    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Markieff Morris scored 22 points on 7-of-10 shooting with three 3-pointers in 20 minutes on Saturday.

    Morris has back-to-back 20-point games but he's shooting 66.7 percent during that time and he won't keep that up. He played more minutes than Christian Wood (10 points with seven rebounds in 16 minutes) but for now Morris is just a late-round option with the crowded front court in Detroit.

    SF, Detroit Pistons

    Sviatoslav Mykahiliuk came off the bench to drop 21 points (6-of-9 FG, 5-of-8 from deep) and rack up five assists to go with it on Wednesday night

    Mykahiliuk has been on a bit of a hot streak and is a worthy streaming option for those in need of 3-pointers. Fellow second stringer Markieff Morris also came off the bench to score 23 points and pick up 2 boards, two assists, two steals, a block and three 3-pointers of his own.

    Markieff Morris (sprained left foot) is available to play during Saturday's game versus the Cavs.

    Morris' minutes may be limited in his first game back, but he ix expected to take on an expanded role with Blake Griffin done for the year. Sekou Doumbouya and Morris may chop up the minutes and it may be worth taking the wait and see approach before rushing to the wire.

    Markieff Morris (sprained left foot) is questionable for Saturday's game.

    Morris has missed Detroit's last seven games but it does sound like he's getting closer to returning. He's someone to keep in mind for later with Blake Griffin out and Andre Drummond on the block. If Dwane Casey tabs Morris as a full-time starter, he could easily producer top-150 numbers.

    Markieff Morris will not play against the Cavs on Thursday as he continues to work his way back from a sprained left foot.

    With Blake Griffin likely done for the season and rumors swirling around Andre Drummond, the Pistons could have some emerging fantasy studs in their frontcourt. Sekou Doumbouya and Christian Wood are worth a look while Morris could produce standard league value if given the opportunity.

  • Andre Drummond
    C, Detroit Pistons

    Marc Stein of The New York Times said that a source briefed on the Pistons situation expressed confidence that Andre Drummond will be moved before the February trade deadline.

    The Pistons, who lost Blake Griffin (knee) presumably for the season after undergoing surgery on his knee earlier on Tuesday, may be without both of their All-Star frontcourt bigs by next month. Christian Wood and Sekou Doumbouya should be picked up where they are available while Markieff Morris is trending up as well.

  • Blake Griffin
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Per Shams Charania of The Athletic, Blake Griffin underwent knee surgery on Tuesday and will face an extended rehab process.

    This news officially puts the nail in the coffin on what has been a nightmare season for the All-Star big man. Regularly going around pick-50 in drafts, Griffin never truly looked healthy and will wind up finishing just inside the top-300 on a per-game basis in 9-cat leagues. The Pistons will move forward with Christian Wood, Sekou Doumbouya and Markeiff Morris (foot) to pick up the slack at PF. If the former two are still hanging around on the waiver wire, run and grab them.

    Markieff Morris (sprained left foot) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

    Morris last played on December 26, leaving Christian Wood and Sekou Doumbouya in important roles. He's not a major factor in fantasy anyway.

    Markieff Morris (sprained left foot) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Lakers.

    With Morris out Christian Wood should continue to see decent run of off the bench, while Sekou Doumbouya starts at the four. Both are worth fliers in speculation of Andre Drummond being traded and will continue to put up decent numbers with Morris out.

    Markieff Morris will remain out for the Pistons on Saturday as he recovers from a sprained left foot.

    Kieff has been gone for a while now and is not worth the hold. Look for other options elsewhere.

    Markieff Morris will not play vs. the Clippers on Thursday, still sidelined with a left foot sprain.

    Morris can be dropped in 20-team leagues, given the length of his absence. He should see some low-end value when he returns, so keep him on your watch lists.

    Markieff Morris (sprained left foot) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Jazz.

    Monday is a great time to throw Christian Wood into your lineup as Blake Griffin (left knee soreness) is doubtful as well. As for Morris, he has his moments as a scorer and 3-point specialist but is largely a deep-league option when he is healthy.

    Markieff Morris will miss Saturday's tilt vs. the Spurs with a sprained left foot.

    Morris hurt his foot on Monday, playing just nine minutes in that game. With Morris on the sidelines, expect to see more of Christian Wood and possibly a little bit more of Thon Maker as well.

  • Blake Griffin
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Blake Griffin (flu) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Sixers.

    Griffin has missed the last two games with an illness and knee soreness and Markieff Morris has performed well in his absence. It's a tough matchup, but Morris would be a solid DFS if starting in his hometown.

    Markieff Morris scored 23 points on Saturday, shooting 8-of-19 from the field and 7-of-12 from deep in 37 minutes.

    Morris also chipped in a surprising six assists and had increased usage with Blake Griffin (illness) out on Saturday. Morris has late-round value when Griffin is out and is a streamer for points and threes when Griffin is in the lineup.
