Morris tallied 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 FT), six assists, three steals and two rebounds in 21 minutes during Friday's 130-104 loss to the Rockets.
Morris was recalled from the G-League with Emmanuel Mudiay now residing in New York. With the game all but gone by half-time, Morris was able to see the floor for a career-high 21 minutes. He looked good out there, shooting the ball well and also chipping in with six assists and three steals. He will likely be sent back down to the G-League once Devin Harris joins the team and is not worth owning anywhere. Harris does have a habit of picking up injuries from time-to-time so Morris is a chance to see some more court-time before the season ends.

The second-rounder out of Iowa State hasn't been a factor at the NBA level this season, but he'll join the Nuggets on Wednesday and will likely practice with the team over the next two days prior to Friday's game in Houston.
The rookie out of Iowa State had spent the last week with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the G-League, but he'll return to Denver to log some practices with the NBA club. While Morris was one of the most efficient point guards in the nation last season, he hasn't been a part of the Nuggets' rotation and has logged only three total NBA minutes on the season.
Morris was assigned to the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Wednesday.
The Nuggets recalled Morris ahead of Tuesday's game against the Pistons, with the rookie making his NBA debut in the 103-84 victory and logging three minutes. Third in the pecking order at point guard behind Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay, Morris seems unlikely to enter head coach Michael Malone's rotation this season, barring an injury to one of the latter two players.
