Marquese Chriss was a surprise in Wednesday's 3OT loss to the Nets, exploding for 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting with seven rebounds, one assist, three triples and two steals in 28 minutes.
This is the best game we've seen from Chriss since joining the Cavs. Scratch that. Make that all season. Has he finally found the right home where he can be let loose and be fantasy-relevant once again? At the very least, he's worth a speculative add on the strength of this performance.

Marquese Chriss logged 22 minutes off the Cavs' bench in Monday's 107-104 win over the Knicks and played solid basketball as he dropped 14 points (5-of-8 shooting), seven rebounds, two 3-pointers, one assist and one steal.
That's actually not bad. His line is something someone can use in 16-team leagues or deeper right now. He's worth a speculative grab just don't get too attached in case he flakes out again – something he's done in multiple times in the past.

Marquese Chriss got the starting nod for the Cavs on Saturday vs. the Pacers and posted a low-end line with seven points (3-of-7 shooting), three rebounds, two assists, one trey and one steal in 24 minutes.
The Cavs were resting Kevin Love (back-to-back), so Chriss got some extra run. He's not someone to target right now but is worth watching should the Cavs go into full tank mode down the stretch.

Marquese Chriss will start on Saturday along with Collin Sexton, David Nwaba, Larry Nance Jr. and Deng Adel.
Chriss played 22 minutes on Friday night having season-highs across the board. With Kevin Love out, Chriss should have a heavy workload once again and is a decent daily option.

Marquese Chriss logged 22 minutes on Friday night, turning in a productive Cavs debut with 13 points, eight rebounds and three 3-pointers.
Those are all season-highs by comfortable margins. Chriss is a fine gamble to take if you're in Cleveland's position, and if they keep trotting him out there for 20-plus a night it's probably going to result in some deep-league value given the stat set. We're not running to the wire just yet, and the threes are most certainly an anomaly, but this was an encouraging start to Chriss' stretch run.

Marquese Chriss (trade) is available to play in Friday's game versus the Wizards.
Chriss is available, but may not play. Either way he is not likely to see much of a role with Ante Zizic, Larry Nance Jr. and Kevin Love returning from injury.

Marquese Chriss, Brandon Knight and a protected 2019 first-round pick have been sent by the Rockets to the Cavs with Alec Burks heading to the Kings and Iman Shumpert landing in Houston.
Chriss did not have much value while the Rockets were starved for frontline support so it's hard to visualize him finding a drastic turnaround on a team with Tristan Thompson, Kevin Love and Larry Nance. Leave Chriss on the wire for now.

According to per Zach Lowe of ESPN, the Rockets will want to bolster their roster by offering a package of Marquese Chriss, Brandon Knight and future first-round picks.
Neither Chriss nor Knight has been fantasy relevant this season. Knight (knee) is not 100 percent healthy and Chriss' low basketball I.Q. and inability to avoid cheap fouls has kept him from seeing significant playing time. We recommend to temper expectations should they find themselves on new teams at the trade deadline. The Rockets may want some depth on the wing, which may impact guys like James Ennis III. They'll take whatever help they can get to challenge the Warriors, Nuggets and other powerhouses in the West.

Marquese Chriss and his agent are looking for either a way to pick up playing time with the Rockets or a trade out of Houston, per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.
It's hardly surprising, and a trade seems likely given that Chriss is basically on the bottom of the team's center depth chart. When the Rockets went out and added Kenneth Faried in the wake of Clint Capela's injury, that should've told Chriss everything he needed to know. Behind Capela, Faried, Nene and Isaiah Hartenstein, Chriss — who has looked bad in his fleeting playing time — is well off the fantasy radar, and only a deal to a dreadful team that would give him minutes could possibly make him fantasy-relevant again.

Marquese Chriss (left ankle sprain) is no longer on the Rockets' injury report.
Chriss is over his injury but has only appeared in nine games this season, averaging just 5.9 mpg in those contests. He's not a fantasy factor.

Marquese Chriss (left ankle sprain) is listed as probable for Saturday's game.
Just to be clear, the 'probable' tag means probable to be available, not probable to play as Chriss has only averaged 5.9 minutes in the nine games he's actually played. Since his arrival in Houston, Chriss has completely fallen off the fantasy radar.

Marquese Chriss (ankle) will not play on Saturday vs. the Mavs.
Since being traded by the Suns to the Rockets, Chriss has only played in 5.9 minutes per game and that’s not including the many DNPs he’s also gotten. He’s not relevant in fantasy as his low-IQ game has no place on a team fighting for playoff positioning.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Rockets have declined the fourth-year option on Marquese Chriss.
Chriss, the former top-10 pick of 2016, was traded to Houston two months ago and is already likely out of town soon. His name has been floated around in trade rumors with Minnesota in a potential Jimmy Butler trade, and if not traded he will be a free agent in the summer.

Marquese Chriss put up four points, two rebounds and a block in eight minutes on Tuesday night.
Chriss made his season debut, though he probably wouldn't have played had this game not featured extensive garbage time. Mike D'Antoni was hesitant to say that Chriss would take the backup center minutes during tonight's pregame media session but there was no harm in getting him out there once things got out of hand. He's someone to put on watch lists in deep leagues.
