Nuggets' Monte Morris: Pops for 14 points in Tuesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris totaled 14 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound and one assist in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 114-106 Game 3 victory over the Lakers.

Morris played an important role off the bench, connecting on a couple of key baskets as the Nuggets held on for a well-deserved victory. Despite the ability to play as a facilitator, Morris serves primarily as a spot-scorer when both Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic are healthy. The Nuggets will be hoping Morris maintains some sort of offensive rhythm as they look to level the series at 2-2 on Thursday.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Drops 12 points off bench in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris compiled 12 points (5-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes during Thursday's 120-97 Game 1 loss to the Clippers.

Morris moved back to the bench with Gary Harris rejoining the starting unit. Despite playing just 17 minutes, Morris managed 12 points, only three short of Nikola Jokic who top-scored with 15 points. The Nuggets were clearly outmatched in this one and they are going to have to rethink things if they are to make this series extend beyond four games.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Coming off bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris will come off the bench for Thursday's Game 1 against the Clippers, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.

The 25-year-old enjoyed a starting role the past four games, averaging 7.0 points, 2.8 boards and 3.5 dimes over 26 minutes per contest in that span. Morris will make way in the lineup for Gary Harris, who will make his first start since dealing with an injury in the bubble.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Generates 10 points in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris totaled 10 points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists and two rebounds across 24 minutes in Sunday's 119-107 win over the Jazz.

The return of Gary Harris had an impact on Morris's production despite his role with the first unit. His output will likely diminish further as Harris gets back into the swing of things, but he will still manage around 20 minutes per game regardless of where he ends up in the rotation.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Starting Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris will start Sunday's Game 4 against the Jazz, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.

After coming off the bench for the first three games of the series, Morris will enter the lineup at one guard spot, while Torrey Craig shifts to the bench. Morris had just four points and two assists in 24 minutes when the Nuggets were blown out in Game 3 on Friday.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Fills stat sheet in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris notched 16 points (4-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six rebounds, four assists and one block in 30 minutes off the bench during Friday's loss against the Raptors.

Benefiting from the fact that Jamal Murray only played 11 minutes, Morris delivered another impressive effort. He's scored in double digits in all but one of his eight games in the Orlando bubble. The third-year floor general averaged 13.9 points during the seeding games and should be a productive player off the bench for the Nuggets come playoff time.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Coming off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris will come off the bench Saturday against the Jazz, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports.

With Jamal Murray (hamstring) back in the starting lineup, Morris will head to the bench. In his 57 appearances off the bench this season, he's averaging 8.1 points, 3.4 assists and 1.6 rebounds in 20.0 minutes.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Hits for 17 in Monday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris tallied 17 points (6-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT) along with four rebounds, four assists and a steal in 39 minutes during Monday's 121-113 overtime win over the Thunder.

Getting another start in place of Jamal Murray (hamstring), Morris put together his best scoring performance since early February. With back-to-back games coming up Wednesday and Thursday, it seems likely that Morris will retain a significant role in the Denver backcourt even if Murray is able to return to the lineup.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Solid showing in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris posted 13 points (3-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT), five assists and three rebounds in 28 minutes during Saturday's 125-105 loss to the Heat.

Morris drew the start for Jamal Murray, who was sidelined with a hamstring injury. Morris was able to be aggressive and get his teammates involved but the short-handed Nuggets couldn't pull out the victory. It was the 10th time this season that Morris posted double-digit points and at least five dimes.

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

Morris will get the start at point guard for Saturday's bubble opener against the Heat, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports.

Morris figures to be in line for a heavy workload, asJamal Murray (hamstring), Gary Harris (hip) and Will Barton (knee) will all be sidelined. He has averaged 10.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists across 32.7 minutes in eight games as a starter this season.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Available Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris (undisclosed) is available Saturday against the Heat.

Morris has exited his quarantine period and is free to play. He may see more run than usual Saturday, as Jamal Murray (hamstring) is questionable while Gary Harris (hip) and Will Barton (knee) are out.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: In bubble, under quarantine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris (undisclosed) has arrived in Orlando and is under the league's mandated quarantine period, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

Morris needs to stay in his room for 36-48 hours and pass two coronavirus tests before joining his teammates. It's unclear if he'll be available for Monday's scrimmage against the Magic.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Yet to join team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris has yet to arrive in Orlando and remains absent from the Nuggets' workouts at the Walt Disney World complex, Kendra Andrews of The Athletic reports.

Along with Morris, Gary Harris, Michael Porter, Torrey Craig and PJ Dozier have yet to join the Nuggets due to unspecified reasons, while star center Nikola Jokic (illness) -- who is believed to have fully recovered from an earlier bout with COVID-19 -- remains stuck in Serbia awaiting a flight to the United States. None of the missing players have formally opted out of the NBA season restart, so the expectation is that all will eventually arrive in Orlando. If Morris' absence lingers into next week, however, his status for the Nuggets' first game in Orlando on Aug. 1 versus the Heat could become more of a question mark.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Scores 15 to go with four dimes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris amassed 15 points (6-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, one rebound, one steal and one block in 25 minutes during Thursday's 114-112 win over the Hornets.

Morris was extremely efficient offensively while reaching double figures in scoring for the second time in the last three games. He's coming off by far his best month of the current campaign, and Morris will try to build on this performance heading into Saturday's favorable matchup versus the lowly Cavaliers.

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

Morris totaled 12 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, three rebounds and one steal in 29 minutes during Sunday's 133-118 victory over Toronto.

Morris continues to be impactful off the bench, earning himself meaningful minutes over the past two weeks. During that time, he has been a top-60 player thanks to his efficient shooting and high steal rate. The is certainly a world where he supplants Will Barton in the pecking order but until then, he is just a fringe option in standard formats.

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

Morris provided 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), six rebounds, six assists and two steals across 31 minutes Sunday in the Nuggets' 128-116 win over the Timberwolves.

Morris capitalized on the playing time he received early in the contest and ended up cutting into the minutes of Will Barton, allowing the third-year guard to churn out a quality line. In his five outings since moving back to the bench, Morris is averaging 11.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.0 rebounds and 1.6 steals in 25.2 minutes, but the scoring production in particular might be unsustainable. He's shot 55.8 percent from the floor over that five-game sample, well above his career rate (48.2 percent).

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Scores 15 points in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris totaled 15 points (7-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block in 42 minutes during Wednesday's 98-95 victory over Utah.

Morris was back in the starting lineup after Will Barton (knee) was ruled out prior to tipoff. Morris ended with a serviceable fantasy line, paying off for those who picked him up in standard leagues. Barton doesn't sound as though he is going to miss an extended period, and his return likely will send Morris back to the bench. Add to that the addition of Shabazz Napier from the Timberwolves and Morris certainly doesn't have the most appealing fantasy outlook.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Back in starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris will start Wednesday's game against Utah, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.

Morris will make his eighth start of the season as the Nuggets continue to be without Gary Harris and Shabazz Napier. Across seven other starts this season, Morris is averaging 10.3 points, 4.4 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 31.4 minutes per contest.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Minimal production Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris ended with just seven points (3-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and four assists in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 127-99 victory over the Trail Blazers.

Morris shifted back to the bench with Jamal Murray returning to action. The game was well in control early in the contest, which did allow Morris to see 23 minutes. Even in Murray's absence, Morris had been far from a must-roster player and he can now safely be returned to the waiver wire in all standard formats.

Nuggets' Monte Morris: Returns to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Trail Blazers, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.

The 24-year-old started seven of the last 10 games at point guard for the Nuggets, but Jamal Murray (ankle) is making his return to the court Tuesday. Morris is averaging 7.8 points, 1.7 rebounds and 3.4 assists over 18.7 minutes in 43 games off the bench this season.
