Will Barton put up 11 points (3-of-9 FG), four assists, two rebounds and one 3-pointer against the Raptors on Sunday.
Barton is still struggling to rediscover his mid-round form that he had earlier this season. You probably want to ride this out, but with all of the talent around him, Barton will not be able to walk into mid-round value without picking up his level play. Monte Morris was strong off the bench, accounting for 12 points, four assists, three rebounds, two 3-pointers and one steal. He's just a streaming option, but his showing in 29 minutes speaks to the competition that is surrounding Barton.

Monte Morris put up 13 points with six rebounds and six assists in 31 minutes in a win over the Wolves on Sunday.
Morris shot 6-of-10 from the field and added two steals to the stat sheet. He has been top-100 over the past month due to Jamal Murray's injury, but Murray is back so Morris returns to his role as deep-league assists specialist. Murray put up 19 points with six dimes on 8-of-14 shooting. Murray should hover around top-50 value to close out the campaign.

Jamal Murray had a team-high 26 points on Monday while adding two rebounds, six assists, a steal and two triples.
Murray did well across the board, but the efficiency wasn't quite there. Monte Morris (22 minutes, 16 points with four dimes, a steal and two triples) was hot off the bench, but that negated Gary Harris's (25 minutes, eight points, two rebounds, two assists and two triples) value more than Murray's. Murray is the clear-cut own here and Harris and Morris are streaming level players.

Monte Morris did a bit of everything on Wednesday night, finishing with a line of 15 points (7-12 FG, 1-4 3PT), two rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block.
Morris has been a lower tier point guard on the season, but saw 42 minutes tonight, thanks to the Nuggets only using seven men. The addition of Shabazz Napier will add a wrinkle into his usage.

Jamal Murray (left ankle sprain) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Blazers.
Murray has missed 10 games due to the ankle, but the questionable tag indicates that he's getting closer to a return. Keep an eye on his status on Tuesday and be ready to drop Monte Morris once Murray shows that he's healthy.

Monte Morris managed 18 points (8-for-15 FG), seven rebounds, seven assists, a steal, two 3-pointers and zero turnovers in 39 minutes on Sunday afternoon.
Morris has been a top-140 guy over the last two weeks, and is the rare point guard that's actually better in 9-cat thanks to minimal turnovers, but that will surely be moving up after this great showing. He's a fine low-end add in 12-team leagues, especially if you need assists, while Jamal Murray is out.

Monte Morris moved back into the starting lineup on Friday and delivered 14 points in 29 minutes.
That's nice scoring but Morris only contributed one assist, which really takes the wind from his fantasy sails. Expect more of the usual from Morris in the next one, as he remains a low-end PG option for as long as Jamal Murray is out. He's a rare guard in that he posts low turnovers and strong efficiency, which helps him fit into non-traditional builds.

Jamal Murray will miss Thursday's game against the Jazz as he continues to work his way back from a left ankle sprain.
Thursday will mark Murray's eighth straight absence and head coach Michael Malone has been reluctant to give a timetable for his return. Monte Morris and Malik Beasley will continue to see additional minutes while Michael Porter Jr. has taken advantage of the additional opportunity with all of the injuries that the Nuggets are currently dealing with.

Monte Morris came off the bench for the third straight game but still put up good numbers in 34 minutes including nine points (3-of-8 shooting), five rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers vs. the Grizzlies on Tuesday.
Morris is still worth starting in standard leagues while Jamal Murray (left ankle sprain) is out, even if he's coming off the bench. He specializes in assist-to-turnover ratio and has had connected at a high field goal percentage for a guard for most of his career.
January 26, 2020, 6:26 pmMonte MorrisPG, Denver Nuggets
Monte Morris scored 17 points on 7-of-15 shooting (including three treys) with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block over 35 minutes in Sunday's win over the Rockets.
Morris profiles well in standard leagues and especially nine-cat formats while Jamal Murray is out. He shouldn't be floating around on too many wires right now.

Jerami Grant chipped in five defensive stats on Wednesday, putting together a line of 17 points (7-17 FG), seven rebounds, an assist, three steals and two blocks.
Grant has been able to produce strong outings with Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) on the sidelines. The Nuggets must have been focused on defense at practice this week because Monte Morris also swiped three steals, and Will Barton nabbed two steals and a block to go with his six assists.

Monte Morris dished out eight assists in a 107-100 victory on over the Wolves on Monday, adding eight points (4-fo4-12 FGs), four rebounds and a steal in 36 minutes as he started for the third straight game.
Morris hasn't rediscovered last season's magic in his three starts for the injured Jamal Murray (left ankle sprain). He's still got the incredible assist-to-turnover ratio, but the field goal percentage has fallen off a cliff lately. He's a fine play for assists and low turnovers until Murray returns.

Monte Morris did not play well against the Pacers on Sunday as he put up two points and five assists on 1-of-7 shooting.
Morris was supposed to be a prime streaming option, but he has not played well in his last two started with Jamal Murray (ankle) out. He will likely still have another couple of games to improve until Murray returns, but he will not hold any long-term value aside from assists in deep leagues.
January 17, 2020, 2:39 amMonte MorrisPG, Denver Nuggets
Monte Morris had a quiet night on Thursday, scoring 11 points on 3-of-9 shooting to go with three rebounds, three assists and a triple.
Morris got the starting nod with Jamal Murray (ankle) sitting and while he didn't put up a spectacular line, he's still worth streaming if Murray misses more time.
January 16, 2020, 7:43 pmJamal MurrayPG, Denver Nuggets
Tests on Jamal Murray's sprained ankle came back negative, but the guard is expected to be out multiple games.
With Murray out for a while, it makes Monte Morris and to a lesser degree, Malik Beasley sensible adds for some short-term value.
