Marcus Morris blows up off bench Tuesday (Dec 10 12:00 ET )
Marcus Morris scored 25 points off of the bench in Tuesday's game against the Heat, adding five rebounds, four assists, two steals and five 3-pointers in 37 minutes.
The Scoop:Morris played 23 minutes to Tucker's 31 during Monday's loss as head coach Jeff Hornacek attempted to put Morris with a unit that would get him more shots. "For me as a basketball player, it should come natural," Morris said. "If I go to a different unit, I still have the same mindset. I still am going to compete. I still want to win. It's the same for me." While Morris holds some deep league value, he can be safely left on the waiver wire in standard fantasy leagues.
Marcus Morris will shift to the Suns' bench on Tuesday, allowing P.J. Tucker to start at small forward vs. the Pacers.
The Scoop:Morris has been struggling offensively while Tucker has played well since returning from his season-opening suspension, so this isn't a surprising move. Hopefully the demotion will light a fire under Morris.
Marcus Morris came off the Suns' bench on Tuesday for seven points and six rebounds in 23 minutes.
The Scoop:P.J. Tucker took Morris' spot in the starting lineup, but Marcus still logged the most minutes of any reserve. That's encouraging enough to hold him in deep leagues, but he belongs on the waiver wire in standard fantasy formats.
