Morris grabbed a double-double with 19 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 44 minutes of action Friday against the Blazers.

Morris is now averaging 13.6 points, 9.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.8 three-pointers made over the last five games. He's never been known to be a rebounder, but his performance of late is certainly drawing attention. He may not be the better of the two brothers, but Marcus is certainly producing enough to be owned in standard leagues at this point.

Morris filled the box score in Sunday's win over the Mavericks. In 36 minutes, he had 11 points (4-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, seven assists and three steals.

Despite shooting 1-for-11 from the floor March 19, Morris has been on a hot streak as of late. He got off to a slow start in March, but has 11 or more points in four of his past five games and now has double-digit rebounds in three straight appearances.

Morris started again on Friday with Brandon Knight (ankle) out. He finished the game with 18 points (7-18 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists.

With Knight out, P.J. Tucker slid over to shooting guard and Morris was able to start at small forward. He's a tough player to own, though, given how inconsistent he's been. Prior to Friday's game, he had three straight games with eight or fewer points and he's shooting just 29.4 percent from the floor in March.

Morris started at small forward and P.J. Tucker moved to shooting guard with Brandan Knight out with a sprained ankle. Morris scored eight points (3-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt) with nine rebounds, five assists and one block in 30 minutes against the Timberwolves.

Morris has been inconsistent all season, making him a difficult player to own, even in 12 team leagues.

Morris will start Wednesday's contest versus the Timberwolves, the Suns' official site reports.

Because Brandon Knight is sidelined with a left ankle sprain, coach Jeff Hornacek will slide P.J. Tucker to shooting guard, while Morris takes on the three. In 19 nods this season, Morris has averaged 10 points (on 41 percent shooting), 3.9 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.4 three-pointers in 26 minutes.

Coach Jeff Hornacek said the plan is for Morris to start Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves, Craig Grialou of Arizona Sports reports.

With Brandon Knight (ankle) out, Hornacek will experiment with a bit of an unconventional lineup. Assuming the rest of the starting five remains the same, P.J. Tucker would slid down to shooting guard, while Morris would join his brother, Markieff, and Alex Len up front. Hornacek said he wants to "see if we can get some size on Minnesota."

Morris provided 19 points (9-21 FG, 1-9 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists, and four steals in 41 minutes as a starter in the overtime win over the Nets on Friday.

Morris joined his twin brother Markieff (who also had 19 points) in the starting lineup because P.J. Tucker was being disciplined for missing the bus to the morning's shootaround. He has gone 3-of-19 (15.8 percent) from 3-point land in his last three games. Morris should return to reserve duty Saturday against the Cavaliers.

Morris will start in Friday's game against the Nets.

This move is expected to be temporary as normal starter P.J. Tucker is being punished for missing the bus to Friday's shootaround. Although, Morris has a chance to make his case for more playing time with Friday's opportunity in the starting five.

Morris scored a career-high 34 points (11-17 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 7-8 FT) Friday in a win over the Jazz, capping off a double-double with 12 rebounds in 33 minutes off the bench.

This was certainly a nice game for Morris, who has spent most of the season coming off the bench, but it likely isn't the start of something for the third-year player out of Kansas. In 51 appearances coming into Friday, he was averaging just 9.6 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 22.6 minutes per game.

Marcus Morris and his brother are currently under investigation for a possible assault that occurred Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in front of a gym in Phoenix, CBS Arizona reports.

Phoenix is currently not making any comment on these allegations and the only thing fantasy owners can do is wait to see how this plays out. The Morris twins are innocent until proven guilty, so mulling over suspensions is a little presumptuous until actual facts come out.
