Monte Morris explodes for 19 off the bench

Monte Morris came off the bench once again on Wednesday night as he finished with 19 points, three assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 26 minutes. Morris went 8-for-13 from the field overall and 3-for-5 from three.

Fantasy Impact

Morris has now had seven games in which he's finished in double-figures over his last 10 games and with the Nuggets mostly locked into the second seed, they might rest their starters which would help his value for the remainder of the season.

Monte Morris scores 16 off the bench

Monte Morris came off the bench and was one of the only Nuggets' players that looked like they wanted to play last night. In 27 minutes, Morris finished with 16 points, four assists, and three rebounds while shooting 5-for-9 from the field and 1-for-3 from three.

Fantasy Impact

Morris has scored in double-figures in four out of his past five games but in the three games he's played against OKC on the year, he's only averaging 7.3 a game. He has a tough matchup against a team that has played him well thus far this year so its a safe bet to leave him on your bench.

Monte Morris scores 12 in garbage time minutes

Monte Morris got some extended minutes on Sunday as the Nuggets were getting blown out by the Pacers. In 23 minutes, Morris finished with 12 points, one rebound, and one assist while going 6-for-13 from the floor.

Fantasy Impact

Coach Mike Malone has discussed resting his starters before the playoffs which bodes well for Morris' value as if they do so, he'd be inserted into the starting point guard role instantly. He's averaging nearly 10 points a game over his last 10 games and is a solid option for desperate teams on Tuesday night against the Pistons.

Monte Morris contributes 16 points in Tuesday win

Monte Morris put in 16 points, six dimes, five rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes of action off the bench on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Morris seems to be back in the saddle, shooting 69 percent from the field and averaging 16.5 points over the past couple of games. He's been seeing significantly more playing time over this span so if he can keep that up he's worth an add in most formats.

Monte Morris bounces back with 12 points

Monte Morris had a nice game off the bench on Sunday as he finished with 12 points, five assists, two steals, one rebound, and one block in 22 minutes. Morris was efficient as usual as he went 5-for-8 from the field and 2-for-3 from three.

Fantasy Impact

Morris looks like he's not going anywhere despite the return of Isaiah Thomas. They were both on the floor at the same time for a lot of the game which is a good sign for Morris owners. He's an efficient scorer which makes him that much better of a fantasy option.
