. ET tipoff before determining if he'll be available. The veteran forward hasn't been part of the Mavericks' rotation all season and likely won't be featured on the second unit even if he's cleared in advance of the opening tip.

    Morris (ankle) was able to play in Friday's preseason game against Detroit.

  • Mavericks' Markieff Morris: Not suiting up against Minnesota

    Morris is out for Saturday's preseason game versus the Timberwolves due to left ankle soreness.

  • Mavericks' Markieff Morris: Set to stay with Dallas

    Morris is expected to re-sign with Dallas on Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    The Mavericks acquired Morris from Brooklyn in February, but he hardly saw any playing time for Dallas, averaging just 4.5 points and 1.5 rebounds in 8.6 minutes across eight appearances. Dallas retained Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber this summer and added Grant Williams (hand), Richaun Holmes, Dereck Lively and Derrick Jones to its frontcourt, so it's unclear where the veteran will fit in upon re-upping with the Mavericks.
