Marcus Morris posted 15 points, nine rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and three threes in Saturday's loss to the Hornets.
Fantasy owners would love to see this type of all-around game every night but the increased minutes was a direct result of Gordon Hayward's (concussion protocol) absence tonight. He's been hovering outside the top-100 and is not a must-own player unless you have a streaming spot open on your roster.

Marcus Morris finished Wednesday's loss to the Sixers with four points on 2-of-9 shooting, though he did manage nine rebounds, three assists and a block.
Morris couldn't buy a bucket and if he's even average tonight we're having a different conversation about this game entirely. He's just outside the top-100 over the last couple of weeks and isn't necessarily a must-own if your waiver wire holds one of the many hot pickups that emerges as we get into shutdown season.

Marcus Morris posted 19 points, 11 rebounds, a steal, two blocks and two threes in Saturday's home win.
Morris took a really dumb shot in the final minute with the Hawks pressing for a comeback, but ultimately it didn't matter and fantasy owners will love the line today, 6-for-14 from the field excepted. With Gordon Hayward sustaining a head injury today, Morris should have more breathing room for as long as GH is out. He belongs in all lineups.

Marcus Morris double-doubled against the Kings on Thursday with 21 points and 13 rebounds to go with two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.
He went 7-for-15 from the floor and 4-for-5 at the line. Morris added some extra rebounding tonight, but everything else was about in line for what he's been doing all season. On the year he's averaging 14.2 points and 2.0 3s on .462 shooting and there's no reason to believe that his production will vary much from that.

Jayson Tatum missed all five of his 3-point attempts but still finished Friday’s defeat of the visiting Wizards with 10 points, eight rebounds, three assists, five steals and four turnovers.
Tatum has been affected by the Celtics’ recent struggles, bringing back 9-cat value outside the top-100 over the last two weeks so hopefully he and the team will get it figured out soon. Marcus Morris added 17 points, three 3s, nine boards and a block. Both should be owned in standard leagues.

Marcus Morris had a decent night despite losing big to the Raptors on Tuesday, putting up 17 points in 26 minutes.
He also had six rebounds for the fourth straight game and was one of the only Celtics to meet expectations tonight. Morris is still hanging around top-100 value on the season.

Marcus Morris (knee) will play in Thursday's matchup vs. the Lakers.
Morris missed Tuesday's game vs. the Cavs along with Kyrie Irving and both of them will be returning to the lineup on Thursday vs. the Lakers. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown will get their workload slightly diminished and Morris will move back into his top-75 producing role.

The Celtics announced that Marcus Morris will miss tonight’s game against the Cavs due to a sore knee.
In addition to Morris, the Celtics will be without Kyrie Irving and Aron Baynes as the team is likely giving a day off to their main guys. Morris has been steadily returning top-75 value for the season but owners should expect the occasional “rest” day. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown should carry the offensive burden tonight while Terry Rozier will get the spot start.

Marcus Morris tallied 19 points, seven rebounds, an assist and two threes in Sunday's win over the Celtics.
Morris also shot a solid 8-for-14 from the field. He's now got 15 or more in each of his last four and looks to be well past his mid-January dip. Make sure he's back in all lineups as a reliable middle-round option.

Marcus Morris scored 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting and added four 3s, five boards, two steals and no turnovers in Friday’s defeat of the Knicks.
After struggling a bit last week, Morris has turned it up and is back to returning top-75 9-cat value. Jayson Tatum chipped in 13 points, a trey, five rebounds and a block in the win.

Marcus Morris scored 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting with three triples, six boards, a dime, a steal and two swats on Thursday.
Morris has been playing well ever since his return to action and his move to the starting lineup has done wonders for both himself and the team. He shouldn't be on any waivers.

Marcus Morris put up 22 points on 6-of-8 shooting on eight rebounds in 23 minutes in a 135-108 win over the Pacers on Wednesday.
He was the best player for the Celtics in this one and has been surprisingly solid for them all season long. He is a steady middle-round value and is inside the top-40 over the past two weeks. Morris’ froncourt mate Al Horford had six points with eight assists in 18 minutes.

Marcus Morris returned to action on Monday and scored 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting with three 3-pointers, a rebound, an assist and two steals.
Morris (neck strain) came back and didn't miss a beat as he knocked down shots from distance and got off the floor after 26 minutes due to the Celtics blowing the Nets out of the water.

Marcus Morris (neck strain) will play against the Nets on Monday.
Morris missed Friday's game but returns after just one game on the sidelines. He'll likely bump Jaylen Brown back to the bench and eat into Gordon Hayward's productivity as well. Of the two, only Hayward is worth sticking with in 12-team leagues, but Morris has captured a starting role this season and is the best fantasy option of the three.

Marcus Morris (neck strain) is listed as probable ahead of Monday's game with the Nets.
Morris ended up missing Friday's game after getting hurt on Wednesday but went through a full practice yesterday, so all signs point to him suiting up tonight. Get ready to plug him back into lineups.
