Morris totaled 21 points (8-12 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 rebounds and one assist across 25 minutes during a 109-102 win over the Nets on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Morris was moved into the starting lineup and took advantage as he put up a season-high 21 points and gathered his first double-double of the season. He has played pretty well over the last four games, with averages of 15.3 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.0 three-pointers made per game. As he continues to get more minutes, Morris looks like be could useful to owners in needs of points, rebounds and three-pointers.

Morris will move back into the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nets, Jay King of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Celtics continue to change up their starting frontcourt depending on the opposing matchup, with Morris and Aron Baynes moving back and forth between the top unit and the bench. In a matchup with the Nets, the Celtics are opting to switch to their smaller lineup, featuring Morris at power forward next to Al Horford at center, while bringing Baynes off the bench. Despite the promotion, however, that likely won't change up his playing time much, as he's hovered in the mid-20's for minutes no matter where he's played over the last four games.

Morris will shift to a bench role for Sunday's matchup with the Raptors.

EDGE Analysis

Morris has started three of the last four games, but will shift back to the bench Sunday, with Al Horford and Aron Baynes working with the top unit. That's likely an effort by the Celtics to match the size of Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valalciunas of the Raptors, though it wouldn't be surprising if Morris re-entered the starting five in short order. That said, Morris' demotion could cause him to lose a few minutes.

Morris posted 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and seven rebounds across 23 minutes in Friday's 90-87 win over the Hornets.

EDGE Analysis

Morris stepped up his offensive game in the absence of both Al Horford (concussion) and Kyrie Irving (face, concussion), generating his third double-digit scoring effort in the four games he's suited up for thus far. The seven-year veteran also played some lockdown defense on Kemba Walker in a key late-game possession, forcing a misfire on the latter's step-back jumper. Morris brings a complete package of multi-category offensive production and stellar defense, meaning that he should see plenty of minutes with which to reward fantasy owners going forward.

Morris produced 18 points (7-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two assists, one rebound and one steal across 25 minutes in Wednesday's 107-96 win over the Lakers.

EDGE Analysis

After resting Monday (knee), Morris returned with a vengeance on Wednesday, providing a much needed scoring punch with Al Horford (concussion) not playing for Boston. In addition to missing Horford, Boston also lost Jayson Tatum (ankle) nine minutes into the contest. The well rested Morris responded, draining his first three pointers as a Celtic. The status of Horford and Tatum is unknown for Friday's contest versus the Hornets, which may lead to the C's again leaning on Morris and Aron Baynes for extra scoring.

Morris (rest) will draw the start at power forward for Wednesday's matchup against the Lakers, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Morris sat out the team's previous game for rest, but has been given the green light and the start for Wednesday's game. With Al Horford (concussion) out, Morris may be tasked with more offensive and rebounding resposibilities than usual. In two games so far this season, he's posted 10.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.0 assist across 20.5 minutes per contest.

Morris will sit out Monday's game against the Hawks for rest, Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Morris has played in just two games this season since being cleared from a knee injury, so coach Brad Stevens will elect to hold his big man out in the second night of a back-to-back to limit the strain on his knee. Aron Baynes will move back into the starting lineup with Morris out, providing a temporary uptick in value for him. That being said, Morris should return to the top unit come Wednesday's tilt with the Lakers.

Morris posted 12 points (4-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds and four assists from 23 minutes in Sunday's 104-88 win in Orlando.

EDGE Analysis

Morris looked surprisingly comfortable with his new Boston teammates in his first start for Boston. Sunday was only Morris' second game in Celtic green, but he naturally fit into Boston's ball movement schemes and defensive switches. The only negative so far is Morris' 0-5 shooting from the three point line. Boston's roster is deeper than Morris experienced in Detroit, so it's expected that Morris will player fewer minutes this year than his past two season with the Pistons. This means a slight decline in his per game counting stats should be expected.

Morris will start at power forward for Sunday's game against the Magic.

EDGE Analysis

Morris made his season debut on Friday, posting nine points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover across 18 minutes. He didn't have any issues with his knee and is set to reclaim a spot in the top unit after starting all 79 games he played in last season with the Pistons. Look for Morris to see a bigger workload Sunday after getting a game under his belt, though there's certainly a chance coach Brad Stevens continues to monitor him closely. Aron Baynes will head to the bench in the corresponding move.

Morris (knee) will make his season debut Friday against the Thunder, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Morris will make his first appearance in a Celtics uniform Friday after going through multiple full-contact practices earlier in the week. Per coach Brad Stevens, Morris will only play in one-half of the team's upcoming Sunday/Monday back-to-back set, which includes matchups with the Hawks and Magic.
