Monte Morris does little in starting role in Sunday's loss to the Pacers

Monte Morris managed two points (1-7 FG, 0-2 3PT, five assists, two rebounds and one steal across 28 minutes in Sunday's 115-107 loss to the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact

Morris should continue to start at the point with Jamal Murray (ankle) sidelined multiple games. Despite averaging 27.5 minutes in two spot starts, Morris hasn't capitalized on his opportunity. He is averaging 6.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.5 triple during that stretch. The 24-year old is more of a deep-league flyer with Murray expected back soon. Morris will look to turn things around in Monday's tilt against the Timberwolves.

Monte Morris ineffective in relief of Jamal Murray on Wednesday

Monte Morris stalled with four points (1-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists and one rebound in 24 minutes versus Charlotte.

Fantasy Impact

Morris slightly resembled Murray with his assist total on Wednesday night, but was a far cry from him in the scoring department. Morris only connected with one attempt from the floor, which was a three. Even though Morris wasn't expected to see much time, four points over 24 minutes is certainly disappointing for a player who's shown scoring burst in the past.

Monte Morris serves as a silver lining in ugly loss

Monte Morris cooked with 18 points (8-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists, three rebounds and three steals in a losing effort in Houston.

Fantasy Impact

Morris felt right at home inside the Toyota Center on Tuesday against the Rockets. His 18 points were three times his average output over the last ten games (5.9). Eagle-eyed owners could have seen value in him coming into the contest given injury concerns surrounding members of the starting five. Any time a player averages nearly a point-per-minute, they're likely to turn some heads. Morris may be in for more minutes and potentially higher ownership.

Monte Morris dishes out seven assists in Thursday's win

Monte Morris compiled 11 points (4-8 FG 1-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), seven assists, two steals and one rebound across 20 minutes in Thursday's 114-99 victory over Portland.

Fantasy Impact

With Jamal Murray dealing with abdomen injury, Morris played 20 minutes and dished out seven assists in Thursday's loss. He is averaging 7.3 points, 1.7 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 0.6 steals across 23 games this year. Morris only has fantasy value if Jamal Murray is sidelined. The Nuggets next scheduled game is Saturday, home against the Thunder.

Monte Morris solid off the bench on Thursday

Monte Morris finished with 10 points (4-for-11 FG, 1-for-2 3Pt, 1-for-2 FT), seven assists, three rebounds, and a steal in 19 minutes of action on Thursday in a win against the Nets.

Fantasy Impact

Morris has a knack for doing a little bit of everything for the Nuggets off the bench and rarely turns the ball over. He is a good guy to have at the end of your bench in deep leagues, especially if you need some help with assists.
