Nuggets' Monte Morris: Scores 12 points in preseason win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris totaled 12 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four assists and two rebounds 19 minutes during Tuesday's 105-94 preseason victory over the Trail Blazers.

Morris picked right up where he left off last season, scoring 12 points to go with team-high four assists. Morris was tremendous for the Nuggets last season, flirting with standard league value for periods. He is locked in as the backup point guard which does cap his value somewhat. However, he is arguably the best facilitator behind Nikola Jokic and could spend time on the floor with the starters at times. He is not worth rostering in standard formats but is worth keeping an eye on should he get hot.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Solid showing in Game 2 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris collected 11 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six assists, one rebound, and one steal in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 114-105 Game 2 win over the Spurs.

Morris rediscovered his scoring rhythm, this after totaling two points on one-of-six from the field in Saturday's Game 1 loss. Moreover, he has now handed out 11 assists compared to zero turnovers through these first two postseason affairs.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Impressive performance in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris finished with 22 points (8-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 118-108 loss to Utah.

Morris turned in his best performance in quite some time Tuesday, finishing with 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting. Morris has been a pleasant surprise for the Nuggets this season and is basically the reason Isaiah Thomas is out of the rotation. His role is up and down depending on the nature of the scoreline which means he is better served as a streaming option. The Nuggets need to win Wednesday to ensure a top-two finish meaning Morris will likely remain on the bench.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Cracks starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris has been named to the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

Morris will get the nod at point guard in place of Jamal Murray, who's out for rest purposes. Morris' last opportunity to join the starting five dates back to Feb. 4 against Detroit when he dropped 18 points over 34 minutes.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Thrives in lopsided win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris finished with 19 points (8-13 FG, 3-5 Pt), three rebounds, three assists and one steal across 26 minutes in the Nuggets' 113-85 win over the Spurs on Wednesday.

Morris saw plenty of minutes in the lopsided victory, producing an efficient line based on his best shooting effort since March 22. The 2017 second-round pick has been seeing at least 20 minutes in the majority of contests, and he's most recently parlayed that into seven double-digit scoring efforts over the last 10 games. Morris should continue seeing a similar allotment of playing time behind Jamal Murray for the remainder of the regular season.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Scores 16 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris finished with 16 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four assists and three rebounds over 27 minutes in the Nuggets' loss to the Rockets on Thursday.

Morris came away with a solid stat line in Thursday's loss, though his play this season has been very inconsistent, especially in the scoring department. Morris has averaged 24.7 minutes over his last 10 games, but the production just isn't there to make him a viable play outside of deep leagues.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Plays 31 minutes in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris had just seven points, four assists, two steals, and one block in 31 minutes during Thursday's 100-99 victory over the Mavericks.

Morris was disappointing Thursday, ending the game with limited production across the board. The numbers were certainly not a positive but he did manage to play 31 minutes and that is something to take notice of. Isaiah Thomas is going to be out of the rotation for the foreseeable future which means Morris is going to hover around the fringes of standard leagues. Nights such as this emphasize why he is going to struggle to hold down a permanent roster spot, but should still be considered as an assists and points streamer.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Productive in big win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris totaled 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-5 3Pt), six assists, five rebounds, and one steal in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 133-107 victory over Minnesota.

Morris has played at least 27 minutes in two straight games, however, both were blowouts. He has scored at least 16 points in each of those two games, also handing out a combined 12 assists. Perhaps the biggest takeaway from Tuesday's game was that Isaiah Thomas was out of the rotation altogether. If this move continues moving forward, Morris could creep back into standard league discussions.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Solid night in thumping loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris tallied 17 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six assists, and two steals in 29 minutes during Friday's 122-105 loss to Golden State.

Morris had himself a nice game despite the Nuggets being on the wrong end of the scoreline. The starters terrible which afforded the second unit additional playing time throughout. Morris has shown the ability to run the offense and that was on show again here. His value has faded with a number of healthy players returning, however, his dynasty value continues to grow, but will depend on his playing time moving forward.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Efficient night Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris totaled 17 points (7-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 27 minutes during Monday's 103-87 victory over the Heat.

Morris, who had struggled in his previous game, bounced back Monday, scoring 17 points to go with seven assists. The game was well in hand midway through the third quarter as the Nuggets ran away with the 38th victory of the season. Even when the Nuggets are fully healthy, Morris should be able to remain in the rotation, albeit in a more limited role. He is worth holding onto in standard formats at the moment, although once Gary Harris (groin) and Isaiah Thomas (hip) are back, his status may need to be reevaluated.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Adjusts well to new role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris recorded 18 points (8-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, five assists and a steal in 28 minutes Wednesday against Brooklyn.

Morris shifted back to a bench role due to the return of Jamal Murray from an ankle injury, but his production didn't suffer much, posting a scoring total that's well above his season average. Morris has been rock solid across the board of late, averaging 18.2 points, 6.6 assists, 5.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals over his previous five matchups, however that could change after moving back to the bench.

February 6, 2019 07:28 PM
Nuggets' Monte Morris: Will come off the bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

With Jamal Murray returning from injury, he is returning to his usual role in the starting five and bumping Morris back to the bench. Morris was averaging 38.0 minutes over his past four games, so he should see a fairly significant decrease in minutes as he returns to his usual role on the bench.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Plays 41 minutes Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris totaled 17 points (7-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 assists, seven rebounds, and one steal in 41 minutes during Saturday's 107-106 victory over Minnesota.

Morris remained in the starting lineup Saturday, coming through with a double-double in a whopping 41 minutes. Both Jamal Murray (ankle) and Gary Harris (groin) could spend more time on the sidelines which would likely result in Morris seeing plenty of court time. If this is, in fact, the case, Morris is a must-roster player until such time that Murray and Harris return.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Continues excelling as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris pitched in 18 points (7-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight assists, six rebounds and two steals across 37 minutes in the Nuggets' 136-122 win over the Rockets on Friday.

Morris continued to thrive in his first-unit role during the high-scoring win, posting his sixth double-digit scoring effort over the last seven games. Red-hot shooting has played a pivotal role, as Morris has drained 60.0 percent or better of his attempts in five of those contests. With Jamal Murray (ankle) having no firm timetable for return at the moment, Morris is set to continue reaping the benefits of starter's minutes for the foreseeable future.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Scores 20 points in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris ended with 20 points 8-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists, and two steals in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 105-99 victory over New Orleans.

Morris moved into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game, filling in for Jamal Murray (ankle) who continues to recover from an ankle sprain. Morris took full advantage of an inexperienced Pelicans backcourt, putting up one of his better performances of the season. He may remain in the starting lineup if Murray is forced to miss additional time which certainly puts him on the radar in most competitive leagues.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris will start Wednesday's game against the pelicans, Katy Winge of the Altitude TV reports.

Morris will start in place of Jamal Murray who's struggling through an ankle injury. In 49 games this season, the second-year pro's averaging 10.0 points, 3.7 assists, 2.4 rebounds and 1.2 threes in 24.1 minutes.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Scores nine points in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris managed nine points (4-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt), two rebounds, and one assist in 25 minutes during Monday's 95-92 win over the Grizzlies.

Morris fell one point shy of producing a fifth straight double-digit scoring performance. However, he didn't do much else in this one, failing to capitalize on the absence of Jamal Murray (ankle). Morris has seen his assists, rebounds, steals, and minutes dwindle to the lowest monthly averages of the season here in January, but he'll have a decent chance to end the month on a high note during Wednesday's matchup versus the lowly Pelicans defense.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Big night off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris had 21 points (9-13 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), five assists, three rebounds and two steals in Monday's loss to Houston.

Morris' production has taken a step back of late with Gary Harris back in the mix, but he broke through with just his third 20-point performance of the season. The Iowa State product added played 24 minutes after seeing 15 and 11 minutes, respectively, in Denver's last two games.

January 4, 2019 08:20 AM
Nuggets' Monte Morris: Plays 11 minutes in Thursday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris had three points (1-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and one rebound in 11 minutes during Thursday's 117-113 win over the Kings.

Morris has seen his production slow to a crawl, scoring in single digits in four straight games while failing to record an assist in this one for the first time since the second contest of the campaign. The return of Gary Harris (hip) appears to be resulting in a reduced role for Morris, who hadn't seen less than 20 minutes since Nov. 3.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Continues producing off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris collected 15 points (6-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt), four assists and three steals across 29 minutes in the Nuggets' 111-103 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday.

Morris checked in with the second-highest scoring total on the second unit and third overall on the team for the night. The third-year guard has become a legitimate, consistent offensive force, boosting his standing across all formats in a bench role that's afforded him 26.9 minutes per game in December. Morris has parlayed that allotment of playing time into averages of 13.5 points, 4.2 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 1.6 steals across 10 contests during the month, and he's impressively shooting 50.0 percent over that span, both overall and from three-point range.
