  • Wizards' Monte Morris: Traded to Wiz

    Morris was traded to the Wizards from the Nuggets on Wednesday, along with Will Barton, in exchange for Kenatvious Caldwell-Pope and Ish Smith, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    In a deal that pushes Denver under the luxury tax line, the Nuggets will swap a pair of key rotation players to bring in a veteran wing in Caldwell-Pope as well as a backup point guard on a non-guaranteed deal in Smith. A late-second-round pick in 2017, Morris has gradually developed into one of the more reliable backup point guards in the NBA over the last few years. After posting 10.2 points and 3.2 assists per game in 2020-21, Morris moved into a larger role last season with Jamal Murray (knee) unavailable. The Iowa State product started 74 of his 75 appearances, posting career bests in virtually every statistical category, including minutes (29.9), points (12.6) and assists (4.4) per game. Morris is under contract through the 2023-24 season, so the Wizards likely view him as a potential long-term piece alongside Bradley Beal, Kristaps Porzingis, Kyle Kuzma and No. 10 overall pick Johnny Davis. Once camp begins in the fall, Morris may end up competing with Davis for the starting point guard job.

  • Nuggets' Monte Morris: Puts up 24 points on 11 shots

    Morris finished Sunday's 126-121 victory over the Warriors with 24 points (7-11 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT), two rebounds and five assists across 29 minutes.

    After three straight unremarkable efforts to begin the playoffs, Morris had easily his best individual game of the series. He was responsible for five of Denver's 15 threes as a team, though he did commit three of the Nuggets' 20 turnovers. Heading into Wednesday's Game 5, expect Morris and Bones Hyland (15 points in 20 minutes) to continue handling most of the minutes at point guard.

  • Nuggets' Monte Morris: Racks up four steals Saturday

    Morris logged 10 points (4-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six assists and four steals in 31 minutes during Saturday's 123-107 loss to the Warriors.

    Morris was one of four Nuggets players to notch double-digit points, but his primary statistical contribution came on the defensive end. The fifth-year guard led all players with four thefts -- more than he recorded in any regular-season contest this season. Morris' primary role for Denver is as a distributor, and he tied Nikola Jokic for the team lead with six assists in the playoff loss.

  • Nuggets' Monte Morris: Won't play Sunday

    Morris (elbow) is out Sunday against the Lakers, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Morris was a late addition to Sunday's injury report due to left elbow soreness, and he'll be unable to suit up for the regular-season finale. Bones Hyland, Facundo Campazzo and Austin Rivers should see additional usage Sunday.

  • Nuggets' Monte Morris: Questionable Sudnay

    Morris is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lakers due to left elbow soreness.

    Morris was a late addition to the injury report Sunday, but his potential absence is likely precautionary as Denver prepares for a potential playoff run. If Morris is sidelined, Bones Hyland, Facundo Campazzo and Austin Rivers are all candidates for increased roles.

  • Nuggets' Monte Morris: Drops 10 dimes in win

    Morris racked up six points (1-9 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, 10 assists, one block and two steals across 36 minutes during Sunday's 129-118 victory over the Lakers.

    Morris didn't do much in the scoring column, but his 10 assists salvaged a decent fantasy line in Sunday's victory. The assist total was a season-high for Morris, who only averages 4.4 assists per game. It's a very low average for a starting point guard playing on a winning team

  • Nuggets' Monte Morris: Comes close to double-double

    Morris recorded 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, nine assists and one steal across 34 minutes during Monday's 113-109 victory over the Hornets.

    The nine assists tied a season-high mark for Morris, and this was the first time he recorded more than five dimes since a March 14 win over the 76ers. Despite operating as the point guard, Morris is not the main playmaker for the Nuggets and holds a secondary role in the team's offensive scheme. Thus, his fantasy upside isn't very high and he doesn't carry a ton of value outside of deep formats.

  • Nuggets' Monte Morris: Solid in win

    Morris chipped in 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt), one rebound, four assists and one steal in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 127-109 win over the Wizards.

    in Wednesday's contest, Morris fell in line with his season averages of 13.0 points and 4.3 assists. Although Bones Hyland (17 points, 24 minutes) has been ascending of late, Morris remains the starter and is routinely logging more than 30 minutes per game. His ceiling may be slightly lower than earlier in the season, but Morris can be counted on for this level of production moving forward.

  • Nuggets' Monte Morris: Puts up 20 points in win

    Morris had 20 points (8-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, four assists and two steals in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 106-100 win over the Kings.

    Morris ended as one of the leading scorers for the Nuggets, and the floor general has experienced an uptick in his scoring figures of late. He's recorded 10 or more points in four games in a row, but he's also cleared the 15-point plateau in each of his last three contests.

  • Nuggets' Monte Morris: Nears double-double in win

    Morris registered 18 points (7-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight assists, three rebounds and one block across 36 minutes during Sunday's 138-130 overtime win over the Pelicans.

    Morris narrowly missed out on notching his first double-double of the campaign, but his production was a welcome sight nonetheless after he had turned in underwhelming averages of 7.7 points, 2.7 assists, 2.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.0 three-pointers over the previous three contests. An uptick in playing time had a major hand in Morris' increased production, with the point guard benefiting from the extra period in addition to the early exit of Will Barton (ankle). Morris looks to be more of a back-end roster option in 12-team leagues, and his value will sink further once the likes of Michael Porter (back) and Jamal Murray (knee) make their late-season returns from long-term absences.

  • Nuggets' Monte Morris: Tallies 19 points Thursday

    Morris notched 19 points (7-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal in 31 minutes during Thursday's 128-110 victory over the Kings.

    Morris ranked third on Denver in scoring thanks to an efficient 7-for-9 shooting line. The point guard hasn't hit the 20-point mark since Jan. 5 but has notched 19 points three times in 20 games since that date. Morris is posting a career-best 12.8 points and 4.3 assists on the campaign.

  • Nuggets' Monte Morris: Nails game-winning triple

    Morris (concussion) provided 13 points (4-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six assists and four rebounds across 31 minutes during Wednesday's 117-116 win over Golden State.

    Morris took only six shots in the game, but he converted a three-pointer from the right wing with the clock expiring in the fourth quarter to give Denver a one-point win. The fifth-year guard had missed each of the Nuggets' previous three games due to a concussion, yet he played more minutes than any Denver player aside from Nikola Jokic on Wednesday. Morris is providing moderate fantasy value this season with per-game averages of 12.7 points, 4.3 assists and 3.0 rebounds and 1.6 treys.

  • Nuggets' Monte Morris: Rejoins starting five

    Morris will start Wednesday's game against the Warriors, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

    Morris will return to the starting lineup after missing the last three games with a concussion. As a result, Bones Hyland will shift back to a bench role. Morris is averaging 12.6 points, 2.9 rebounds and 4.3 assists across 30.0 minutes per game this season.
