Monday’s Markieff Morris reminded fantasy owners of the guy they deployed last year with 14 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers and one block in 28 minutes of work.
Morris has seen big declines in his rebounds and steals from last season to this one but delivered a solid line this Christmas. He’s been a little inconsistent this season but has dealt with some injuries as well, so look for Morris to get back to his middle-round form for the rest of the year. It also helped that the red-hot Mike Scott scuffled in this one, shooting 1-for-5 in his 15-minute stint. Look for both guys to regress, leaving more minutes open for Morris.
