February 14, 2019, 12:58 amMonte Morris - G - Denver Nuggets
Monte Morris scored 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes off the bench on Wednesday against the Kings.
With Isaiah Thomas (13 minutes) back it's going to be even harder for Morris to keep his head above water and owners in standard leagues can move on for greener pastures.
February 12, 2019, 12:25 amMonte Morris - G - Denver Nuggets
Monte Morris finished Monday's 103-87 win with 17 points (7-for-11 shooting), three rebounds, seven assists, a steal and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Heat.
Impressively, Morris didn't commit a single turnover tonight as he continues to threaten the league's all-time assist-to-turnover ratio. He's leading all qualified players with a 6.31 mark and is committing 0.6 turnovers a night despite getting 24.6 mpg as a pure point guard. He's been a gem for 9-cat owners and we're not all that worried about Isaiah Thomas cramping his style — at least at first.
February 8, 2019, 4:09 pmIsaiah Thomas - G - Denver Nuggets
Nuggets’ beat writer Harrison Wind reported that Isaiah Thomas is closing in on a return which according to league sources, may be as early as next week.
There haven’t been many updates on Thomas all season long but it appears his rehab in the G-League went well and barring any setbacks, should be back in the rotation fairly soon. With Jamal Murray starting and coach favorite Monte Morris getting significant minutes, it remains to be seen just how IT3 will fit, and how many minutes he’ll get. He’ll have some rust to shake off first, so it might be a few weeks until we see how those questions are answered.

Monte Morris scored 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting with two triples, two rebounds, three assists and a steal against the Pistons on Monday.
Morris has flourished with Jamal Murray (sprained left ankle) and should be owned until further notice. The team has not given a direct timetable for Murray's return which means Morris will be running the show for a high-octane offense for the time being.
February 3, 2019, 1:06 amMonte Morris - G - Denver Nuggets
Monte Morris scored 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds, 10 assists and one steal over 41 minutes in Saturday's road win over the Wolves.
Morris will be worth starting as long as Jamal Murray (ankle) is out, and the most recent news is that Murray is targeting the upcoming road trip for his return. Morris has jumped up into a top-45 position or better among reality point guards in the Association.
February 1, 2019, 8:46 pmJamal Murray - G - Denver Nuggets
Coach Mike Malone said he was concerned about Jamal Murray’s left ankle sprain and that he’s hopeful Murray will make it back for the Nuggets’ upcoming road trip.
Murray has already missed three straight games with the ankle sprain and that means you can crank up Monte Morris for another game at least.

Monte Morris put up a solid performance in a start on Wednesday with 20 points, seven rebounds and seven assists on 8-of-12 shooting in a win over the Pelicans.
He played a team-high 40 minutes and added three 3-pointers and two steals to the box score. He has been fantasy relevant all season long as he has been putting up steady late-round value even when the team is healthy. His value is obviously boosted while Jamal Murray is out, but he is worth holding on to even when Murray returns.
January 30, 2019, 7:32 pmMonte Morris - G - Denver Nuggets
Monte Morris will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.
He'll be replacing Torrey Craig for this one. Morris has been a gem for 9-cat owners this season, averaging just 0.7 turnovers per game from the point guard position in 24.0 mpg. We're not worried about Isaiah Thomas dinging Morris too much upon his return, and even so that's multiple weeks away. Morris will move back to the bench when Jamal Murray (sprained ankle) returns as the Nuggets are close to full strength.

January 27, 2019, 12:03 amMonte Morris - G - Denver Nuggets
Monte Morris totaled 10 points, three assists and only one turnover in 27 minutes of work on Saturday night.
Morris got extra playing time with Jamal Murray (ankle) out but didn't produce a big line. It's a mild disappointment for anyone who streamed him tonight but Morris remains one of the best guard options around for turnover-conscious fantasy players out there. He's averaging 0.7 TOs in 24.0 mpg this year.
January 18, 2019, 7:22 pmIsaiah Thomas - G - Denver Nuggets
The Nuggets are hopeful that guard Isaiah Thomas (hip) will be able to make his return prior to mid-February’s All Star Break.
This is the first update we’ve seen in a long time for IT3, so it looks like he may actually be back this year. It’s anyone’s guess how he’ll play after being hurt all year and how he’ll fit in the backcourt with Jamal Murray and Monte Morris. There’s no guarantee Thomas will be a consistently productive player with so much depth in Denver but if you have an open IR spot, it can’t hurt to stash him.
January 11, 2019, 3:46 pmGary Harris - G - Denver Nuggets
Gary Harris (left hamstring tightness) is questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Suns.
Harris has missed 15 games this season already with various ailments which has only added to his reputation as an injury prone player. All the missed games has disrupted his flow and given disappointing returns of top-90 in 9-cat. Hopefully, he’ll be able to get his game on track. Malik Beasley is worth a look if Harris can’t go as he’s been the main beneficiary, while Monte Morris should also get a few more minutes of run.

Monte Morris scored 21 points on 9-of-13 shooting with a 3-pointer, three rebounds, five assists and two steals on Monday.
Morris came in and hit his first five shots and was one of the hottest players for the Nuggets tonight. It's still hard to see him maintaining standard league value with the Nuggets at full strength but if you still have him on your roster you had four more games this week so it might be worth holding to see if he can continue his run.
January 1, 2019, 11:59 pmMonte Morris - G - Denver Nuggets
Monte Morris scored five points on 2-of-8 shooting with three rebounds, four assists and one trey in 23 minutes off the bench on Tuesday against the Knicks.
The Nuggets have five games next week so that gives owners some rationale to hang on, but the end is basically here for Morris' fantasy value.
December 30, 2018, 12:10 amMonte Morris - G - Denver Nuggets
Monte Morris scored five points on 1-of-6 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes off the bench in Saturday's win over the Suns.
Paul Millsap returned and played just 14 minutes, so it's not like the rotation was ultra-impacted by returns, but it's going to be soon. This gives fantasy GMs an easy way to cut bait after a nice run.
