  • Markieff Morris - F - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Markieff Morris expressed that he wouldn't return to the same allotment of minutes that he played for the Thunder this season but he was very complimentary of the organization.

    Morris didn't play a high total of minutes for the Thunder after being signed in late February. It looks like he may be interested in returning to the team if they would expand his role heading into next season. Otherwise, he will be looking at other opportunities that grant him more playing time.

    Markieff Morris double-doubled in the Thunder's final regular season game on Wednesday against the Bucks, scoring 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including two treys) with 10 rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes off the bench.

    Morris dealt with the mess in Washington before a neck injury pretty much killed his season. He was dealt to the Thunder and didn't do much, finishing the year with 21.9 mpg over 58 contests and value outside of the top-200 on the season.

    Markieff Morris was called upon for 24 minutes on Sunday with Steven Adams in foul trouble and ended up posting 14 points, six rebounds and two 3-pointers.

    It's the second-highest scoring game of Morris' OKC tenure, and this is his second consecutive game in double-digits after he acheived the feat just twice in the entire month of March. He might be someone to keep in mind if the Thunder get locked into a playoff spot and rest players on the season's final night, but the West is tight enough that it's not something to bank on.

    Markieff Morris scored eight points on 3-of-6 shooting while adding three rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers on Thursday.

    Morris was initially ruled out for tonight's game due to neck soreness, but played and produced a decent line in 17 minutes. His role is too small on the Thunder to have any fantasy appeal and it doesn't look like he's fully in tune with their defense either.

    Markieff Morris (neck soreness) is out for Thursday's game vs. Pacers.

    Jerami Grant should see a few extra minutes against the Pacers, while Patrick Patterson should get minutes in the teens as the backup power forward. Patterson is unlikely to have any value in this role.

    Markieff Morris (neck soreness) will not play on Wednesday against the Warriors.

    Morris left Monday's game with the injury and wasn't feeling quite right after today's pregame workout. The Thunder figure to take things slowly here given Morris' neck problems this season. Patrick Patterson will return to the backup power forward role but there isn't any fantasy value to be had at this spot.

    Markieff Morris (neck soreness) is questionable to play on Wednesday against the Warriors.

    Morris was limited to eight minutes on Monday before being pulled with the neck issue. It's concerning because it was a neck injury that sidelined him for multiple months to end his Wizards tenure, and hopefully this is just a minor ailment. Patrick Patterson will take his place in the rotation for as long as he's out.

    Markieff Morris (neck soreness) is doubtful to return to Monday's game.

  • Markieff Morris - F - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Markieff Morris collected four points and 10 rebounds in 23 minutes on Thursday night.

    Morris is a nice fit with the Thunder but it's just not happening for fantasy purposes. He's only a top-225 guy over the last couple of weeks and can be cut loose in any leagues with fewer than 16 teams — if you were still holding on. Morris also committed the loose-ball foul that allowed Portland to send this to overtime, but OKC prevailed so he won't catch any heat.

    Markieff Morris scored 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting with three rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer on Saturday.

    Morris came off the bench in tonight's matchup but was able to log 22 minutes compared to the 19 minutes he logged when he started against the Sixers in their last game. He's only worth a look in deep leagues for now until he stays consistent with his production for the Thunder.

  • Paul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Paul George (right shoulder soreness) has been ruled out for Saturday’s game vs. the Spurs.

    This will be the second game George will miss with the shoulder issue and we hope he’ll have a quick recovery as owners will need his top-10 game in the fantasy playoffs. Dennis Schroder looks to gain the most from this news while Markieff Morris should draw another start.

    Markieff Morris scored 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting with four rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer on Thursday.

    Morris started in place of Paul George (shoulder soreness) but he only logged 19 minutes which means we can safely leave him on the wire in standard leagues.

    Markieff Morris will start in place of Paul George (shoulder soreness) on Thursday night against the Sixers.

    The NBA's marquee matchup of the night is missing some serious starpower but it should be a fun game either way. Morris hasn't made much of an impact with OKC just yet but he's likely still shaking off some rust after a month on the shelf with a neck injury. He's only a deep-league option for now but it wouldn't be too surprising if he popped with top-150 stretches over the rest of the season.

    Markieff Morris made his Thunder debut in Friday's win over the Jazz, logging 17 minutes but only producing two assists and one steal.

    There was a definite feeling-out vibe here as Morris only took one shot. He'll obviously be more active than this going forward and is worth picking up in 14-team leagues. Morris' workload should increase as he gets familiar with his new team and back in shape following a long layoff because of a neck injury.

  • Markieff Morris - F - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Markieff Morris (neck) was a "full go" in Thursday's practice and says he's been cleared to play for the last two weeks.

    Morris added that he's been playing 5-on-5, so he should be ready to make his Thunder debut relatively quickly. He'll be playing behind Jerami Grant at the four spot and may work into some small-ball lineups, but we'll need a better look at his fit with the team before calling him an add in 12-team formats. As of now he's only a low-upside flier, though it wouldn't be a stunner if he did carve out top-150 value.
