Morris finished with 20 points (8-12 FG, 4-5 3Pt), six rebounds, five assists, and one steal in 28 minutes during Monday's 105-99 victory over the Grizzlies.
Morris was magnificent for the Nuggets on Monday, matching his season-high with 20 points off the bench. The Nuggets are without three of their regular starters and Morris has been feasting in his new role. While this type of production is unlikely to come on a nightly basis, he should probably be rostered in standard leagues, at least for the next couple of weeks.
Morris scored 10 points (4-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt) while adding seven assists, five steals and two rebounds in 30 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 106-98 loss to the Hawks.
The steals were naturally a career high for the second-year guard, who's seeing his first significant action in the NBA thanks to all the injuries on the Nuggets' roster. Morris' court time will dwindle once players like Gary Harris (hip) and Isaiah Thomas (hip) get healthy, but even in the short term his inconsistent minutes and production make him a poor fantasy option.
Morris contributed 13 points (6-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt), five assists, and three rebounds in 34 minutes during Saturday's 125-115 loss to the Pelicans.
Morris shifted back to the bench Saturday, finishing with 13 points and five assists. He functions better in a bench role as opposed to a starter and this was evident here. This was his highest minutes total of the season and with his recent form, that appears to be a trend that is not going to stop. He is a fringe standard league option right now but could take a hit with the eventual return of Will Barton.
Morris totaled eight points (4-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 29 minutes during Thursday's 138-93 victory over the Hawks.
Morris replaced Jamal Murray in the starting lineup but failed to produce anything too spectacular. While on the surface, a move like this would appear to increase Morris' value, the opposite may, in fact, be the case. Playing alongside Nikola Jokic and the other starters certainly reduces Morris' usage and subsequent production. The promotion was likely a spot start as Jamal Murray was disciplined for a breach of team rules. Nonetheless, Morris remains more of a deep league option at this stage.
Morris will start at point guard Thursday against the Hawks, Christian Clark of BSNDenver.com reports.
Morris gets the nod over Jamal Murray as the Nuggets search for better results on defense. Morris put up 19 points in Tuesday's loss to Houston, so he also has upside on the offensive end of the court.
