Clippers' Marcus Morris: Productive in Game 1 blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris tallied 18 points (7-10 FG, 4-5 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 27 minutes during Thursday's 120-97 Game 1 victory over Denver.

Morris hit the ground running, connecting on the bulk of his shot attempts as the Clippers blew the game out during a dominant second quarter. To be fair, the defense was nothing to write home about and Morris certainly cashed in on a tired-looking Nuggets squad. This is about as good as it gets for Morris, who is unlikely to repeat this kind of performance all too often.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Ejected in Sunday's victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris managed just nine points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt), one rebound and one steal in 11 minutes during Sunday's 111-97 victory over Dallas.

Morris was ejected after only 11 minutes after taking a careless swipe at Luka Doncic on a drive to the basket. After a couple of questionable moments in previous games, Morris could come under scrutiny for his actions despite claiming to be innocent. It was certainly an aggressive action by Morris and he will need to calm down if he is to be productive moving forward.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: On point with two-way game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris recorded 19 points (8-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt), six rebounds, four steals and an assist across 32 minutes in Monday's 118-110 playoff-opening win over the Mavericks.

Morris excelled on both sides of the ball, providing a clear reminder of his considerable defensive skills. When he combines that with a superb night of shooting, his value skyrockets. If the Clippers hope to neutralize Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis in this series, they'll need Morris to continue offering a steady presence on defense. Although his overall production took a dip after joining the Clippers in a midseason trade, Morris had been enjoying a career year with the Knicks, averaging 19.6 points and 5.4 rebounds over 43 games.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Not in starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris is not in the starting five for Friday's game against the Thunder, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Coach Doc Rivers is starting a skeleton crew, but Morris has not officially been ruled out. That said, we shouldn't be surprised if he gets the day off. JaMychal Green is starting at power forward against OKC.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Pops for 16 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris had 16 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 117-115 loss to Phoenix.

Morris contributed on both ends of the floor with his best performance of the seeding games thus far. He has been logging heavy minutes, and until Montrezl Harrell (personal) returns to Orlando, that should continue to be the case. While he won't have the opportunities he had during his time in New York, Morris has demonstrated the ability to score in bunches and you could do worse as a backend fantasy option.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Scores 18 against Kings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris scored 18 points (6-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding five rebounds, two assists and a steal in 24 minutes off the bench during Monday's scrimmage against the Kings.

The 30-year-old wasn't exactly setting the house on fire from a fantasy perspective after being acquired from the Knicks in February, but Morris was brought to the Clippers to give them another strong defender, not replicate the career-high 19.6 points a game he was averaging in New York. Still, if he can supply solid complementary scoring behind Kawhi Leonard and Paul George as he did Monday, so much the better for the team's title chances.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Posts 13 in return to team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris registered 13 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and an assist across 25 minutes in Saturday's 105-100 scrimmage win over the Wizards.

Morris barely had an opportunity to play with the Clippers before play halted in March, but he averaged 9.5 points, four rebounds and 1.5 assists in 12 games with his new team. Morris is known league-wide as an excellent lockdown defender, and his insertion into the Clippers' starting lineup provides a solid veteran presence. While his skill-set won't result in superlative fantasy numbers, any player that has a starting role with the fast-paced Clippers is worthy of consideration.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Reports to Orlando bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris joined the Clippers for their practice in Orlando on Tuesday, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.

Morris wasn't included in the Clippers' main traveling party that reported to the Walt Disney World complex earlier this month, but after arriving late and completing a mandatory quarantine period, he'll be good to go for the resumption of the 2019-20 season. Since being dealt to the Clippers by the Knicks on Feb. 6, Morris has started in all 12 of his appearances for Los Angeles, averaging 9.5 points, 4.0 boards, 1.5 assists and 1.4 triples in 28.3 minutes per game while shooting 38.6 percent from the floor.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Ineffective since break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris averaged 9.0 points on just 36.6 percent shooting in nine games since the All-Star break.

The Clippers acquired Morris from New York before the deadline, but he was somewhat of a disappointment prior to the suspension of the season. Morris scored in double-digits in five of his first six games with the Clippers, but over his last six games, he shot just 33.3 percent from the field, including 20.7 percent from beyond the arc (4.8 3PA/G). In a high-profile loss to the Lakers on Mar. 8, Morris scored just one point on 0-of-9 shooting in 29 minutes.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Strong showing against former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris racked up 18 points (6-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one block in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 102-92 win at Phoenix.

Morris hasn't missed a beat since joining the Clippers and quickly secured a starting role in Doc Rivers' scheme. The veteran power forward, who was acquired from the Knicks via trade earlier this month, has started all six of his games with the Clippers so far and has scored in double digits in five of those contests. He is averaging 11.7 points and 4.2 rebounds in 30.8 minutes per game as a Clipper thus far.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Scores 13 points Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris totaled 13 points (5-11 Fg, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block in 24 minutes during Monday's 124-97 victory over Memphis.

Morris managed to contribute despite the return of both Paul George and Patrick Beverley, though he didn't exactly fill up the stat sheet. With the Clippers back to full strength, Morris is likely to fade out of standard-league consideration. Still, he could see boosts from time to time when the team's main pieces receive rest days.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Solid in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris collected 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt), eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 41 minutes in Thursday's 141-133 double overtime loss versus the Celtics.

Morris started in this game and played huge minutes with Patrick Beverley (groin) out and Paul George (hamstring) exiting after only 14 minutes of action. His usage has seen a dramatic dip since being traded to the Clippers, but Morris is still worth a start in most season-long formats, especially if George misses any time due to the new hamstring injury. The former Knick would have to play big minutes and would be a nightly double-double threat.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Modest numbers in big minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris posted 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and one block across 35 minutes Tuesday in the Clippers' 110-103 loss to the 76ers.

Playing time wasn't an issue for Morris despite both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George suiting up in the loss, but the 30-year-old's usage predictably suffered while he shared the court with the two superstars. It's clear that Morris won't get the sort of opportunity he received with a rudderless Knicks squad earlier this season, but if he can replicate this sort of line on a regular basis, he'll at least keep himself relevant in 12-team leagues.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Scores 10 points in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris ended with 10 points (5-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt), four rebounds, three steals and two assists in 22 minutes during Sunday's 133-92 victory over the Cavaliers.

Morris made his debut as the Clippers routed the hapless Cavaliers. Morris' playing time was limited as a result of the lopsided scoreline, so getting a full read on his role moving forward was tough. His value is almost certain to take a hit in Los Angeles, although he could still have back-end 12-team value. He is probably worth holding in most cases to see how things play out over the next few games.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Debuting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris doesn't appear on the Clippers' injury report and should be available to make his team debut Sunday versus the Cavaliers, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

While it remains unclear if Morris will enter the starting five in his first game with the Clippers, he could be in store for a high-minute role right away as Los Angeles looks to compensate for the absences of Kawhi Leonard (knee) and Patrick Beverley (groin). Leonard at the very least should be ready to play in the Clippers' next game Tuesday in Philadelphia, so Morris should be in store for a considerable downturn from the career-high 23.7 usage rate he held with the Knicks this season. Morris probably won't be much more than a secondary option whenever he's on the floor with Los Angeles, as Leonard, Paul George and Lou Williams all look to be higher-priority offensive weapons for the Clippers.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Won't debut Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris (not injury related) will not make his Clippers debut Saturday against the Timberwolves, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

The Clippers' end of the trade is still pending, so Morris will be unable to suit up Saturday. He'll likely end up making his team debut Sunday against the Cavaliers.

Clippers' Marcus Morris: Heading to Clippers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Knicks agreed Thursday to trade Morris to the Clippers in exchange for Maurice Harkless and a future first-round pick, Shams Charania of Stadium reports.

Earlier this week, the Knicks appeared to be leaning toward retaining Morris and working out an extension with him, but the team seemingly changed its stance after firing team president Steve Mills on Tuesday. Morris had enjoyed a career-best season for New York, averaging 19.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.7 three-pointers, 1.4 assists and 0.8 steals in 32.3 minutes while converting at an impressive 43.9 percent clip from distance. He may not notice much of a reduction in playing time as he heads West, but expect Morris' usage rate -- and his overall fantasy value -- to drop precipitously while he takes more of a back seat on offense to the likes of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams. Morris could be ready to debut for his new team in the Clippers' next game Saturday at Minnesota.

Knicks' Marcus Morris: Team-high 26 in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris scored 26 points (8-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT) while adding two rebounds and an assist in 36 minutes during Monday's 139-134 overtime win over the Cavaliers.

Despite a stomach bug that had him listed as questionable coming into the contest, Morris led the Knicks in scoring, although the rest of his line was fairly empty. If the team is thinking about moving him at the trade deadline, Morris is doing everything he can to boost his market value, scoring at least 20 points in seven of his last nine games and at least 17 in each of his last 10.

Knicks' Marcus Morris: Good to go Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris (illness) is available Monday against the Cavaliers.

Morris is battling an undisclosed illness, though it won't keep him from taking the court Monday. Over his past five games, Morris is averaging 22.0 points and 6.0 rebounds in 33.4 minutes.

Knicks' Marcus Morris: Battling illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris is questionable for Monday's game against Cleveland due to an illness, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.

Morris could miss Monday's game after picking up an illness over the weekend. If he's held out, Kevin Knox would presumably move into the starting five, while Damyean Dotson could see a boost in run off the bench.
