Marcus Morris was atrocious on Sunday afternoon, going 0-for-9 from the field and finishing with one point, six rebounds and a steal in 29 minutes.
Morris has really had his issues since joining the Clippers and is sitting well outside the top-200 in the last two weeks. He's a drop if you've been holding on, as its clear now more than ever that he's just a volume scorer who struggles to stay in rhythm unless he's calling the shots. Patrick Beverley was equally disappointing with two points, four rebounds and a steal in 26 minutes and is even worse than Morris over the last two weeks, sitting outside the top-250. The most talkative Clippers certainly didn't back themselves up today.

Montrezl Harrell led the Clippers bigs on Thursday with 19 points and 10 rebounds to go with two blocks.
Harrell crushed the small-ball Rockets tonight in only 22 minutes of action. JaMychal Green (24 minutes, 11 points, six boards, two dimes and two triples) and Marcus Morris (22 minutes, 11 points, two rebounds, one assist, one block and three triples) also displayed their ability to adapt and defend Houston's attack on offense and also came up big on the perimeter with some big triples. The Clippers frontcourt can destroy you at all angles and these three players all having solid nights is a taste of their depth and skill.

Marcus Morris had another quiet game, chipping in eight points on 4-of-9 shooting, five rebounds, one assist and one block in 30 minutes as the Clippers beat the Thunder on Tuesday.
This is just a reminder that Morris is no longer worth holding onto or adding in a standard-sized league, even if he has an occasional game that looks like one from his New York stint. He's too far down the list of offensive options in Los Angeles to contribute enough consistently.

Marcus Morris put together a respectable performance on Wednesday, finishing with 18 points (6-14 FG, 4-8 3PT), five rebounds, three assists and a block in 30 minutes.
Morris had his best game with the Clippers so far, but it's hard to know what the production will be when Paul George is back to full strength. His value will be much clearer when the minutes distribution shakes out, but having them both in the starting lineup tonight is promising.

Marcus Morris put up six points on 3-of-9 shooting in Saturday's home loss.
Morris started and played 32 minutes, so there really isn't any excuse for this performance. He might be worth hanging onto as a low-end option for as long as Paul George is out but it's hard to envision him maintaining the volume he needs for middle-round value when the Clippers get to full health.

Paul George was limited to 15 minutes and missed the second half of Thursday's tough loss to the Celtics due to a strained left hamstring, scoring just four points on seven shots before his premature exit.
George has had a tough time staying healthy this season and it's just more reason to be nervous about guys coming into the year with injury issues. Also, it's another reason to keep Marcus Morris on the radar while George deals with nagging issues. Morris was forced into 42 minutes for his 10 points, eight boards, two blocks and two timely 3-pointers. We'll have to reassess George's status after the All-Star break.

Marcus Morris dropped 13 points (3-of-6 3PT) and had five rebounds in Tuesday's road defeat to the Sixers.
He started alongside both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, which we were curious about after Morris's Leonard-less debut. Morris shot the ball at a decent clip overall, going 5-for-12 from the field. Look for him to get plenty of playing time with his new team and maintain his fantasy value, which sits at top-75 on the season.

Marcus Morris scored 10 points on 5-of-12 shooting in 22 minutes in his Clippers debut on Sunday in a win over the Cavs.
Morris started, but it will be interesting to see if he moves to the bench once Kawhi Leonard returns to the rotation. His value will surely take a hit since the Clippers are stacked, but he is still worth holding until we see exactly what his role will be. Be patient with Morris.

Marcus Morris will be available to make his Clippers' debut on Sunday vs. the Cavs.
Morris was acquired from the Knicks on the day of the trade deadline and he's set to be a key piece of the Clippers' rotation. However, his value does take a hit due to playing alongside Kawhi Leonard and Paul George so temper your expectations.

RJ Barrett scored 12 points in 18 minutes off the bench on Thursday as he made his return from a sprained right ankle.
Barrett came off the bench and at least put up some points in his restricted action. Reggie Bullock has been starting for the last few games but hasn't taken advantage of Barrett's absence. He matched Barrett's 12 points in this game. Now that Marcus Morris has been traded out to the opposite coast, we might see more Barrett down the stretch.

The Knicks have traded Marcus Morris to the Clippers in a package led by Moe Harkless, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.
The Clippers make out great in their pursuit of a championship this season, adding another versatile forward who is a gritty defender. Morris value takes a massive hit with the Clippers next to Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

According to Brad Turner of the LA Times, the Lakers and Clippers are among the teams interested in Marcus Morris.
Marcus Morris has been in the midst of trade rumors for some time now. Turner went on to say, "Knicks interested in Kyle Kuzma; would need Danny Green's contract to make it work. Knicks would want to move Green to another team. Clippers willing to part with Mo Harkless, but like Landry Shamet, who Knicks want." It remains to be seen if a deal is imminent as the Knicks have previously expressed interest in keeping Morris beyond this season. Trade season is in full swing so continue to monitor the news as we are less than 24 hours away from the official trade deadline.

If something were to materialize on this front, one would think that Marcus Morris must be involved, with Frank Ntilikina and Bobby Portis being potential players going to the Lakers as well. There is sure to be a lot of interest in Marcus Morris from contending teams.
