The Scoop:We could see this lineup for the first three games of the regular season with P.J. Tucker suspended. And if Marcus continues to play well alongside his brother, it could stick even after Tucker is ready.
Marcus Morris scored 14 points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes in the starting lineup on Thursday.
The Scoop:He is expected to start at small forward on opening night and should have some nice value in the first three games. Fantasy owners can give him a look for short-term value in all leagues and he could provide enough value in 14-team formats.
The Scoop:It will only be temporary with P.J. Tucker suspended for the first three games. Morris can play both forward positions and should get minutes in the low 20s even while the team is at 100 percent. He'll be an interesting plug-n-play option on opening night after owning the Lakers last season.
Marcus Morris started at small forward on Wednesday and had 10 points, seven rebounds, one assist, four steals and two 3-pointers on 4-of-7 shooting in 24 minutes.
The Scoop:We've got P.J. Tucker starting at SF for the Suns this season, but he hit just 1-of-5 shots for two points, two rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block, despite playing a team-high 30 minutes. If Marcus can somehow win the starting SF job for the Suns, you'll want to think about using a late flier on him this season.
